My husband and I recently took a vacation to Kauai, Hawaii to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful time even though it was just one week. While there we snorkeled, hiked, shopped and took a fabulous helicopter ride.
Vacations provide a wonderful opportunity to “step away from” life as usual…
Since returning I’ve meditated on the following question:, “So Patricia, what’s going to change – what are you going to do differently in your life now that you’ve returned to it with “fresh eyes”?”
Fresh Eye Perspective
What can a fresh eye perspective do for us, and what’s the point? We’ve all heard the statement about being too close to a situation to see it clearly. Well, stepping out of and gazing at our lives helps us see what we are actually doing.
Taking an unbiased objective view provides us many pearls of wisdom. We can see where we are supporting our selves, where we need help, what we are tolerating, how we are treating ourselves and what effect it’s having on our lives…
Gaining a fresh perspective is valuable and you don’t need to travel on an airplane or spend money to do it. Here’s an activity to help.
Find quiet time alone
Close your eyes and take several deep-relaxing breaths
Picture yourself as the main character on a movie screen as you are sitting in the audience watching…
Allow the movie to begin in 2009… and watch as month by month goes by…
What do you see? What happens to the main character? What is she/he doing, thinking, seeing, feeling and telling herself?
Allow yourself time to take it all in…
Then, knowing you can change the movie for this main character for 2010, think about how you will change it. What will happen…. What do you want to happen…
Spend quality time here designing the script and casting characters…
Write it all down and check it periodically through out the year for any editing you may want to do.
I hope you found this helpful. For more activities like this, and a “fresh perspective“ for your life sign up for my newsletter here.
Wishing you Many blessings this year and always, Patricia
