I have that quote posted on the bulletin board above my desk. It reminds me that my life is made of actions. Whatever I believe, whatever philosophies I embrace or dreams I refuse to let go of, it is the things I do every day, big and little, that matter.
So, with that in mind, I made a to-do list for July (and beyond) that is all about making sure that if I watch what I do to see what I really believe, I won’t be disappointed.
- Write bravely – naked, alive, funny, vibrant, honest, lapel-grabbing, to the edges and out into the margins – every day.
- Finish my novel revisions.
- Cross something off the life list.
- In my personal life, open myself up, be vulnerable, accessible, clumsy, honest, present. Embrace the messy. Love fearlessly.
- Play hard; sleep well.
Okay, your turn. If at the end of July you wanted your actions to reflect what you believe, what would you be sure to do?
