5 Ways to Live the Good Life in 2008

As I reflect on the past year I think about all the things I've accomplished and I give thanks for all the good things that have come my way. So, as I look ahead to 2008 and make my list of things I want to manifest, my body fills with excitement because I know that these things will happen. No longer do I just write down my goal and just "hope" or "wonder" if it will happen. I know without a doubt that these goals will make it to fruition.

What about you? What would you like to manifest in 2008? What are you going to do to make it the best year yet? Here are five ideas to get your mind thinking:

1. Gain a thirst for knowledge by reading more books. I read somewhere that the average person reads no more than 2-3 books a year! Coming from a die-hard bookworm, I think that is insane! I believe that if people did read more then there would be more of us who are more open to other people's ideas and perspectives.

2. Tap into the creative side of your soul. Take an art class at a local community college or make it a point to visit the museum at least once a month. There are some great museums here in San Diego, but they're nothing compared to the museums I saw during my trip to Chicago this past year.

3. Start an online business! Now more than ever it is so simple to start a business online. If you really want to attain wealth and prosperity, starting an online business is the way to go. Kiss that 9-5 job goodbye and really, really live the good life ;)

4. Slow down. Everyone is in a rush to get nowhere these days. If you want to live the good life, you must slow down and just "smell the roses". Meditate every day. Reflect on your values and what is most important to you. Pay attention to what is going on around you. Too often we pass up opportunities because we're rushing through life.

5. Go on a travel journey. Visit a place you've never been to before. Widen your horizons and meet different people from around the world! When I visited Chicago I had the time of my life. I met people who have so much exciting energy.

One of the best parts of the trip was attending the Taste of Chicago, which was a huge food street fair. (Pictured here is me and Karyn, my best friend since 3rd grade who lives in Chicago. We're standing in front of Buckingham Fountain.)
