Living Your Five

livingFive_02

Recently on Twitter, Kay Cassidy sent me a tweet (it is a tweet right?) that said, “Sheila, I know this is right up your alley!” I clicked on the link that took me to the Living Your Five website.  The time was almost 1 am this past Monday morning.  I was leaving town at 5 am to drive 4 hours to Leadership training in Grand Marais, MN… my eyes were like sand paper, but from the glimpse I seen of Living Your Five... I knew I wanted to know more.

I quickly tweeted back to Kay that what I seen looked good but I had to get some sleep with the promise I would check it out when I returned home.  I book marked it and shut my computer down.

I returned home late last night, and only this evening have I really had time to finally sit down and catch up on what has been happening here in the blogesphere as I have had no internet available the last two days (I know… it was devastating!)  Tonight I looked more closely at Living Your Five and I actually had to stop reading mid way through to start taking notes.  An idea formed and I had to capture it…. and as I finished reading what Living Your Five was all about…. I was amazed how right Kay was when she had said it was right up my alley.

You must go check this out.  Living your Five is about focusing on what is most important to you and when I say that I dont mean our books…. although in a way they could work into this….  it is more about what pulls at our heart, how can we do good with our passions…  how can we do good?

I highly recommend you stop by and see what Living Your Five is all about.  The founder Kay Cassidy as well as three other wonderful authors,are working together to start something wonderful.  I hope you will really consider being a part of this.  I will post again soon with my five…. for now I wanted to get the word out as during this kick off week the authors are offering their books up as prizes for those who choose to get involved.

What is Living Your Five?

Living Your Five is about making the world a better place, one person at a time. It’s about understanding what you care about most and how you can make a positive difference in your world.

Are you ready to live your Five?

  1. This does look interesting…on my way to check it out as well!

    Glad you’re home!

  2. Thanks for posting the info on Living Your Five! :)

  3. Sounds interesting. Will definitely check it out. :)

  4. I’ll have to check this out. Thanks for passing it along.

    I tried to email you with some good news but the address on your sidebar didn’t patch through. Tried twice.

    Anyway, you won the drawing for The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. I’m very excited for you because this is such a good book.

    I need you to send me your shipping address so I can send it off to the publishers. Sooner that’s done the sooner you’ll have that book in your hands.

  5. I think sites like this are great, but I avoid them like the plague. Stuff like this gets me offtrack of my personal goals. Guess you could say that I am already living by the five…lol! By visiting, I’ll end up adding more stuff on my plate. And I don’t need that.

    • LOL…. I know what you mean! :) In this case it triggered a sense of organization for me that I hadn’t quite thought about before.

      I think I am wired like you – I have to be careful what I see and do because I love doing everything and being involved and that will (and has) led me to total burnout…

      Thanks J Kaye as always. :)

  7. Thanks so much for mentioning Living Your Five, Sheila! I knew it would be your cup of tea. :-) Here’s to changing our world one step at a time!

    • Thanks Kay! I am still working on mine but am putting this into a training session I am doing next week with a group I am going to Honduras with later this year. Still working out the details but feel this is a great tool!
