When I leave the house, I never plan for different weather. Even if I know the weather is supposed to change according to a report I rarely can imagine anything different than what I see outside.
I know it is the same in other areas of my life. There’s a bigger picture and things will change, but I get stuck in the initial vision that I see.
Friends, coaches, and therapists, as well as ourselves from the past through journaling, are all useful resources to allow us to see the bigger picture and to help us navigate the future.
