This post is part of #Trust30 is an “online initiative and 30-day writing challenge that encourages you to look within and trust yourself”. Sinking my teeth into the present, creating direction for tomorrows and making a bullseye of my destination. Join the journey.
Prompt #2 by Liz Danico:
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.
I listened to the laughter of my daughters and really saw them – plump cheeks, bright eyes, beaming smiles, babies; I played and I dreamed in the moments in between.
This comes a day late but the sentence is accurate. I read the prompt and was really stirred. To sum up an entire day, a full 1440 minutes of breahting, in one sentence. Yesterday, today and every day – oh my. It’s to really reflect and highlight what’s most important in each day. It really makes you realize which moments matter enough to repeat – in action, in memory, in spirit.
