Day 9: Examining the Meaning You Give Your Life

photo, Lake Atilan, Guatemala, by Maree

Remember on Day 4 when we explored looking at things with different lenses? Today we get to choose a lens through which to see our life and its stories. Denise points out, "You are constantly giving meaning to events, so why not try to find ones that are empowering and do not cause you stress or anguish?" In this spirit, she invites us to notice the meaning that we give everything today.

And speaking of noticing the meaning, what meaning do you give "the emotions"? As we move into the watery world of feelings, I know many are expecting the arrival of tears. And there will likely be some. But are you also imagining bliss? What about anger? Longing? What is the lens through which you are currently viewing emotion?

I'm finding that I'm resisting the "assigning meaning" part of this, but I do plan to make a prayer stick. It is raining today, something that doesn't happen all that often in north Texas!

This is already going in a much different place then planned. I hope all of you will find it equally as exciting!

Just joining in now, very much led here by megg. I'm going to jump right in with water week, but start with catching up in the book. I'll try and do air when it seems appropriate.

It has begun raining in Oregon, after a fall of lovely leaf colour!
I've shared a water blessing on my blog - it's so sweet, & I'd 'forgotten' it for awhile. My granddaughers (8 & 4) are out of school this morning, so I'm going to go & do it with them, & then we'll do a harp lesson :)

Well, I certainly didn't expect what water washed out of me today.

Judi said...

That picture - Caroline found it calming - I find myself wondering why the water isn't on!

Welcome to the fray, Ina!

Seems like there's a lot of wet weather.

A prayer stick will definitely take me a long while - but I did manage to get an entry up!!
