What a Gem

Thoughts to Contemplate by Dr. Luann Robinson Hull

Assume You Are an Active Participant


Step 4 in our series called New Year, New View, New Perspective, is a simple, but important one: “Assume You are an Active Participant in What’s Going on.”

Regardless of how you see it, the reality is that you have been invited to the ball, and both of you are “dancing” here. Any issues you face may look as though they are all “him,” but they aren’t. Be clear on your part in getting out of rhythm and discover what you can do to shift it if you aren’t comfortable with the tempo anymore.

Let that sit for a while. Next week we’ll cover the final step in gaining a New View & New Perspective: Watch Your Words.

I look forward to it!

  1. It’s easy to fall into victim thinking and it becomes a comfortable rhythmn.

  2. I’ll never forget how foreign I thought this concept was with my first husband… he was the druggy guy running around abusing his body… what on earth could my part in it all be? Well, once I was gone I realized sticking around was my part. HA! It can be so very subtle, but we do play a part!

  3. You meant everyone except me, right? Everyone plays a part, except for me. I am always innocent. HAHA. I’m just kidding. Great blog as always… xo

  4. Beautiful way to express a common issue. We all want to be right, but it takes two to tango, as they say. 🙂
