Welcome to Free Your Mind Friday! I hope that you all will join me as I take on this challenge. Every Friday from today, until 50 weeks from now, Fridays will be devoted to answering one of the 50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind. You can add your link each week to my post so that you can connect with other bloggers, and challenge yourself to answer the questions as well.
On my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days, you will find that one thing I plan to challenge myself with is to answer the 50 Questions that will free your mind. Each Friday from tomorrow until I finish, Friday's will be devoted to answering these questions.
These questions have no right or wrong answers.
Because sometimes asking the right questions is the answer.
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
Wow, what a question. I certainly hope that when all is said and done, that I have done more than I have said. That said, part of my goals this year to to be "present," to be aware in every situation. Aware of my actions, my words, how I am treating other people, how they are treating me. It is really easy to fall into a habit of saying, "I want to do this," or, "I want to do that." Truth is, there is no better time than now. I am notorious for making excuses, I am too young, I am too old, I am too fat, when I lose weight i'll do this, or that, but why not now. What is holding you back from getting what you want RIGHT NOW? Look around you, take a deep breath, you my friend, have been blessed with yet another day, a day that was not promised to you yesterday, make the most of it. I don't think that doing more than you have said insinuates that you have to complete everything you ever set out to do, because, lets be real for a second, sometimes we make goals that are so far out of the realm of things that we do that we might never get to them. We can try to set only goals we know are 120% attainable, but I think that takes the fun out of everything. Doing more than you say also means being humble, doing the right thing when no one is looking, doing something for the sake of doing something, and not just so you can blog about it, or tweet about it later. For me, sometimes it feels like those who "say" achieve more, they get more attention, things seem to work out more in their favor, but in the long run it won't, because eventually all of the "saying," and not "doing," will show.
