I am not a list person…. I try to be, but I am not successful. I have too many places I might put them, purse, wallet, zippered pockets, jacket pockets, pant pockets, I can’t keep track of them… Sometimes I just leave them on the counter before I go out the door but because I have written them down I remember the items more readily….there’s a case for making them anyway… I do think they are helpful….I love reading lists, they are a quick and easy way to get the information..
Here is a list of what matters to me.
1 Health is most important…under this heading comes food, clean air, clean water, and playful physical activity.
2 Having a creative outlet. Creativity is a co-mingling of the right and left brain hemisphere. The use of our imaginations.
3 Relationships, one sure way to “Know Thyself” this includes belonging to a family/community/group etc.
4 Having enough money for a comfortable living. This includes sharing and helping those that are in need.
5 Taking responsibility for our bodies and our lives.. this is empowering ..and health making.
6 Honest representations of who we are… this is courageous. Finding and using our voice.
7 Aspiring to evolve to a higher consciousness…Accessing our higher mind .
8 Having meaningful rituals in our lives that mark our rights of passage.
9 Experiencing our sexuality.
10 Loving ourselves and doing unto others and we would have done unto us.
There’s more but i’ll stop there.
