I am trying to keep this going! Life just keeps getting in the way ;)

"Your genuine action will explain itself, and will explain your other genuine actions. Your conformity explains nothing. The force of character is cumulative. – Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance

If ‘the voyage of the best ship is a zigzag line of a hundred tacks,’ then it is more genuine to be present today than to recount yesterdays. How would you describe today using only one sentence? Tell today’s sentence to one other person. Repeat each day.

Today's Sentence:

Today was a pounding, persistent headache, that did not ruin the experience.

Come Alive by Jonathan Mead

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?

(Author: Jonathan Mead)"

If I had one week left, this is not how I would be living. I would be enjoying myself. I would be dancing, whenever I felt like. I would be with my family, my son would be with me I would only do things that I wanted to and not worry about the pressures from others. In theory it would be wonderful to do only what makes me come alive. If I could dance and teach people to dance for the rest of my life I would. but to actually live off of that is almost impossible any more. I do however like design and arts, I hope to go into this field and do something I enjoy while also making enough to support my family. I do hope to one day coach or work with under privileged kids in dance. Until then I think I just need to make more time to move the furniture aside and boogie in the living room! :)

Awww Aimée I know exactly what you mean, I teach dance but could never make a living off it but it is my dream. Well technically to run a Dance, Craft and Drama camp for under privileged kids would be my dream. Great job using the prompts :) x
