Grab a journal and write your answers to these prompts. Or write them in the comments below, or at your own blog. If you’d like, share your answers with someone you love, and listen to theirs.
Go with your first instinct as you complete the statements. Let your intuition lead. If you are writing, keep the pen moving. Don’t get stuck in “thinking about it.” Don’t look for the “right” answer.
You don’t have to understand your answers right away. Some may feel surprising or even mysterious.  Over time, their meaning will emerge for you.

Love, Tara Mohr
