What’s first on your list and what is last
What’s important abiding what fizzles fast
What gets attention amid all the calling
What stock is rising and what stock is falling
What gets your presence and holds your focus
What do you let go of when there is no locus
What provides satisfaction and keeps you returning
What does your heart long for and has you yearning
What rings the bell of your discerning mind
What fades in the distance and gets left behind
Now that you’ve answered all the above
Can you clearly point to things that you love
May I make a suggestion and be so bold
It’s a smart thing to do as you’re growing old
Every so often and ask
What stays around and what doesn’t last
It’s very important for you to know
So you can fill your life with what makes you glow
For you fill your days with delight
You will sleep soundly and rest well each night
Think about your responses to the questions in the poem?
Do you surround yourself with the things that make you glow or do you have some sorting to do?
Imagine what your life would be like if you were surrounded by what
turns you on?
What is in the way of that becoming your reality?
