[Last day to enter my REB Brand Clothing giveaway!]
One of the things I love about Twitter is that it connects me with tons of inspirational, influential people that I otherwise wouldn’t have ‘met’ or had the chance to interact with. Tony Posnanski (otherwise known as the Anti-Jared) is a really cool blogger who I followed for a few years now. Aside from writing some really cool articles that take a new spin on the world of health and fitness on his blog, he also is a pretty fun tweeter! He’s always coming up with the best hashtags and often they start trending around the country. Silly things like #RuinARomanticMomentIn4Words or #AwkwardGreetingsIn5Words! I always can look to his tweets for a laugh and a smile.
But every now and then, he comes up with one that really gets people thinking. Whether he meant them to be serious or not, hashtags like #MyGreatestFearIn5Words or more recently #DescribeHeavenIn5Words, really get people thinking and opening up.
#DescribeHeavenIn5Words really hit me in a big way. I’ve shared on here before that I am not religious…but that doesn’t mean I don’t have beliefs. I believe in the Universe. I think there is some magic and mysticism to it that just can’t be explained. I believe that human connection and the human mind have more power than we know. I also believe that a perfect world doesn’t exist…but if it did, wouldn’t that be heaven? To me it would. So I decided to jot down a few of my own thoughts about what heaven (an ideal world) would mean to me. It’s sort of random and doesn’t have much meaning in reality, but it was an interesting exercise to think about what’s truly important to me and what I consider to be the makings of a good life.
Some are light hearted…others are more deep and complex. But I think ‘heaven’ would have room for it all.
Mental illness no longer exists.
Surrounded by family and friends.
Writing and sharing my thoughts.
Endless running with no fatigue.
No more pain and suffering.
No number counting or measuring.
To see my grandpa again.
Loving myself inside and out.
Never too cold or hot.
People see you for you.
The sun always shines down.
Favorite smells are always abundant.
No day ends without hugs.
My sister is my best friend.
Every day brings joyful memories.
Sleep is deep and rejuvenating.
Worries dispense with the wind.
Endless kabocha eating without stomachaches.
No one ever gets older.
My parents go after me.
People are kind and empathetic.
I also challenged all of you to come up with your own 5 word description of heaven. Some of you described heaven in the moment, and others went the more metaphysical route. Either way, all of your responses brought a smile to my face. Here’s what you shared….
Where love has no end.
Sunshine on my skin today.
There is nothing like home.
No worries, only complete euphoria.
Traveling afar with loved ones.
Do what you love always.
God, love, family, friends, happiness.
Where I am freely me.
Vibrant, peaceful, joyous, love, indescribable.

Lots of donuts and coffee.

Everyone’s is unique and everyone’s brings a different kind of personal bliss.
