1. Define LIFE without researching, just off the top of my head
2. Return to definitions of LIFE on previous post
review and find what I want to use
3. Summarize LIFE using the first two steps
4. Take a nap
I am not working today. I am so relaxed and just plain happy. I've cleaned my house, seen my doctor for a checkup, washed linens and clothes, prepared lunch for my husband, played a game on my phone, and now I'm beginning to write my "term paper".
Life to me will be defined totally from my perception of the right now.
I plan on using inductive questions using the who, what, when, where, why, and how.
I will use those questions out of the above order as I define my life.
Beckie's life is an ever-changing existence.
It is fluid within the limits placed on me by family, work, friends, and my own choices.
It is fluid even when I think it may be stagnant.
(ONE HOUR is up! This is not as easy as I thought it would be.)
For me life is defined by my past, my present, and my future.
I am a daughter, a sister, a cousin, a friend, a wife, a mother, an aunt, a CTRS, a Bible teacher, a writer, a swimmer, a walker, a driver, a reader, a case manager, a committee member. That's all I can think of at the moment.
I said it above. This is not as easy as I thought it would be. Defining LIFE without a dictionary in front of me. The dictionary would take all of the struggle away. It would give me the answer. And as I sit here contemplating this definition I find myself thinking of my friends that are so quick to come up with answers to hard questions. Wonder how they would define LIFE.
I've spent the past hour and a half thinking and writing, I've folded another load of laundry, I've answered a text, I've deleted/erased a whole page of rambling, I've been living life.
I did not complete the above outline. But that is not a bad thing. I did begin (again) and I will continue.
For me at this moment in time LIFE is the living response to everything around me.
I 'll pick up here tomorrow.
