Taking It Home
It is possible for there to be a dance with life, a creative response to its intrinsic limits and challenges... — Sharon Welch
Contemplate the visual response you made to workshop questions about what it means to be a moral person. Share your thoughts, questions, doubts, and challenges with a trusted friend or loved one. Consider making concrete changes in your life that reflect a new perspective on moral action. Possibilities include:
- Seek the perspectives of people whose frame of reference, social location, culture, or values differ from your own.
- Guard against the cynicism and despair born of privilege. Find a partner who will help you recognize cynicism and refocus your thinking.
- Recognize times when your choices are guided by a need to control the outcome of a particular action. Reframe your thinking and instead focus on creating the possibility for future action.
Keep a journal record of the changes you are practicing in your life.
