- Go outside. Enjoy the season, weather and what nature has to offer locally. Okay, it's cold during our 5:30 am run but it's exhilarating! One thing I miss about California is the beach. When I'm at the beach, I miss Utah's mountains. Where ever you are, enjoy where you are, but get out.
- Get unhooked. Put down your phone, IPad, computer, or whatever has you connected and disconnected from people. Time is short and if you want to develop real relationships that last a lifetime, your life starts now. Enjoy the journey with family and friends, not with your electronics. Becoming engaged with conversation and activities with people is so much more rewarding. Make memories from doing, not from just social media posting.
- Be passionate about something. Everyone has a niche and that is what makes life beautiful and interesting. Find what is yours and develop it. This might require an exploration. You may discover you have many passions and talents...even better!
- Be grateful. More than ever, I feel blessed for all that I have been given. Large to small, every thing I touch and can't touch I am grateful for. Each day is a gift. I love my family. I have great friends. I'm thankful for my job. I'm thrilled that I can park my car in the garage! With that in mind, it has really changed my attitude about seizing each day and being thankful for the journey.

"It's a Small World" for 40 min. with the family is now a cherished memory :)
