The chill morning vibes, the expansive thoughts, the freedom to be and do whatever we wanted on any given day. It makes us crave the wild open road… the kind of open road that has no wifi, no traffic, no honking – just time and possibility.

Something that might allow us to encourage you to live with awareness and intention, and in turn, live your moments in the most rewarding of ways. We also wanted everyone to spend as little time on their computers/phones as possible, so without further hesitation, here are 10 of our most favorite quotes to help you BE (the) PRESENT this holiday season… and everyday day in between.

Thoughts: If you find yourself stuck in a routine, numbed out by life, the holidays are the perfect time to TAKE ACTION. Set the intention to DO SOMETHING DIFFERENTLY. Call a family member you haven’t seen for a while, write a sweet card for a friend and leave it on their doorstep. Live life in such a way that it fills your heart with so much love it pours out onto those around you!

Thoughts: The holidays/life in general can be absolutely overwhelming to say the least. Escape to a quiet place for an afternoon and reflect on what’s truly important to you. Write these things down and make a plan to add more of all of it to your life in the New Year. You deserve it!

Thoughts: So maybe dreams of Santa and his magical reindeer delivering piles of gifts via the chimney you don’t have aren’t waking you up before the rooster anymore, what a shame, amiright!? But that doesn’t mean you can’t find something that speaks to those sweet corners of your childhood heart, it’s still the same heart after all, and those feelings have to be stored away somewhere! Awaken them! Try doing something you love 1st thing in the morning – yoga, read a page of your favorite book, go outside and BREATHE, make pancakes… better yet, make pancakes for the whole family! Do something that excites you, no matter how small.

Thoughts: I know we can become jaded by the phrase, “Life is short,” but after living on the road for the past 2 years we have become increasingly aware of how big the world is, how small we are and how quickly time passes by. Stop pretending like you have forever and realize that all we really have is NOW. What you don’t do today, you probably won’t do tomorrow and eventually, you’ll do it never… don’t let that be your story.

Recognize how much you matter to those around you and find the courage to discover what it means to LIVE FROM YOUR SOUL. The less time you spend with technology, the more time you can practice discovering and connecting with the “things” that matter most. YOU can be the greatest gift you give this year.
