Day 138: May 18
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration
Celebrating creativity with words became more enjoyable, appreciative and engaging with the new super Scrabble game I surprised Mom with on Mother’s Day. Since then, using the game to engage has invited a number of opportunities.
Leaving the board on a table that is enroute to the kitchen, we each add to the game throughout the day and becomes a quick way to note her function, attitude and outlook for the day. In spilling a number of tiles on the kitchen table, they became sentences that led to designs that opened up conversations and uplifted the dialogue.
Mom has become a bit of a designer too, learning the patterns of the labyrinth, she asks of their purpose and why they are significant. It’s easier sometime and often more fun and engaging on her part to follow the path for the message.
Finding simple methods for interaction and engagement, we’ve made a number of designs and messages with our new Scrabyrinth. For Scrabble fans, the added note of fun is that if you start on the bottom, you’ll come out on top and there are 211 points here!
On this 138th day…
Celebrate your words and observe how they fit into your walking design for more appreciation and realization today.
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.
