Subtle Nudges


Sometimes I hear or read something that instantly resonates with me. When this happens I re-read or listen to it numerous times to wrap my brain around its deeper meaning. Oftentimes, it is a thought provoking message that has to do with exactly what I am dealing with at the time. I feel this to be a gentle nudge that says “this is important, pay attention!” This is one of those:


“Your mind is your instrument. Learn to be its master and not its slave”, by Remez Sasson


For me, the above message is significant. It says that I can choose be a slave to my mind by thinking negative thoughts, obsessing over that which I have no control and having expectations of others and myself. All of which are happiness diminishing practices.


My other option is to be my minds master. I can achieve this by intentionally changing how I perceive what is going for me at that time. I can choose to look at it as an opportunity to learn and grow. For instance, I can think of ways to improve my situation or myself as opposed to, why is this happening to me? Or, what is this situation trying to teach me?


Once I absorb the information it’s almost as if my minds reset button is pressed and I notice a shift in my thinking, then I am able to see things from a new or different perspective.


I’m learning to pay close attention to the subtle nudges as they generally provide me with some pretty powerful lessons. Can you think of a time you felt nudged?
