I have been doing The Desire Map this year with Danielle La Porte and when organizing today as a challenge this week I wanted to “get back into the swing of things” per say. I took out my Desire Planner and opened it up to May. This is what was in the front cover and I thought “sounds like me!”
My father passed at ayoung age (42) and I have been throug a lot in life. I could cry, be miserable ro be fabulous. I chose the latter. I truly believe in living life to the fullest, taking care of myself and being authentic and real. I have been wanting to share something like this and..
“Well, I couldn’t have said it better if I tried” so here is what I read and what I wanted to share with you today.
In Hour of the fact that Life is Short
in honour of the fact that life is short:
ecstatic sex, quitting, and wearing your best
wear your white shirts. get them pressed. ( I wear my good clothes all the time)
use your good dishes — everyday. (i do)
shave on weekends.
do not wait for special occasions. ( i don’t)
do not tuck your best away in the drawers, in the back of the closet, in your heart.
don’t wait for holidays or invitations.
declare that your today is the special occasion. ( I declare it every day)
call instead of emailing. (it feels so good to connect.)
go for coffee. ( or talk on the phone at least)
take care of it.
renounce your glory days. you’ve told all of those stories more than twice.
wear perfume for yourself. ( i do)
toss your only-wear-around-the-house clothes and let your good clothes graduate to around-the-house status. ( i love this phrase)
intend to feel good all of the time. (and do it)
make ecstatic sex a priority. (this deliberateness will make you more creative, productive and generally gracious. on your death bed, you will think about all the amazing sex you had this lifetime.)
burn your to-do list. ( i have)
write poetry. one a day.
make a point to be as encouraging as possible, as much as possible, to everyone possible. (Be Fabulous)
don’t look back.
if you feel like you’re always failing, consider that this is part of being an artist. let it be a divine inclination. keep going.
eat real food. (does this mean I have to stop eating pink cereal?)
often refuse to be in the presence of people who make you feel repressed, anxious, or pull your frequency down. ( this can be hard, but your soul will thank you)
do not entertain haters. ( DO NOT)
send light to the haters.
give it away. you probably don’t need it and someone else does.
turn off the tv.
burn candles. during the day. ( i do, green, brown and white, sometimes pink)
fall in love. with yourself. with the person you’re with. with the persons in your orbit.
because no one is perfect, but you can let the love be perfect for the both of you.
because everyone — everyone — is a doorway to God.
because you can get there from here.
because life is short.
( Live it, Breathe it, be it, every damn day..the choice is up to you…Be Fabulous,)
Until Next time,
XOXO Trisha Trixie
