Day 161- Living "Character/Personality"

This is part of the series “Living Words"
Awhile ago I was writing a series on different characters/personalities I have noticed about myself in relation to the mind coming forward. Thus, starting to act a certain way depending on a situation and letting the character/personality define who I am in the situation or even the other way around- letting the situation define who I am and the character/personality that I have allowed to exist within me to become me.
So how can I look at character in a different perspective?

Some ways to sound out the word character/personality:


Redefinition: Character/Personality: A role I choose to play/be/”wear” in relation to my environment/situation, knowing that the character/personality does not define who I am but rather it is self expressed with self awareness. A question in relation to this would be: “Am I moving myself? OR “Is the character/personality moving me and defining what I do? So i think of it as a "clothing" that I can chose to put on in relation to an environment or situation- thus the "clothing" does not define me but I can express myself with the clothing. 

Day 160- Living "Trust"

This is part of the series “Living Words"
Trust is a tricky word to redefine because it can be seen in many ways. Such as trusting others, trusting oneself, establishing trust with someone else or with self. When living trust through the mind it comes with emotional/experience attachments especially if people were let down many times or don't trust themselves to accomplish things. So an immediate response for an emotional attachment to trust is “disappointment”. So when looking at trust today I will redefine it to have one starting point and not carry the emotional attachments.

Some ways to sound out the word trust:
-thrust (as in pushing someone really hard)

Redefinition: Self Trust: Self Trust develops/emerges as one develops their self awareness and common sense through accepting a process of setting up principles for oneself that prove to be reliable thus they are trust worthy- which means that I trust myself to move within my physical in relation to whatever comes up because I will know I have walked a process of building trust within myself in relation to the given situation or person.


Day 159- Living "Friendship"

This is part of the series “Living Words"
Friendship has changed a lot during my years. When I was younger it used to be about connecting to others based on similar interests. I think that is how I formed friendships. Many of those friendships fell apart as we grew older and our interests changed. So this right here should be an indication that friendships were not built based on connecting with human beings but rather what those human beings had to share in similarity to me. Thus obviously I want to live the word friendship by building a connection with other human beings through sharing each other in many dimensions and aspects of my life and not only similarities/experiences that I go through.

Some ways to sound out friendship:

-friend-ship (a ship for a bonding)
-fry-end-ship (fry the ending of a ship)

Redefinition: Friendship: Building a connection with another being/human being in mutual respect and sharing who I am on a being level in a multidimensional ways/aspects. For example, that may include aspects of work,  home living,  environment, relatable process walking and so on. As such when one dimension of the friendship shifts or changes- more dimensions are left to the bonding/connection of the friendship. Furthermore it is about creating new connections within the friendship as the friendship develops/expands over time- this not leaving room for the friendship to fall apart.

Day 158- Living "Pleasing"

This is part of the series “Living Words"
Sometime ago I wrote a blog about my "pleasing hidden personality". Here I am going to expand on that personality and redefine the word "pleasing" for myself so that I can live it in a supportive way.

My general experience of pleasing another has been with the expectation of something in return, or it has been about proving to another that “I care”, thus at times I would compromise myself/position/standing in order to please others.

Ways to sound out pleasing:
-please (as in beg)

Redefinition of Pleasing: An act/expression of creating something enjoyable with the starting point of self enjoyment and consideration of the other being without expecting something in return. Pleasing can also be about myself and giving self. Pleasing is giving with consideration.
