In a recent CODE Model Coaching™ session with a young woman seeking to redesign her life, we got into an exploration of what it takes to do just that. We concluded that the start point is to redefine yourSelf!
With that in mind, I share with you the article (below) on Living Life With an Edge. Our edges make us visible – to ourselves and others – and therein lies the double-edged sword: how to be seen to get what we what we want while avoiding being seen to be accountable for what we create.
May it cause you to pause… and reconsider… the edges that define the truth of who you know yourSelf to be.Louise LeBrun
Living Life with an Edge
It is our edges that define us. Without edges, we would not be recognizable as different or distinct from our environments. Without edges, we would blend in to our surroundings … disappear … become part of something else and no longer be who we are.
It is the edges of things … a picture, an apple, a car … that allow things to be separate, one thing from another; that allow for individuation. Without edges, there is only one thing, with all else having been subsumed by that mass.
It is also the edges of things that cause them to stand alone. It is the edges that say this is one, and this is another. It is the edges that allow us to stand out in a pack; to be seen as NOT something else, even if seen as part of a larger whole.
Have you lost your edge? Are you drifting – undistinguishable – in a sea of the undistinguished? Are you disappearing?”
