Ask the Next Question

Today my intention was to “ask the next question,” because my assessments have been weak. I leave information on the table because I’m squeamish about asking the follow-up question. Today, I asked the next question. Setting the intention this way was a good idea.

I’ve felt mired in the “suck” for a few months. It’s an undulating suck whose waves align with the beginning and ending of semesters. Mid-degree, mid-semester is the worst. The suck of the suck means there is so much to embrace! Group projects, reflection papers, field! They are all back, again. The second year means a second chance to do a little more, a little better. More time for me, less time worrying about things I can’t control, people who don’t care, and assignments that don’t need my best.

Today’s intention was a small victory for what matters. I may try it again.
