Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is this person looking back at me? It’s not someone I recognize right away. Is it the old me or the new me? Sometimes it’s hard to tell.
The new me wants to move forward and is making progress in that direction; meanwhile, the old me wants to retreat to old, familiar, and comfortable ways. How is this serving me? Quite frankly, it isn’t. It is causing havoc in my life and the lives of those I love.
Each day we make choices, some good and some bad. Worse yet, sometimes what we considered to be a good choice wasn’t. Discouraging? It certainly can be if we are not conscious and moving forward without purpose or connection to a higher source. We like to think we have control of our lives, but we don’t. We are constantly faced with obstacles. How we handle them makes all the difference in the world.
Retreat or power through? Avoid or confront? Escape or stay? Choices. Some choices are made in a split second, while others are mulled over for a long period of time. Does the length of time matter? Yes. There is a window of time for possibility. If action isn’t taken during that window, the opportunity is lost, or at the very least, only a new version of the former opportunity will be possible, with modified obstacles.
These are some of the concepts I’m opting into through classes at The Center for Intuitive Development. My mind has been opened and my awareness has broadened. I have awakened a desire to live a more enlightened life.
