Have you sfizioed lately?
Sfizio is an Italian word with Greek origins that invites us to follow a whim.
Maybe it’s time to try something new, out-of-character, illogical, and adventurous.
You’ll find it to be surprisingly energizing.
Go somewhere you’ve never been, paint colorful graffiti on your wall, read a racy book, have lunch at a different restaurant, go alone to a movie you want to see even if no one else wants to (you can indulge in all the popcorn you want!), listen to a new genre of music, eat all four of those delectable fresh peaches at once, take a weekend road trip without your GPS, talk with a tree, anonymously leave cookies on your neighbor’s doorstep…
It’s surprising how many times a fleeting thought runs through our mind inviting us to do something “silly” or “different” but we ignore it because it’s “not what I do”, or “what will people think?”
Pardon me for asking – but who is living your life?
If a fun idea arises unannounced, something you didn’t conjure up in your own thinking, could it be intuition giving you a nudge?
It is a breath of fresh air? A push to un-stick yourself from a stagnant life? An opportunity to connect with some one, some thing, a new concept, that will bring the answers you have been seeking?
Following a whim hits your life re-fresh button.
How will you sfizio?

The story of a community based on deep respect, for the earth, for nature, and for each other, gives me hope in these times of corruption, chaos and extreme unrest… more reviews
