Checking in on Week 16‘s task of 50 Weeks to a Lighter More Loving You.

Your task was to WRITE OUT your SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDIOUS (extraordinarily good and wonderful) DAY. It can be a past day or your dream day…or both!


Currently, signs that say,

“Today is a perfect day to have a perfect day!”

seem to be quite popular.   I see them everywhere!

Wondering if PERFECT DAY is the same as a SUPERCALI…etc. Day?  I think so!


One of the words in a thesaurus for PERFECT is AUTHENTIC!

What do you think of when you think of this word AUTHENTIC?

  • real
  • whole
  • true
  • trustworthy
  • pure
  • ?

In Week 16’s blog I said that writing out your SUPERCALI…etc. days will help find keys to a lighter, more loving you.

What may be discovered is that those best, perfect, awesome, wonderful days are when you are truly yourself, when you are AUTHENTIC, REAL, TRUE TO YOU.

This is living…

  • from what you value,
  • from what you are about,
  • from what you truly believe,
  • when you do what you say you will do,
  • when you trust yourself,
  • when you choose love over fear,
  • when your best self comes through.

This can be done while relaxing on the beach with your pina colada or when attending your best friend’s funeral.    SUPERCALI…ect. days aren’t always “happy”.  They can still be AUTHENTIC, PERFECT, EXTRAORDINARILY GOOD and WONDERFUL.

Review what you wrote in regards to your SUPERCALI…etc. day(s).  Can you see some of your values?  What is authentic, true and your “best self” coming through in that day(s)? Feel free to share in the comments!

Cheering You on to a WHOLE SUPERCALI…etc. AUTHENTIC HEART,

CHECK IN for Week 12: JAR OF FUN

Your task for this week of 50 Weeks to a Lighter More Loving You is to make a JAR OF FUN.

This could be for Family Fun, Date Night Fun, or Artist/Adventure Day Fun.  Have you done yours yet?


When my daughter was growing up, we had a FAMILY FUN JAR.

This FUN JAR was one of the best things we did as a family to make sure we…

  • had QUALITY family time,

  • built our relationships,

  • had fun,

  • make wonderful memories together,

  • and grow personally.


How did we grow personally?

Each of us in our family added activities to the jar. Only a certain number of those activities could cost money; i.e. if we each put 5 activities in the jar, only one could cost money to do.

Who’s ever activity got picked also decided on what the meal was for that night.

All the details of dinner and the activity were decided by the author of the activity (unless they needed a bit of help.)

The big thing was, there was a rule that we HAD TO DO whatever was decided for dinner and for the activity!  (All within safety and appropriateness.)

We all became better at:

  • being creative

  • planning

  • problem solving

  • knowing each others likes and needs,

  • and, most of all, BEING WILLING TO DO WHAT ANOTHER WANTED without complaining, swaying or manipulating things to our own liking.

There is a lot to gain from a Jar of Fun!

Encouraging you to a Whole WILLING Heart,

Barbara

2018 Week 12: JAR OF FUN

images (1)

Your task for Week 12 of a Lighter More Loving You is to create a JAR OF FUN!

A JAR OF FUN for…

  • your FAMILY, or

  • for DATES NIGHTS with your spouse, or

  • an ARTIST/ADVENTURE DAY for yourself, or

  • DO ALL THREE!!


In Week 11’s Check In, I said that an aspect of people who have “long and happy lives” is QUALITY CONNECTION.  Doing the WAVE is a good way to start to acknowledge and connect with others; to build QUALITY CONNECTION, however, takes time.

Having FUN TIME (or SNOOPY MOMENTS) together with your family, spouse, partner, or yourself, is the best way to forge that QUALITY CONNECTION.


The idea is simple:

Take a jar, write down activities to do, put them in the jar, choose one a week, and do them!

What is not so simple is making the TIME.

If you take the time to make and do the jar, you are more likely to make the time!

Need some ideas of what to put in the jar?  There are plenty of resources on-line.

FAMILY FUN IDEAS on Google

DATE NIGHT IDEAS 

ARTIST/ADVENTURE DAY IDEAS

You can even have “MAKING THE FUN JAR” as your first idea! The jar doesn’t have to be decorated.  Coming up with your ideas is all that is needed!
Feel free to share some of your ideas here.

Cheering You On to a Whole Jar Full of Fun Heart,

Barbara
