Inner Growth Word of the Day: Inconsistent
Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (adj.) 1. lacking consistency. 1 a. not compatible with another fact or claim. 1 b. containing incompatible elements. 1 c. incoherent or illogical in thought or actions. 1 d. not satisfiable by the same set of values for the unknowns.
Inconsistent in a sentence: When you experience a number of inconsistent actions, you start to wonder if there’s a disconnect somewhere.
Inconsistent in action: When you say something but do something else, that is inconsistent.
Inconsistent and inner growth: Whether an inconsistent action or thought or event is at play, taking a deeper look allows for the discovery of areas within you that may need some attention due to something missing or possibly something where two or more things are a part of it. This exploration brings about inner growth since it gets you to evaluate inconsistent events from within and for your inconsistent actions and/or thoughts, to be aware of their multifaceted nature and/or the possible disconnect that is present within you.
Inconsistent and inner growth action steps:
- In-depth self-exploration questions: What do I think about someone inconsistent? What do I think about my inconsistent thoughts, actions, or ways? How has inconsistent thinking affected my life? What types of inconsistent events have I been through? Why have I thought about inconsistent topics before? When was the first time I defined something as inconsistent and why?
- List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with inconsistent at the center and then list or put around it all the other words that come to mind associated with it. Now pick one word that reminds you of two events where inconsistent thinking took place. Write about the two events with the rest of the words from your list and then compare them to see what commonalities and differences the two stories have between them.
- Bring your awareness to your feelings about inconsistent and allow these emotions to go where they like. Notice if they navigate more towards one area of your body or evenly disperse. As you sit in silence, take note of what types of feelings stand out the most and when you’re ready allow thoughts to come in as you hone in on the strongest feeling present. From here let your emotions do the rest of the talking about this particular event.
