Contemplation…should be my middle name. I tend to contemplate a lot, probably more than the average person. Maybe because every new experience I encounter becomes a part of my “story” that I write and live. I often contemplate about choices and just how darn amazing the universe is. I taught an amazing class on Saturday at Heritage Palms Country Club and after class I contemplated about how wonderful the life I live is. It amazes me that the choices I have made have led me to the best part of my life. School is starting all over and for many years I would be very busy right now greeting my new students and starting the school year. This is my 3rd year of not being in the traditional classroom, but instead working with adults in the art of writing their memoir. I contemplate about the path I have chosen. I am grateful for my students and their joy and enthusiasm of love they give me each with each class I teach.
If you are working on your memoir you are doing a lot of contemplating. You look at your memories, you observe them and you think of the thoughtfully. You may study your pictures of your life and look at the paths you have chosen. You may look over those things that you have held onto for many years that have their own story wanting to be shared.
