During my six months break from publishing the Words that Shine blog, I was amazed how constantly my heart and mind had been challenged and inspired. This continuely reminded me to use my signature quote ‘Living life with passion’ as I learned and embraced life’s lessons.
Look up from your computer, phone and tablet. Look around you and check in with your five senses.
What do you see? What do you hear? What do you smell? What do you feel? What do you taste?
What about the most important sense of all, your sixth sense.
If these senses are blocked or stationary then you cannot move in any direction. I challenge you to imagine your senses stopped, totally stopped. Just to get anything to work at all there must be some form of movement within that sense. Even to look backwards you must first look forward.
To self reflect you need to move or look forward in your thinking so you can then look back to reflect. Remember you can always steer something that is moving but you can’t steer something that is stationary.
The three images below are great illustrations of looking forward in order to look back. The raindrops may stop you seeing clearly but they add their own dimensions to the picture.
If you have a really good look at the photos there is work in progress with protective bunting. There are several different buildings, grey skies, raindrops, rainbow, trees, and a road. By using your imagination once again, the mirrored images could represent many areas of your past. But how big is the mirror? Now look beyond the mirror and you will see your future big, bold and full of many more adventures.
I challenge you through your Words that Shine Experience to keep moving forward and the beauty of your life will be reflected in your past.
Living life with passion
