Words to Live By

Words to Live By

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?
