Are we so focused on what we want, or what we think is happening that we miss the big picture? Is it really that easy to see it when we look for it? When others are caught up in a drama it is easy to see what they are missing. You just want to yank them and shake them until they wake up, but it is hard to do it with ourselves. In the past I have been just as guilty, not seeing my own drama, or patterns, or whatever else has been holding me back. Years have gone by and I did not notice the bear, until he began to jump up and down right in front of me. Positioning himself just so…to where I could not look around him anymore…wanting me to see him, and it is then and only then that I did.
So it made me realize that this is the answer to all of life’s questions! That the answer is right here if we just see it. So let us stop what we are doing right now! Breathe…Relax…Slow down our minds… Start zooming out on life. Get a little distance from it. What are we missing? In business? In love? With our family? With our friends? Start to watch your life as you would be watching a show! What would you do differently? What needs to be done? What changes would you make? You know the answers…if you don’t, keep zooming out. Give yourself some distance until you can see the whole picture. If it helps, look at your life as if you were looking at someone else’s…what would you see? What would you say to them? What would you change? The answer is right in front of you! Look for what is obvious! See the bear!
Just a thought…
Searching for the Perfect Life in a Perfect World… Remember that to make a difference in the world we need to begin with ourselves. The choices that we make influences everyone around us, and to change in any part, changes the whole.
