Like all thriving communities, Highlowaha has it's own set of traditions and rituals. You will have to keep coming back to discover them all, but today you gain insight into one of our many.
On the 18th day of each month we gather in community to share last month's high (best thing), low (worst thing), and the aha (thing you learned). You might recognize the words "high," "low," and "aha" from our blog's title, since the origin of our blog's name is based on this nightly family ritual. Click here to learn more.
This monthly commitment of sharing reminds readers of the discipline required in carving out time for life's simple pleasures - a core value of our blog and our blog's purpose.
Here is how it works. I get us going and then each of you visits today's comment section to share yours. Participate and get your name entered in a drawing for the Ray Wattson shirt of your choice. Visit the GalleRay to see the myriad of choices. Too fashionable for a t-shirt? Give us the name of someone who shines and we will surprise him/her with a Shine shirt - compliments of you!
High: Eighteen days into writing my book and I am still on track with my word count; The weather in Grapevine has been beautiful for most of November; Once again, the way I spend my days is 100% in alignment with who I want to be. It feels good; Time with friends; Finally, finally, finally I got squared away with all the bazillion packages I am supposed to have sent Highlowaha readers. (Kat, Peggy, Robin, Brian, and many more... there are packages on the way to you!)
Low: Richard traveled a lot in the past month; I got very behind in sending out Highlowaha packages and it makes me feel slack; I got a ticket for going 27 in a 20 mile an hour school zone, WHILE talking on my cell phone. Cha ching!
Aha: Writing a book is laborious, taking me about three hours to write 1,700 words.
That's it for me. See you in the comment section, where I hope you will share yours.
Signing off until tomorrow...
