What makes you come alive? I invite you to be mindful in 2015. Zero in on the moment you are in, where is your focus? Put down the distractions, and give this moment your full attention. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and then open your eyes. What do you need most right now? What can you do to feel happy? Your own wellbeing and happiness is the greatest gift you can give anyone. When you are fully alive and in joy, peace, or love in this moment, whatever you give your attention to will receive the highest form of love from you. When someone is talking to you, give them your full attention, look them in the eyes. Put down your phone. Be mindful. Be considerate. If you can’t give them your full attention, tell them so. Be honest and clear. If you are giving a piece of your attention to many things, you’ll feel like pieces of you are everywhere. Give your whole attention to one thing or person at a time, and you will continuously feel whole and purposeful. Quality, not quantity.
Creative Indeed has been built upon this question “What makes you come alive?”, inspired by the quote by Howard Thurman: “Do not ask what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
