So in the happenings of the Holiday season so far, I let this past week lapse without giving you my blog. In lieu of that, you will now get the remaining two Cs this week, one today, and the other on Wednesday. It's time we dive into my favorite of the 5Cs... Conscious.
The definition of conscious is awareness of and response to one's surroundings; awake. This is my favorite of the 5Cs, because it is important that we are always aware of what is going on in and around our lives, and be able to respond to that awareness appropriately. Knowledge of self is one of the most important things we can achieve in life.
One of the best ways we can achieve knowledge of self is to be present in the events, challenges, experiences, and happenings of life. Avoid getting into a habit of putting your feelings and emotions to the side. Acknowledge said feelings and emotions and figure out the best way to heal. There may be times where we have to compartmentalize to avoid being stuck, but that does not mean ignore.
Once you develop a consciousness of who you are and the way things effect/affect you, the navigation through life becomes clearer. Now, this doesn't mean it will always be easy. You still have to navigate, and sometimes that may mean a re-route. When you acknowledge that you are conscious, you gain some clarity.
One of the best decisions you can make today, is to begin the process of knowing yourself more. Take inventory of the things that matter most to you. Pay attention to your emotions, your feelings, your desires, and your reactions. Acknowledgement of this discovery, can be the driving force of your life.
Now you are capable, competent, confident, and you have added conscious. Wednesday we dive into our final C... Courageous. As always, remember that God loves you, and so do I. Love Life, Live Love, Peace Together, Not Apart.
