The Alive List

I recently came across this alive list and it made me stop and think about my own. We get so caught up in the day-to-day and I’ve found it really important to think about what you truly enjoy and what makes you come alive. We’re all gifted in such unique ways, let’s highlight those gifts and passions and move toward what we’re called to do.

I hope this list will inspire you to create your own. In no particular order, here’s what I came up with:

giving someone a thoughtful card or gift
exploring a new area
taking photos
making a list and checking it off
reading in bed
making time to write
a long walk
catching a beautiful sunset
hearing God’s direction for my life
decorating my home and making it hospitable
bargain shopping
sitting on the beach
a crisp sunny day with white puffy clouds
praying for or with someone
feeling rested
quaint downtown cafes and bakeries
perusing a bookstore
gaining new understanding while reading my bible
a great cup of coffee
riding a bike
seeing prayers answered
arranging a bouquet of flowers
cooking something delicious
riding a boat or kayak in the harbor
enjoying the silence of the mountains
