What do you do wholeheartedly?

How often do you do it?

How long has it been since you have done it?

Can you remember the last time you did something wholeheartedly?

We measure “vital signs” by checking our blood pressure, temperature and pulse rate.

That tells us we are alive,

But it doesn’t tell us how fully, completely, alive we are.

We take our “vitality signs” by noting the number of things we do wholeheartedly,

How frequently we do them,

And how long it has been since the last time we did them.

We cannot be partially alive.

If our heart isn’t wholly in anything we do,

We are only pretending to be alive.

We may be 98.6 and breathing,

But we aren’t dancing,

We aren’t singing,

In the rain, or anywhere else.

Find what you can do wholeheartedly,

And do it.
