Give me a beach. Find me a corner in the reading room. I know, I know, not everyone likes a beach. Some people can't stand the stillness of a library. That's okay, we all have destinations we love and ones we avoid but if you ever spent time watching sea birds wade, you know how much there is to learn.
Beaches and libraries can both be introspective places filled with endless possibilities but they can also be the very place where storms and ideologies conflict.
So for this prompt, let's imagine powdery sand and turquoise sea and sky. After all, you came here to relax.
Breathe deeply. Close your eyes. Think of a quiet place that makes you feel happy and secure. Sit for 5 minutes noticing all the thoughts and feelings (even the ones that make you uncomfortable). Open your eyes. Move to the "Lumi Write" without pause.
What did you feel and see in the "Lumi Sit"? Take 5...
What would happen if you decided today would be amazing? Ditch the long lists, struggles, “I should….” or “someday I will…”
Just do an activity you love and do it today.
Maybe it’s dinner with friends or family. Maybe it is writing one paragraph of your novel or dancing to a favorite song. It could be a walk in the sun on your lunch break or a simple act of kindness. Is there one thing that you can do today that would make you feel luminous?
Reinvent your Monday by meeting all expectations at home and at work, while finding a sense of excitement because you will also do something that feels inspiring.
What’s your one thing? Make it easy, make it fun, and make sure you do it!
