PROMISES TO MYSELF • December 11, 2009 • Promise #5 • FUN PREVAILS. • I promise to allow fun to permeate the day. • “mary anne, you can have fun AND make significant contributions to the world.” • Looking into the day this might mean – “insert fun ______(here).” setting up my festival booth in a cold barn turns into a festivity, do things with friends, get the MUSIC on, dance through ordinary activities.
Reflections on Promise #4. Absent hurry, many aspects of a fully occupied day become an invitation for unexpected joy, gift and pleasure. • It’s easier to see when I’m not moving at warp speed. • Engaged observation is the gift of the even pace.
