Good Morning!! Happy Monday!!
Are you ready for a new week? Have you planned your week? Do you know what you are going to be addressing this week?
Here are a few questions for you to consider before you read on – How many times do you think this week you will ASSUME that something is exactly as it appears to you? How often do you think that moments later you will realize it may not be exactly as you thought OR there is more than one layer to what you were observing? How often do you think you will be totally wrong about something and you will have to cancel your initial thoughts and start all over again!!
Have a good look at the photographs below…do you get it? Start reading from the top right hand box and continue to the left hand bottom box….GOT IT?
NOW start reading at the beginning of the bottom left hand box and continue with the top right hand box.
In each instance make sure “BUT” is said between each sentence!! Now look at the photographs again.
No matter which photo you look at first or which sentence/scenario you read first the photos and the meaning give us pause because they make us realize that sometimes we look at a situation and make assumptions based on what is in front of our eyes because at the time that it is our reality. Each photo is of the exact same place seconds apart!!
However, too often we assume and make hasty decisions, instead of maybe waiting a while, watching a while and being sure that we are not in danger of acting prematurely. Yes, there are times when we have to go with our gut, or we have to make split decisions, or we don’t have time to peel back layers. BUT sometimes it’s important as well to step back and see things from a different angle, to see if the landscape changes, or to weigh the different views before us or even take in points of views from another perspective before making a hard and fast decision.
If you have to make an instant decision, make sure it is something you can live with….
Hugs and Butterfly Kisses filled with great opportunities and positive outcomes for the week ahead! Smile each day and make your heart a happy place and be kind with your words so that around you is always a better space…
