December 28 – Achieve
What’s the thing you most want to achieve next year? How do you imagine you’ll feel when you get it? Free? Happy? Complete? Blissful? Write that feeling down. Then, brainstorm 10 things you can do, or 10 new thoughts you can think, in order to experience that feeling today. (Author: Tara Sophia Mohr) [The #reverb10 project.]
I can only prepare a spark for Time future.
But, I can choose to ignite Time present.
I want true contentment with what I have and where I am. I do not want to confuse contentment with resignation or apathy. I want to continue to burn for more.
How will I feel should I achieve such contentment? Sizzling! On fire for the here and now.
I have experienced moments of pure contentedness but they are rare. Elusive. Keeping that fire continuously burning is a constant struggle. There are sparks I can light… today… tomorrow… daily. Lack of diligence is my perpetual downfall.
Behests ‘o Beth
Meditate thy mind.
Own thy attitude.
Move thy body.
Do thy deeds.
Journal thy feelings.
Show thy smile.
Mind thy money.
Ignore thy excuses.
Love thy world… and all in it.
Every fire must be stoked.
