Part 3 offers a few ways to “reframe” your fixed mindset to one of growth. Reframing simply means looking at a situation from a different perspective.
It’s like looking at a painting or photograph hanging on someone’s wall. You saw it, but it didn’t grab your attention. The next time you visited you were drawn to this same image. You asked your friend what was different about it.
“Oh, I didn’t like the frame it was in,” she replied. “So I bought a new one. It makes all the difference, doesn’t it?”
You can do the same thing when looking at your circumstances, relationships, and opportunities. If you don’t like what you are seeing, you can change the frame.
Have people in your world been talking about “One Word”?
They sure have been in mine.
They’ve been talking about it for weeks.
I didn’t know it was a “thing” until last year when a new friend told me about it.
I had created themed years before, but hadn’t refined the practice to a single word.
The practice is the same: Use your word/theme as a lens or filter for everything that happens in your life. You look for experiences where the word/theme develops and challenges you to become a better version of yourself.
You think you are headed in one direction and the Universe will take you in directions you never imagined!
It’s really pretty cool. 🙂
And that’s what this week’s episode is all about. Let me know what you think and if you will pick “One Word” for 2019.
Making and taking time for the activities and relationships that are most important to you is key to your health and happiness. Too often we let less important activities consume our time or we spend too much time making things perfect when “good enough” will do.
Continuing somewhat with the theme of “healthy boundaries,” this week I share thoughts on identifying activities as “non-negotiable,” to ensure that they get the proper attention that they deserve.
During life’s tough times, instead of pulling away and thinking no one cares or needs to be burdened by your challenges, reach out to accept a hand in support.
Likewise, when a friend is going through tough times, be attentive, kind, and compassionate. Your job is not to fix their situation, but to witness, listen to, and support them. You can do this without feeling pulled down or sucked into their “drama,” by using a simple energy clearing technique, I share in this episode.
