“If you want to lead an extraordinary life, find out what the ordinary do–and don’t do it.”
Tommy Newberry

We all know that life can be frustrating and overwhelming at times. And that pulling up the covers, or numbing the pain with one too many glasses of wine, or distracting ourselves by always being too busy is tempting.

.
Yet we need to remind ourselves this is our chance at being kind and brilliant and compassionate. Our time to love, and create, and change lives. Our time to nurture family, and believe in our self, and dance in the moonlight is now.

.
You can lead an extraordinary life by embracing you in all your glory. Here are a few tips to help you make an ordinary life seem like one that is extraordinary;

.
Embrace your strengths and stop focusing so much about your weaknesses.

.
Practice kindness.

.
Be a hero to someone. Help someone today.

.
Stop comparing yourself to others. Compare yourself to who you were last week, last month or last year. Are you moving forward?

.
Set boundaries with your time, energy and money. Respect them.

.
Ignore the haters. It is your life and your choice.

.
Fall in love with yourself a little more each day: treat yourself kindly, protect your passions, allow yourself space to grow, believe in your gifts, tend your ‘garden’.

.
Begin to grow and see the sunshine in each day. Make today an extraordinary day.

.
“The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.”
