There was so much information given to me at Alt Summit and I still feel like it's all sinking in. I thought that all of the information that I found valuable was a lot, so that's why I have a 2 part post for you. Here is my second and last wrap up post of my time at Alt Summit in Palm Springs at the colorful Saguaro.
Another favorite speaker of mine was Alison from The Alison Show. The title of her key note was "Make Your Life the Party that You Just Can't Miss!" That made me smile from the get go and throughout the whole presentation I was reminded to soak up every bit of life and appreciate all the hard work that goes into everyday. She talked about 3 ways in how to make our lives happier and I wanted to share with you all. Here it goes:
1) Determine your priorities.
Once you have these in place, you can go back to them constantly and refer to them as guidelines for myself.
2) Focus on my unique strengths.
Basically, you do you! There is no reason for me to hold onto the person I think I should be. I can give myself permission to "love the crap out of who I am now." Whatever strength you have, whether it be painting, public speaking, organization or a great listener, USE IT and LOVE YOURSELF for it.
3) Clear out the party poopers.
Oh my goodness! I loved this point. There is no reason for us to surround ourselves with people who don't believe in us or are going to bring us down. Our goal is to be happier, so it's a fact that we need to associate with folks who inspire us and believe in us.
I just thought it was so awesome that Alison dedicated her talk to being happy, because that's so essential to us and our growth.
By the way, she hosts these awesome dance parties in her home town and now it's on my bucket list to go to one!! Who wants to P A R T Y?!?
