This week in Walking In This World it was about Discovering a Sense of Discernment. Unmasking our villains and naming our supporters more accurately. Questioning people’s agenda’s and motives, and also delving more deeply into factual qualifications. Asking for facts, and making decisions on facts. It was a great activity to do through the journaling process, and I did have some lightbulb moments of insight. One thing I did learn that it is ok to be vulnerable and even influenced by people who don’t serve me, however when I realise this person is being more destructive than supportive, I can change that. I can say enough is enough and cut myself off from that relationship or association. Sometimes it is not just the people it is also the projects and activities we are involved in that are not really serving us. A statement that stood out to me was, “we must learn what and how-pull the plug on people and ventures that do not serve our authentic goals and aspirations.” Julia Cameron.
Blurrrrrr, fell in a heap this week. Project day went ahead on Thursday, and I focused on completing my photography course and doing some photo taking practice. Thankfully I could combine that with a nature walk, so it turned out to be an awesome day. The photography course really got me thinking about what story I want to be telling with my photo’s. I don’t have a real camera, I am simply playing with an iPhone. Starting at where I am at with what I have.
What mattered to me this week was attending to my family, and family events, and also to my volunteer work. My journalling reveal my deep connection to those events. Whilst I did not delve as deeply as I would have liked into this chapter, I feel I did learn and experience something from it. It is easy for me to be disappointed about not achieving all the things on my to do list. However now I am thinking it was because they were not the things that mattered the most to me that week.
Journal prompt: What are five areas in your life right now where you feel a sense of haste and pressure? How could you slow down and let things naturally unfold?
Journals are a wonderful place to trouble shoot and come up with solutions to problems.
Do you have a book that you could engage with, journal about and even apply parts to your own everyday life?
Wishing you all a wonderful day!
