I had a thought this week: I realized there are so many things that I’d like to learn about myself; shouldn’t we all have a special question – one that causes us to seek a truthful answer. There is nothing more powerful than revelation that unfolds and promotes you to a higher version of yourself. Do you have such a question? I do. My current one pertains to scheduling and time management (in case you wondered) and how to find the best balance for me. Believe me; I’ve had more complicated ones in the past and will again.
I guess this self-focus is really just another way of getting to know the real you. It’s also a good way to get to the bottom of destructive behavior that might be popping up. Don’t be afraid of what’s inside of you. If you avoid it, you will pay a high price in the long run. On the other side of that coin you will find what your good traits and strengths are.
Choosing Appropriate Questions
First, take a look at the primary focus of your life. Is it family, work, or friends; is it God or a place of worship? Whatever you spend the majority of your time doing is likely a good place to find a question that will bring some insight. For example: if you are a mom, and that is your primary responsibility, you could ask yourself what part of you makes you a good mother or is there something you can do to increase your bond with your kids. It doesn’t matter what the question is about as long as it is relative to your life and growth. Keep it positive and uplifting.
How Do I Get It Answered?
You’ll have to work for this one. It’s a process of elimination on your part; in other words, you’ll have to dig into the past and rule out what doesn’t work for you…that stuff you’ve tried and miserably failed at. Ya don’t wanna repeat those things. Got that? Good.
It’s also important to seek the insight of trusted friends and family or that of a personal coach or therapist. You may not like what they tell you, but you won’t know if you don’t speak up. The spiritual realm is a good place to turn for insights about you. God is happy to tell you all about how you’re made. If you’re not connected spiritually; this might be a good opportunity to just calm yourself and start asking questions. I guarantee you will discover something/someone wonderful that has been there all along.
Do some journaling and creative diagramming to get your ideas on paper. That way you can see exactly where you are on each journey to find an answer. And, don’t get discouraged if the answer doesn’t come right away. Sometimes we just have to wait…and wait…and wait some more. Be patient with yourself and keep trying. You are worth every minute of time spent for positive change and self-awareness. It’s a LOVE thing! By the way, Happy Valentine’s Day! I love you all. Be well-be beautiful.
