We use our brain every day. We go to work or school, do our daily routines, tackle small obstacles, operate heavy machinery (our car), and we observe and make judgements.
What if we didn’t just go through the motions everyday and simply used our MIND to understand the bigger picture of life? What if we didn’t think of the (sometimes negative) little thoughts that occupy our minds that affect our relationships, our daily activity, our bodies and our outlook on life?
What if we thought “bigger picture”. What is the “bigger picture”? I don’t know, but I don’t think it consists of us obsessing about our credit, what a person thought of us, that last 10, 20, 30 lbs we need to lose, whether or not the neighbor raked their leaves this weekend, etc.
These are my thoughts on bigger picture and our life’s purpose:
-We are here to learn particular life lessons (more on how I feel about this in later posts)
-To help one another though our journeys (we are all going through life together, let’s help one another out by encouraging and supporting one another)
-To treat people with kindness and respect
-To let others know they are loved by you
-To raise small minds to be as creative and expressive as possible
-To teach small children to love well (by loving them well and unconditionally)
-To inspire greatness in others
-To know that when we are doing something with our BEST INTENTIONS, our hearts will be bursting at the seams with love, pride and absolute joy.
This is possible. I know it is. We just need to trust ourselves and use our minds to look at the bigger picture. Let’s stop thinking of the petty stuff and start thinking about the important stuff.
How do we do this? This is the journey that we are on. We will figure this out together, but I do know it’s out there.
Feel free to share your thoughts on what the “bigger picture” means to you.
