We all like to complain. We complain about big things and we complain about small things. But do we ever try to work out a solution to what's "bugging" us? Not very often. There's a joke that goes. "Why are frogs happy all the time? Because we eat whatever bugs us."
That would be great, if it were true. I can say from personal experience, that it's not. I write quite often about thinking mindfully...thinking about how our actions impact others. There's more to than just that, thoughever. And it starts with your heart. Yep. Every great action begins there. You get a feeling about something; something resonnates within you. You get a calling to make something better. That "gut" feeling you get is really is your heart speaking to you. Once you've received the message, then it moves into your head as an idea. The idea solidies and turns into a possibility. This is where it really starts to get exciting! You come up with a dazzling array of potential solutions, and the challenge becomes how to determine which ones will work and which ones won't. You talk to others, perhaps leaders in the field, or you do actual experiments, prototyping, to see how your idea translates into reality. Eventually, that idea, which has moved from the heart to the mind, now finally moves into the hand, where it becomes doing, or action. If we want to make things better, we need to shift from being complainers to being problem-solvers. And we do this by linking our heart, mind, and flippers (I mean hands) together. Open heart. Open mind. Open will.
One small change in thought can bring beautiful and, often, unexpected results. Why not try it out on something that bugging you?
