One great thing about being on this path and actually doing the work of healing the mind, is that as you progress you can see the choice points. This means you create a lot less trouble for yourself. Which is SUCH a good feeling.
I can remember when I began to really get that my upset was caused by me and that I had the power to make another choice. I began to actively celebrate my decision to turn away from the thinking that was so painful and caused so much distress.
Deep down, I knew that I had the power to choose a higher thought.
Still, I continued to choose to affirm that life was happening to me and it wasn’t my fault.
I can remember feeling that thinking it was happening TO me rather than BY me was some how preferable. For a long, LONG time, I put so much energy into blaming others.
People often tell me that they’re amazed at how much I accomplish. Well, it’s because I don’t invest my energy in a lot of things that take up huge amounts of time.
So many have told me they’re plagued by a fear of not having enough time to live the life they’d like, but that’s a made up story. Instead, they’re investing their time and energy in things that are wasteful and draining of energy.
I used to binge watch tv SO OFTEN.
I did it to escape.
Now, I occasionally make a date with myself to enjoy a favorite program for a few hours, but I don’t feel like I’m wasting time. It feels fun and restful.
I don’t feel guilty afterwards.
It’s like having a big ice cream sundae.
If you do it in moderation, it’s a wonderful and enjoyable thing!
If you’re doing something you enjoy in a way that dulls your senses, in order to escape from the pain of this world, it’s delaying the healing due to overwhelm.
I’m so familiar with feeling afraid that I don’t have what it takes, and instead choosing to escape, and delay my healing due to overwhelm. Enough! That’s not helpful.
