Living joyfully is about finding contentment right now. Can we just decide to WANT to be where we are right now? Can we just decide to cherish the uniqueness of this day and this moment? Can we slow down enough to touch, to taste, to really see, to listen, to feel things I may never experience in this way again? In this episode of Calibrate Life we talk about living joyfully right now.

The joy of life is something experienced right now, and only right now, not something we reserve for later.
I heard someone say the other day, “you have to love what you do if you want to be good at it.” Living out our great God-adventure often involves doing things we’d rather not do. So, how to come to embrace and even love doing things we don’t like so much, and to even be good at those necessary things so we can press toward God’s high calling in our lives with excellence? That’s what we are going to talk about in this episode.

Having let go of a lot of significant things about our former life, and having made an ongoing decision to step into a new life, new adventures, and new focus, we’ve found these 6 things to be true and necessary for taking risks and going in unproven new life directions.
How do you know when an open door is the right door? Sometimes we have to wait so long and opportunities are so hard to come by that when we have an opportunity we feel we should seize it. In this episode we are discussing doors, when to walk through them and when to walk past them.
Setting and maintaining the right pace is critical to your spiritual, emotional, intellectual, and physical health. In this episode we discuss running at a healthy pace. Look around. Re-set your pace. Look at the distance. Look at the season. Take a moment to consider the strategy of your pace.
