What is your “Is?” It’s the place where you feel truly at home.
You probably have some ideas.
But if you’re confused, perhaps a few of these questions may catch your attention. Only spend time with questions that are of interest.
A simpler way to say it: the questions can be used as:
Clues to “Youse”
Hey, I’m allowed, I grew up in the Bronx and Queens.
Some questions will be a fit for you. Some won’t.
Like a good detective novel, the questions that spark a sense of curiosity you, or hold your attention for even a couple of seconds or more, are pieces to figuring our your personal puzzle of:
“Who am I?” and “What am I doing here?”
So, copy & paste those questions
onto a new word doc called “Clues to Youse.'”
It’s just a suggestion, of course. And it is not necessary to actually answer the questions. Often, the answer is in the question. The fact that it has got your attention is enough–at least for now. This a space where there are no grades; only levels of interest. So, if Question 121 catches your attention, and you so choose, copy and paste that question into a new doc. Label the doc so you can easily find it if you want to add more questions/clues to your list.
