“In some small way, somewhere, somehow we are creating a stir.” #bgdtcoaching.
Creating a stir could be read from various perspectives. For now, let’s look at two.
Firstly, we might like to consider the idea of creating a stir by the positive contribution we can offer to those around us. I’m focusing on the positive as I am sure some have already highlighted, or at least underlined, our occasional negative impact – in their opinion of course.
We are creating a stir when we spend quality time with others. Even if we are all ‘Oh so busy’, taking time to let people be themselves is a way of acknowledging their presence in our life. And let’s not forget how kindness spreads through a smile, especially when a frown is expected from us.
The second perspective concerning creating a stir relates to changing the status quo of our life. There are few reasons for us not to drink a coffee in a different location occasionally, for example. Choosing to walk rather than jump automatically into the car is likewise an opportunity for us to embrace new aspects of life.
Believing life is a static concept offering us little scope for personal input is a choice we have. On the other hand, by pushing ourselves just a little bit beyond this thinking we are able to live life fully. At such times it is fair to think in some small way, somewhere, somehow we are creating a stir.
So, two perspectives, perhaps creating a stir in you. To share your input on the issue of creating a stir, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment below.
