Reflection

Life is an adventure which cannot be boxed in. Starting from a single point, life widens outward. It is an unpredictable progression of experiences, a unique creation. Life searches, responds, chooses and unchooses. New perceptions arise leading to deeper understandings. Life is a movement deeper into Life.

Prayer

 O God, deepen my wonder and gratitude for life.

Action

I will retrace and reflect on the years of my life. How did I get here?
Where am I willing to go?

Suggested Reading

 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?
Luke 12:25 

Life is creative. It makes it up as it goes along. It explores itself, intent on discovering what is possible. Life requires that we change. It cannot discover new possibilities otherwise. This is the freedom that life gives itself, the freedom to become. Life moves forward toward wholeness. Each new hour holds new chances for a new beginning.
Margaret Wheatley 

We do not remember days, we remember moments.
Cesare Pavese

In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.
Abraham Lincoln

My life is my message.
Mahatma Gandhi

Life is a succession of moments, to live each one is to succeed.
Corita Kent

The most satisfying thing in life is to have been able to give a large part of one’s self to others.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
