"Life is funny, I’m finally getting the jokes and learning to laugh out-loud." Ray Basile
Life is a four letter word.
Life is what I'm living right now.
Life, worth everything I put into it.
Life is what I wake up for.
Life, one change at a time.
Life, catch up if I start moving too fast for you.
Life, I want more of that.
Life don't fail me now.
Today a friend who works as a life coach lead me in a fun exercise she
uses to get a glimpse into a persons belief system. It's a spontaneous
way of drawing out how we view life.
The exercise was simple, she wrote down a word on a piece of paper and asked me to complete eight sentances with that word at the start. I had no clue what the word was going to be. She told me to say whatever came to mind, off the top of my head and she would write down my answers. She passed the paper to me, I turned it over and it read;
I blurted out eight sentences that began with the word life, not giving them too much thought. I found the experience to be exhilarating. No one sentence was right or wrong but all of them were truly revealing. They were all a unique reflection of my world view.
I had not planned to try and define life, at least not today. I was actually preoccupied making other plans when life took me by surprise. I was interrupted by the idea of life as it came clearly into view. I had no intention of slowing the pace of my day to find life starring back at me, in my own terms. Eight spontaneous sentences, pulled out of one word. For me, that's life.
I encourage everyone to experience life in a brand new way. Start now.
