There Are Four L's in Life:

Equilibrium June 11, 2008


One of the processes we use in Emotional Fitness is called the Lifescale. It consists of ten questions, which together help us make sense of the balance we have between our satisfactions and frustrations in life. Each question has a key word that happens to begin with P, such as Pleasure and Pain, Peace or Pressure.

As a fan of cryptic crosswords and word games generally, as well as being a writer, I am fascinated by how we use words to express our feelings and beliefs. There is a power to the words we use that can change whole perspectives and ways of living.

If you care to try a definition of life (without being technical about it) you might find it daunting and even unrewarding. If you look at its meaning, you may get into so many hypothetical possibilities that you go around in circles. If, however, you take the particular perspective I offer here and use the first letter of life to stand for love, laughter, listening and learning, what happens?

Let me know. And while you’re at it, come up with other possibilities – for example, the four H’s in Human are Hope, Happiness, Health, and Heart.

In peace
