Why must something be either good or bad? Why can’t it just be? Why don’t I just wait and see?
What do I fear? What do I really fear? Danger? Failure? Disappointment? Success?
Do I give my family all of my burnt cookies?
Do I let my children know they are wanted? Every day?
What seeds do I want to plant in my life? What do I want to gather at harvest time? Compassion? Generosity? Happiness? Acceptance? Do I plant frustration and expect to harvest peace?
How can I weed the garden of my mind?
Do I respond with greatness to things that are unfair, unreasonable, undeserved?
Can I, do I, use competition as an opportunity to serve others – or do I let it isolate me?
Why am I resisting?
Am I seeking perfection when I should be seeking practice?
Do my daily routines reflect what I claim to value?
What do I anticipate happening today?
How will I plan and prepare and remember?
Who can I give a pound of butter to today?
