We trip over our blind spots.

Please reflect and share. How does this play out for you?

We all have recurring issues, situations that repeat in a variety of flavors. It can be discouraging. We think we’ve mastered a life lesson only to have it pop up again in a slightly different form.

Because life is all about learning and growing, at the heart of these repeating scenarios is something we’re not seeing clearly, causing the need for variations on the same theme.

There is something we’re blind to in the circumstances, most likely some aspect of ourselves, our thoughts, and our behavior. Because we fail to recognize this trait in ourselves, we keep tripping ourselves up in similar circumstances until we learn to change.

Today’s message advises me that if a scenario seems to keep burping up in my life, I may wish to try to view it from a fresh and different perspective. With a new angle on the situation, I may be able to see past my blind spot and gain deeper understanding. A change in perception can free me from repeating the same lesson over again.

How about you? How do you get past your blind spots?
