I distinctly remember being in a deep depression years ago. I called my mom (moms know everything) and she asked me one question that was a turning point…
“If you could do anything or be anywhere right now, what would it be?”
My answer “in the ocean.” I scuba dive and the ocean and it’s watery inhabitants have been a passion of mine since I was a kid. The reason this was a turning point was it helped me dream, to shift into passion and joy and to get curious.
If we aren’t dreaming, we aren’t connected to self. Dreaming brings curiosity, curiosity brings experience, experience brings options and possibility. This process is what I continue to use to keep my mental health vibrant and my soul ignited.
So now I ask you, “If you could be anywhere or do anything right now, what would it be?”
