Welcome to Day 10 of the IN AWE 21-Day Challenge! Today we spark inspiration, meaning and joy by BEING PRESENT.
Even though we’re self-quarantined, not able to go to our favorite restaurants and unable to be within six feet of friends, it’s still hard to slow down and be fully present at times, isn’t it?
CHALLENGE: Do you find yourself idly scrolling on your phone? Binging Netflix? Reading negative headlines? Wishing away this moment? Well, use this moment, right now, to stop and make a list of 10 things you could do during this season of stillness. Things you’ve “been meaning to do” or that would bring you joy now that you have “found the time” that always seems to escape us.
INSPIRATION: Being fully present is both extremely rare and a true gift. “We were not made to be a thousand places at once. We were meant to be here, in this moment, right now.” – John O’Leary, IN AWE p. 93 (Man, that’s good! And I wrote that long before the idea of living in quarantine was… reality 😉
ACTION: Now, DO one of the things on your list. Begin it right now. Share your list or how it felt to do one of the things on your list in the comments on Challenge Day 10 page or with a picture of you DOING the thing on social media, tagging me + using #inawe. Tomorrow* I’ll pick one person who does to win a copy of IN AWE to gift to a neighbor, favorite barista or as a random act of kindness (because you’ve already preordered copies for yourself, friends + family, right? :).
My friend, today is your day! Live IN AWE.
