Image Description: Five post-it notes are placed in a stack, though offset so it looks like they are rotating (from back to front, pink, orange, yellow, and blue). A question mark is on the blue post-it note on top. Public domain image.
There are times when we find ourselves mulling over the very same themes in our thinking.
There are times when we feel weighed down by longstanding frustrations that rarely seem to shift.
There are times when it feels like things are stagnant or unmoving.
So. . . What if we ask a different question?
This is something that a friend of mine says often, and I really appreciate it.
What if we do that? What if we ask a new question? Could that open up new possibilities – creative pathways or new angles of relating?
Maybe that seems like a small thing, but it’s actually a large thing. Frameworks affect how we view situations, feel, and express hope.
So what if we try it? Might it open up something different?
