In Living Your LIFE
The experiences in my life lately have been some teachable moments packed full of life’s learning lessons! Sometimes these experiences turn into laughable moments because that is the BEST way to get through it!
Sometimes these experiences come one at a time and then sometimes these experiences come in waves. Every experience is different and plays by its own rules too! I enjoy playing the doubting and the potential outcome game, NOT. Just get it over with and rip the band-aid off already!
There are times I stop to think about it. There are times where I want to give up and take the easy way out or just surrender. There are times where I seem to go against the flow more than with the flow. I so wish I was one of those people that could surrender by just accepting what is happening in my life at the present moment and just go with the flow!
How do you accept let alone embrace what is happening in your life?
I am very much a challenger and a controller! I usually get defensive when challenged because I want to be the one in control. I do not let go easily and accept what is happening in my life lightly! I usually want to take action and just get it over and done with.
I am slowly learning that resistance and trying to take over control of what is happening in my life is futile! Plus I am probably missing the best parts too. I certainly do not need to add stress to my life that is for sure, but of course I do! I struggle with either not doing anything or tackling it head on. There is no middle ground for me or at least one that I cannot see!
The hardest part for me has been finding patience! I am impatient with myself as well as other people. My impatience has just added fuel to the fire in certain situations! There are times I want to run like heck through certain situations and move on to the next thing. Sometimes I will run through multiple next things in a month’s time too!
What Truly Matters
The last thing I want to do is waste my energy reasoning with my own mind and my own emotions! Sometimes my mind is experiencing something totally different than what is truly going on. Then my emotional self kicks my rational self right out of there and my emotions, feelings and thoughts go on hyperdrive! My main goal is moving through the experience so I can move forward once again.
It really comes down to believing and trusting in myself! Instead of fighting against myself! The hardest part is hearing it, listening to it and taking action. I need to have a positive mindset, really follow my intuitions and be true to the real me with what I am experiencing in my life. It is not easy, but I am doing it for me and my well being!
I truly want to focus on what serves me and matters to me! Not get held up or stuck on the dumbest things, especially the trivial things. Life is way too short to be doing that and need to get on to living it! I am figuring out what I want in my life and what truly matters to living the life I want.
