Banjo Inspiration

Recently, I discovered the song “Going to Mars” by Judah and the Lion. I LOVE THE SONG. The sound is great (never thought I’d rock to a banjo, but they have some amazing songs that make me do just that), and the lyrics are just phenomenal.

Huge reminder to dream big! We can do anything. I believe that 100% and I am grateful for reminders in the most uncanny of places ๐Ÿ™‚

One word

A few years ago, I discovered this book:

I loved it! The idea is each year, choose a word (rather than a resolution) that you want your life/year to be about. In the past I have chosen “Inspire” and “growth”. This year I choose “serenity.” I love the idea of picking a word that will serve as a theme for the year. This year, I discovered this: http://www.my intent.org

It’s a way to put your word into use. You “stamp” your word (using chisel type letters and a hammer) into a gold or silver token and put it on a bracelet, keychain, necklace, etc.

I am grateful for new ways that help me stay inspired, keep me on course for living my purpose!

Happy 2018!!

Grateful for Gratitude

As we near the end of the year, I wanted to make a distinct effort to sincerely thank all my amazing patients. I am so grateful for them allowing me to be their family’s Chiropractor, it truly is the best job in the entire universe.

I have also found that the more I make this effort, with a sincere thanks, a hug, or whatever means makes the most sense… I feel better and better in side.

Gratitude grows the heart of the grateful one ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

Happy Holidays and I am SOOOOO thankful for all my patients, readers, co-workers and friends!

Happify!

Every morning, I get 3-5 emails from positive psychology/motivational/inspirational websites. I love them! They help set the stage for a positive day, and help me focus on the GOOD things in life! Today, I really loved the quick read from HappifyDaily.ย ย 

I especially loved this excerpt:

“Does this mean that we should lower our expectations or accept reality just as it is? Not at all! Change and growth happen right in the tension between our reality and our ideal life.”

It’s about loving “the grind” between aspirations and reality. I am grateful for the tension that helps me become a better father, husband, doctor, friend and person :)!

Rules of the universe

I am so grateful for some of the unwrites “laws” of life. One enormous one is that you cannot out-give the universe. When we give joy, we receive joy. When we lift others up, we are lifted up. When we help others, our own burdens are decreased. These aren’t “mystical”, they are 100% reality. I am grateful that when I practice kindness, compassion, love, and gratitude all of these flow back into my life over and over again!

Like-minded awesome people

Last night we had a regional meeting with some amazing Chiropractors and their amazing Chiropractic Assistants. It was a great meeting. We focused on the importance of goals, but how goals don’t “drive” us, it’s the purpose behind the goals, the WHY that truly drives. I was honored to speak at the event on the subject and even more honored to be a part of such a special group of people. We don’t get together to discuss billing, or insurance, or xrays or etc. We get together to see how we can serve others better. Our missions “jive” in that we just want to help as many people as we can, and we get together to help each other along that path!
