Have you thought about what picture you tend to look at if you face a problem, struggle or meet resistance in life?
Are you one who usually look at the small pieces, details and close-ups to find fault?
Or do you see a greater view, the wider horizon and how it all comes together in the long run?
My experience is that some of us look for details, search for faults and problems without trying to see the greater picture: how it all comes together.
How would a greater view effect our conclusions and decisions about a person, a relationship or a situation instead of judging it from the past hour, day or week?
Could looking at it from a broader horizon help us be a bit more patient with ourselves and others? Maybe. Probably.
Sometimes if I think I am stuck, or I belive that there are only tiny pieces, not a large puzzle, it really helps to try and lift my head up or step up on a chair (or climb a hill) just to get another view – both another view of the thing in particular but also on my small thinking or what I believe my struggles are.
This also works as a mental excercise when stuck – take a mental step back, or remind yourself of a longer time perspective and see what possibilities that opens up for you.
Maybe a friend, collegue or someone in your family can help you see a bigger picture if you find yourself totally stuck.
