Two Great Conversation Starters to Open Any Conversation Wide Open (Ep. 10)

“What are you celebrating in life right now? What are you navigating?”

– Reid Auger

In this week’s chat, our friends Reid and Ed are catching up using a couple of conversation starters that have a way of opening a conversation wide open. Reid has a great trick to make these chats more fun and meaningful. He simply asks, ‘What are you celebrating in life right now?’ They both agree it’s super important to take time to enjoy and celebrate all the good stuff in life. But their conversation doesn’t stop at celebrations. They also dive into the second question in their series of conversation starters that really make you think: ‘What are you navigating in your life right now?’ They believe this question is key to forging stronger connections, as it opens up a safe space for folks to share their current struggles and ask for a helping hand if needed. These questions are a secret life hack on how to get a conversation flowing and have a few chuckles along the way.


  • Asking the question ‘What are you celebrating?’ can make conversations more positive and allow the speaking pair to take a conversation anywhere they please.
  • Focusing on accomplishments and milestones in life can bring a sense of joy and fulfillment.
  • Celebrating the achievements of others, such as children, can strengthen relationships and create a supportive environment.
  • The question ‘What are you navigating in your life right now?’ allows for deeper conversations and provides an opportunity for people to share their struggles and ask for help.
  • Navigating parenting older kids can be challenging, but it also provides opportunities for growth and meaningful conversations.
  • Being informed and making well-informed decisions is important in navigating life’s challenges.
  • Open and honest communication is key in building strong relationships and fostering deeper connections.
