Read Write Do, Day 2
Be so wrapped up in something that you forget to be afraid.
~ Lady Bird Johnson
Your mission: Be so busy loving your life that you have no time for fear.
~ Karen Salmansohn
Thinking will not overcome fear, but action will.
~ W Clement Stone
Write About This
When is the last time you enjoyed doing something so much that you lost track of time?
What worries and concerns were you able to forget about while you were doing this thing?
How did the temporary break from these bad feelings affect you? How were you changed when the activity ended and you re-entered "real life?"
If possible, do that thing you just wrote about, again. If it's not possible, spend some time thinking about something you can do today, for a significant stretch of time, that will require so much of your attention that your thoughts have no choice but to be all-consumed by it. Give yourself permission to do it.
Read Write Do is a three-part activity intended to help our minds and hearts grow, rather than shrink, during the time we are all staying home. If you "sign up" using the above button it will drop into your email box every morning for thirty days. No cost, no nonsense. Just something nice to do.
Once you're signed up you may log in and leave comments below. I'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences.
