Do you find yourself reluctant to make changes in your life? Especially when someone else is telling you, “You need to change!” Think about what needs changing. If there are indicators saying something needs changing, then listen. You can keep running away from facing your problems? You won’t get far. THAT WHICH WE RESIST, PERSISTS! It won’t go away until you make a conscious effort to put it away.
Do you catch yourself constantly distracted by your thoughts? Are you consumed with thinking about things – how a situation will turn our, what someone might say, how you will respond, worrying about things that have not happened yet, etc? Do you get stuck in the same thought patterns? Do you get stuck not making decisions or taking action because you can’t stop weighing all the options? Can you remember the last time you felt really happy or really sad or really angry?
I like balance. If we are too lopsided one way – thinking too much for instance – it usually creates problems for us and those around us. What would it look like if we strive for a balance between THINKING, FEELING, & DOING? We think sometimes. We feel sometimes. We do (or take action) sometimes.
I bet we would find a relief from a lot of the dialog in our head, the worry we constantly feel, or the meaning we’ve made out of things that might not have any meaning at all.
Go ahead, give it a try!
When you get angry at someone or something you are giving your power and control over to that person or thing. You react in an “angry” manner because you are trying to regain your power and control. How do you stop this cycle? You have to find your power and control from within yourself, not from outside of yourself.
