A question that makes you think is worth asking…

At the cusp of a new day, week, month, or year, most of us take a little time to reflect on our lives by looking back over the past and ahead into the future. We ponder the successes, failures and standout events that are slowly scripting our life’s story. This process of self-reflection helps us maintain a conscious awareness of where we’ve been and where we intend to go. It is pertinent to the organization and preservation of our dreams, goals and desires.

 

  1. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? Sometimes 2 and others 140 I have never been just one age and I love that about me.
  2. Which is worse, failing or never trying? Never trying is far worse because failing is just a lesson to learn.
  3. If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do? Seems that we go along with the crowd to fit in even if that isn’t in our best interest. Sometimes because it takes so much energy to be different.

  11. You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified.
