What's your imprint?

Leave everything a little better than you found it.

This is huge.

And actually really easy.

It is how I live my life.

Notice a piece of garbage?

Pick it up.

Grumpy store clerk?

Smile and ask them how they are.

Something fell from someones pocket?

Return the item.

A person needs the door open?

Run ahead to help.

Connecting with friends?

Inquire further.

With a group at dinner?

Wait until everyone has sat down to eat.

Having a meeting?

Put your phone away.

Someone down on their luck?

Stop to say hi.

There are countless ways of leaving the world in better shape.

These are easy and they mean a lot.

Kindness is contagious.

It also makes you feel better about your life.

A little goes a long way.

I want to be a person that notices what needs to be done,

and does it.

Not so I can say I did.

But because I can sleep better at night,

and I grow with more awareness.

Take care of one another and it will catch on.

Lend a hand

Listen deeper

Pay attention

Show up

Lead by example

You’ll be surprised how this changes everything.

What do you value?

Our senses are on constant overload.

It’s more important now than ever,

that our thoughts are strongly rooted in our values.

I think this is true for the groups we belong to,

most importantly, our families.

Have you ever asked your partner, children or yourself, what your values are?

It might be time.

If you never think about them or define them, how do you know if you are supporting them?

When my values are clear in my head I make better decisions.

I bounce back from disappointments.

I take things other people do less personal.

Most importantly, my thoughts are in alignment with my highest self.

This is the fullest and best expression of who I want to be and why.

When we define our values, there’s no guessing.

We are better at attracting others with who are like minded.

We are better at showing up for our loved ones, community and ourself in ways that are meaningful.

Values are things that are of great importance in our lives.

They take priority over other things.

They hold great merit and worth for ways we spend our time at work and at play.

The values I hold of highest regard in my life and what they mean to me are:

Authenticity: the willingness to be vulnerable and bold.

Responsibility: taking ownership of my thoughts, feelings and actions

Compassion: the ability to exhibit empathy for myself and all beings everywhere.

Creativity: expressing the spark of my essence that will never die and connects me to the great mysteries of life.

Adventure: from the everyday routines to off trail backpacking, there is an shift of the heart when you allow each new moment to shine.

If you are interested in creating some real intimacy in your life, this will do the trick.

Get cleat about you.

No more excuses.

No more blaming.

The time is now.

There’s room in this for you.

Let’s ride this wave together.
