I have been told to take the cute pictures of the children and pets down, it’s too emotional. And emotion can blur the ability to see and execute with great accuracy. I can see that.
I keep the pictures of family members up because they remind me that decisions we all make affect more than what is right in front of us. When we are so focused on one thing we lose the concept of inter-being and the truth that we are all, and everything we do is, deeply connected. We must consider that our actions and words have an effect, often lasting. We must hold ourselves accountable. This is a way of living, thinking and acting mindfully. And that will keep us all on task with accuracy and compassion.
So the cuties stay.
