Today is the fifth day of Kat McNally’s August Moon. I have participated in her Reverb projects in December as well as her April Moon offerings, so it was a no brainer for me sign up for August Moon again this year. it comes at just the right time for me, I believe. There is a lot swirling around in my head and heart these days, and I’m looking forward to using the opportunity that August Moon gives me to work through those things that are rattling around inside of me.
Today, Kat gives us the following:
What would your perfect work day be like?
The work itself does not need to be clear. Your work could be your craft, your hobby, the way you tend to your family or home, whatever.
Just get quiet and ruminate for a while. Think up the most delicious, delightful scenario… one that’s so good you may be ready to believe that it’s not possible.
Observe as much as you can.
I knew that this prompt felt familiar. I knew that I had thought these thoughts. And it felt like I’d pictured this many times, in fact. That’s because I had!
In that piece, I thought about my days and in the end came to this conclusion –
I don’t think it’s too much: meaningful, engaging work, augmented by creative pursuits that are supported by my love and friends.
Man! That feels true and right still.
When I take a look at the actually outline of what I wanted that day to look like, it still feels true and right. Probably because those are things that have made their way to my Mondo Beyondo lists. I keep seeing that day. It’s what keeps coming into my head and my heart. I cannot wait to get to a point where it is actually a possibility – if even just a few hours of it. It makes this work and sacrifice worth it in the end.
Tell us about your perfect day. What does that gorgeous thing look like?
