Inner Growth Word of The Day 205 – Active

July 24

Inner Growth Word of the Day: Active


Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: 1. characterized by action rather than by contemplation or speculation.


Active in a sentence: Being active in life involves doing things that are a part of your day-to-day, as well as things that you’re passionate about.


Active in action: When you take the necessary steps to complete a plan or to finish a project you’ve already started that is being active.


Active and inner growth: A look at the things you’re most active with in your day-to-day and the passions you pursue through your being active allow you to be aware of the level of energy and enthusiasm you hold for each task.  With this awareness you pursue inner growth as you look to do more of what you’re active in and less of that which doesn’t bring about the same level of energy required to be active.


Active and inner growth action steps:

  1. In-depth self-exploration questions: What does it mean to me to be active? How has being active in life changed who I am?  What have I learned about life by being active?  How has being active affected my relationships?  Why is it important to be active?  What have I noticed about the things I’m active in?  Who has influenced how active or not I am?


  1. List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with active at the center and then list or put around it all the other words that come to mind associated with it. From this list pick one word that makes you think of the one thing you’ve been most active in so far in your life.  Then write about this thing with the other words from the list.


  1. Bring your awareness to your feelings about active and as they flow throughout your body notice where they start and where they go. If you notice your emotions stopping in certain parts of your body focus on each spot and as you do this visualize a flowing river.  In this flowing river you see those emotions continuing along their way, down the stream.  When you’re ready allow thoughts to come in and focus on the one thought that is most impactful emotionally.
