Dinner with the Pink Panther

Late but lovely evening last night.. .. .. Spirit got home & then we headed out the door for a dinner date. Get this... no potluck, no cooking, no effort at all on my part except show up & eat. How awesome is that? And eat I did... steaks still juicy, mango avocado chutney, roasted ears of corn & baked yams.... we had great food and even better time spent in conversation with some friends we'd not seen in quite some time. Been over a year, I think?

Am participating in a month-long assessment of strengths, based on the book StrengthsQuest by Tom Rath, over on HighLowAha. Today was a listing of your top 5 strengths and opening up come chat about the accuracy of your findings. I thought mine was fairly accurate.

So, Week/Strength 1 (of 5) : Connectedness
Things happen for a reason. You are sure of it. You are sure of it because in your soul you know that we are all connected. Yes, we are individuals, responsible for our own judgments and in possession of our own free will, but nonetheless we are part of something larger. Some may call it the collective unconscious. Others may label it spirit or life force. But whatever your word of choice, you gain confidence from knowing that we are not isolated from one another or from the earth and the life on it. This feeling of Connectedness implies certain responsibilities. If we are all part of a larger picture, then we must not harm others because we will be harming ourselves. We must not exploit because we will be exploiting ourselves. Your awareness of these responsibilities creates your value system. You are considerate, caring, and accepting. Certain of the unity of humankind, you are a bridge builder for people of different cultures. Sensitive to the invisible hand, you can give others comfort that there is a purpose beyond our humdrum lives. The exact articles of your faith will depend on your upbringing and your culture, but your faith is strong. It sustains you and your close friends in the face of life’s mysteries.
