Continuing our conversation regarding blaming, being and believing and how these three words relate to confidence.
I am not a writer by any stretch of the imagination; However, I have always been curious and observant. I enjoy stimulating my thoughts with conversation regarding the human experience and with an open mind, I swim in a sea endless possibilities.
So bear with me as I attempt to share my observations with you.
Let’s talk being.
Being (Philosophical meaning) the inward nature, true substance, or constitution of anything, as opposed to what is accidental, phenomenal, illusory, etc.
When you are connected to your being – you reflect who you truly are – you glow with your essence. There is an air of genuineness and confidence about you.
If you are connected to your being, then it stands to reason, that you will own and claim all of your experiences. Therefore, blaming or self blaming are roads you will not travel.
Children are a great example of “being.”
Here are ten reasons why.
- They tell it like it is from their own perspective. Until they learn from us to do otherwise.
- They accept and love who they are. It is the adults that teach them to dislike one thing or the other about themselves.
- By default they are confident – until the people of influence program them with confidence destroying beliefs.
- Interacting with nature comes naturally and the simple things of life bring joy and happiness.
- Expressions of joy and sadness are uninhibited. We learn to suppress
- Honesty is their policy, learning dishonesty to avoid the dreaded punishment.
- They get intoxicated from the sheer enjoyment of loving their life( my daughter, Talibah, brought this to my attention) she said “mom, little children look like they are drunk when they are playing”
- They intuitively know that we are all connected. Adults teach them otherwise.
- They truly believe all things are possible.
- They are persistent and fearless.
This list could be longer, however, I believe there are enough points here to give credence, based on my reality, that when you are in the zone of “being,” like a child you reflect your essence and blaming or self blaming is not your cup of tea.
Like a child – be confident with being and begin to believe in a life filled with infinite possibilities.
