things I’m trying to do this summer

Posted by Jenna McWilliams on June 8, 2010

  • Cut down on my caffeine consumption
  • Wash my dishes before bed each night
  • Step away from my digital communication devices from time to time
  • Read more novels

I believe that it practically doesn’t matter what changes you decide to make, as long as they help you become more reflective about how you live your life. I’m not a spiritual person, which is to say that I don’t have religion and don’t feel a need to get some, but I do believe in the holiness of the moving body. I do believe that moments of total presence in one’s life are rare and sacred and therefore are to be pursued with all one’s might.

So little things–not letting dirty dishes stack up, reminding myself how to sit still and silent, re-learning the natural rhythms of my body and brain–can be tools in the pursuit of those sacred moments.
