In the solitude of your mind
are the answers to all your questions about life.
You must take the time to ask and listen.

You should always learn:
with life comes wisdom and
with wisdom comes the courage to live life selflessly.
The more you learn about yourself and
the experiences surrounding your life
the more opportunities you have
to make your life better and more fulfilling.
-Amy Candy, submitted by Heather K., North Carolina

Many of our “ponders” include a call to action: challenging you not just to think about what you read here but to DO something with it. Well, this week I dare you to do the opposite! Instead of setting a goal or completing a task or accepting a challenge, I hope you can sit back and ponder your life. What have you learned about yourself in the past few months? How are you different than you were a year ago? Who are you compared to the person you thought you would become? Resist the temptation to judge any observations as GOOD or BAD, instead just notice what comes up. Perhaps you can acknowledge some learning that has taken place, and maybe you will dream about what your next lessons could be.
