This past year was sort of an experiment in disconnection. Stepping back from intense searching and longing. I spent more time observing. Living the questions. Practicing being with the unknown. I want to remember these:
What is it like to not care so much? How might disconnection serve me?
What can I let go of?
What does it truly mean to love myself? Love others?
What does self-acceptance look and feel like?
Is this relationship reciprocal? What’s my role?
What’s the pattern here? What’s my responsibility?
How can I be less responsible?
What does it look and feel like to be fully present?
What is my relationship with openness and structure?
What do healthy boundaries look like?
How do I contribute what I really want?
What is the best way to share my gifts? What are my gifts?
Am I willing to risk stability to live my truth? What are the limits?
Can it be easier?
When will I be ready? Will I know? Is it time to leap?
Is this a time to push through? Persevere? Get tough?
Is it time to sit back? Accept? Slow down?
Will I survive this?
What is the next step?
What is this longing?
