Live Nice

Live Nice. Yikes, when these two words came to me a few weeks ago, I knew I was onto something. I knew it was to become my mantra. I knew it would become bumper sticker  and T-shirt material. I knew it was something I needed to write about.

So besides the obvious, what is it? A few thoughts for Live Nice in my humble world.

  • Do it the simple way, not out of laziness, but out of purposefulness
  • Take walks in the country, through the woods, or in old city neighborhoods
  • Plant a vegetable garden and reap its harvests with healthy meals and salads
  • Plant a Zen garden and sit in it often with a book and glass of sun tea in hand
  • Meditate often
  • Breathe deep
  • Ride my horse Buzzy  taking small steps when I’m fearful and bigger ones when we’re more sure-footed
  • Call and visit with friends more often: I am blessed to have many good ones
  • Learn new things
  • Embark upon a research project for something truly purposeful
  • Limit technology time and stop wiling away hours doing nothing on the Internet
  • Stop feeling guilty about everything
  • Be kind to people in supermarkets, stores, and public places instead of feeling annoyed by them
  • Focus on writing
  • Drink good wine

So, just a few new behaviors for my Live Nice list. Many, many, many more to follow…Maybe you have something to add?


An author, a teacher, a candlestick maker? I am lucky enough to have followed my muse through a most eclectic life of many careers, many interests, and many friends and liasions. Two beautiful children, now grown and one their own, several books -- the penultimate accomplishment dream come true, a hores trainer, a college professor, and a stint in corporate America to validate my feelings that I never, ever want to go there again. So I donned my ruby slippers and dared to take those different paths, those diverging paths, and that has made all the difference! (Thank you, Robert!)
