An Exercise in Conscious Living – It’s Time to Create the Life I Want

Create the Life I Want, Creating My Life - Live Life on PurposeAn Exercise in Conscious Living – It’s time to Create the Life I Want – Think of this as an exercise to dial in the focus of your life with the things that matter.

What if we saw our life through our images? What would you see? If your life were a movie trailer, how would it play?

Are you living the life you want? Are you doing the things you want to do? Are you eating the way you want to eat? Are you spending time with the people who are important to you? Maybe it’s time to say, I am going to create the life I want. It is time to live life on purpose.”

But where to start? Maybe with a close look at the life we are living.

I love that we all take so many images now with the affordability of digital cameras and with the ready availability of camera phones. But when we look back over our images, are they telling the story we want to live? Did we create the life we want? If we take a look around and look at the images, the family, friends, adventures, and spaces in our lives, are they telling the story we want to live? Are we creating the life we want to live?

Are the pictures that you are sharing on facebook representative of the life that you want to be living? Are you doing the things you want to be? Being the person you want to be? Spending time with the people who are important to you?

Are the pictures that you take of your home representative of the space in which you want to live?

What if I thought about pinterest as a way of having a picture of my life and what I love in my life and more of what I want in my life?

These places are a reflection of the life we are living. Is it the life that you want to be living?

An Exercise in Conscious Living – Create the Life I Want

I would like to propose an exercise in conscious living. An exercise where we peer through the looking glass at our lives and use this perspective to weed out the unimportant and focus more on what is important. It is when we document our lives, that we begin to see where we are focusing.

Grab your camera more this year and begin to document your life. Start a 365 project where you take a photo a day. Is what you are seeing in your images the life you mean to be living? It is when I am conscious of how I am living that I can see where I must make changes.

For 2013, I am taking the plunge and will be participating in Project 365. I am documenting my life one day at a time as an exercise in conscious living to create the life I want, focusing on the things that matter. Join me and let’s commit to conscious living.
