Life Framing is…
Life Framing is taking a step back and realizing you can look at every situation in your life from various lens sizes, from wide to medium to tight lens positions (angles of view). These different ways of framing the situation provide different views and do two extremely important things: one, present the situation differently so new, creative solutions present themselves, and, two, by presenting it at various levels it ensures we develop a solution that is congruent with each level of our life or organization, including our highest priorities.
Life Framing means reexamining a difficult situation, or our life in general, from multiple directions and from multiple distances. For example, we have at least three leading roles to play in the control of our life story; script writer, director and lead actor. See past and future blog posts for more on these three leading roles.
Life Framing is a perspective or a frame of mind. It says I will keep my whole life in perspective; I will not let the little things upset me; I will change the things I can with wisdom and courage; I will strive to have a balanced life full of love and relationships, something spiritual, good health, challenging and meaningful work; and I will strive for self-actualization not just for my sake but also for the sake of all of those people I hold dear in my life.
Life Framing is a call to action. Challenge yourself. Change where you must. And join in our community as we begin to “Frame Our Lives Differently”.
