As we explore memory this month at the Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga, this practice helps us to remember the wisdom that guides us through the dance of life. What matters to you? What are your dearest values?
Make a wisdom list of 10 thoughts that help you be yourself, whether that is positive affirmations or sage advice from a beloved grandparent. Don’t worry about trying to get down 10 all at once, start with a couple and fill in the list over the next couple of weeks.
Some examples might be:
- Remember to be kind to yourself.
- Remember that Granny always said you catch more flies with honey then with vinegar.
- Remember to take time to appreciate that first cup of coffee – slow down and savour.
- Remember to make choices based on values, not just wants.
Make this list your own – write the specific pieces of advice and wisdom that have resonated with you throughout your life.
