Good morning my friends. As I am having my morning coffee and looking over my facebook page I see people working out, walking, jogging, and wogging. Which I like to use for a combination of the two. It occurred to me that my most important exercise I get in my day is my morning meditation. It is something I have been going for a couple of months now. It has allowed my mind to be clear. I am able to live in the “now”. I am able to accept the next minute I am alive for what it is, an opportunity to be compassionate, to have empathy, to be aware of how you make others feel when you are in a room. Twenty to thirty minutes of stillness each day will greatly improve anyone’s quality of life.
Yesterday, at work, amidst of all the chaos. As I was watching it unfold, I was able to just be in the situation without it causing me to go into panic mode and tighten up, which ultimately will increase the likelihood of me making mistakes in my own work. I watched the anger rise up from this person in the office. It rose up slowly, and then she blew. She made a huge scene and stormed out. After she left you could have heard a pin drop for about thirty seconds. It was really awkward for the person who was on the receiving end of her rant. It was at that moment that I realized I used to be her. I used to let tense situation make me boil over. Now, being able to just sit back and watch to see what is going to happen next is so freeing. It’s kind of like watching a screen play. I’m waiting to see how this is going to play out. Then thirty minutes later, we are up and running again and I am able to finish the day. It just works out. One way or another a solution will come forward. BUT if you are so clouded with anger, and fear you will miss those solutions and you will miss those opportunities.
Don’t worry! Let your life unfold as it will. Take a step back during a tense situation, and just wait to see what’s next. My theory is you are going to get there one way or another. You can go kicking and screaming or you can relax, be flexible, and go with the flow.
Love my life! 🙂
