Oprah.com ran a piece back in July, Do You Know Your Emotional Blind Spots. I recently came across it, and it really made me think.

You can read it on your own and see what it does for you.

But, I wanted to share my thoughts on what this piece brought up.

It has you ask yourself the following 3 questions:

What am I afraid to know?
What's the one thing I least want to accept?
What do I sense without knowing?

Let's go through them…

What am I afraid to know?

I'd like to believe I am not afraid of knowing anything. But I am. Mostly, I am afraid of waking up one day and feeling like a failure. Yet, I truly believe I am a success. So, is my fear of failure just the story I am telling myself? Yes. Yes, it is. And, in this moment I would say to myself, “be careful of the story you tell yourself, it may come true. So tell yourself a good story!”

What's the one thing I least want to accept?

This question makes me ask myself another question, what am I denying? Hmmmm… that I am imperfect? That the world and all of us are imperfect in our own beautiful way? Maybe. Yes. I always seek perfection. But through meditation I am learning to be easy with myself and just roll with it more. Be easy with your life. Be easy on yourself.

What Do I sense without knowing?

This is a great question, as for me my sense is my strongest suit. I sense good. All
will be good. All is good. Life is good. Close your eyes, shut out the noise, it is all good. You are where you're supposed to be.

So the take away is: Tell yourself a good story about yourself, be easy on yourself and always, ALWAYS know that you are where you're supposed to be.
