What’s Easy?

by Nancy Casey

What do you find easy to do? Everybody is different—in the ways their minds work, in their physical abilities, in their preferences about how they like to spend their time. The constellation of activities that come easy to you is unique.

Today, write about one or more of the things that you find easy in life.

Consider your everyday activities. Are some of them so easy that you hardly even think of them? Do you procrastinate doing certain tasks, thinking they’ll be hard, only to find out they were pretty easy?

What do you find easy to do in a grocery store, with friends, or outdoors? What, in your opinion, is easy about having a family, going to school, or being in relationships?

Consider some of the skills you have acquired in your life. As you acquire a skill, an activity that you once found difficult becomes easier. What comes easy to you now that wasn’t so easy in the past?

What kinds of things do you find easy to remember? Are certain things easy to forget?

What have you found to be easy so far in this day, this week, or this year?

As soon as an activity that you find easy pops into your mind, write down a little bit about it. Describe how you do it and explain, perhaps, how your ability has developed over time. If you can, explain why you think this activity comes easy to you.

Then move on to another activity that you find easy, until you have filled a page with one description after another of activities that come easy to you. Read back over what you have written and make small changes if you like. Decorate the page if you like, and keep thinking about what you have written until a title pops into your mind

Write your title at the top of the page. Write the date on the page also, along with a signature or your initials.

Here is an example of what someone could write.

You can share your work by posting it as a comment below. You can type it in, or take a photo of it and upload the image.
