The definition of discerning is to exhibit keen insight and good judgment. When I’m feeling over emotional or confused about an event in my life, instead of immediately reacting I try to remember to stand back and give the situation time to unfold. I use the downtime as an information gathering exercise to gain more perspective about the issue…more of a mountaintop panoramic view. A word like discernment, when practiced, can help me to approach life with an inner calm and grace. Hanging my heart on the wall reminds me to relax not react…and to go make more art!!!
