What does it mean to be living a good life? One of the most awesome things about creating a good life is that we each have our own vision of what a good life means to us. For me, a good life is not just about the material possessions, but about leading a life without limitation, being happy in my body, experiencing an overall sense of abundance and well-being.
A good life is ours to design.
There's no specific format for how to live a good life - only you know how to create it for yourself. Personally, a good life to me means living in the moment as much as possible. It is also about having a sense of peace and joy, and a sense of possibility, expansion and gratitude for everything and everyone around me. To take in every and all experience fully and to laugh, cry, and love as much as possible every day. Far too many people get caught up in the mad rush of a hectic routine lifestyle and grow completely numb and unaware of the amazing moments that make life magical. Living with awareness in the moment allows me to notice what lights me up and what doesn't. I have discovered that creating a good life requires that I choose what lights me up, again and again, each and every day. It is about choosing to truly be me, regardless of what's going on in the rest of the world, or whether anybody else likes it or not. Choice, after all, is the single greatest element of life.
The most important elements in my current life are the freedom to follow my awareness, seeking out new experiences, and doing what I love. My two favourite things in life are traveling and being a catalyst for different possibilities. I take every opportunity to travel to unusual places, exotic foreign countries and blaze new trails that help to get the creative juices flowing. Being in new environments helps me unleash my creative process and allows me to break out of my familiar physical and mental routine. There are many places in this world that open my mind to realities I’ve never imagined in my wildest dreams. These realities inject my awareness with generative perspectives and new possibilities.
Ultimately, being able to live a good life comes down to knowing - what would be joyful to have as our life. So, if we would like to be living a good life, we have got to get to the point where we start to look at what we would like to create as our life. Until we generate it for ourselves, no one will even know it is a possibility. What if our whole life was based on the joy of it and there was no other reason or justification?
