Like a thermostat responding to environmental conditions, living life by skimming its surface will not help you become the best version of yourself and create the life you want. Unless, of course, skimming without really ever tasting the fullness of life is your conscious intention.
Part of creating the life you want includes focused learning by mining the nuggets buried within each and every life experience.
Living life from the perspective of skimming will, at best, allow only a state of reaction to your often embedded and unexplored perceptions about the world.
However, by mining the nuggets you allow yourself the opportunity to continually reframe your relationship to yourself and others. Furthermore, you will begin to make sense of what is working and not working in experiencing your life fully.
Simply put, living a conscious, focused life in which you view and review your currently held assumptions will help you re-form your patterns of feeling, thinking and doing. This will enable you to create the life you truly desire.
So, be sure to wipe your feet after you clean the hearth; you missed a spot there, be careful not to dip your shoulders so low you spill the water – mine the nuggets.
