Mark 4:21-22

Instead of trying to be something different why not use your personality to stand out from others? In preparing for a guest speaker program, not all ideas make it to the platform. But as with a couple of events in my husband’s and my life, just because some movie moments make it to the cutting room floor, hardly means they are wasted.

Sometimes, to stand out, you may find you try too hard or go too far. It’s difficult to say in my coaching experiences, how many of those of us more introverted may have claimed something like, “If only I were more extroverted.” That can be extreme.

When you hear the word peace, what comes to mind? Sometimes our minds, introverts and even extroverts,  are filled with so many thoughts we may not be able to hear the most important ones above the noise.

On a global level maybe it’s about ending wars and hatred.

Or if you grew up when I did perhaps you think of flowers and peace symbols.

Ultimately what we each want is personal peace. I don’t understand why more introverts aren’t seemingly taking advantage of the wonderful thought-pacer of mindfulness meditation.  

These past few years I’ve been learning more about meditation, mindfulness, and prayer. In the process of a daily habit of all three practices, I’m letting go of worry and stress and becoming more present and grounded in everyday situations including some of the most inconceivable.

There is research to support some of the benefits of mindfulness meditation. Because many believe there is not enough research, studies continue, including UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center (MARC) which according to their website has a mission: “to foster mindful awareness across the lifespan through education and research to promote well-being and a more compassionate society.”
