I had the delightful experience of engaging in a conversation regarding feedback for this blog with a lovely individual recently. I say delightful because this human expressed a warm genuineness that left me feeling good-humored and energized. A piece of feedback included the addition of adding tid-bits to the blog, as I have been hyper-focused on the tangents.
So, without further ado…
Movie Metaphors: Part 1
My husband and I enjoyed the quirky new movie, Love and Monsters, one chilly evening. While this is not any sort of movie promotion, I highly recommend you delight yourself by watching it, for it illustrates a few human nuances we try so dutifully to ignore. Without giving the storyline away, there was a clairvoyant theme highlighting the magic that compassion embodies that can nurture others propensity for courage. I am a firm believer we all have courage within us. However, this courage can be dampened by the quick judgements based on outside perceptions or our own battles with impatience. The more this raw courage is faced with assumptions from ourselves or our environments, the more this light is dimmed.
You see, our worlds cannot grow without looking in the eyes of our monsters, for this is when we bear witness to our own courage and make our own choices of how we want to embrace it.
Whenever you experience your courage falter, sit with the discomfort and genuinely explore what fuels this unconfident narrative. Is it the quick judgements from others? Or is it the battle with impatience within yourself?
