The big picture of your life

The big picture of your life.

Posted: 13 Nov 2010 08:17 AM PST

When you find yourself caught in a trap of your own making , remind yourself that whatever it is you are worrying about is only ever part of the big picture of your life.

Look down on your life from the vantage point of an eagle. Think about where you have to come from , what you have already learn-and where you are going. Acknowledge what resources you already have.

Ask yourself gently if you need help and how you will ask for it. Remember tough situations that you have already survived; what you learned; what you gained.

Let yourself see how the situation will look six month from now. Remember some dramas from the past that once loomed large and are now mere pinpoints in your history.

Appreciate the scale and depth of your life’s journey : the complexity of it, the richness of it, the uniqueness of it.

The attention that you give to the details of your life will always be enhanced when you are also able to see and appreciate the more spacious picture of your existence.
