Become- What You Believe. That should be fairly simple. right? Of course, That’s only if you KNOW what you believe. We generally walk through the majority of our days with some vague sense of how life works and what we believe about it.
Somewhere along the way we come face to face with a value or belief that we THOUGHT we owned. It stands there sticking it’s little belief tongue out at us taunting us to prove we know how we formed it.
Little Belief Stinkers
I finally saw a whole bunch of these little stinkers hopping around wagging fingers and talking trash at me. Well, I did the only thing I knew would work. Yep! I slapped a bunch of paint on ’em and turned ’em into flowers!
I totally believe you can solve any problem with paint! No way could I keep this fun paint slinging to myself! I knew if I had little beliefs to deal with other people might too!
The “Become-What You Believe Workshop” was born!
Thankfully, there ARE other belief warriors out there interested in paint slinging! And they are super talented as well!! It didn’t take much to get the paint splotching, swooshing and plopping along with a some spattering!
Just Roll Your Eyes
Grabbing a belief can be a bit tricky. Slippery little fellows, ya know. Some of these beliefs are pretty funny when you actually find the source! Others you just roll your eyes and move on. It does make it a whole lot easier when you know you’re not facing cultural, family, scientific mumbo jumbo… beliefs alone. You can consider which beliefs are yours and which were … shall we say.. on loan? Keep the good and fun. The ones that serve ya. Paint the rest outta your picture!
There is no way to harness all your beliefs and examine them at one time. You can begin to slowly uncover them. To sift through the broader beliefs and gain a clarity on who these beliefs are molding you into. Because honestly. You DO BECOME what you BELIEVE. I have an entire Pinterest Board about this very topic. TED Talk videos, research and awesome thoughts! Ya might want to give it a follow!
So… do you KNOW what you believe?
The beautiful souls that participated in the “Become What You Believe Workshop” definitely held on to some lovely beliefs!
Huge thank you to Emily for taking and sharing awesome pics of this workshop!
