Immersing Myself in My Life Work

Once again it's time to cast wishes with Jamie Ridler. This week she asks: What do you wish to immerse yourself in?

I wish to immerse myself in my life work. Not just life and not just work, but a careful intertwining that means I'm not merely getting by, I'm doing something meaningful.

I've started viewing what I want to do and how I want to spend my time as my life work. It means focusing on my core values including love, comfort, and safety- bringing them to myself and others.

It means paying attention to what needs paying attention to and understanding that changes from moment to moment.

In one moment it might mean focusing all of my attention on helping my toddler with a Donald Duck puzzle. In another moment it might mean focusing on writing a few paragraphs or speaking with a client.

There will be moments where I need to listen, participate, accomplish, cook, lead, follow, or rest.

Recognizing that all these moments, all these actions and activities, they all serve a purpose. They are all part of my life work.

How about you? What do you wish to immerse yourself in?



  1. You articulate so very well something I've been feeling pretty keenly the last couple of years.

    As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you too!
