The title alone invokes a myriad of thoughts and
emotions. Some will rejoice in it. Others will feel lost without anything on
it. Some will want to draw all over it
anew. And others still will want to
immediately fill it up with only the familiar so there is no void.
We all have one. And depending on
our perspective, we can look at it through different eyes and with different
ideas, feelings and plans.
What if you were diagnosed with cancer, and suddenly
given a blank, clean slate and clean bill of health, being told you were in
remission and now could do anything you wanted?
What if your blank slate was a second chance at
correcting and righting a wrong?
What if your blank slate was real-life opportunity
and you could have the awareness that you can fix any dysfunctional
relationship in your life you had with your parents, your family, your friends
or co-workers and how you relate to one another?
What if you had a blank slate of total sobriety,
clean and free of drugs, alcohol and other vices to change your life in a
healthy way for the better?
What if you lost all your material possessions in a
massive tornado and storm, but you were still left with the gift of life?
What if your blank slate was a wake-up call to
recognizing ways you could improve your mind set, shift perspective in how you
approach your life?
What would YOU do with your blank slate? Do you know?
Do you realize that all the petty things people
complain about daily can all be fixed if you choose to make the shift both
literally, consciously, pro-actively and do something different, be better than
you are in this moment by not being consumed by things that are a waste of your
time, your heart, your energy, your focus, your efforts and instead invest them
in a positive way toward such a shift?
Here at We Solved It - we are solution-oriented. We want to constantly think with the
problem-solving frame of mind no matter what the topic is. But we realized that whether it is something
wrong with your car, or something wrong with a door hinge at your home, or if
it is a problem at work or if it is a problem with your cell phone --- much
like anything in life, things can be fixed.
And so can our relationships with situations, problems and sometimes
even people, it just requires communication.
When people feel 'broken' - it has much to do with
the way they look at life. While
shifting life perspective is not easy, it can be done. Even if it means that you have to have the
courage to eliminate the toxic energy that doesn't align with who you are, who
you are becoming and where you are going with this new slate. The situation is not always personal when we
have to cut strings. But is a human
instinct to be nostalgic and hold on tightly to things that are merely memories
and it is only the memories which fortify us, not the current situation which
may have changed direction. Some people
feel this way with jobs or where they live or even with friendships.
What most people fail to do, is realize that
sometimes it is not just EXTERIOR….sometimes we need to release and let go of
the INTERIOR and that means comfortable
programming, lies we tell ourselves and how we justify what we do and how we
behave or respond or react. This is a
reality check. If the old behavior you
have and your ideals and personal structure isn’t working for you – you are
unhappy. If you release your own
negativity and baggage and work internally on how you think and what you believe
to be the causes of the root of all your problems, sometimes the true answer is
being honest with your true self. Most
people shy away or get defensive about this because it is confrontational. The more they deny there is something wrong,
it becomes glaringly obvious that there really is something wrong they don’t
want to look at.
Sometimes it is necessary to break free from a cage
in order to fly. And that cage sometimes
is the weight of situations which no longer match who we are now. But it is erasing and eliminating the fear of
change that enables us to embrace change and shift and grow.
It is human to fill your 'voids' with 'things'...
and that isn't just substances or material items, it can also be in regard to
getting swept up into drama - beit everyone else's or your own.
Life is short.
And while there may not seem like enough hours in the day to fix or
solve all problems with the world, the ones that we are able to solve, fix,
resolve are ones that we all can take on ourselves to tackle and approach with
a solution-oriented frame of mind in all things and in all situations.
You can. You
can do it. But it’s up to you. And no one is going to help you. You need to make the conscious choice for
yourself to want to have the blank slate that you can begin anew again with and
make continuous efforts to no longer point fingers of blame at everyone else
for the daily choices you make for your slate.
The time is now. It is up to you. And change can happen, but it begins with
each of us.
