I love to fantasize. You probably knew that. Last night when I should have been sleeping I began making a list of everything I ought to pack on two upcoming trips. Honestly, who cares? But I did, at about 2 AM. Then as I began to make my list, I thought of you. What fun to find out what you can’t live without when you travel, no matter how small the suitcase.
This morning as the idea formed in a fully conscious brain I realized some of the things I would always take with me on trips are also things I need for life. Period. And that sounded like even more fun to blog about.
So today’s list? You’re about to be born to a family here on earth, and you can pack a few things you will have with you all through your life. What will serve you best?
Just tell us by commenting here–and not on my pages at Facebook or Goodreads, since it’s too easy to lose track of entries. Remember that I give away an autographed book each month, and if you comment on any of that month’s “list posts” then you’ll be entered in the giveaway. It’s that simple.
Lists: Packing for Life
1–A sense of humor, because without this, life can be overwhelmingly sad
2–An appreciation of beauty, because without this, life will seem ordinary and plain
3–A sensitivity to the feelings of those around me, because without this, life will be lonely
4–A desire to help others, because without this, it’s impossible to make any lasting, meaningful connections
5–An understanding and appreciation of my own talents, because without this, I might not find the courage to explore them.
Now it’s your turn. What will you pack? You don’t have to list five. Just share your thoughts and enjoy.
