Do cool things!!

I woke up this morning feeling different. I woke feeling like I really want to make more of my life. I want to push out, achieve, accomplish, strive for better, and do some really cool stuff. I just don’t know what that stuff is yet!


My friend forwarded me a link this morning about a guy from Chicago who had given up drinking for 2 years. His article went on to explain how awesome he feels, how much he has achieved, and how taking a 2 year break from drinking has led him to love himself more, buy an apartment, write heaps, and do a whole other bunch of cool stuff. This no drinking thing really is catching on. Not drinking alcohol is truly amazing. This one choice in our busy lives has irrevocably changed my life so significantly, and so it seems hundreds and thousands of other bright sparks out there too.

We are people who are striving for a better life, a clearer perspective, a cleaner body, and the clarity to make better choices. It may not be for everyone, and I am not advocating this, but for me, it has been one of the best choices I have ever made.

I am obsessed with taking photos of the sunset. I love to be out in the nature and capturing a beautiful sky makes me happy. How cool are these colours?

Now that I have more time, more clarity, a sharper brain, and motivation to do more things, I am now brainstorming what I want to do with all this inspirational abundance.

  1. Write a book
  2. travel more
  3. have another photo exhibition
  4. build up an online business
  5. meet a partner
  6. have a baby
  7. get a dog and a cat
  8. foster a child
  9. study something
  10. DO COOL THINGS!! What are they I wonder??? More brainstorming is required!

Any suggestions?

If you had time, money and freedom what would you do?

When you look up at the stars at night, I realise how insignificant we all really are. Our problems are nothing, everything is temporary. Moral of the story: enjoy your life!

I know that I really am in a privileged position, and one that is enviable. It is also very unique and unusual; and if more people had ultimate freedom and options I do wonder what they would do with their time. The reality is we all make our own choices, we choose our lifestyles, circumstances, partners, homes, food; and if there is something we don’t like about our lives, it is up to us entirely to make changes.

Change is inevitable. Change is constant. When nothing appears to change, before you know it, everything has changed.

I am serious about those suggestions, what you would you do with ultimate freedom and choice?

Here is a link to that article I read that inspired my post.

  1. Love this! I’ve come to realize that the way I want to spend my time is reading, writing and creating. So I’m dedicating this year (and hopefully the rest of my life) to these things that make me come alive regardless of if it’s my job or not. SO cool! Wish you well with your cool goals.
