Workbooked: Past, Present, Future

Breaking from past events sometimes have a way of meeting up with us in the future, either as a memory or an activity which continues from where the initial break left off.

1. What are some breaks in your past that have caught up to your present? How have those breaks influenced and helped determine your present way of life, attitudes and interests?

2. What if those breaks from the past have never occurred—if years after their place in your life, they still exist—or persist? How have they, never having been broken, contribute to the positives in your life today? How have they contributed to what you might consider to be the negative aspects of your current life?

3. If breaks are inevitable and time is the variable, what insight(s) can you glean from their relationship?
