A Series of Questions from Your Inner Voice

Are you conscious of your conscience?

Have you asked yourself…

Why you feel compelled to take one course versus another?

What are you after?

Where are you going?

Do you have a “why” that drives you?

Is there anything that relentlessly grips your awareness?

Do you have a brilliant idea that won’t let you sleep at night?

Do I have your attention?

What’s been occupying your space lately? Is it helping you get closer to your maximum potential? No? Why not?


Are you there?

Can you hear me?

Is this thing on?

Where was I? … oh, right.

So how’s life treating you lately? Could you describe it in a single word? Would that word have a positive connotation?

How long are you going to keep this up?

A year? Five? A decade?

Hey but who’s counting, right? I mean, what’s the worst that can happen? It’s not like you can actually die from stressing over your past regrets…


Are you listening? Why are you even here? Am I hitting a nerve? Why are you getting so defensive? Can you please stop looking at me like that?

Am I asking too many questions?

Is this seat taken?

Where are you going? Wait, have I offended you?

Are you still there?

Don’t you recognize me? It hasn’t been that long since we’ve last met…

Has it?

Where have you been? Didn’t you know I’ve been waiting here this whole time? What took you so long? Aren’t you glad you agreed to join me?

Oh shoot, what time is it anyways?

Are you late AGAIN?

Let’s get back to this later then, shall we?
