November 30

Inner Growth Word of the Day: Significant

 

Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (adj.) 1. having meaning.  2 a. having or likely to have influence or effect.  2 b. probably caused by something other than mere chance.

 

Significant in a sentence: Something significant to one person may not be as significant to another.

 

Significant in action: When a person or things have meaning, have value or are more than just a coincidence; that is significant.

 

Significant and inner growth: Taking a look at everything you find significant in your life brings about inner growth because the reasons behind their importance tell you a lot more about yourself and allow you to make decisions with that knowledge in mind, as well as question your reasons and possibly rethink what significant is to you.

 

Significant and inner growth action steps:

  1. In-depth self-exploration questions: When did I first think about something or someone significant? What feelings do I have when it comes to those significant things in my life?  What are some major takeaways from anything significant in my life or that was significant?  How has my idea of what is significant changed in time?  Who influences my definition of significant?

 

  1. List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with significant at the center and then list or put around it all the words that come to mind associated with it. From this list pick two words and think of one significant person in your life and one significant life experience.  Write about both using the rest of the words from your list and notice what stands out between the two.

 

  1. Bring your awareness to your feelings about anything or anyone significant to you and pay close attention to where your emotions arise, how they travel through your body and/or if they stay in certain areas or maybe don’t really move at all. Now visualize a clam stream of water flowing down a river into the ocean.  As you do this move those feelings along and allow thoughts to come in.  Notice what thoughts come to mind first and how they change as time passes and your emotions change.
