1. Speak your tragedy. It lets you know you are not alone, and let's your friends who aren't ready to speak their's, know that they are not alone either.
2. Pull from the archives. As I approach a little over 100 days left in this project, I have been thinking a lot about what it has meant to have a daily practice of writing 3 things that I have learned every single day. It has felt deeper than just journaling or making a list of what I have done or would like to do. It has required taking a moment of focus to really metabolize what has happened each day and what I have learned from my interactions with others, adventures out in the world, and minutes spent in my own head. A movement past just a daily recording of the day's facts and an attempt to pull from that archives of the day something with a deeper meaning that I can carry on to the next. Having taken the time to have these daily moments of reflection for the last 260 days, I actually don't remember what it was like to not do this. I encourage those of you who have been reading along to give it a try if you haven't. One of the best surprises of this project has been getting to know you, getting to know each other as we pause for a brief moment in the scroll each night. If you are out there waiting to be invited, here's your invitation to pull from the archives.
3. There are some people that just make you feel good. Spend more time with those people.
