The idea of re-framing came up like a broken record in my life yesterday. During multiple conversations with others throughout the day, the idea of re-framing one’s perspective was discussed and dissected at length, and that repetitive pattern itself would be enough to impact me. Interestedly enough, it came up again during my evening at the movie theatre when I was watching the newly released film Hall Pass. In it, one character jokingly rates women’s “hotness” only after “re-framing” them without their attractive or unattractive friends that encircle them. The film, being a comedy, exaggerated upon the re-framing comparison, but it was interesting enough to make me both laugh at the movie and chuckle at the coincidental theme of the day.
My point is this: what perceptions and interpretations do you have that could possibly do for a “re-framing”? I know that personally I found myself re-framing multiple opinions yesterday, constantly challenging myself on my perspective. Being human, I have the tendency to see life from a self-based stand-point; even though I do my best to avoid that self-absorption, it is at times inevitable (for us all), and it is in those times that we need re-framing the most.
Perhaps you need to re-frame your view of yourself, perhaps of the one of you love, perhaps of your family, or perhaps of your life and dreams, whatever it is, take this challenge. You won’t regret it.
