As life moves forward I am certain of one thing. That thing called zing. You know what I’m talking about. And, no, it is not an imaginary creature from a Dr Seuss book.
Zing is when a thought, an idea or an experience COMPLETELY resonates with you. The Encarta Dictionary defines zing as a lively and exciting quality. For me it sometimes feels like an electric buzz that moves throughout my body. It’s that YES! Factor you’ve heard me talk about.
I feel that thing called zing when I go downhill skiing, fly in a prop plane, dance freely or sing loudly. I feel it when I go to listen to a band that I love or an exceptional musical like Beautiful.
I can hear it in someone’s voice when they are completely aligned with their vision. I can actually feel the zing energy in a room full of people sharing their visions during a vision workshop. Now, THAT is zing!
I now include zing in my daily life. I dance, sing and hula hoop to my heart’s content. Yes, even when it embarrasses my kids. (Especially when it embarrasses my kids!)
Do you feel that thing called zing? Do you include opportunities to experience it in your daily life?
make a habit of moving toward the laughter
turn the music up and sing really loudly in your car
do something off the wall - just because
It may feel awkward at first but stick with it. The more you experience that thing called zing, the more joy you will experience in your life.
P.S. Do you need help feeling that thing called zing? I’ve created a complimentary series of beautifully simple daily affirmations to remind you that you are a delightful gift to this world, that you are capable of so much more than you know and that you rock.
