Creating Passionate Value for All – Should vs Must from Elle Luna

elleluna_shouldmust3

Today’s inspiration, artist and designer, Elle Luna, and her 100 Day Project. The idea is simple. Choose one action that feels like passion for you and do it for 100 days.

Need ideas? set out to meet 100 new people, take 100 cool photos,  volunteer for 100 hours,

whip up 100 new recipes, do 100 jumping jacks – whatever floats your boat.

My 100 days will be to intentionally and deliberatly set out to create one thing of

true value each day to share with others –

while not looking for anything in return.

It might be as simple as a smile, a hug, a kiss, a love letter, a text, a meal,

whatever inspires me that morning.

Now that’s intentional fun.

It is one thing to read and listen to inspiring thoughts, another to put in the effort to practice them. So if life is made of precious moments than I am inspired to create moments that spark joy. To write a better story every day. To live with more intent.

Everything we do brings joy.

Brushing our teeth, cooking our breakfast, walking in the meditation hall — everything we do, every step, every breath should bring joy and happiness to us. Life is already full of suffering; we don’t need to create more.
