“I know that we notice what we notice because of who we are.
We create ourselves by what we chose to notice.
Once this work of self-authorship has begun,
we inhabit the world we have created. We self-seal.
We don’t notice anything except those things that confirm what we already think about who we already are. When we succeed in moving outside of our normal processes of self-reference and can look upon ourselves with self-awareness, then we have a chance at changing.
We break the seal. We notice something new.”

~ Margaret Wheately

  1. So very true. To allow oneself to step out of our own self, opening our mind to the what if’s, is giving freedom to ourselves to live a full and rewarding life, to gain a better perspective of who we are and why.
