Inner Growth Word of the Day: Discussion
Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (n.) 1. consideration of a question in open and usually informal debate.
Discussion in a sentence: A discussion can open up an entirely new perspective that would’ve never crossed your mind had it not been for the discussion that took place.
Discussion in action: When you openly talk about something in a debate format, that is a discussion.
Discussion and inner growth: Exploring your discussions, the ones you initiate and/or take part it, the feelings you get throughout, and what you learn from them are all ways you can pursue inner growth thanks to the discussions that took place.
Discussion and inner growth action steps:
- In-depth self-exploration questions: How do I react to a discussion? When do I initiate discussions and why? What is the importance of a discussion to me? What matters most when I’m in a discussion? What have I learned about life thanks to discussions I’ve had? How have my discussions affected my relationships? What key takeaways come to mind when I think of some of the most important discussions I’ve had?
- List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with discussion at the center and then list or put around it all the words that come to mind associated with it. From this list think of a discussion that made a huge impact in your life and write about it using the words from your list.
- Bring your awareness to your feelings about discussion overall and notice what initial emotions come by. Pay attention to the natural flow of your emotions, do they change as you start thinking about discussions. Then silence your mind and focus on the energy or vibrations you feel (for example, is there tugging near your heart or maybe a slight weight on your chest, and so on). Identify these emotions and then visualize a river, flowing smoothly, and those emotions flowing along with it.
