When is the last time that you stopped, dropped, and thanked yourself for making the decision to love life? Sometimes, we’re so busy tackling our mental to-do list and thinking about “what’s next.” But what about “what’s now?” Now is all we have; it is in the present that we connect with ourselves. That is what j’adore la vie is all about, friends. It is a weekly reminder for us to enjoy the present and celebrate the moments in life that make our hearts sing. We can choose to have those moments every day!
J’adore la vie is a movement encouraging everyone to love life, cherish the present, and savor the moments that make our hearts sing. It’s a mantra that represents letting go of every worry or fear in our lives in exchange for love! We’re going to connect through each other’s happiness! Together, let’s create j’adore la vie!
Breathe. Listen. Dream it. See it. Reach for it. Grab it. Love it. Live it. j’adore la vie.
Today’s #jadorelaviequote of the day comes from a dear friend of mine, who once said: “As you accept and treasure you, the world does too.”
Linz experiences a moment of total serenity after a long run.
“I had a j’adore la vie moment today after my run. Usually I run in the mornings, but today I saved it for the afternoon. I wasn’t really feeling the run, but knew I’d feel great afterwards. I was right. I took a few minutes to myself when I was done to stretch and just appreciate life as it was at the moment: beautiful. J’adore la vie.”
Lisa enjoyed a relaxing morning with her mom, which allowed her to stop and count her own blessings!
“Just spending the day with my lovely mom and representing #FitFluential while out and about and appreciating the moment, and allowing myself to fully enjoy the day.”
