This is the fourth and final part of the series, Beyond The Noise: Respond to Life’s Clutter On YOUR Serene and Creative Frequency series.
In this episode we are drawing things together by identifying some specific simple actions to take in the face of the biggest sources of noise in our lives right now.
Moving Towards and Away
We are driven by a mixture of “towards” and “away-from” motivations in life.
Towards Motivations take us in the direction of the thing or things we want more of.
Away-From Motivations drive us to eliminate things that cause us pain or discomfort.
In this series we’ve identified the sources of noise we want to move away from. But as we’ve been exploring, this is not always enough. We also need to have something positive to move towards.
It’s sometimes hard to know what we want instead. ESPECIALLY when the noise is overwhelming, distracting, and fogging up our vision. So that is what we are doing in this final part of the series.
Vehicles and Controls
I hope this has reminded you that you ARE in the driving seat and there is a lot that you still have control over. Even though there are many things that happen in life which are beyond our control.
There are many things that happen that completely throw us. And there are forces beyond our control that create huge noise and overwhelm at times. We are not trying to escape or hide.
This series has been about finding a foothold of empowerment so we might instead become aware and we can respond to those things.
To use the driving seat metaphor, we get to choose what we do with the controls in front of us. We might pull over into a service station and take a break. We can use the windscreen wipers, change our speed, put on the lights, shift gears, or set the atmospheric conditions. There are many tools and potential choices at our disposal.
