I had a moment. A lovely moment of realization. You know that moment when you just feel so fantastic? Have you ever found yourself just all of a sudden realizing that there is no weight on your shoulders? And the carefree act of skipping just might happen as a totally spontaneous act of joy?

Ah, she says with a sense of complete abandonment. I am at this very moment in love with my life. Wow, in love with life? Yes, yes she says, twirling her skirt. So how to fall in love with your life? Follow me. Here, take my hand. We are going skipping right now, because we are really loving our life. Ready? It is a most amazing place to be.

The steps are really easy. The choice is up to you. I highly suggest trying each step out. It just might lead to cartwheels on the main highway of your life!

Have you heard of making yourself a jar of plenty?
Would you be interested in trying this project? It is really fun and insightful. After all, you are the artist of your own life, so why not make it colorful and fun?



jar of plenty


Start Your Own Jar of Plenty

Sit down one day and write down all that is making your heart sing.

Put each loving thought on a separate piece of paper.
And then fill a favorite jar with all your wishes and thoughts.

All of them are positive and affirming of how you are living your life in love and joy.

Place the jar in a place where you can constantly see it.

If you need reminders on some days, just open and peruse.
And with each note you read, know that you did this.
You spoke up and shared your own light. Pretty amazing!

Do send me pictures of your Jar of Plenty..we could start a whole new movement here!

getting the inside right


1. Be in the moment, when we are in the moment we are giving the gift of being fully present and responsive. It makes us feel lighter, more loving,respectful and compassionate.
2. No drama, when we let go of drama we are no longer pulled into someone else’s circus.We are free from participating in that which no longer serves our highest interest and we live in inner peace.

3. No holding on to yesterday’s stories, sometimes we have held on to a story of yesterday because it is familiar or seemed to define us. In reality that story no longer exists, because we only have this moment. So why define us by something that no longer is part of our today?Just let it go.
4. Do something each day that brings you joy, each new day brings us the opportunity to find joy. Whether it be a new discovery on a walk or an inner strength coming forward. The concept of joy is simple and life affirming. And contagious to not only us, but those around us.
5. Be of service, have you ever noticed how different we feel when we get to connect with someone else in an unexpected way of giving? Our bodies feel lighter, more joyful, we feel compassion and love. It makes us aware of how we are so connected to each other.
6. Live your heart, when we have climbed into our own inner truth and heart, everthing just flows. We live our heart in gratitude and simple joy.
7. Feed your soul ,figure out what feeds and lifts your being. And just keep giving it more and more love. That is the perfect recipe for loving your life.Live in awe and gratitude.

8. Smile easily and often and laugh more, have you noticed that when you smile, you feel younger, lighter and easier? So take out that smile, it is so contagious. You will be amazed at how your world will really glow love.

Falling in love with our lives, is an inside job. We have that capacity to be in a constant state of love. That does not mean living blissed out, 9although not a bad idea.grin.) But really, just simple love. Appreciating and living in gratitude and joy. No attachments, drama or holding on to stories. Living a life of loving is our chance to show our hearts, and write our own legacy.

A legacy that does not come from the small self but rather the heart-centric flowing love of our own glowing light.

rumi its your light

We have all heard that saying, life is not a dress rehearsal. So let’s get our inner truth on. And surf it through each day. One loving moment leading to another. We don’t need any costumes, we have our own hearts to shine!

Our being, is not the external societal sense of what “they” think. It is that inside knowing that all we are is shining through because we count , we care and we are making sure we are loving ourselves as a reflection of the Universe.

Love yourself, love others, find your joy, and smile until your cheeks feel frozen. Your inner light is so beautiful. Share it today!

I so look forward to hearing how you are loving your life. Join me in the conversation!

In peace and gratitude,

Founder,, One heart-centric moment at a time!




  1. Ariel you have outlined some wonderful life advice in this post. “Have you ever found yourself just all of a sudden realizing that there is no weight on your shoulders?”-This happened to me one sunny Sunday morning this past September. What is really bad is in the one who put all that weight up there to begin with. Thank you for the article and I will definitely be back.

    1. Hello Joseph, Lovely to meet you. And thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. You are so right, when we realize who and what we do not need in our lives, we find our freedom and our joy. I look forward to chatting with you again soon. In peace and gratitude, ariel

  2. I honestly think everyone should implement all these hacks into their life right now. The world is such a negative place, it’s almost like we’re battling life on our own. These hacks can help so much people in so many ways.

    I’ll be starting the Jar of Plenty asap. I’m going to write some things down as soon as I finish typing 😀

    Thanks a lot.

    1. Hello Brandon, so many thanks for stopping by! I am so grateful for your kind and encouraging words. And you are so right. It is up to us to change our world one heart at a time. I really want to hear how that jar of plenty works for you. I wish you great success and joy. Hope you come back again soon. In peace and gratitude, ariel

    1. Hello Manny, so many thanks for dropping by. I am so happy to meet you. Exactly, caring and compassion are the basis for a lovely life. And we all have that choice. Hope your world is filled with joy. In peace and gratitude, ariel

  3. Funny you should mention this, dear Ariel… I have been feeling EXACTLY this way this morning!! A song I remember from my child came on the radio: “Love is in the Air” by John Paul Young and I turned it up and just felt swept away by the words the tune and the joyfulness of the moment. I felt this outpouring of gratitude at how wonderful life is – guess it’s the perfect time to start writing my notes and filling my jar of plenty. What a fabulous idea! Ariel, you Rock! Are you singing with me right now… Love is in the Air… every sight and every sound… ” This song was made for you, dear Ariel and all those practicing conscious living.

    1. I am indeed singing it with you dearest Lauren! And grooving to the music of life! I am so happy that your world reflects the heart of you. May you bathe in all these wonderful blessings. Thank you for being here. In peace and gratitude,ariel

  4. Hello, Aerial. Thank you for this wonderful article. There are moments in life when everything is not going as expected and we experience a lack of motivation for daily life. I have been through it before. I began a practice of visualizing how my life would look like minus the challenges and that gave me a resolve to keep going. I will start my jar of plenty and send you a pic 🙂 I hope this post reaches many more people out there.

    1. Hello Ami! I am so happy you stopped by. You are so right about life not always going as expected.And I often wonder if it is the Universe asking us to stop and take a moment. How wonderful that you are visualizing. Isn’t it amazing that we have that capacity to do that for ourselves? I am looking forward to seeing your jar of plenty. Thank you for such encouraging words. I wish you easy flow and joy. In peace and gratitude, ariel

  5. Love love love the jar of plenty idea! I am gonna make myself one as my holiday gift to myself. we sometimes need these tangible reminders of all the good things in our lives, to help us when things are not so good. thanks for the excellent suggestion.

    1. Hello Penelope! So happy to chat with you. I hope you include a picture of your jar of plenty. I really want to see it and hear how the experience went for you. You are so right about reminders. And it make us live in a very sweet place of gratitude, doesn’t it? Wishing you great joy and smiles. So many thanks for being here. In peace and gratitude, ariel

  6. Thanks for a lovely and inspiring post, Ariel. I would wish everyone could live by your 8 hacks! What a better place the world would be!
    But we each have the power to look within ourselves for the joy and peace–and that will be a start on making the world a better place, and a huge start on personal happiness and serenity. Thanks again, Ariel. Jane

    1. Hello Jane, I think you said it so well. We do have the power within to change. It is just the choice to do it, yes? I really look forward to hearing how your own personal peace revolution is going. Thank you so much for being here and your very encouraging and kind words. I wish you peace, joy and loads of hugs. ariel

    1. Hello Melani, so many thanks for stopping by! Do let me know how the jar works for you. It is such a lovely idea, I agree. In peace and gratitude, ariel

  7. Beautiful article, Ariel with some great advice! Being happy is definitely an inside job. I love the quote by Bashar, “Circumstances don’t matter. State of being matters.”

    I want to start a Jar of Plenty!

    Thanks for the insights and inspiration.


    1. Hello Christina!Thank you so much for stopping by. Isn’t that so true, the state of matter is all that does indeed matter. If we are in a state of joy, we certainly do interact as such, yes? I am so happy you want to start a jar of plenty. Do let me know how much fun you have doing it..and send a picture. I hope your jar of plenty overflows! In peace and joy, ariel

  8. Ariel, what an absolutely beautiful article! The whole world would be so much better if everyone created their own Jar of Plenty! For the first time, our family has done something very similar to that idea and created a “blessing” jar. Throughout the year, we wrote down and deposited our blessings in the jar and will take them out and read them on New Year’s Eve. I look forward to opening our jar this year.

    I think we get so caught up in the day-to-day moments that we forget to be thankful for what we already have. I think the Jar of Plenty is an excellent way to concentrate on the goodness and not the negativity going on around us. In order to stay positive, we much have those beautiful moments to concentrate on.

    Thank you so much for always sharing your inner beauty. You are such an inspiration to the world around you.

    I look forward to reading more and more of your inspirational writing. What topics will you discuss next? I can’t wait to find out.

    Have an awesome day!

    1. Hello Yvette, As always it is so wonderful to have you stopping by. I love the idea that did a blessings jar. I hope you will share with us what shows itself in your jar this year! I so agree. figuring out how to make each moment a place of love and awareness of the positive completely changes our world. I cannot thank you enough for your kind words and encouraging heart. Is there a topic you might suggest or be interested in? I hope your day is filled to the brim and overflowing in blessings. In peace and gratitude, ariel
