the burning question....



Danielle LaPorte has started new fabulousness where she asks a "burning question" then asks you to respond. As a lover of a good question, how could I resist. Here goes:

I want my day to feel like walking barefoot on the softest white sand on the beach of Tulum.

I want kissing to to feel like the delicious first bite of decadent chocolate cake.

I want my next success to feel like the little girl confidently jumping off the high dive for the first time.

I want smiling to feel like Julia Roberts biggest, heartiest laugh in Pretty Woman.

I want my friendships to feel like a grand story, an open book for our eyes and ears only.

I want my nervous system to feel like a perfectly dressed day.

I want my teaching to feel like Seane Corn, Oprah, Frida, and Mary Oliver hanging out, having drinks, and discussing all matters of body, mind, and heart.

I want my money making to feel like the sweetest of exchanges between two friends destined to share.

I want my laughter to feel like thunder and lightning on a clear summer night.

I want my challenges to feel like a new yoga pose I discover and hold...uncomfortable at first, then settling in to receive, then letting it go.

I want my love to feel like The Buddha, Jesus, Krishna, Gandhi, and Mother Teresa on a picnic offering flowers to Kali & Ganesha while singing Amazing Grace.

I want my writing to feel like the mischievious, ecstatic, inquisitive, treehugging, poetic lovechild of Rumi and Mary Oliver.

I want my ideas to feel like the first taste of Poprocks....exploding and fizzing, sharp and delightful.

And you dear Ones....

How do you want it all to feel?
