A Love of Life

It’s that time of year when I stop to take stock and regain my equilibrium.

I hope you are enjoying the feeling of being fully alive.

If not, then maybe you too need to stop and take stock.


Lover of life,

I have forgotten what it is like to be fully alive.

I have become a functional, productive, serious adult.

What grasps my enthusiasm, my love of life,

and drags it down to the cellar and locks it up?

What causes me to neglect my deepest needs?

What leads me to be overly giving and responsible?

How can I let your creative, invigorating presence

be more fully alive and active in my life?

Prayer to Sophia – Joyce Rupp
