To-stop list

(Come alive)

I will grow in my ability to:

  • stop letting worries prevent me from acting towards my values.
  • stop wishing for a world easier than this one.
  • stop retreating into the sick role when I am scared or tired.
  • stop believing it’s all about me.

This piece is my response to the sixth prompt of the Trust30 Challenge:

Life wastes itself while we are preparing to live. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you had one week left to live, would you still be doing what you’re doing now? In what areas of your life are you preparing to live? Take them off your To Do list and add them to a To Stop list. Resolve to only do what makes you come alive.

Bonus: How can your goals improve the present and not keep you in a perpetual “always something better” spiral?
