Never Too Late

Posted on Jul 28, 2015

Part of living with your whole heart means not dwelling on “if only” or “too late.” It means grabbing opportunities as they come and looking forward to the next great thing. It means welcoming challenges, reinventing yourself, and walking into each day with the intention to seize it.

When you live with all your heart, “if only” and “too late” simply disappear. Time is given to all of us in measures we can’t predict. But whole-hearted living teaches you that there is no weighing joy against time, because both are immeasurable. Rather than race against time, you stroll alongside it, filling the minutes with happiness as they come. You take every moment you’re given to make the most of the beautiful life in front of you.

Singer-songwriter Lucy Billings knows a thing or two about reinvention, and about flinging it in the face of “too late.” After building a twenty-year career as a corporate lawyer in California, Lucy packed up her guitars (and her cat!) and moved to Nashville to become a folk singer. She was 61 when she made this brave leap, and now she’s recorded three albums and is busy penning songs for her fourth. According to Lucy’s website, “The songs of the upcoming 2016 release reflect Lucy’s current journey and hopefulness, with topics ranging from socially relevant issues such as bullying, ageism and the inevitability of change, to following your heart and embracing new purpose and possibilities.” Find more about Lucy Billings at oprah.com, and at LucyBillings.com.

What are you holding back on because you think it’s too late? Take another look. It’s never too late to live with all your heart.

Freedom, Joy, and Summertime

Posted on Jun 25, 2015

Freedom, Joy, and Summertime

The smell of barbeque is in the air. Your friends are on their way over with a cooler full of tasty warm-weather treats. The sun is out, and it’s calling you like a beacon. It’s time to answer. Put away the to-do list, put away your phone, put on your swimsuit, and get outside. It’s time for summertime joy. 

July is the perfect time for summer traditions. Every moment looks like a perfect postcard sent from the most wonderful vacation. This is the time of year when hotdogs and Popsicles are the perfect meal. When the kids run ecstatically around the yard waving sparklers and playing tag. When you get to float on your back, free and relaxed, on water that’s glinting like Swarovski crystals. When kisses “hello” taste like watermelon.

Revel in summer, because this is the time when living with your whole heart comes almost automatically. The tension in your shoulders melts away to a sense of carefree ease. Be grateful for every freedom your great nation affords you, for every second of fun and play.

Go ahead-jump in! Here’s to a season full of sun, sparkle and whole-hearted living!



6 Ways to Transform Your Summer

Posted on Jun 10, 2015

Summertime and the living is easy. Put on your favorite sandals and those new shades, and feel the sand between your toes. Summer is the time to kick back, enjoy an ocean breeze and feel the warmth of the sun.

As the first day of summer approaches, we have been thinking of ways to make the most of the warmer months. Consider these six small but meaningful ways to transform your life while the days are long and your energy is high.

  1. Start a new morning ritual. The sun is rising by 5:30 a.m. these days, so if you wake up even 10 minutes earlier than usual, you can have a little time in the sun. Take a walk around the block, or enjoy your first cup of coffee on the patio.
  2. Buy yourself flowers. Get a whole bouquet of your favorites and put them wherever you’ll enjoy them the most – or break them into smaller arrangements and leave them in each room of your home. Don’t have a favorite flower? Get yourself to the florist and start exploring!
  3. Selfies! Show off your smile and your summer glow. Just look at how beautiful you are! Tag your Instagram photos with #ChamiliaSummer.
  4. Create a reading habit. Walk to the library and check out a few great beach reads. When the dreaded winter comes, check out your favorite again and transport yourself back to this great summer.
  5. Strike up a conversation. Introduce yourself to that neighbor you keep meaning to meet, say thanks to your mail carrier, or turn the tables on your cashier and ask him how his day is going.
  6. Make time for you! Don’t overschedule yourself this summer. Leave time for the things you love to do most.

As always, and most importantly, remember to live with your whole heart!
