Who's your favourite blogger? Who inspires you? Draws you back every day to their writing?
His daily messages in my inbox hit me in the heart every time. They stop me in my tracks, put me in the moment, in the now, and make me assess my life... in an instant. Life slows down to that very moment in which I read Leo's posts. To have that power over a moment in someone's life?...to make one think about their journey, their purpose, their values, their happiness.... in one second?.... I think he's a genius. He makes a difference. I admire him immensely.
Leo's latest post, 'How To Live Well,' starts with a quote from Seneca..."Begin at once to live, and count each separate day as a separate life." Boom... instant perspective.
Leo goes on to say: "You need very little to be happy...some simple plant food, modest shelter, a couple of changes of clothes, a good book, a notebook, some meaningful work and some loved ones".... aint that the truth??!!!
Via All Things Happy
Leo says, be happy where you are, right in the moment. Don't wish to be somewhere else. Where you are, who you are with, what you are doing in this very moment.. is perfect...... and be grateful for the teeny tiny pleasures in life. He lists the simple pleasures in his life. What are yours? Mine are: running in the morning and looking at the sky and the clouds and drawing in my breath and saying to myself 'I am alive', listening to my children tell me something so funny they can't get their words out, running into someone and being so excited to see each other we just do the 'giggle and grab', the time in the day before the dawn when I have the peace to blog, a warm shower, the first bite of my favourite sushi. As Leo says, "these simple pleasures are living well, without needing much".
And this: "Want little, and you are not poor. You can have a lot of money and possessions, but if you always want more, you are poorer than the guy who has little and wants nothing". Powerful stuff.
There is much more to inspire, in Leo's latest post HERE. His posts change the course of my days. That's why he is my favourite blogger. He makes my life better through his powerful words.
Have you a favourite? ... a favourite blogger, who inspires your days?
Happy Wednesday... I'm off to the Dentist!... to live in the moment. :(
