Day 96: April 6
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement
While April Fool’s Day was five days ago, Chicago has weather tricks to keep us fooled all year long. It is the land of wait five minutes…. and we can know a whole new season. Today’s surprise snowfall then really isn’t all that much a surprise, yet it still fools us as we begin to feel the entrance of Spring. Knowing that it won’t last long and become a distraction, it is amusing to watch the shifts and love the surprise. Walking outside in sandals was a bit presumptuous, though happy that boots were in the car. As the car warmed up, the clearing of windows began and in that clearing… there was a bit of fun.
Playing with our days can create such creativity that problems can soon become something we look forward to exercising into solutions and ah ha ha ha moments.
On this 96th day…
Take a problem into the labyrinth today, play with the possibilities each turn provides as a new perspective and see if you don’t find something that is more honest in the answers you develop.
Let this month unfurl your creativity, spontaneity and jocularity. It feels good to feel good and while we have been conditioned to shush our good times, let the labyrinth be our own private creation station of amusement, enjoyment and playful experiments. This month educate with amusement and see how much farther you get. Have fun and be creative. We have three opportunities to education your potential with amusement this month that involves either your personal walk, your ability to design and how much you can learn by sharing. On your Mark, Get Set…Go!
- Innovate – Walk Amused
In the 30 days that grace this month, play with the way you personally experience the labyrinth. Let this season of education be one of personal bests and enjoy finding a new way to be innovative, creative, inspired and amused in your personal experiences. I’d love to see what you come up with!
Please share your wonderful experiences!
2. Create – Design Inspired
To date I have created 95 different labyrinth creations and designs since the beginning of the year, let that inspire you to create something new this month that is inspiring and firing for your imagination. Einstein said that playing with ideas was the highest form of research and this is an education for all of us. As you walk in new ways, share your designs as I have done with mine last year and this. Perfection isn’t what we are after, amusement is! I look forward to seeing what you come up with! I will toss out lots of inspiring ideas… stay tuned daily.
Share away and become a glad designer instead of a mad one!
3. Relate – Share with Care
One of the best ways to learn anything is having to teach or explain it to someone else. Whether you facilitate others, teach or simply share with a few, spend the month discovering amusing new ways to help others get more out of their walk with a lighter attitude and a more earnest enjoyment in what you share. Anything you want to know more about, share and this month share with a fun flair and notice how much more you actually begin to understand. You just might find a side of yourself forgotten. To receive all that, be a great giver.
Share what you discover!
