I usually start with my morning pages (750 words), move on to my devotion reading plans at You Version, and then proceed to the writing prompts of Project 137. By this time it is usually time to return upstairs and prepare for the day.
This morning was typical is all those ways until....I read one of Patti Digh's prompts:
- What does it mean to be "fully live"?
- How long have I simply "existed" - going through the motions of the daily routines without really engaging in life?
- Have I lived such a dormant lifestyle that revival to a "fully alive" is state possible --- I would settle for once a day, but is it really possible to achieve that status six times in a 24-hour period?
- How can I begin to add "fully alive" activities to my day and/or change my attitude towards the mundane activities so that I fully engage in the moment?
I have not had time to answer any of these questions yet - but I plan to spend some serious time contemplating each one. In the mean time, I would be curious to hear your thoughts on this subject.
