Reverb10: Advice to My Future Self – Live the Questions!

December 21 – Future Self. Imagine yourself five years from now. What advice would you give your current self for the year ahead? (Bonus: Write a note to yourself 10 years ago. What would you tell your younger self?) (Author: Jenny Blake)

For now, since I am so far behind on my posts for this project, I am going to focus on the bonus part of this prompt. I have had this quote swirling around in my head for some time and had I had it ten years ago, I might have enjoyed the journey to where I am today much more. I am almost certain I’ve posted it in this blog before, but it fits perfectly here and therefore is worth another spotlight:

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions.” ~Rainer Maria Rilke

Now that I think about it, perhaps that’s the best advice I can give my current self too.
