“When I shifted my attention from the change I wanted back to my identity, the change I was seeking just happened.”
This is a powerful insight that a dear friend gave me yesterday.
In the past, when I wanted to change something in my life, I put all my energy and focus on the change I wanted to make.
Too many times, however, I’ve lost myself in the changes I was seeking. I was so focused on changing something in my world that I forgot who I was in that world. When that happened, I find my self lost and disconnected within the same changes I was longing for.
It is only when I shift my focus inward, that I can root my life in who I am and navigate through changes without losing my centre.
While changes can depend on many factors. I’m the only one in the whole universe, who can be me.
