THE FOUNDATION OF LOVE, YOU
I explore where I am in my life—literally and philosophically. Wherever I am, this is where I begin—even if “where am I” is a small echo of mystery.
What does saying “Here I am” involve? How do I identify my emotions, own my lessons, confess my truths, accept my strengths?
Does what people say about me resonate with me? It may not be my ultimate truth—but it plays a part of my narrative. What would happen if they did see me?
What do I think about that doesn't serve me? If I focused on choosing my thoughts and changing my narrative, what might I be capable of?
What’s the purpose of dreaming big, just to come back to day to day life? What can dreaming do besides give me a goal to work towards?
There’s a dual desire in me—to know what I don’t know, and also not to know the whole story of my life.
What are some ways I surrender on a daily basis. Is surrendering an art, path, or destination for me?
What is my new narrative—my “new truth”? What is the most life-changing thing I can conceive of and achieve toward my new reality by the end of the day?
Do I let the reality of the world's complexity beckon me further, even to the world I don’t know? I may not be in control the world around me, but what role do I play in it?
How can I continue to widen my eyes to the infinite sky of possibilities when the road I will travel is unknown?
Instead of trying to forget the past, or undo what has already been done, how can I give fire to it? How can I see my roots as part of my beauty?
