Fourteen weeks ago I proclaimed my desire to “move from living my life as a problem to be solved to living my life as a mystery that unfolds.” I needed a daily practice to help me stay the course and allow the mystery to engage all my senses. I chose blogging and asked you to hold me accountable for sustaining that practice throughout the Lenten/Easter season.
Week 1: Unfolding Now
Let go of over thinking and doubt. Make a commitment. Go public with it. Get your friends involved and check in often.
Week 2: Unscrambling the Sacred
Scared and sacred are present in the same moment; just change perspective, unscramble your emotions and lead with the sacred.
Week 3: Meeting My Elder Within
Optimize your inner child’s joy; your inner adult’s hope; and your inner elder’s wisdom and compassion – for yourself and others.
Week 4: The Embrace Factor
Mindfulness grounds the mystery as it unfolds. Root yourself in its Presence and it will help you “see” your connectedness with the world.
Week 5: Take Time to Celebrate
In gratitude blessings and grace are one. Celebrate everything!
Week 6: Let Someone Inspire You
Everyone wants to be seen, be heard, be vital. Liberate another’s dignity, set their bling free and watch them inspire you.
Week 7: Don’t Forget to be Awesome
You are awesome. Your mystery is awesome. No need to earn it. Just let it be and watch it create awesome all around you!
Week 8: Honor Your Faith
Awareness without change is just awareness. Change ushers in mystery; with or without permission. Faith anchors belief; remains stalwart in the face of doubt and discouragement. Remember your commitment to yourself and your God: be patient, persevere.
Week 9: Just a Thought to Consider
Our lives unfold one moment at a time. Those moments can be absurd, funny, serious, playful, sometimes even solemn. Take time to reflect and enjoy where they take you.
Week 10: Be Safe
Aspiring to wholeness requires that you ensure you are physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually safe wherever you unfold. Moments are precious, be safe in them.
Week 11: A Prayer Pause
When you cannot pace yourself; ask God to do it for you.
Week 12: Break and vacate!
Ah yes. Take that break …do that thing you have been wanting to do …NOW.
Week 13: Back From My Stone Carving Break;
Capture your unfolding, record it and share your revitalization experience!
Week 14: Thank You!
This is for you – all my readers — it’s a never-ending thank you …for listening, for keeping me accountable and for being with me on this leg of my unfolding. You are the best!
