Today’s challenge: Which key tools will you turn to regularly to maintain your mindset and how will you use them effectively?

It’s day 7 and sadly, one of my best friend’s is losing her father today, so apologies, but it feels a little trite for me to be blogging about tools and resources to maintain my freedom-based mindset.

But at the same time, maybe not

Loss…any loss – of life, health, jobs, family etc can be devastating. And it’s times like these that are helpful reminders of how important it is to make the decision to live on your own terms nowwhile you still have a life, while you still have your mind, while you still have a choice.

Nothing – not our job/business, nor our health,  nor the love, loyalty and commitment of our family is promised to us and most certainly not our lives (no matter how young, healthy and immortal we may feel at any given moment).  

Things can change in a split second, at the drop of hat…swiftly…suddenly…instantly.

And knowing that loss (of any kind) rarely if ever comes on our own terms, how much more should we decide to LIVE on our own terms now?

How much longer do we continue to endure unfulfillment, dissatisfaction, the lackluster, the humdrum and ho hum of life on others’ terms?

Why settle, why wait, why hesitate…

Choose today because….

There’s no time like but the present!


P.S. One useful tool that really helps me maintain my mindset: sitting elephants!

Hi I’m Sherice, I wanted to be a snowbird before 40. I wondered, “What’s the point of waiting to travel the world and do work I love?” Today, with my husband, Nathan, we run thriving businesses from the comfort of our own laptops. We spend 6 months a year in Thailand, travel frequently — and spend the rest of our time at home in Canada — at least that’s the plan for now, who knows what the future will bring ;).
