As a child, you were like a sponge, absorbing ideas and beliefs from your parents, teachers, religious leaders — even from the books you read and the TV shows you watched. You made these beliefs your own, but most likely, you never really evaluated them; you just accepted them as being true.
This week, try this experiment. Close your eyes, and take yourself back in time. You’re now a young child, but with all the wisdom that you currently have. What is going on around you? What are you experiencing? How are today’s interpretations different from when you were younger?
