As I celebrate my 25th birthday, I'm so glad for the quiet of the night, a sweet respite from the hustle and bustle of the day... and of life. I'm happy for the ME and HIM time, to reflect and reminisce; to dream and plan. As I look back on the first 25 years of my life, I ask:
What have I done?
What have I been a part of?
How have I grown?
How have I wasted valuable time?
I must anwser these questions in all the many categories that make me who I am: my spirituality and religiosity, my academic and professional life, my love and family relationships, my physical and mental capacities even my past time and voluntary activities.
Then when i have answered these or at least attemped to answer, I will challenge myself for the next 25 years... What will I do with what I have been given???
Answering questions about what you've done and who you are can be a difficult, daunting even scary task but it stands to reason that unless you know, honestly know and accept who you are; you simply cannot actualize your very best... SOLITUDE sweet enlightening SOLITUDE.
