Soul Musings/Day 21: Where Is The Focus?
Posted by Gaye Abbott
We all have physical challenges from time to time, like my recent knee injury. This is part of life and certainly arises out of the uncertainty of it all.
Yet, I was hit by the fact that where we focus is a key to seeing how we view life as a whole. Opportunities and possibilities within the continuum or ultimate continual challenges?
For example I caught myself frustrated with the active things I could not do and forgot to be grateful for the fact that I have legs.
There were actually many things I could have been doing to focus on stability for the knee, yet my thoughts were taken up with the inconvenience and discomfort.
The video below is a reminder that embracing what life brings us is not only more effective, but births our fullest expressions from what can be seen as tragedy.
How we perceive our challenges and where we place our focus makes all the difference.
Inspiring New Possibilities, Living From the Soul of Life While Co-creating Well Being of Body, Being, Heart and Planet….One Breath At A Time
Soul Musings is a 31-day practice for the month of December immersed in deep listening to what is emerging and unfolding day by day. Eight sentences with occasional resources to explore more deeply.
Each post, invited by Soul, allows the words to emerge unscathed from prior planning, editing, or censorship. Dwelling in uncertainty and dipping a toe into mystery this union of words is an attempt to resonate within an innate way of Being…. returning “home”.
