To thrive, I need to feel fit. I need to feel connected to kindred spirits. I need to be close to my family. I need to enjoy my marriage. I need to create. And, most of all, I need to be close to my Creator.
This year, I want to move to the next level in all of those areas. For many of my needs, there is no objective measure . They are subjective... subject to my interpretation.
I have the freedom to choose. I am going to start simple. I hope to dig deeper and work harder as we go along... but, for now... for today... this is it.
For the month of January 2010 I commit to:
- MOVE five days a week.
- Sit with God five days a week.
- Pay attention to five things a day that make me smile... that I am grateful for... write 'em down... SEEK those things, if necessary!
- Read the rest of How We Choose to be Happy
- Keep this Mission: THRIVE working for one more month
- Keep my intention focused on thriving
I'll be reporting back on how this goes.
This is my first attempt at a McLinky List. Amanda, you will just love the fact that I am having to use the html version. =)
This list will stay open until January 15, 2010. Please feel free to join at any time. I will be doing the Mission: THRIVE the last Thursday of every month. Twelve times we can check in and see how each of us are doing on our missions to THRIVE.
I am excited to see a progress of souls seeking to make it to the next level. Some of you may already be thriving... Some may be just trying to climb out of the pit... For all of us, there is a next level... Join us this year... Let's make it better than it has been.
