While you are in the midst of whatever you may be in the midst of, challenge yourself to take a look at the world through a different lens. Whether your struggle is about infertility or another health/life problem, here are a few suggestions for a new lens:
Maybe one of these words, actions, speak to you. Try them out by saying them each out loud. Which of them appeals to your heart?
These words are presented to you as verbs. They are actions. Put them on, try them out. My uncle wears his beloved’s sunglasses and sees the world through his eyes. What a lovely tribute.
I surround myself with friends who live life in a playful, fun way, so today, I chose laugh.
It spoke to me gently and then drew me back when I finished writing and creating the list.
Which one are you bringing in and letting you find something just a little different?
