A New Kind of List

We think that accomplishing things will
complete us, when it’s experiencing
life that will.
~Mark Nepo~

When I read these wise words of Mark Nepo’s this morning I wanted to share them with you because in some way I thought it was a continuation of yesterday’s post.  How many of you make lists of the things you want to accomplish each day?  While accomplishments certainly are important to our well-being, I think placing a little more emphasis on the experiences we have each day might enable us to live our lives more fully and with added joy.   Maybe it would be useful to reflect, at day’s end, on how many times we’ve lost ourselves in our experiences, and were totally and vitally present to what we were doing, because isn’t it in those times of losing ourselves that we find ourselves?
