Post from my other blog.

GiantLeap-2Hello my fellow fellows. I’m pretty sure I say this in every post, but It’s been awhile since I’ve written anything and it’s about time I got back with the program. I read and read, watch videos, peruse blogs and websites, but I still get left with that feeling of lack in my personal development and the development of my life.

I’ve been trying to do what everyone else says or thinks I should do for so long, but using my voice to think it was me who was saying it. I wasn’t truly doing what I wanted to do and I wasn’t allowing myself to feel the way I should.. There comes a certain time when you need to really take what you’ve learned and apply it to your life. You may have a “life high” for a bit after reading a good personal development book, but how long…

When we think of ignorance or ignorant people, how much of it is really our own ignorance? I know I find myself getting frustrated with people from time to time, ok maybe a bit more than that.. But what I have come to find is that ignorance is mainly a lack of understanding, or simply choosing not to understand. It’s a lack of awareness. We can sit here all day and point fingers at who’s ignorant and who isn’t, but most of the time it’s not just someone else who’s ignorant, it’s you as well.

Sometimes when I look back on my life I would think, what a dumbass you were, how could you have possibly thought that, what on earth would propel you to do such a thing! Each day I grow, each day I learn more, I experience different things, meet new people, form different views, all in all expand as an individual. So when I look back I wouldn’t say I was completely ignorant, I would lean more towards saying I had a lack of understanding, because let’s get real here, that does sound a lot better.

Instead of wandering around bumping into people, pointing fingers, sometimes the middle one, just learn to accept things they way they are. Accept people and their lack of understanding, instead of keeping everything bottled up and having hypothetical arguments with them in your head. Instead try to see things from their point of view and try to learn from them or their mistakes. Because you never know, you just might be the one who has the lack of understanding.

Thanks for reading!
