So today I went for a nice long walk around the lake which isn't unusual for me. Walking around the lake or biking are typically when my philosophical sensibilities tend to really come through. I began to think about my life, how far it has come, where it is going, and if I could change anything about it what would that be. I ask myself these questions a lot and I also know that if anything about how my life has unfolded over the years were different, how much it could drastically change the many experiences that I’ve had.
I wouldn't have crossed paths with some of the many people that I cherish in my life and also how some of the important lessons that I’ve learned, some very painful, some through tragedy, but also some through great experiences, I would have never had a chance to learn. So I thought for once, instead of me writing on and on about what I think, feel, or have learned, I want to hear from you. I want to pose to you a series of important questions, questions that can dig as deep as you allow them or be as shallow as you want them to be. But they are questions I want you to answer nonetheless:
- Who are you?
- How do you think your life has panned out so far?
- Where do you see your life headed in the future?
- What are the most important lessons you have learned?
- If you could change anything about your life what would it be?
- What is the hardest part about life for you to handle?
- Will you ever find purpose or peace in your life?
I’m interested to see the differences in the responses I get and I wonder, does anyone else ever really contemplate these questions just as often as I do. Y'all be easy and have a good week!
