Our challenge this week is to remix one our fellow writers post. One title post that stuck out to me for this challenge was Malinda Gwyn’s Funkadelic Friday: Getting My Mind Right. In this post, Malinda spoke about how she uses music to prepare her mind for her work day. I found this post intriguing because I was speaking to my friend the other day how I need to take a moment to myself and get my mind right. Often times we find ourselves in situations where you have people information overload. While knowing your peers is a good thing, knowing too much can cloud your judgement and perspective. That is the head space that I am in right now. I need to take a moment to un-cloud my lens. I need to take a moment to clear my mind. I need to clear my mind so I can create my opinions about people. One thing I want to ensure is I form my opinions about people based off my personal interactions. I cannot allow other people’s interactions to shape my thoughts.
It is so important that one stays center and focused when building new relationships with people. We have to be a clean slate in order to form solid opinions. So I have to take a moment to clear my mind. To find a moment to quiet all the chatter and listen to that still voice that will lead me in the right direction. In nutshell I need to work on my discernment.
