The Power of Me…

Ever wonder what you are spending your life doing? I certainly do...

I got to thinking about this blog and started analyzing what I spent most of my DEW View time writing about.

Wordle did the actual magic in creating these word maps and I was struck by how each map gave me a different perspective even though the content is the same across each.

The same words create different meaning based on a different perspective...

Do you buy it? Can our perspective change the meaning of life's content?

I think it can...

Not to long ago I was handed a card that I keep in my wallet to help keep my head "in the right place". Here is what is written on the card:

I am the Decisive Element

I have come the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather.

I possess tremendous power to make a life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture, or an instrument of inspiration.

I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.

In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated, and a person humanized or dehumanized.

If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.

- Goethe -

We each have the power to be better and better those around us. It's called the "power of me"!

You have it and so do I.
