“We never touch people so lightly that we do not leave a trace.” Peggy Tabor Millin
Sharing and listening, no matter WHERE you happen to be.
“How old you are is inversely proportional to your spontaneity quotient.” Veronique Vienne
This misguided woman thinks she can stave off a bear attack by looking threatening. Aren’t we glad when the silly among us make us laugh? Keep those friends close and encourage the laughter. It makes a day one to remember.
Having interests is what makes us fun to ourselves and others. Are your interests stale and in need of a “refresh”? Looking at the world with fresh eyes can certainly be fun. When asked if we would like to do something new, the answer just might be “yes”…and who knows what will happen next.
Explore your own locale as though you are a guest from far away. Bike, fish, ride horses, picnic, take a cooking class or take in a lecture or performance. Make that phone call that you’ve been wanting to make. At the end of the day, chronicle what made that day special. It’s up to us.
Think back to when you were a child and move forward in time to when you were fully educated. What skills did you have that you could rely on and relished the experience of using? Are you using those skills today? They are your individual strengths and are not to be wasted. In fact, if skills are not used, they can fade from lack of care. Use your skills to be a stand-out!
The wonder of the world is yours to find and enjoy. Take a new route, go somewhere foreign to you, look around at what nature or people have done. Isn’t it fun to lay your eyes on a beautiful display in a shop, a well-behaved animal parading along, a child with a French hair-cut and perfect blue eyes? These are daily visual gifts for us to enjoy. Best to stop in our tracks and take the time necessary to enjoy what was given to us.
Make a decision to get outside and be among the community.There you will discover neighbors and life happening. So many faces, so many expressions and tidbits of conversation are swirling for us to capture and be a part of. If we add our own personality to the mix, who knows what serendipity might occur. One thing for sure, moving about and getting involved can brighten a day…and create a memory.
