So I got busy and created my own acronym:
S: Spirit (spending time in prayer, meditation, Bible study, worship--it could be as simple as revelling in the beauty of autumn and being thankful to God for his creation)
H: Heart (loving those around me...and showing it in tangible ways.)
A: Art (this one's for my photography...taking pics, learning about photography, or just
enjoying others' artwork.)
P: Pen (writing.)
E: Exercise and Eating right.
Now every evening when I retire, I spend a moment reflecting on SHAPE. Was I able to accomplish the things I want? Did I notice God in my everyday? Did I demonstrate love today to my family, friends, or students? Was I able to eke out a little time for art and pen?
What did I eat today--was it healthy and nourishing? And finally, did I at least find time to go for a walk with my buddy Baron?
These goals aren't earth-shattering; and may not be yours, but to me, if I am true to them, I think I will have lived well on this earth.
If you had a personal acronym, what would it be?
