What does it mean to live a BIG life? What constitutes a small life?
The answer is entirely up to you…and the way you choose to think about it.
You don’t need to take lavish vacations, spend time in Vegas or pal around with international celebrities to enjoy a big life. You need only go within and get curious:
How could I be enjoying my life more right now?
What activities bring me pleasure and satisfaction?
Who do I love being around?
What sparks joy in my heart?
What do I love to learn about?
What do I love to share with others?
What makes me feel alive?
As the leaves shift from summer greens to the hues of autumn here in Virginia, it serves as a gentle reminder of the passing of time. As I embrace this season of my life, I recall a famous quote from American poet Mary Oliver:
“What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
Am I content to live a small, limited life? What’s tugging at my heart right now? How is my soul calling me to deeper service?
As our communities, countries and indeed the world grapples with unprecedented change in every sector, am I content to sit in the safety of my home? Is that my plan for my one wild and precious life? Is it Love’s plan for me?
By getting quiet and asking questions like those above a vision has surfaced. And I’m choosing to live a bigger life than I’m used to.
Scary? Yes. Exhilarating? Absolutely!
Do you choose to live a bigger life? What could that mean for you today?
Time to start asking questions…and listen for the answers Love provides.
