This post is just a bit of everything that came to my mind today!
Lately I have been thinking about coherence and consistency in our lives. About the choices we make, the actions we take, the intentions we put into our behaviors, our attitudes when facing a particular situation and the struggle to strive for what we believe.
I have been thinking about the importance of balancing one's life and keeping a safe distance to material things, while keeping one's feet on the ground. Today I have been thinking how easy it is to hurt others because of our selfish behaviors and how difficult it is to detach ourselves of people who hurt us, when we love them.
Sometimes our own beliefs, convictions and ideas are lived in such a way that they are even threatening to others, and can even unintentionally hurt those who are close to us. In a multicultural world, sometimes our words are misinterpreted, our actions are disapproved and our intentions are misunderstood. How do we then deal with intercultural learning when we are defensive to others' cultures and beliefs? Do we need to be more aware of the "other" out there and of our own boundaries?
Today I have been thinking that what makes one's life journey worth living are the challenges found in each stage and the willingness to deal with the contradictions that the path itself brings about.
Today I feel that I need more patience, more wisdom, more understanding, more humility, and time for myself to reflect about those small things that change my world day by day.
