What have I lost that I would like to get back?
The answers to this question could take many different forms. Perhaps you have lost a tangible item that had great meaning or value to you. Perhaps you have lost something relating to your physicality, such as agility or hearing. Perhaps you have lost a relationship or simply lost touch with someone. Or perhaps you have lost a way of being in the world that you once had: a sense of wonder, for example, or an adventurous spirit.
Thinking back over the many stages of your life and who you were at any given time, what have you lost that you miss? Is there something that you can possibly regain? What would it take to recapture it? Or, are there things that you have had to let go of? Has anything meaningful or valuable arisen to fill that void in an unexpected way?
The act of remembering and naming those things that we have lost may help shed light on who we have been and who we are. Doing so may also help us move more deeply into who we can be.
