Three Words

Did you read the book Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert? I read the book and was very engaged by some of it and truth be told there were a few times I wanted to say, "Elizabeth! It's not always about you, okay?" But of course that's what the book WAS about. ;-)

Elizabeth was able to find three words that told the story of that season of her life. Which makes me wonder, if I were going to choose three words to describe my journey of the past few years what would they be? I noticed when I tried to do this there was always something physically real popping up in the trio of words. I made myself stick with one syllable words which are verbs. Here are a few combinations I came up with...

Clean, Drive, Paint
Push, Leave, Rest
Trust, Pay, Enjoy
Trust, Choose, Sew
Learn, Hope

After I made this list it struck me that perhaps I could choose the three words that will describe the next season of my life. Of course not everything is in my control, but some things are - maybe two out of the 3?

What three words
describe your journey?

keep you from doing what you can do."
