What would it take for you to be at peace with your life
just as it is?

Which includes doing what it takes
to make your life more like it needs to be
than it is.

What does your life need to be
that it isn't?

Where is your life deficient?
Where is your life excessive?
Where is your life being neglected/ignored?
Where is your life being restricted/confined?
Where is your life being overrun/violated/disrupted?

In what ways do you need help with your life?

To what degree are you aware
of your relationship with your life?

In what ways does your life reflect/exhibit/express/incarnate/reveal
who you are?

In what ways does your life inhibit/conceal/deny/oppose/repress who you are?

How would you describe your relationship with your life?

In what ways do you tend and serve your life?
In what ways do you expect your life to tend and serve you?

In what ways do you cooperate/collaborate with your life?
In what ways do you contend/clash with your life?

What do you need from your life?
What does your life need from you?

If you wait until you are drowning
to learn how to swim,
you make it harder on yourself
than it needs to be.

See how many places you can apply
this pithy little insight
throughout your life.

It will change your life.

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters, three sons-in-law, and five granddaughters, and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
