@entMagazineAmy) shared an extremely personal experience regarding losing everything in a recent fire. Everything. There's always an editor's note. But this one was special...perhaps because it was so raw, open and honest. It made me reflect on what holds me back from doing certain things, and how I would feel if I lost everything tomorrow.
Blame it on reading in bed at midnight, or that the new Resident Evil commercial was playing on TV in the background...but this was my thought: If you were running from a zombie, what would make your list of
would've, should've, could've? More than that...if you survived and had the opportunity to "reintegrate," how would you build your newly invigorated life? I realize this is an
extreme example to
jump start the thought, but extreme is often necessary to provoke
Like many, there are things that I want to do but haven't found
the time. Why? I'm stuck in my routine.
Today, I changed the routine.
I woke up an hour earlier.
I spent more time with my family before work.
I meditated about weaving all the things I want out of my dreams and into my reality.
I drove a different route.
I'm building my "would've, should've, could've" answer slowly...but I think I'm finally asking myself the right questions.
