Usually, I wait for the last week of the year to post the list of questions known as “Completing and Remembering”. This year I had a different thought. What if we thought about the questions 60 days before the end of the year? What if we saw there were things missing and we still had time to put something in motion? What if we stopped thinking we did not have the time and took just one action? What if????
I know just editing this post and mentally thinking through the questions has given me ideas of what would feel more complete if I took an action. For me, the smartest decision I made was to relax my grip on the throat of life. Come on, I know I am not the only person who does that. For years I have repeated the phrase, “do without doing and everything gets done.” In 2019, I was able to live closer to that truth.
It is from that perspective that I share these questions with you as November begins.
