Brisk and cheerful readiness.
To turn up every day with alacrity isn’t easy, it’s about many things being attended to.
Yet, when we’re able to turn up with alacrity, then the next day holds even more promise.
We have to daily identify and reconnect with what we are most concerned for and care about.
Living as if we’ve seen all there is to see and we know all there is to know is a dangerous place. Being jaded and disenchanted means we fall short of magis – more: the promise of tomorrow.
‘Living with doubt is always more profitable than living with certainty.’*
We like it when those around us turn up with alacrity, which is significant, because most of what the future holds is going to be made up of people working together.
I can also trust what my life is saying to me when I am seeking to connect with all that matters most to me, to others, and to the world.
Alacrity provides us with momentum, to push us from what we know and what we love into what we do.
