I’m sitting across from Brene Brown. Our legs, as she calls it, criss-cross-apple-sauce.
Me: What does it mean to you, to live a good life?
Brene: A good life happens when you stop and are grateful for the ordinary moments that so many of us just steamroll over to try to find those extraordinary moments. To me, my good life is soccer practice, and carpool line. And tuck-ins. And date night. That’s the good life for me. And knowing that it’s good. Acknowledging and stopping and saying that it’s good.
There’s a classic book by Richard Carlson called Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff…and It’s All Small Stuff.
What if instead thinking about the small stuff as something to be sweated, we found the grace in it’s existence? The seed of gratitude.
An invitation to learn. To connect. To release into ease. To allow your good life to unfold.
That’s the call. The invitation. The invocation.
How will you answer?
