It’s one thing to see something new about yourself, or someone else, or a situation you’ve found yourself in. It’s another to do something about that new perspective so that you can learn and grow from it. I’ve definitely been guilty of gaining a new perspective then quietly sweeping it under the carpet because the action required feels a little … well … uncomfortable. Nobody’s a fan of having to have a conversation with someone who you maybe misjudged, and then maybe pointed the finger at, and then maybe told others about too, right?
Anytime we see any part of our life from a new perspective, we have an opportunity to grow from it. Taking action is the simplest (and quickest) way to move toward that growth. The good news is that we don’t have to know every step required before we start – just the first. And the even goodest news (that’s a word, right?) is that there’s a simple way to find the first step too. As my spiritual teacher (actually both of my spiritual teachers) have reminded me often, just ask. Sit in a quiet space, connect to your heart and ask your own guidance to show you the step to take. Then take it!
