What You See is What You Believe, Before You Have Looked

June 24 Mantra Pic
I have been quite obsessed with podcasts lately. I spend a lot of my work hours alone and somehow podcasts make me feel connected to the world outside. Of course, I love travel podcasts and during a Rick Steves Podcast regarding the Discovery of the Andes Mountains, Author, Kim MacQuarrie said these words that stuck in my brain and deeply resonated with me. He was discussing Charles Darwin’s discovery of the Galapagos and how it took him some time and internal convincing to see what was in front of him, which eventually led to his theory of evolution.

How often are we blinded by filters that skew our judgements, our beliefs and our actions? Often, the truth and reality are in front of us, but we fail to see it. This week, dig deep and notice where your lenses shift your habits, words and thoughts. Determine if you need to exchange, upgrade or even remove those lenses completely.

This week’s mantra are Kim MacQuarrie’s words that will hopefully allow you some behavioral shifts and some mental clarity.
