Every year around this time, I subject my husband (and now my daughter) to questions about the past year and what we envision for the coming year. One year, when I had his undivided attention during a long drive, I even got my husband to help me map out some goals and a mission statement for our marriage. It makes me smile now, but I was on to something!
Following some links, I came upon the coolest thing! It’s called 10Q, which stands for 10 Questions, is a national project that asks people to answer a question a day online for 10 days during the High Holidays. It offers a new way to slow down and reflect. Answers are emailed to a secure online vault and next year, just before Rosh Hashanah starts, answers are sent back to participants and the whole process begins again.
I would love to know what I was thinking all those past years, but that’s lost now. Going forward, I am definitely doing this. I may even blog about it.
Register at DoYou10Q.com to follow and answer each day’s question for yourself (you certainly don’t have to be Jewish). Each question has more information with it so you can learn more about each question’s Jewish background.
