Life is in the little things

5 things to do if you want Inspire, Serve, and Grow

1.  Buy a shirt from this organization


Every week Sevenly supports a non-profit organization through the sales of shirts and hoodies.  The style and cause changes weekly so there are always new things to check out.  It is a great site to learn educate you about organizations that are striving to make a change, to save a life, to be love.

2.  Connect 

Being a part of a community is so important to overall health, happiness, and well being.  Call up an friend just to say hello and see how they are doing, get in touch with a loved one or relative. 

The only way to have a friend is to be a friend.

3. Serve

Help someone.  Reach out.  If you see a need try to fulfill it.  People all around you need help.  It doesn't have to be profound or life changing.  Just simply helping an elderly person reach something up on a high shelf at the store, pulling up your neighbors trash can from the street, writing a letter to someone who has inspired you and let them know.

4. Be Mindful

It is so easy to get trapped in our own little worlds, we loose touch of those around us, the interactions that we miss, the opportunities to be present.  Instead of flying through life unaware of what is going on around you, stop for a moment and observe.  Pay attention to those around you, listen if they are talking. Don't multitask.

5. Try something new

Are you stuck doing the same thing everything day? Do you take the same route to work? Eat at the same restaurants?  Watch the same TV shows?  Branch out!  

Take a new route to work, try a new restaurant (or even better cook a new dish at home), turn off the tv and talk to your loved ones, read a book or spend time outside.

You only have one life to live, live it to it's fullest!!
