What are the words with which you would like to describe yourself? What are the qualities of character that you want to be remembered for after a conversation with a friend, after a job interview, after time spent with a loved one, or after a lifetime? What is it that you most want to express?
These questions were recently given to me and when I considered them I saw that I could use these words as guides for my choices in any of my activities through the day. And in holding them as intentions for all my interactions with others I create connections with people and feel soul satisfying.
Here’s some words that come to my mind: vibrant, flowing, easeful, appreciative, wholehearted, attentive, inspiring, caring, generous, patient, kind, compassionate, playful, thoughtful, joyful, happy, loving – I think you can get the picture.
What if you dedicated this month of October to living and playing with the words you choose for your life guides?
