At Tales from the Great Adventure, Blog Pal Derek asks a great question for reflecting on our own lives and for reading one another’s reflections on their lives:

“Our lives tell a story; they are a body of work.
What story is it that you tell,
simply by living?”

Mary Beth of Terrapin Station writes of being in a place in her life of joy and wonder:

“I feel like I’m in a place that everything in my life has prepared me for.
I don’t know what it will look like going forward, but I’m excited!”

Rosa at Las Puertas Abiertas de Par en Par is asking questions about life and writing and weeding:

“As I worked around the plants in my flower bed,
trying to pull out the root structures of the weeds,
realizing my favorite daisy plant did not make it through the winter,
I wondered about the life I have built for myself.”

Rosalind of Over the Water is reflecting on life in poetry:

“Unguarded breath conjures dust devils,
smoke without fire,
echoes of disgrace remembered
by the ashen light of dawn.”

booksAnd you, friends? What stories are being told by your life? What joys and wonderings, what sorrows or stresses? How are you paying attention to the stories being told through your life’s actions? How are you imagining the next chapters of your story?
