What feeds your soul?
Yeah, for me! Last week I kicked off “10 daily “energizing” habits and I for one did it! Well I did the first one, which was the plan, after all. I was a bit lazy on the weekend as I did some writing in advance, sort of. In reality I wrote every day as I was working on a new piece or editing one for the next day so it seems that is the nature of this beast. All is good and I am feeling pretty good about my start.
How did you do? Yeah, for you, too! You can send me a note and let me know, I am very interested in your successes as well as potential stumbles. I know myself, if there was no commitment, i.e. to my readers, whoever you are, I probably would have let other things I previously deemed more important, take precedent.
Here we are at week 2 and it was quite the decision what to add next. There were so many to choose from. Actually I am lying, I am really working hard at creating a list of “energizing” habits, that won’t be the “flossing the teeth” kind. I have some sorted but there is room for more so please, give us a hand and tell me yours. That being said, something that always has fed me is reading!
I love reading, yet often I will put it to the bottom of the list and not quite get around to it. I enjoy more than one style of book.I vary between sappy romances (not as much these days), the slightly deeper one offs – often first books from authors and the great stuff that feeds my soul and spirit. There are many of this kind of book on my shelf so I would like to get back to “The Purpose Driven Life”. I started it some months ago when I wanted information on purpose but only got to page 25, not even to the end of chapter 4! (It was even in the bathroom! Actually that may be why I stopped mid chapter.) The author Rick Warren suggests reading one chapter a day with something to ponder and a question at the end of each chapter. There are 40 chapters so this is a great book to start as it will last 37 days or more than 5 weeks! If I like the book I will recommend it on my resource page. If not I will trade it off to something else as long as it continues to “energize” me.
I truly applaud you along your journey with habits that give you energy. If you are stumbling along, gracefully strolling or skipping down the road while adding some amazing habits to your life, please send me a note of encouragement or let me encourage you. We can do this together, I know we can!
