It’s Day 5 of the Here to the New Year in Good Cheer challenge. “E” hopes to electrify and energize you so you are engaged, entertained, and ultimately enriched by reading.
“E” words encapsulate the experiences I enthusiastically endeavor to share with everyone I encounter. From embody to evolve, I envision programs to help expand, explore, and exude the excitement of enriching lives by fully engaging in them.
What word epitomizes today’s tip? As much as I enjoy verbs like empower, embolden, express, evoke, enliven, and emphasize, for this challenge I’m electing to endorse the idea of emerging.
Derek Rydall has an entire education system based on the Law of Emergence. Derek encourages us to achieve our potential by activating the genius already in us, not looking for it elsewhere.
What’s outside may very well enthrall and entice us. But when we embrace the existing excellence inside, it enables us to engineer our own brand of brilliance.
So how might this advice come in handy, especially during the holidays? Well, rather than eating, drinking, or shopping excessively at the first sign of stress, try to ease into the ensuing mental exercise.
Extricate, evacuate, or evict yourself from the situation, if possible. If you can’t escape, breathe slowly and deeply and empty your mind of emotionally charged exchanges. Remind yourself you are equal to the task at hand and able to enjoy what is going on around you as well as within you. Perhaps an epiphany will enlighten you. (And peace will guide the planet. And love will steer the stars.)
What effect do “e” words have on you? Please express them in the comments below. I’m not trying to extort you, but there could be a prize in it for you.
Tomorrow we have the letter “F” to look forward to. See you then.
