Cultivate it as much as you can…an attitude of calm. Count to ten before you get angry. Instead of getting into an argument, walk away until you calm down. Take things at a slower pace when you can- you don’t have to be in a rush to go everywhere and do everything. Slow down a little. Spend some quiet time- maybe a walk or listening to relaxing music.
Cut off anger and drama before it takes hold. Cultivate that peaceful feeling.
Smile…when people try your patience. When they carry on and complain don’t get drawn into it…keep smiling.
Think of something pleasant or funny and keep your thoughts trained on that. Let the complaining just go. Wish that person well. Maybe they are sad or unhappy and that usually is the case. But whatever the reason, smile and keep your composure.
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
Sometimes ya gotta…let go. Sometimes you need to walk away from a situation where you may not be getting the best possible outcome. And that applies to our relationships as well.
If you are not being treated with respect and if you don’t feel good being in the company of another person then it may be time to move on. Waiting for somebody to change may mean you’re in for a very long wait. Yes, people CAN change and often do- but a lasting change is one where the person makes that change because they honestly feel it is in their own best interest to do so and not because somebody else is trying to “make” them do it. Those types of changes never last and the person being asked to make that change may come to resent it- and you.
Always remember that you are worth being loved and appreciated and seek out those who will indeed appreciate you- and then you do the same for them.
