Is there someone in your life that you haven’t spoken to in awhile- after having a silly disagreement?
Maybe it was an argument years ago- nobody eve n remembers what it was about, you just know you’re angry about it and so-and-so never should have said or done what they did.
But still it goes on- you never call this person anymore. You never stop to visit them or drop them a line. You miss them- and sometimes you think that you should reach out. You want to…but then you don’t. “Let them call me,” you say to yourself. And then you go on feeling bad.
Today- right now-this is it- your sign. Yes, I’m talking to you. Call that person today. Make amends. Life is too short. You’ll be happy you did.
Let it drift away- all that stuff from your past that you carry around with you- stuff that us not helping you now but only hurting you. You know the things I mean- things that happened years ago involving people who either forgot all about it or may not even be on this plane of existence anymore. But it’s stuff you keep playing over and over again in your head and each time you relive it it’s like the first time, with all the hurt and pain fresh, ripping open old wounds. And why really?Is it helping you feel good bout yourself and your world so you can move forward? Is it giving you the confidence to close that sale or make that presentation or ask your boss for a raise? Does it make you feel great to keep going over it? I don’t think so and be honest- you don’t either.
So now, in the theater of your mind, scoop it up and place it gently on the waves and let it float out to sea where hopefully it will drift out into the major shipping lanes and be run over; And then you know you’ve seen the last of it
Keep it in perspective- things that happen in your life. In other words- don’t sweat the small stuff.
So many times, we can take a minor inconvenience like running out of milk or maybe even a flat tire and blow it up out of proportion. It’s the end of the world to us- and we tell ourselves things like that too- until we’ve worked ourselves up into a frenzy.
And then after it’s done we finally calm down. But is it really worth all that time being upset? Absolutely not.
So next time,let’s think about the situation and ask ourselves “Is this really worth getting upset over? Is this really something I can’t handle? Chances are the voice you will hear will say “Of course not! You got this.”
Open your mind (and heart) to everything you experience. You never know where that road will lead you. It could be right where you want to be. But if spend your time evaluating and judging you just might miss the boat- the one with your name painted on the bow. #seriouscoaching #debbieailman #positivethinking #crystalhealing
