Where are you on the continuum from surviving to thriving?
I’m taking a look at the conditions for thriving over the next 6 weeks – a short video each week to start moving towards thriving.
Taking it gently, without judgement and most importantly, because it’s never the slog that will get us there, it’s the joy, enjoying the walk, let’s see where we get to…
Week one – What is life for and in what manner would you like to live it?
Then a week each on John Ruskin’s three things considered necessary to be happy in our life’s work
Week two – you must be fit for it
Week three – you must not do too much of it
Week four – you must have a sense of success in it.
“Not a not a doubtful sense, such as needs some testimony of others for its confirmation, but a sure sense, or rather knowledge, that so much work has been done well, and fruitfully done, whatever the world may say or think about it.”
Week five – the qualities you particularly bring and can give life to
Week six – find and establish your own everyday practices that will build the conditions in which you thrive into your life
Could you do with a gentle move towards thriving?
I’d love to have you join me
I’ve been working with a group for over a year in this way to make significant shifts through simply bringing our attention consistently to the things we’d like to change. It’s a gentle, kind way of bringing about change. No push, struggle, determination or hard work has been required.
Acceptance, without the tense energy of resistance or shame, of where you’re starting, with at least a sense of wanting to move somewhere and then the consistent attention to it.
Here we go, Week One
