To Laugh Often and Much. Living the Creative Life

About two years ago, I started a creative journaling process. Each morning, I read for 10 minutes. Journal thoughts, concerns, to do’s, favorite quotes. There is more to this process. Check out Lisa Sonora‘s website to learn about her books and courses. Lisa believes that journaling is more than being creative. It is about documenting your journey as a human; helping your learn more about yourself; and helping you create the life that you truly want to live.

Anyway, back to this morning. Read this great quote and had to share it.

Quick question: How many books do you read at the same time? ( I think I always have about 5 books.). I read this quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson with regard to his best advice on living a good life.

“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciate of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know that one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”

Have a great day and I hope you doing something creative TODAY.
