L is for Living Out Loud
I know you’ve heard this before… Living Out Loud… but what does it really mean?
To me, it means living your life in a way that is noticeable to others. Remember in “Dirty Dancing” when Johnny pulls Baby out of the corner in the dining room? “Nobody puts Baby in a corner”. That is living out loud.
Not letting the “norms'” of society stop you from being who you are, and doing what you do. Living Out Loud is letting people in, allowing things to happen, getting out there, and getting things done.
But, you have to love it. You have to embrace life with both arms wide open. You have to work each and every day to curb the bad mood, and project happiness… even if sometimes you just aren’t feeling it.
Live your life as if it is an example for others. Of course if you’re like me, that’s no problem because, as a mom you live under a microscope. Be an example of happiness and joy. Grasp for the rainbow… who knows you might catch it.
Simply live your life the way you feel it should be lived. Get out there and do what you’ve always wanted to do, no matter the cost, and do it with gusto.
