Letter from the Battlefield

ADHD & Marriage News - April 3, 2024

Quote of the Week

“One of the pieces of advice I was given as I was heading out into battlefields was that if I thought this was going to be the end I should write a letter.  Nothing clarifies what you care about most as the idea that you could lose it all.  How would you summarize your life in a few sentences?  You'll be amazed at what comes out.”

- Dr. Sanjay Gupta, journalist and neuroscientist

Letter from the Battlefield

This is a powerful idea for identifying what is truly most meaningful to you.  Who would you write to?  Would there be more than one letter?  What would you want to say?

I took Gupta’s idea to heart one day when I was on a plane and looking for something to do.  I wrote two letters – one to my partner, and one to my children.  I’m not heading into the battlefield and will likely not share my thoughts immediately.  But writing them did focus me on some important truths that deserve to be expressed somehow, someday (maybe without the references to death!)  Further, writing these notes reinforced that the path that my life is now on is one that is nurturing me and providing great joy.

Would you be willing to write a ‘letter from the battlefield’ and see what it brings forward?
