Live Lighter by logging off

Well, it’s Sunday again- and I’m a big advocate of going off line at least one day a week. This may or may not be your day to do it, but I sure hope you’ll choose one in your near future. I’m going to live lighter today by leaving the laptop behind and loving on those in my life by...

Live Lighter by pinning that problem today.

Heavy Living often happens when we carry around our problems without taking a rest. At least heavy living happens like this for me anyway. I have a tendency not to take a break from my problems. I hold them close and tight like my son still (shhhh…) holds his two favorite stuffed cats. We call them “his guys.” The difference is- “His...

Are you called to walk the path less traveled?

The problem. I sat cross legged in the floor of our rental house in Nashville and tried not to cry. Maybe the wine was making me weepy. Or maybe it was the fact that I felt like quitting again. A dull ache had been gnawing at the corners of my confidence longer than I cared to get clear about. I’d failed to hit...

Live Lighter by paying it forward

You never know what’s coming next when you live lighter. Last week I stopped at Starbucks in Jackson, TN, on my way to Nashville. I was outside the shop looking for a trashcan. A kind gentleman paused in front of the glass door and offered to open it for me with a smile and a gesture. My hands were full of...

Live Lighter by foregoing offense.

I often find myself getting offended by the silliest little things in a day. I get my cockles up by a curious tone of voice, a perceived eye roll, a barely audible “huff,” a muttering under the breath- and that’s all before we get out of the house in the morning! It’s actually kinda weird if I step out of my own...

Live Lighter by finding a joke; sharing a joke

Jokes are everywhere. But we often don’t take time to hear or tell them. Most of the time it’s just a matter of being too busy to stop and listen. Other times, we avoid jokes because they come at someone else’s expense. But we can change that. We can find the kind. The light. The positive.   For example- My friend...

Live Lighter by scheduling fun.

I often find it difficult to make time for fun. Life is busy, right? And it can be a bit boring at times. The same thing, day in and day, out can get monotonous.   I can (and am) choosing to have more fun in my every day life, but sometimes I need a change in scenery. Like the trip I just made to...

Live Lighter by eliciting eye ball smiles.

In my regular life I tend to get in a closed off albeit comfortable rut. My son attends elementary school where the college classroom model. He goes to school two days a week for his lectures and labs and tests. He wears a smart looking uniform consisting of a collared shirt and khaki pants. The other three days of the week, he works...

Live Lighter by logging off.

Seriously. I need this. Do you?   What I’m doing today- Turning off my technology. Spending Sabbath chasing after the things that make me laugh. Sharing them face to face or voice to voice with the ones I love.   Happy Sunday! love, amy

Live lighter by noticing what makes us laugh.

Our sense of humor is as unique as our fingerprints. We have a lot in common when it comes to what’s comical. It’s why certain movies, television shows, books, jokes, comedians, and viral Youtube videos, find more success than others. But there’s also ample space for personal preference. When I first began thinking about the art of living lighter, I asked...
