Should and Must: Week 2

“Your Own Path You Make with Every Step You Take”

The Creative’s Book Club provides a safe, supportive environment for people who want to dig deeper than reading alone will allow. This Winter, we’re reading Elle Luna’s “The Crossroads of Should and Must.” I LOVE this book. It’s an easy read and full of insightful stories, illustrations, and quotes. The book club meets Wednesdays at 10:30, until 2/4/16.

Week 2 began with the following quote, by Joseph Campbell:

“If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it is not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.”

We shared stories about following the breadcrumbs throughout life and the journey being important to the present moment.

We discussed childhood interests, fantasies, the things we do when we procrastinate, and the role these have played in our career choices and hobbies over the years.

We found our must.

Then, we wrote two versions of our obituaries: one for the path we are currently on, and the other for the path of choosing our must.

This week, we’re trying something new. We’re doing one thing we’ve never done before.

Up next: We get practical.
