“Trouble” is my middle name, too…and my daughter happens to share it..although I think we call it moxie and spunk:)
Thank you for sharing this list of questions. I understand the “purpose” well. I have known one friend well for four years, and only in the past few weeks has she “discovered” I work in energy. How could you be in my life and *not* know that about me, it is what I live and breathe and am. But she didn’t. Sometimes I am so transparent with World, I need to be most aware of those around me.
The answers to the questions come readily to me; as you reflect, it is the sharing, the inspiration, the knowing that is the gift in it all:)
If you approach each day with the innocent idea that you're going to learn something from each person that you encounter, your life will pivot. My hair assists me in having these types of conversations and learning opportunities. I was returning from the east coast on an airline and four of the flight attendants surrounded me (kindly) as I approached the bulkhead mid-flight. They said, "okay, you have to tell us about your hair, but first, we just have to say that you have the friendliest look on your face. You seem to glow. Can you just tell us a little bit about yourself?" I didn't take this as an imposition, I looked at this as an opportunity to learn and share. "What's it like to earn a living 30,000 feet above ground?" "Is flying fun when you're off the clock?" I was curious about who they were and their stories equally. And they saw an open, friendly face topped with curious hair.
