Waking Up With Total Amnesia

June 17, 2019

If I woke up today, who would I be?

 

If I woke up today and had complete amnesia, who would I be?

 

If I could be anyone, who would I be?

 

 

 

 

What's interesting is that, when I try to answer this question, my mind immediately goes to things I'd want to own, places I'd like to travel, titles I'd want to hold, and role models I'd want to be like.

 

The question though, is "WHO would I BE?"

 

Not what, why, where, or anything else. But WHO would I BE?

 

I surmise that I would be grateful to be alive.

 

With no memory of anything in the past and no expectations of the future, how could you not be grateful?!

 

I would be happy.

I would be engaged with and curious about the world around me.

I would be awe-struck by the sheer magnificence and vastness.

I would go slow, taking my time and enjoying each bite.

I would be easy going.

I would enjoy connecting with others deeply.

I would laugh easily.

I would forgive easily.

 

How could you take yourself so seriously?

 

Do what you must each day, of course. But being serious… in the midst of being alive?!

 

My goodness, I think you're focusing on the wrong things.

 

The smells, the sounds, the sights, the tastes, the feelings! How incredible it all is!!

 

How many talented people there are to enjoy and be inspired by?! How many incredible natural phenomenon to observe?! From the tide moving in and out, to the mountains soaring up into the sky. From the flower in full bloom, to the colony of ants working together. What a mystery and a miracle it all is?!

 

So, who would I be?

 

I would be grateful.

I would be happy.

 

Who would you be if you woke up today with no recollection of past or future?

 

Who would you BE?

     1. IMPRESSION: A Comprehensive Guide to Optimal Wellbeing

The book, IMPRESSION, is both an inspiring call to action and an educational tool that will equip the reader with the knowledge they need to live a healthy and fulfilling life. For at least half a century we've been told that health consisted solely of diet and exercise, when in reality it's much more than that.

 

IMPRESSION explores the ten interrelated elements of our wellbeing and how they each play a pivotal role in determining our lifestyle. From the food you eat and how often you are fulfilled by your work, to the type of people you surround yourself with and your sex life, each of these choices influences your level of overall wellbeing.

 

IMPRESSION is an acronym for the ten interrelated elements of our wellbeing:

 

Intellectual

Monetary

Physical

Restoration

Emotional

Social

Spiritual

Intimacy

Occupational

Nutrition

 

IMPRESSION is an investigative look at how certain types of lifestyles lead to happy, healthy, and engaging lives, while other lifestyles lead to a host of problematic thoughts, feelings, and emotions about the past, present, and future.
