But it made me want to reflect on a few things and define my blog's tiny space in the gigantic Internet world of blogs.
|If I am defining my blog philosophy, I should probably include pictures of mountains.|
Instead, I try to eat and live with a forward-looking view. That is, what will make me feel best today? Tomorrow? A month from now?
|Having a dog? All part of living my best life. How could seeing this not make me feel happy?|
Most of the time what will make me feel best is relatively "healthy" eating, lots of veggies and fruit. But I hate the terms "good" and "bad" foods. When I go to a Mexican restaurant and gorge myself on tortilla chips and guacamole, they taste extremely "good" to me. If covered in cheese, even better. I don't do that every night, but a life without nachos is a life unlived (to me).
Oh, and I don't work out to burn calories. I don't even count calories. I tried to for a while, and yes I lost a few pounds, but it felt so restrictive. That doesn't mean it can't be a wonderful weight loss tool, but I'm not trying to lose weight so why would I do something that makes eating less enjoyable for me?
|Going for a run and watching my dad "run" the mini dachshunds should probably also go in a post about living my best life, right?|
Being strong and fit makes me feel excited and alive, but enjoying baked goods and Tex-Mex also make me happy. (Yes, I'm obsessed with Mexican food and have mentioned it about 5 times already, judge me if you want. Or go out to a Mexican restaurant with me -- even better!)
|This picture in my blog header of me cooking? I'm in Mexico. Making Mexican food. Guacamole, to be exact.|
How did we get to me on my deathbed? That's morbid. Anyway, all of this is just my philosophy on how I can live my most fulfilling life. It's what motivates me as I write this blog, and use having a blog as motivation to live my best life.
How do you try to live your "best" life?
