Welcome to Posh Blog! In this section of the blog I will be talking about all the things that I do, places that I go, things that I eat, and people that I see that help me live Posh.
So if you’re like me your first question is what does it mean to live Posh? Living Posh is basically about living well. It’s about living life on purpose and not waiting for life to happen to you. It’s about thriving and not just surviving. Posh is about living life on your own terms.
Living well is actually something that I’ve spent a lot of time over the years learning about. I told Alli that it was a little odd for me to be writing this section of the blog . To be honest I’ve spent most of my life as a very timid, insecure person always waiting for the world to give me permission to live the life I wanted.
In my struggle there are a few things I’ve learned that are essential to living a life that I’m excited about:
1. Make a decision
The first step to living life on your terms is deciding that you are going to do it. As busy people it is easy to just live your life on auto pilot. Wake-up, go to work, come home, pay bills, eat, spend time with loved ones, sleep, repeat. Life keeps moving, and unless we change our patterns and do the the things we actually want to do, life will not stop to give us time to do it.
2. Insist on living the life you want
Even after you’ve made a decision to live a passionate life, so many things are going to come up everyday that will attempt to keep you in the same old pattern. They’ll be boyfriends that you need to spend time with, or kids to feed, or mothers to please, or bosses to impress, and the list goes on. No matter who tries to put their needs before your own, you must insist on doing the things that make you feel happy.
3. Do one thing every day that make you feel alive.
When you think about your perfect life, what are you doing? Do that thing everyday. Change takes time and before you know it, that 10 minutes you put aside everyday to paint is going to turn into a whole gallery of your art if you are consistent and persistent in the pursuit of your best life.
I love to read, so everyday I try to read books that motivate and inspire me to be my best self. As a result I’ve become a lot more positive and motivated to live more passionately.
What are things that you do to feel alive? I’m excited to explore living Posh together.
Toodles for now!
