A Re-emergent New Year’s Road Trip

(From a text to Lisa Kauffman)

Well, we got on the road yesterday. Time went so fast in the car.

We spent six hours taking turns exclaiming—in a positive tone of voice, with enthusiasm and delight—some variation of “2017! What an interesting, great year!” and then furnishing our first thoughts.

After doing that, we took turns finishing (with our first thoughts) four statements:

1) Something that surprised me this year was . . . .

2) Something that touched my heart was . . . .

3) Something that inspired me was . . . .

4) Something I learned was . . . .

We also asked ourselves what were ten decisions we’d made that had led to interesting or pleasing results. (A decision qualified as a decision, and not just an intention, if we’d actually acted on it.)

We paid attention to our tone of voice, facial expression, and posture throughout.

I drove the whole way to Florence, Alabama (USA), and didn’t feel tired once. We did some yawing along the way! We sang a few uplifting songs. How effortless it all seemed! I sure enjoyed staying at the helm and directing my attention and enjoying present time.
