Ever feel like you need to get something off your chest? Sometimes I’ve just gotta talk it out. That’s why I’ve decided to do a monthly feature called “Thoughts On…” At the beginning of the month, I’ll provide a prompt to stimulate discussion. The point is to get us to put our thoughts out there – writing it all down can be quite cathartic. If you want to keep your writing private, that’s your thing and I won’t question it. If you’re ready to put it all out there, I invite you to share your thoughts in the comments. At the end of the month I’ll provide my own thoughts on the topic of the month. Think of it as a book club for writing.
In this first installment of the “Thoughts On…” column, I’d like to think about duality. I’m not an astrology nut, but I admit some of the Gemini characteristics do resonate with me. One such trait is that Geminis tend to be multi sided. They easily adapt to situations and can see both sides of an argument. I’ve always thought this to be a positive thing. It means I’m not too stubborn to see and appreciate a different perspective. That’s good, right?! Well recently, Albert mentioned that it can be frustrating how I don’t always take a stand and it got me thinking…
- Do you struggle taking a stand or are you too opinionated about some topics?
- When is the right time to put your foot down?
- What’s your sign? Do you fit the description?
Check back at the end of the month to see what I think about my dual nature!
