I’m in Hawaii this week, the sun has just risen and I am sitting a short distance away from the Pacific Ocean on the island of Lana’i. Nature has given me a nudge and I want to remind us both that there is something greater to experience within every day.
And I am not simply referring to the circle of life. But our minds, our focus, the daily actions that we willingly decide to take, and the powerful impact they have upon our lives. And the impact and influence on others lives.
There is more to your everyday than the activities that your current role in life provides.

Below are five intentional practices that will lead us toward making positive change happen in our lives in order to experience the fullness and freedom that is awaiting us.
Take a moment to think about yesterday or the day before. Now consider your actions. Your perspective. Your attitude. Your awareness. There is a greater depth to life than the roles that we each play on the daily.
Take away: Are the patterns that you’ve created within your daily life worth repeating? And if you repeated those days over again throughout your lifetime, would you be satisfied? What actions would you change?
Our habits echo throughout our lives. They create consistent chaos or they create renewal. Oftentimes the experiences that we’ve collected about ourselves and the world around us, have caused us to take on habits (even ones that aren’t becoming). We can become more aware of which cause chaos vs. renewal within our lives, and release the habits that are not directing our life as we intend. We can begin to invest our time and energy toward creating new ones.
Take away: How do you desire to create your life? What habits can you take on board to manifest the lifestyle and characteristics that you desire?
There is something greater to experience within every day. Much more than the activities that our society, our culture or technology provides. Consider the gift of nature or an experience happening before us, that can offer us calm or peace. Or recognizing a unique and unexpected connection that took place with another human being, just when we needed to hear their voice or to release something great into their life.
Take away: Much of taking in the deeper experiences that take place all around us, has to do with mindfulness. What can you incorporate into each day to intentionally become more mindful?
We each have collected many opinions of ourselves over time through the various experiences that we’ve had.
Take away: What have you forgotten about yourself that makes you beautifully unique? A talent? A passion? A gift? And how can you begin using it to serve your greater purpose and the world around you?
It’s not too late. At anytime, you and I can decide to make small or massive changes within our individual lives. At anytime, we can exchange a negative thought for a positive, a doubt for hope, and even hurt for seeking peace and healing. Your story continues for your lifetime.
Take away: What in your life can you begin to exchange?

This is an excellent list. I’m currently working towards be more mindful of my thoughts, emotions, and actions. They are all interconnected and it’s easy to tip the balance.
