What Launches Us Forward: The Stable Foundation
Day 31: Understanding the Journey of Perspective
“Perspective is the way we see thing when we look at them from a certain distance and it allows us to appreciate their true value.”
-Rafael E. Pino
If fear, blame, shame, judgment, hate, low self-worth, and lack of presence make an unstable foundation like I talked about in Part I of the 90-Day A Better Me Series, then you might already be able to see how gaining perspective is the path to creating a stable foundation. When we can step back and get a better view of how we contribute to the toxic muck eating away our foundation (awareness), we open ourselves up to the journey of perspective. This journey has the ability to clean up our foundation and make the land that we create our reality on a place we actually want to be. Being on this path means when we are ready to take action, we see what we are doing with more clarity and understanding to how it contributes to the whole.
My friend Sarah once said, “The instructions to get out of the box are on the outside of the box.” When we are going through challenges in life we can feel trapped inside the box. How we get out is perspective. We have to learn to see ourselves, situations, beliefs, and feelings with a little distance. We have to go outside of the box.
The journey of perspective is a doorway we can choose to take. It is a path that opens us up to accept ourselves and others, be open to/for change, see beliefs differently, live in gratitude, take loving action, love unconditionally, and be more present. We took the first step to reach the doorway in Part I: A Journey of Awareness. We can’t get outside of the box until we see the box we’ve created for ourselves.
The most wonderful revelation that comes from taking this journey is realizing the only box that exists is the one we create for ourselves. When we reach this level and actively take on the behavior patterns that come with this understanding. We are actually re-wiring our brains to function better. How AWESOME is that! Instead of our brain working against us, it begins working for us. When you feel the internal shifts beginning to happen, it’s an amazing ride. If you stick with me on this journey and do the work, the transformations that take place will feel like miracles. Doing the work opens you up to see so many signs that you’ve been begging the Universe or your Higher Power (God, Allah, Buddha, Jesus, nature, etc.) to show you.
Seeing signs clearly was a huge deal to me. What I realized was when I didn’t see a sign to do something different, it meant I was exactly where I was supposed to be right now. There are lessons I need from where I am, and when I am supposed to do or be somewhere different— I will be. I’m not saying fears don’t creep in and try to rain on my parade; they do. I let them have power over me sometimes and I suffer for it. The difference is knowing the feeling is temporary and that I have the tools to get myself out of it. I might need the fear in that moment to teach me something and take me a little deeper into what is blocking me. The fear might attract teachers for me to learn from. I choose to look at it in ways that benefit my growth and stability, not break it down. That is how perspective has benefited my life. It still doesn’t always look pretty to the outside world, but the shifts on the inside are my miracles. Knowing I am accountable for my feelings, thoughts, actions, and reactions has given me authentic empowerment that can never be taken away.
