What will you do with your one wild and precious life?
I was reminded of this question over the Christmas break. It’s been swirling around in my head ever since. Sometimes it’s quiet, sometimes it’s loud.
When I watch or read some of the devastating and unbelievable events happening across the globe it shouts loud – “Pete, get on with it. What are you waiting for you numpty!” (an internal dialogue term of endearment 😊).
When I’ve created – by design or default – the space and capacity to be present it whispers “Pete, this IS your one wild and precious life right now. Saviour it, you numpty!”
As you navigate the inevitable twists and turns of your one wild and precious life how often can you notice – by design or default – what it’s whispering to you?
What, in fact, will you do with this one wild and precious moment?
Will you dare to live this one wild and precious moment?
A few moments linked consecutively might indeed make progress towards a wild and precious life.
Question of the week
What’s your relationship with your thoughts?
How often would you unwittingly believe every word that comes from inside your head? Yes, sometimes it can be helpful. But on other occasions it can really send us into a spin.
Even if this has caused you to repeat the question maybe it means that you’re not only your thoughts and you can have a relationship with them in the first place?
Maybe you’re more than just your thoughts. Maybe our thoughts are there to sometimes guide and sometimes to be thanked but ignored?
How are you ‘in relationship’ to your thoughts?
Quote of the week:
"I’d rather go thirsty than drink from the cup of mediocrity"
A blessing and a curse for sure! How will you know what’s better than just settling for whatever shows up?
Do you have agency to stretch and reach for a little more?
