What Brings Me Alive?

Poet Ann Gengarelly writes:

I am living in a season where anything or anyone 
that doesn't bring me alive,
I will not mark in my calendar.

One thing that is definitely on my calendar is gardening! And another thing is meditation, particularly meditation retreats.

I could tell you about the things on my calendar that don't particularly bring me alive. Some of those things cause me actual stress, "Oh, i don't want to...."

And how about the loved ones who cause me more stress than aliveness? What to do? For the moment, i am simply waiting, practicing patience, and loving them from a distance. Maybe that is close enough.
