Well! I am bowled-over. Week Two was all about clarification of values. This seemed easy to start with, but proved to be quite an existential challenge, because I had to ask myself, "Who am I and how do I define myself?"
First off, I realised that I habitually spend far too much time asking the question: "Who do other people think I am, and what is their opinion of me?"
Just seeing THAT was worth the effort of working through the course.
"Who I think I am?" might be quite an interesting discussion, but I'm not going to have it here, because it's a fairly fluid concept and may change at any moment. It's what I DO about who I think I am that was the focus of the Bull's Eye exercise. Which you might Google for yourself if you're interested.
Given a while to think about it, I find that one of the least satisfying parts of my life, is my habit of attempting to please other people. In the process of which, I don't always say what I really think, and I don't always do what I really want to do.
I have no radical agenda here. I'm not going to do anything very life-changing. I'm just going to quietly, softly, say what I really think, and tip-toe around doing what seems right to me.
It's an exciting prospect.
Quietly and softly - making a difference by being true to myself:
