One thing we at the Clergy Health Initiative value and have posted about from time to time on this blog (here, here, and here) is the idea that even small, singular steps can be very effective in the journey toward behavior change.
Shel Silverstein was one of my favorite poets when I was growing up, and I still enjoy his works. Some of his poems are quite silly, while others hold significant meaning. The following poem, “Woulda-Coulda-Shoulda” has always been a favorite, but I think it’s particularly relevant in the context of Spirited Life.

For me, that “one little did” was signing up for a CSA (community-supported agriculture) this summer in my quest to eat more fruits and vegetables.
What is one small thing you can do to chase away a “Woulda-Coulda-Shoulda” in your life?
