Day 142: May 22
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration
In the heart and art of celebration, a friend is just that. Today is the birthday of Laura, she is a joyous soul who’s creativity is inspired by service. She brings her human presence fully alive to the Midwestern Ministry she provides as a Pastor of a small church in Iowa.
She is also a Master Trainer of Laughter like myself and together we have offered 10 annual conferences on the joy of living through laughter, playfulness and creativity. It is when we joined forces that the real fun began and I had opportunity to know this inspired individual even better.
Fond of labyrinths, this one is designed and dedicated to her outrageous spirit. In her church, they laugh in the pews to recall their joyful spirit and whether she is in Ministerial robes of providing an amusing way to explain her sermon, a pink boa is not far away.
So with a capital L for Loving, Living and Laughing out loud, it sits in the center for Laura who demonstrates to her parishioners, community, family and friends that it is ok to live out loud and beyond the box of conditioning. Happy Birthday Laura!
On this 142nd day…
Celebrate how you step out of the box and why you appreciate it.
May’s Focus: Celebration
Life is a celebration to explore in the next 31 days. With the idea of walking the labyrinth and its tri-focus on releasing, receiving and reflecting, let’s shift the perspective to one that walks in with appreciation, finds the honest realization from each day and walks out in celebration. Observe what 31 days of this focus might reflect and how it elevates our life condition.
Four focus points to expand your celebration of this month’s experience:
- Share your ideas, in your personal experiences, how you share the labyrinth with others, art, design or method of construction or in other ways that it may be utilized. Let others know about this daily experience and opportunity by sharing it. Find us on this blog and on the Labyrinth Societies Facebook page
- Join our Mid Month Dialogues on May 15th at 2pm CST for a lively look at what you have created and will create in the idea of celebration. This month’s theme was a direct result of our last month’s Mid Month Dialogue!
- Participate in the daily opportunity of this educational focus of your personal journey, how you lead, teach or share with others, and what you create for contribution or purpose with this theme.
- Remember that our theme is about finding our greater capacities, abilities and true realities in being honest with our potential. We focus on what we can do as it is inherently more useful and productive.
