BLOG: What Was I Thinking!?!?!?!?!

There comes a point at which we take a step back and reflect on the life we are living.

 

 

In our more evolved moments, we recognize that it's been a beautiful life and are filled with gratitude.

 

In the other moments, it's more of a vehemently bitter:    

 

"What was I thinking?!?!"

 

...or some more colorful variant.

 

While this line of thinking leaves us feeling irritated/sad/unsettled, it does acknowledge that we have been complicit in getting to where we are.

 

All those years we were sitting in the driver's seat, even if we were on autopilot. All along we were making or defaulting into decisions that created consequences, and some of them are painful.

 

But the pain tells us something.

 

We are so used to fighting/working/playing through the pain that we ignore it, or worse, numb it out.

 

And the more we ignore it the bigger it gets.

 

So pay attention to the pain - What is trying to say? What do we need to do differently? What is the opportunity here? - because it's the only way we are going to be able do better in the future.
