Happy Monday. I actually did try to look at some long held beliefs last week and get a new slant on them. I have the flu, so flopping on the couch and thinking worked pretty good for me. One of the things I thought about is how we are so quick to put people-our parents, our bosses, our doctors, up on pedastals. We want SOMEONE to know the answer, because we sure don't!
But in truth, do they know the answer either? "The answer" is probably a pretty individualized thing.
Another thing I caught myself doing was making declarative statements about a situation, just to resolve the situation. "I'm not going to XXX, that's it." but the truth of THAT situation is I'm not sure what I want to do yet. Do we create solid realities for ourselves just to avoid thinking about them? I know I do.
This week's challenge is easy. Spend a few minutes each day connecting with nature. Study a blade of grass, pick up a handful of soil, plant something. Let's all spend a few minutes each day, even two or three, calling spring to us!
