What Would Be Unlived In Your Life?

“Who are you?” said the Caterpillar… “I  —I hardly know, Sir, just at present,” Alice replied rather shyly, “at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have changed several times since then.” — Lewis Carroll

“I say to people, ‘Follow your envy—it tells you what you want.’ It’s great information. If we don’t have access to our feelings, it’s like we’re driving without a map.” —Lori Gottlieb

While reading Lao Tzu’s Verse 24 on Living without Excess, I came across this sweet short poem by Hafiz. Even after All this time, The Sun never says to the Earth, “You owe me.”. Look what happens with a love like that, it lights the Whole Sky”. — Poem by Hafiz

“Think of what would be unlived in your life if it ended today”. You might actually write the obituary  – it’s a revealing exercise – but if you don’t want to do that, at least pause for a few moments and jot down notes on a piece of paper. — Excerpt from the book “Transitions: making sense of Life’s Changes”

Demonstrate your love for someone today with a small gesture. Demonstrate without getting “brownie points:” Do something nice anonymously for a co-worker, neighbor, or other friendly acquaintance. Make a grand display for your partner that you’re sincerely connected to—have fun with it! — Alex Katehakis

Your triggers are your own. I often get triggered when someone says something or does something. I am practicing recognizing those emotional triggers and then identifying those questions. I ask – what emotions do come up? Anger? Sadness? Rage? Fear? What’s the earliest childhood memory I’ve of feeling this way? I take responsibility for my triggers. Someone else in the same situation could be perfectly fine. The trigger is a messenger to me that I still have to heal the older part of myself. A triggered state is access to old beliefs. —Myself
