Cultivating your Best-Self

What does it mean to be your best self? One thing I know is that it is NOT jumping out of bed everyday with unlimited energy and joy for the world… Instead it is “doing what you can, with what you have, where ever you are“.

It is the daily human battle. It is making the most of the good days, and doing what you can on the bad days. To help me cultivate my best-self I have found the 7 Ls of Life extremely valuable. How do you try and show up each day?
