Last month on a group coaching call, my writing coach asked the question: What’s a 10 for you?
On a scale of 1-10, what in your life brings you joy, peace, bliss, at a solid 10?
Is it watching your kids play? Is it the perfect piece of cheesecake? Or watching the sun rise?
One of my 10’s is working on the Word of South Festival, which is why I’ve been missing from my blog for the last several weeks. Should I have planned better for this busy time? Absolutely. Lesson learned for next year.
The good news is that I’m busy working on an event I love – and one that makes a difference in my community. That scores a 10 for me.
What’s a 10 for you…and do you get enough of it in your daily life?
