068 The Price of Love

068 Calling LoveFor almost two years, a very simple writing exercise has helped me excavate my hidden truths, clarify my wants, increase my patience and listen intently to my inner voice rather than the distractions abound.This exercise is VERY simple. If it takes more than 10 minutes of UFTAE (Uninterrupted Focused Time And Attention) then stop over thinking it and just write the first thing that comes to mind….even if it’s jibberish.

Now don’t simply write the first part once then answer it 12 ways right below. By writing the ENTIRE sentence you are giving yourself enough time to process what to express next.

There is also a price to be paid to articulate and feel this love. This price is the “letting go.” Letting go of our vulnerability…releasing our truths…liberating our voice.

Consider those moments when feelings of unconditional love and non-judgemental belonging have freely touched your heart. What did was released to create the space for it to enter?

Here’s your writing prompt for the day…

I feel love when I let go of __________
