[ ? ]

I'm [ ? ] years of age now.

Is it the right time to [ ? ] , reflect and evaluate?

If I could use one word to describe me right here and now , it would be : [ ? ]

How would a trusted friend define me if I asked them for [ ? ] honesty?

Am I : [ ? ]

I'd best describe my current life as : [ ? ]

I have been in the midst of [ ? ] for far too long.

I don't want to do [ ? ] anymore.

Do I coast along and meet my commitments or am I [ ? ] free of those?

Do I have [ ? ] anymore?

Do I have [ ? ] to pursue?

Is there anything [ ? ] me if I took the risk?

As I contemplate, I know now it is the right time to stop, reflect and evaluate.

And yes, it seems I still have dreams.

The future belongs to those who have the courage to believe in the beauty of their dreams.
