It’s remarkable how many of us can articulate the nuances of life. Ask yourself what is the nuance you want to focus on? What does nuance even mean to you?
- A nuance is a small difference in sound, feeling, appearance, or meaning. We can use our eyes and facial expressions to communicate virtually every subtle nuance of emotion there is.
- Characterized by subtle and often appealingly complex qualities, aspects, or distinctions that we expect others to understand. Does this even make that much sense to you? There is a lot to dissect here.
Let’s work on our complex qualities (our traits) a genetically determined characteristic. What genetically determined characteristic of yours that keeps happening?
I’ve often said it’s the German in me that causes me to react a certain way. This my friend is a cop out of an excuse for our behavior. We absolutely can change our behavior but, that is only if we choose to.
Awareness is us knowing that we’ll be able to find it from where its supposed to belong.
For us to belong can mean the following; be in the rightful possession of; or be dominated by (a person) or better yet fit in a specified place or environment.
Dominate is having a commanding influence on or control over a being or a thing.
Control is to exercise restraint or a direct influence over another, regulate, to rule, there are various levels of control.
Going To Extremes When It Comes To A Nuance
I’m one of those that have a problem with things being out of place. There is a place for everything and it must be part of what I call an equation.
Scissors stored in a knife block are for use in the kitchen. Others think they can use these scissors outdoors on various things.
- What’s realistic when it comes to our nuance or another person’s nuance?
- Is this nuance saving us or them time?
Who wants to be around a person with (their) state of mind? Do you know of anyone who likes to be around an individual who is unwilling to factor in others’ opinions? Better yet, do you even have a choice especially, when it comes to being a child?
Depending on how long you have endured parents with the need to control you over their nuance. This nuance will eventually mean that we must learn how to cope in life.
A Convoluted Mess Of A Nuance
Most of us don’t struggle with being too orderly. But, those of us that struggle with being so orderly are predictable. We get so caught up in the rights and wrongs versus finding common ground with others. What is our reasoning for being so orderly?
Rationalizing or just justifying our discomforts in things. An another’s discomfort then becomes our discomfort. All of this leads to unproductive time of us trying to help others feel a certain way because things are not going their way.
We are internalizing, agonizing, and over-appeasing another individual. This is all causing us to burn up valuable energy and we lose precious time and moments with one another over the orderliness of this disorder.
Learning how to put out needless fires is learning how to dowse them accordingly. Stop and think this over for a bit.
Are you losing things often? Are you late for your appointments? Do you procrastinate? How is your promptness? Are you able to locate things in an emergency?
Realistic or Unrealistic Things Of Our Nuance
Life is too busy to add some unrealistic things to the mix. Admit to yourself that you are able to make a slight change here and there.
- Pinpoint a particular area that gets right under your skin. Now right down that realistic or unrealistic thing(s) down.
- It’s time to work on these particular areas you have written down. Once you have written the unrealistic or realistic things down.
- Write a corrective action plan to these particular areas that get right under your skin or others skin.
- Pray for these matters at hand and know they will take time. Are you open to hearing if you are taking the right direction? The direction we should take comes from the Book of the Bible. The book of Proverbs has a vast amount of information on how we should live!
I went past the field of a sluggard, past the vineyard of someone who has no sense; thorns had come up everywhere, the ground was covered with weeds, and the stone wall was in ruins. I applied my heart to what I observed and learned a lesson from what I saw: A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest and poverty will come on you like a thief and scarcity like an armed man.
Loafers say, “It’s dangerous out there! Tigers are prowling the streets!” and then pull the covers back over their heads. Just as a door turns on its hinges, so a lazybones turns back over in bed. A shiftless sluggard puts his fork in the pie, but is lazy to lift it to his mouth. Dreamers fantasize their self-importance; they think they are smarter than a whole college faculty.
We Become Victims And We Rationalize
We see danger, we are concerned, we become victims and we rationalize. Three things, then, to sum this up: When you speak forth God’s truth, speak your heart out. Don’t tell people how they should or shouldn’t pray when they’re praying in tongues that you don’t understand. Be courteous and considerate in everything.
I want you to realize that I continue to work as hard as I know how for you, and also for the Christians over at Laodicea. Not many of you have a met me face-to-face, but that doesn’t make any difference. Know that I’m on your side, right alongside you. You’re not in this alone.
Tapestry Of Love
I want you woven into a tapestry of love, in touch with everything there is to know of God. Then you will have minds confident and at rest, focused on Christ, God’s great mystery. All the richest treasures of wisdom and knowledge are embedded in that mystery and nowhere else. And we’ve been shown the mystery!
All the richest treasures of wisdom and knowledge are embedded in that mystery and nowhere else. And we’ve been shown the mystery! I’m telling you this because I don’t want anyone leading you off on some wild-good chase, after other so-called mysteries, or “the Secret.”
I’m a long way off, true, and you may never lay eyes on me, but believe me, I’m on your side, right beside you. I am delighted to hear of the careful and orderly ways you conduct your affairs, and impressed with the solid substance of your faith in Christ.
My counsel of you is simple and straightforward: Just go ahead with what you’ve been given. You received Christ Jesus, the Master; now live him. You’re deeply rooted in him. You’re well constructed upon him. You know your way around the faith. Now do what you’ve been taught. School’s out; quit studying the subject and start living fit! And let your living spill over into thanksgiving.
Work on a particular area of your nuances each and every week.
