Zest adds flavor to life!
Are you zesty?
“A seasoned woman is spicy,” Gail Sheehy
This isn’t the first time I’ve written about zest. I have always promoted the need to have something zesty to look forward to.
The past few weeks I’ve focused on your creativity, taking yourself on a date and getting on the dance floor.
I hope you saw yourself in these posts and are ready to add zest to your life!
Something zesty to look forward to.
“The quality of life is in proportion, always, to the capacity for delight.” Julia Cameron
It is difficult to have capacity for delight when you live in the land of regret. If you are always looking to the past, it’s hard to see a zesty future.
To stop dwelling in the past, first learn to delight in the present by taking time to be grateful for all the good that you’ve created in your life.
And then look to an exciting future by intentionally planning something zesty to look forward to. This excercise creates more of what you love.
Our need for zest
Midlife is the perfect opportunity to be intentional about your need for zest.
As a midlife woman, it’s time to unleash your spice. It’s time to defy the rules and expectations you’ve followed and start doing more of what delights you.
Working towards a dream or goal, planning a vacation or even planning a garden gives meaning to your life and creates excitement.
Stay open to opportunities for zest
Do you have a list of zesty things to look forward to?
Here’s a great place to start…
Create a list 20 things you like to do. Don’t overthink it or worry if you can’t come up with 20. Once you are open to what delights you, more ideas will flow.
Pick one item and describe how you will feel when you are planning it and doing it.
