At the inception of this blog series, there were 75 days before New Year 2017 began, according to the Gregorian calendar year. In keeping with the format, for the next 17 days (Monday – Sunday) the blog postings will ask you just one question. That question may inspire you, it may perplex you, it may anger you, it may be the catalyst for indelible change, or it may even tickle you.
The intent of the 75 questions is to probe, to prompt a reaction, to get you to stretch, to press beyond tradition or boundaries, to think broader, to break free, to face the fear, or liberate you by confirming what you already know for sure. You are only asked to respond with a thoughtful answer to the question.
Each question, ultimately allows you to discover how to love yourself which by expansion allows you to love and share empathy for others. Grief is love that everyone is exposed to.
“Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.” ~Vicki Harrison
These 75 question can precipitate change. The question is to be a inquiry into pathways of inner change that leaves you feeling more safe, in control, powerful, intrigued, and authentic. When these amazing emotions are opened up within you (they already exist), you change and your world changes and the whole world changes with you.
Question 58: How do you grieve/honor the tears you carry?
