My BE List

Good evening / night :) 

I am sitting here watching the Thunder game and we are WINNING! I hope they pull out a dubya! Anyways, while watching I thought I would share what goes on above my TV. This is my "BE" painting / list. It's pretty giant. It was in my room but I moved it out to the living room so I could see it more often. The point of my "BE" list is to have a visual daily reminder full of good & positive "BE" goals. I found this really inspiring list on one of the blogs I read and I started reading it and I thought - man, I should really create something for my apartment so that I can remind myself of these daily. So, I bought a canvas and got scootin on some reflection time. I used some from the list and then I made some up. My process went like this... blank canvas - write list with sharpie - circle important words that stood out to me - realize how many circles were on it - overwhelmed by circles - thought oh well... its just a reminder list - paint a giant "BE" on it. Done. :0) This list is something I look at every day and it reminds me to try and be the best person I can be to people and myself every single day. 

Some favorite ones are:

1. Be happy. Be grateful. Be real. Be positive. Be selfless. Be honest. Be human.
2. Always be good to the people you love. 
3. Spend some time alone.
4. Once a year, go someplace you've never been.
5. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful, or joyful.
6. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully. 

goodnight :)
