A List to Live By

A fellow journeyer of life sent this to me and I loved it. Absolutely loved it. He was in a small town in Washington State named Troutlake. He said it was posted in a cafe in town. These are definitely some people I could get with!

In light of our recent economic crisis we’re all sharing in, it’s causing many of us to question life, our purpose and what really matters in life. Things like money, work, consumer goods, and fancy cars are being replaced with things like sharing, gardening, volunteering and community. Maybe crisis really is our friend afterall?

Nevertheless, I want to aspire to live by more of these. I need things like this to remind me of a direction and to keep me from just thinking about myself all the time. I think this is amazing and totally fitting in my world today.

My favorites are:

Learn from new and uncomfortable angles, Garden Together and Play Together.

The one I want to move most toward is “leave your house know your neighbors.”

Check out the list – what are your favorites? How is your life moving toward these?
