It's been awhile since I've posted for one of the 50 Questions that Will Free Your Mind. I'm currently on Question #4... and as a New Year's Resolutions (I have many that will be posted shortly), I would like to post at least 1 a week until they are finished.
I am answering the 50 Questions that Will Free Your Mind as part of my own Day Zero Project. I encourage you to share your own answers here, on your own blog, or privately in your own journal. It's a great writing exercise that can also make for some thought provoking discussion.
When it's all said and done, will you have said more than you've done??
In all honesty, I find this question really intimidating. I feel like it's a question that it looming over my conscience daily - something that when you turn the corner you see it there, plastered on your living room wall in Freestyle Script, begging an answer.
I guess that having said more than I've done is one of my fears in life. I work well under pressure and authority, but on my own terms I'd say I'm only an 80-percent-er, meaning I always have full intentions of completing everything on my To-Do list, but usually call it good at about 80%. This is one of the things that annoys me most about myself, and most of the time I blame it on the exhaustion of this everyday life. Now that I've recently learned of my suffering with Hashimoto's Hypothyroidism and have started a treatment plan, I expect to have more energy going forward, and hopefully along with that more productivity.
This is a good question for the circumstances, because I think that the Day Zero Project is an excellent way to prove to myself and to others that I'm going to do what I say I'm going to do. With 887 days to go, I'm now 7% complete.
On a deeper note though, I often think about this question in terms of the future - the moment when we're standing at the big pearly gates. Will I have done enough? Helped enough? Given enough? Been enough of a mother? A friend?
I guess the answer is to wait and see. Until then though... I'm really going to try to accomplish the things I say I'm going to, and put my best foot forward in trying to do the things that I really want to do (i.e. I always sayd that I want to write a book, etc...).
