what makes you come alive?

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do it, because what the world needs is people who have come alive." - Harold Thuman Whitman

Tell me. I really want to know. What makes you come alive? Do you know? When did you know? Leave me a comment, send me an email or write it on your own blog. I'm interested in what makes people feel their best. When do you feel most alive?

I will post a thing about it tomorrow for you and maybe get some ideas from down here okay. Take care Carolyn.

I think I have mentioned this before but I feel most alive at moments when I just notice that it is a perfectly beautiful day, the garden looks lovely, I am just sitting on my deck, with a cup of tea/coffee and everything is OK in my world. I know it isn't terribly exciting but it is that feeling of being right in the moment that speaks to me.

Being a mom makes me come alive...more alive than I knew was possible. I always knew I wanted to be a mom, but once I had Donald, I wanted more. 100 more. I really cannot describe it beyond that. I've jumped out of planes, seen many parts of the world, met some amazing people...famous and non...and basically just had some amazing experiences, but I have never been so happy as I am right now in my role as Mom.
