As we embark on this journey, we are profoundly grateful for the luxury that this trip affords us to pause and reflect. To make the most of this opportunity, we’ve begun to think of questions that we would like to ask ourselves and others as we wander into new territory.

And, in this quest for questions, we would appreciate your input.

What are some important questions you ask yourself?
Or would like someone to ask you?
Or wish you could have asked yourself in a previous stage of life?
Or want to ask someone else in your life?

Give us some ideas in the “Leave a Reply” section below.

    Sean, your first question got me thinking, and it’s just taken me a while to get a post up. The last time I’ve seriously thought about how the choices I have made have shaped my life was when I was writing my vows just before Sten’s and my wedding. All the choices that I had made in my life, perhaps even particularly some of the poorer choices, led me to a series of events that ended up with me meeting Sten and eventually marrying him. What I came to realize while I was writing my vows was that what makes a bigger difference is not so much the choices that I make, but how I choose to deal with the consequences and rewards of those choices. I admire you and Erica for opening yourselves up to the chance for many choices and for being brave enough to take life on without predicatability. I think you’ll be stronger for it in the end.
