5 Very Fulfilling things to do in May (plus Movies to see)

5 Very Fulfilling things to do in May (plus Movies to see)

It's been May for 5 days already, 26 more days to go; so much to do, so little time! I don't have a challenge this month....pheew- mainly because i haven't completed the April challenge! Lol! I was indisposed for sometime and was forced to do the April challenge for about 48 hours but I am yet to do it of my own free volition! Technically, I did complete the challenge. For May though, i have a list of somethings i'd like to do; things that would leave me feeling fulfilled and grateful by June!  Do you have any big, medium or small-sized plans to execute in the month of May? Mine is a blend of small to medium sizes! 

1. See a whale

I plan to see an actual whale this month somewhere in New England-some "Moby Dick-y" stuff. If you can't find a whale near you to venture out to see, try something new, something you've never done (or thought of doing) before(Of course, something with zero hazards!) Get the most out of life, it intends to get the most out of you. Just saying.

2. Make Someone fall in love with me

"Provoke unto love."Heb 10:24

This might be one of the most eye-catching statements Paul ever made, and we know he made a few (Lol! E.g how he hoped the people confusing the gospel in Galatia castrated themselves!) Long story, short, the guy was a riot. Anyway, loving people is an irrefutable law, causing others to love you and other people around them is another ball game altogether. We need to figure out how to instigate love in the hearts of our friends, family, S.O's, colleagues and leaders.

3. Perform a miracle (make someone smile)

Miracle. ˈmirək(ə)l/ noun

surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency.

Miracles usually come through a person, an agent; a person willing to be the channel! The end result of a miracle is a smile and a lasting better quality of life. Is there a person you know, who needs a miracle? Are you ready to be an agent? I actually know someone...deep breath, ok, I'm ready! 

4. Create something that breathes

*side grin* Whoa, horses..hold your horses! By "creating something that breathes", I mean something that lasts! If you thought about procreation when you read the subtitle and it's on your agenda already, well tick for you then! Get on with it! Otherwise, May would be a great time to create something for yourself that lasts and enables you to share with others and create a pulse of delight! Maybe adopt a new life habit, or create a picture, learn a language, learn a new skill (i'm trying a few things out, can't wait to share. They are on the whale-watching scale. I'm kidding). Create something sustainable that breathes and that still exists 5 years from now!

5. Resuscitate a dying relationship 

Are you in a relationship or friendship that could really use some crutches and B-complex right now? Fix up your relationships that have been broken or that have gone dormant! I'm learning this everyday from Ed-the Art of keeping relationships with family and friends awake and alive!  

What are you doing this month?  Are you planning to create a smile on someone's face? Are you going to see a "whale", give CPR to your withering friendship or incite love in someone's heart?

N.B Movies to see this month!  

 I've seen Jungle Book, really good! Very colorful antagonists! Lol. Have you seen it too?
