Unless we’ve got loads of cash and can choose exactly how we spend our time, we’re probably spending some time on things that are a bit mundane. Whether it’s doing laundry, replying to too many emails in a day, or whatever, we can get worn down by tasks not of our choosing.
That’s why one day I was feeling sorry for myself and pondering how I could inject more meaningful activity into my daily routine. Although I am privileged to be able to exercise creativity through by job in software design, it’s still not the same as creating something Just Because. So, I was driving down the road wondering when I’d be able to “do what I want”, such as be a pop star and famous author, and complaining to God about emails and laundry, when a voice seemed to whisper to me: sing, pray, write.
Sing. Pray. Write. Sing, because I love to. Pray, because it connects me to my life source. Write, because it exercises my creative energy.
All of these things are things I can do each day. I can sing to a CD on my way to work. I can write a quick blog over my lunch hour. I can pray at any time. And when I take the small amount of time necessary for doing these things, I feel refreshed, energized, and more engaged in life.
What three things energize you?
