Is blogging right for you? You’ve heard the story of people earning 6-figure income from their blogs while they’re traveling the world. Tons of articles are circulating around on how it’ll only take you 15 minutes to build your website and how they make thousands of dollars in 3 months of blogging. You are tempted to ditch your 9-5 job, start a blog, and get a piece of that pie. But, before you do that, I hope this article will shed some insights on what the world of blogging is really like.

In the last post, I wrote about why you need to write your own obituary to create your own guide to mindful living. As in our analogy of building a house, this is the blueprint for your life. As for the foundation, my belief in God and my values are my foundation (I hope my Life Manifesto inspires you to find yours). Now, I am setting up the pillars for living life well by creating a guide to take care of the body, mind and soul.

Today, we’re going to focus on taking care of the body.

We have one life and one body to live it. Healthy body is the cornerstone of living life well.

Yes! We’re going to be talking about death today (I am a Scorpio with Pluto, the god of the underworld, as one of my ruling planets. So, go figure…). Don’t worry! I promise it’s not going to be a really gloomy post. I want to help you write your own guide to a mindful living.

A while ago, a funny picture showed up on my Facebook feed. It was my friend’s picture with her name, a future year of when her time is up, and cause of death engraved on a grave stone. She was using an app that generated this kind of thing. She is still alive and kicking. What’s funny was the cause of death listed: “Die from Laughter.” Well, out of all the possible scenarios, I think that is the best way to go.

We all are going to die someday. We don’t have control on when, where or how it’s going to happen. What we can control is how we want to be remembered afterwards.

putting the pieces back together

Have you ever come across Holstee’s Life Manifesto? I came across it on a magazine while killing time in a dentist’s office. I love it since then and re-read it whenever I need some inspiration or when life throws a curve ball.

Life can be so unpredictable. You could be happily going through life thinking that everything is fabulous. You have a good paying job, a spouse and kids you adore, and a nice house. Out of nowhere tragedy can strike you in the face: losing your job, dealing with health problems, losing someone you love or getting hit by natural disaster. The life that you have built for years could be gone in a moment.
