“The lake was silent for some time. Finally, it said:
"I weep for Narcissus, but I never noticed that Narcissus was beautiful. I weep because, each time he knelt beside my banks, I could see, in the depths of his eyes, my own beauty reflected.””
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
Day 7 of #rebels_united#rebelsunitedfeb2018potd Theme: Negative Space
I haven’t talked about my #cultivatewhatmatters#powersheets recently. I’m still working through them and I hope to begin cultivating my goals soon. This journal/planner asks wonderful questions to help uncover what matters to me. One thing I don’t recall ever doing was thinking about what “worked” and what “didn’t work” for me in the last twelve months and what I learned from those experiences. I realized that others who truly know me can see me better than I see myself, both my dignity and depravity. They help me know myself. I cannot know myself without another person knowing me. Another lesson I learned is that “trying harder” can sometimes just keep me stuck, especially when all I’m trying harder on is what isn’t working for me.
