I break out my trusty and well worn thesaurus.

What is your cornerstone today?  Around what, do all things pivot?

Is it schedule or money or mood swings?  Is it acceptance or recognition?


Perhaps the “what” should have been “who” all along.

With whom does your heart lie?  With whom does your focus reside?
