A piece of poetry emerged tonight – not my intended response to the Quest 2016 prompt offered today, but there you go.
The wind made me do it.
Theme: Prioritize your value
Visionary: JOHN JANTSCH
Prompt: What can you stop doing in 2016 such that it would allow you to focus on higher payoff activities?
In 2016, I will stop apologizing for things that need no apology.
I will stop diminishing myself.
I will stop living in the land of intentions.
I will stop postponing action.
I will stop holding back.
How about you? What can you stop doing next year?
I see the wind changing.
Pushing back on the river’s flow forward,
quickening its surface like poorly-ironed silk.
I hear the wind changing.
Threading itself through clusters of chimes, sounding like sea air, teasing and circling and rising before waves.
I feel the wind changing.
Entering like a swirling potion of ether – wooing me, pricking tears at my eyes, sending my heart all-a-swoon.
