Starting – any movement – releases energy

Today, I had a rather large and daunting to-do list. It was so large, that it felt overwhelming.

So, I decided to start the first item on the list – to take the first step towards its’ completion.

That first step immediately released energy, direction and passion for the task at hand. It also gave me focus to be completely present and in the moment.

It stuck with me all day today, and I’m proud of what I accomplished.

It’s amazing what taking the first, small step towards a larger goal can do. I liken it to the call to a quest.

Starting is the key to any call and any quest!

And, chaos reigned, and it was good

I’m sitting in the family cottage – 9:30 pm on a Sunday night.  My dad, sister and brother and their families have come up for a visit.  As I write this, I’m surrounded by the sounds of the kids playing a wild, crazy and loud game of Monopoly.  The two dogs are moving around the cottage, and a storm is raging outside.

One could easily perceive this as an enormous distraction from the very serious task of writing about life, hope and abundance.  And, as you’ve no doubt guessed, it is actually all of those things – it is joy, it is life and it is perfect.

Another example of the wonder of children being crazy, being wild and being alive.  Nothing more to say …
