Queen of Your Own Life

Ask the Hard Questions

She definitely didn't have all the answers. But she was smart enough to ask herself the hard questions. - Queenisms™

She definitely didn’t have all the answers. But she was smart enough to ask herself the hard questions. – Queenisms™

When is the last time you asked yourself some hard questions – and then listened to your own heart for the answers? Those answers are the sign posts on the journey of life. They tell us which road to take, when to stop and rest, how long to keep climbing, and which travel companions are best. Two of those questions, for us, have been:

  • What do I want to leave behind as I begin this next leg of my journey that no longer serves me well?
  • What do I want to take forward with me as I journey onward that still works in my life?

Notice we did not say “who?” We said “what.” The who is a product of the what. Do you want to leave behind destructive behaviors or fearful decision-making or hiding your gifts to fit in? Do you want to take forward your sense of humor, your resilience or your creativity? The answers to your questions will be very individual. So please dare to ask. And, most of all, dare to listen. We’d love to hear your answers to these questions. As we share our stories, we help others probe deeper in this questioning part of our journey. So you’re being of service to others when you share. Asking and answering two important questions will serve as a guidepost for decision-making about your next life adventure.

    What do I want to leave behind? All animosity for my ex- husband and his new wife. I want to leave. Behind my insecurity about the acceptance and or lack of understanding from my family and current community.
    I want to bring forward my appreciation of beauty I all of its forms and my goal to read works from my state Literary Hall of Fame inductees. I want to find my group of creative, adventurous people to explore all the delights of the world around us and to share dreams and to hold each other accountable.

    Teresa, you sound like me several years ago. As long as I kept obsessing about him and her, I felt miserable. The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. It’s very freeing to not care what my ex-husband is doing. Our paths intersected for a while, then veered away from each other. That’s okay. I like my new path. He would not have fit in with who I am now.

    What a great goal, Queen Teresa! Creating the opportunity to travel with creative, adventurous people sounds so glorious.

    You are a wise Queen indeed, Queen Tammi! Thank you so much for sharing a part of your journey. That means the world to us.
