Mindful Monday #17 – Questions
Happy Monday! My life is changing rapidly as a result of my decision to take a Leap of Faith. My Month of Writing has become something else entirely. I allowed the month to be whatever it needed to be for me by letting go of my expectations for the month. I have used this month to reflect and talk with peers and mentors and hoped to flush out my ideas as I plan my next BIG career goal. As a result, resistance and fear are coming up. I am thankful that I have the awareness that they are present so that I can keep them in check. And as a result, I feel I need a change in perspective in how I think during this process. I am choosing to live outside my comfort zone which I feel requires me to think outside my comfort zone too. In the process of flushing out my ideas, rather than getting answers, more questions are coming up and I am starting to wonder if it is my fear and resistance that is making this gray area grayer. In trying to seek answers I chose two quotes that I feel will help me during the week.
“Live your questions now, and perhaps even without knowing it, you will live along some distant day into your answers.” – Rainer Maria Rilke
“The boldness of asking deep questions may require unforeseen flexibility if we are to accept the answers.” – Brian Greene
