At a book club meeting, we were discussing themes from our most recent read, The Alchemist. One of the chat topics was “falling down 7 times, and getting up 8 times”. We pondered, individually, if we have been doing this in our life to date – what it has given us and what it has taken away.
I received amazing individual emails after the evening meeting with group reaching back with more sharing of their personal reflections.
I love how differently people approach ‘living life’ fully. Here’s a collection of the thoughts heard:
Giving things a shot
Trying things on
Putting yourself out there
Reaching for your dreams
Finishing an experience with no regrets
Embracing life’s process
Showing up when nothing seems to be in your tank, is strength
Saying no to perfection.
Chose any one approach from the list above. Chose a couple. Add some of your own.
Any way you chose, take it on fully.
Nothing to lose, lots to gain.
And heck – we’re doing this once, let’s do it our way!
