Challenge #188, Friday, July 7, 2011: Ah, I’m so sorry!
When I look back on the short amount of my life in which I’ve been able to make big, life changing decisions, I realize that I have made quite a few of them. I like to think that it is because I like adventure and change and new people and places–and that is true. But occasionally I’ve been wondering if there is some deeper reason I’ve made the choices I’ve made. Why do I like change? Is there something I’m afraid of? Is there something I am searching for? People make decisions for all sorts of reasons (although Freud would disagree)–I wonder why I have made mine.
Challenge #189, Friday, July 8, 2011: I think that being honest with oneself is a very important thing–and in this particular topic, I don’t know how to accomplish personal honesty–but that is what the challenge is. Today, be totally honest with yourself about why you make each decision you make, and maybe think about why you have made the ones in your past.
