Life is amazing. We all have our OWN unique filter – perception. What might be true to one person may not be so for another. So here is the thing…. In life sometimes our journey isn’t always easy, and we have choices on how we are choosing to perceive the situation and not only that, how we are choosing to either react and/or act.
Look at this picture. There is so much to see, yet everyone may be drawn to certain aspects of the picture: the water, the sunset, the angles or the different compartments, if you will, made by the trees branches….
So, where am I going with all of this? Simple. When in situations that may not be so wonderful and or comfortable… stop, breathe, and then truly take the time to take in the situation. Feel it, look at it, and listen to what your heart is saying. Then, and only then, make the decision of how you are choosing to react and/or act.
Some people look at hardships and see losses. I only see opportunities. Why… the things we have been through in our life have been opportunities of self-discovery and choices on shrinking into self or blossoming out of self. Through the blossoming of self, we have been opened to new possibilities and outcomes. And in being open, we are now in a space of Conscious Co-Creation, if you will, with the Universe… saying, “Yes, I am ready for more.” Not only that, you never know who has been waiting to hear your pearls of wisdom. We are all teachers for each other.
Expand your horizons and be willing to see and listen to others’ points of view- their perspectives… It is a very diverse world out there with many paths of wisdom. If you automatically close your mind to another’s point of view, then whether you like it or not, you are missing out on some amazing golden nuggets and “AHA!” moments. There is NOTHING gained in opposition, however there is LOTS gained in being open-minded and neutral in a moment, so that from there you get to learn something and then choose what to do with information.
I love learning from all types of people. I love the different angles and perceptions. It expands my mind, body and spirit. It challenges me and makes me discover new things, new ways, and new people. It also pushes me out of my comfort zone. And, it is ONLY when we are out of our comfort zones that we truly grow. That is where much divine wisdom lies: outside the circle of status quo.
Stretch yourself, be positive, and know that you can do anything you set your mind to!
