if you have one goal...

What if we gauged everything by the level of happiness it inspired us to feel? What if every morning our intention was to feel good? What if we asked ourselves in each situation "does this feel good to me?" And if the answer was no, then we'd have a choice to change our thoughts, our behavior, our life, for the better. To feel good!

If I listen to myself and only myself, instead of what is "supposed to" make me feel good, according to other people, isn't that the ultimate freedom? What works for ME, not based on what anyone else thinks?

Now that is something to practice, people!

{ps- I was part of the Design Your Life series on Jess Constable's blog Make Under My Life yesterday, and you can check it out right here if you're interested! There's a funny picture of me at the top.} :)

Have a terrific weekend!!


  1. So true! And something I struggle to remember...I tend to be a people-pleaser sometimes. I'm reading the Law of Attraction right now. Great wisdom!

  2. this one is really sticking with me. i keep thinking about it. hmmm, that could be very good! enjoy your weekend!

  3. Jess, I just adored your feature on Jess Constable's blog. I'll be going back again to savor it, and to think what my own answers would be. I love how you can have a wonderfully abstract, large concept in one breath and something so practical in the next (i.e., the dish-washing metaphor). Your voice is so engaging.

    And yes, that picture is funny--but wow, that dress is amazing! Bee-yoo-tiful.
