Do You Love This Life?

Updated: Oct 13, 2020

Love this Life…

is about celebrating the moment and that we’re not guaranteed or owed another day and how cool it is that what we hide can actually be the fuel towards our glory and that it’s not so bad being proven wrong

Love this Life…

is about welcoming the blind turn and the possibility that there’s no such thing as coincidence and that empathy is incredibly sexy and that it’s never too late to pick up a guitar or a paintbrush or to make an amend or to make a new friend

Love this Life…

could be about rekindling a past flame or igniting a new one or shapeshifting from a dreamer into a doer or savouring the  caress of a love long gone

Love this Life…

means whatever it is you want it to mean because

Love this Life…

is a celebration of you and your path

Love this Life…

‘cuz it could go at any second

you rock.

“Love this Life Manifesto”

Lyrics & Music By David Culiner

David's manifesto is as powerful today as it was the first day I read it. He's a good friend, musician, industry creative and global lifestyle brand. 

The “Manifesto” was a song David originally wrote to himself, composed of lyrics of complete surrender. What came next was unexpected. He found that letting go and sharing the song, actually prompted others to share their story. Like all great songs, the Manifesto serves as a support and a catalyst in the spirit of freeing people from their fears and struggles, and as a tool to celebrate resilience.  

I believe everyone should have a personal Manifesto.

What is a Manifesto? 

A manifesto is a statement of ideals and intentions for your life.

Love this life is an example but there are many others. The Declaration of Independence is a manifesto. So is Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream Speech.”

"A manifesto functions as both a statement of principles and a bold, sometimes rebellious, call to action. By causing people to evaluate the gap between those principles and their current reality, the manifesto challenges assumptions, fosters commitment, and provokes change.”

Because of their power to incite change, manifestos are often embraced by creative and political types, but you don’t have to be a writer, artist, or revolutionary to draw up your own personal manifesto.

Write Your Manifesto.

Write down your goals and your visions of your ideal life in the present tense and be as specific as possible.

Where do you live, who do you live with, what do you do for fun, who are you surrounded by, how much money did you make, how do you make money, how do you give back to the world, what are you wearing, ......

Make it so freaking awesome that you can’t read it without weeping and whaling and you need to put it down to compose yourself every few sentences.

Read it to yourself before you go to bed and when you wake up every single solitary day.

Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve. ~Napoleon Hill

Now Live It.

A personal manifesto is a declaration of your core values. It’s like a mission statement and owner’s manual for your life, so don’t let it sit in a drawer or a file you never open on your computer.

Hang it over your workspace, put it on the fridge, make it your desktop background, or print it on a laminated card you keep in your wallet: the idea is to read your manifesto regularly to reaffirm those values and remind you of your goals.

Keep in mind that your priorities and goals will change over time. Like the U.S. Constitution, your manifesto is a living document.

Let it grow along with you as you go forth to follow your dreams! Love this Life.
