Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. Recently, while speaking with a friend she suggested that I share some thing with you that I shared with her. Some times I lose my bearings, my focus and my center. When I find myself in this space I use this tool.
At times I lose my bearings, my focus and my center and I feel as though I have lost my way.
As we spoke I shared with my friend that I have a built in forgetter. Consequently, I need to be reminded of the principles that help me find my center, my bearings and my focus. I do not know if my built in “forgetter” is the result of getting older, being caught in the head lights Are You Caught in the Headlights of Life? or because of my traumatic brain injury.
In the final analysis I do not know if the “why” really matters. What matter is that I am willing to remember.
I have discovered that because I want to remember I am open to being reminded. In my experience I have found that these reminders come in different forms and through various venues. Simplicity some times speaks the loudest when I sit down with a piece of paper and a pen.
Sometimes all I need to do is to sit down with a piece of paper and a pen and begin to write.
The clarity that once seemed to allude me manifests itself before my very eyes. Slowly I am able to see my experience in a different light. What was once skewed takes on new meaning. My heart speaks to my head and my head to my heart and I am revived.
Through the process I hear the voice of hope — as she calls to me — and I am able remember what I forgot.
My friend, in the event that you are going through a difficult time in your life or if you are merely searching for clarity may I encourage you to be present for yourself.
Sit down with a pen and a piece of paper and begin to write.
Let your heart speak to your head and your head to your heart.
What was forgotten will come into focus.
Consequently, you will gain your bearings and you will find your center.
You will be ushered into the light of hope and you will remember what was forgotten.
