It’s that time of year when life is renewed and I’m feeling it. I just returned from an absolutely incredible week in Hilton Head with my daughter for spring break. One of the things that made it so amazing was the people and I don’t just mean “my people” because of course they’re amazing. I chose to be on vacation with them (lol). I’m referring to all the other humans we encountered during our stay.
People are everything. Our humanity is what enables us to connect deeply … emotionally … spiritually. People have the ability to make or break an experience. Wherever we are in the world, if the people suck, the vibe will suck too. It’s just how it goes.
The vibe in Hilton Head was high. The people were amazing. Heartfelt, warm, and welcoming. There was nothing pretentious going on or people to impress. Everyone was just out having a good time … living their best life. Smiling … happy … content. There were people of all ages and all walks of life out riding bikes, swimming, running, laughing, talking, eating, listening, observing, reading, and connecting with others.
I’m here to remind you that life is hard and there is some pretty heavy shit going on in the world and you can choose to focus on the lower vibrational stuff that raises your anxiety and causes you to act out of fear OR you can put your mind at ease and focus on the stuff that matters. You … me … our families … friends. That’s where the good stuff happens.
And I’m not talking to those who are presently grieving or experiencing deep loss or hardship. That’s where you need to be. Feel your stuff. Be with your grief. Let yourself be held.
To everyone else … look up and out … smile … breathe in a big gulp of gratitude … savor the sweetness … the positive … the good. Do better … be kinder … smile at the world around you … be present for every call, every conversation, and every digital message you send out into the world.
Be the vibe you wish to feel in the world and enjoy your damn life. We only get one shot at this!
