Have you ever come across a word that really lights you up? A word that gives you a full body, visceral experience? That happened to me the other day when I learned about the word: Meraki.
Meraki is Greek and it means:
1. To put piece of yourself (your soul, creativity, or love) into something.
2. To love doing something so much that you put a part of yourself into it.
When you do something with Meraki, it means you are doing that something with passion, with absolute devotion, totally in the moment, with undivided attention.
Whether that is singing, dancing, painting, lovemaking or being expressive in any way, Meraki allows your unique soulful, loving and creative spirit to be manifested into form.
To me, this is what it feels like to be turned on by life. And what an extraordinary, expansive and connected feeling that is.
So, today I ask you – when do you experience Meraki? Send me a note and let me know what lights you up.
