a simple act of REVOLUTION…

There is a lot of heartache in the world…on social, personal and spiritual levels.

Right now it seems like an ACT of REVOLUTION to manage stress.  For the sake of my mental and physical health, I’m simply trying to lighten up.

Every morning, before I get out of bed, I smile (which feels weird, but actually changes your chemistry) and ask myself: How do I want to show up in the world today? 

The feel good neurotransmitters of dopamine, endorphins and serotonin are released when we smile.  This not only relaxes your body but can also lower your heart rate and blood pressure.

Sometimes when I awaken, I want my sorrow or my anger…not too often though.  However, when asked that question, the answer is almost always comically obvious.

We’re all energetic beings. 

How we show up in the world has a ripple effect—both positively & negatively.

How do you want to show up in the world today?

  1. A reall great question: how do you want to show up in the world today? We are headed out to see some relatives we haven’t spent much time with in the past 20 years but they were always very sweet and kind….when told we were coming for the day, we could hear their excitement and gratitude……Today I want to show up with big smiles and hugs and love and gratitude to cherish moments with those who matter. Thank you for sharing

  2. Lisa – what a great reminder to start the day with a smile! You have a beautiful smile that triggers many in return. Take care and have a wonderful holiday season.
