I was never one to flip people “the bird.” That’s not my style. Yet, I’ve done my share of being sarcastic and mean to folks. Sometimes I’ve felt like it all happened so fast that my worst instincts got the better of me before I could even put a stop to it. Have you ever had that happen? Most people have.
It’s a result of feeling overwhelmed and stressed in the moment.
Many of us feel there’s nothing we can do about it.
And some of us feel that it’s not our fault.
I used to believe both of those things.
Years of deciding to release my judgments and opinions has cleared my mind so that I now have the space to feel calm and peaceful no matter what, IF I WOULD LIKE TO. It still comes down to my willingness and my personal choice.
I’m so grateful I have a choice!
Going the “other way” isn’t a burden.
I think of it as flipping the switch.
If I walk into an utterly dark room and it’s scary, I can flip the switch, turn on the light and realize the darkness has no power, only the light has power.
The darkness is nothing.
The Light is something.
Only the Light has power.
It has the power to instantaneously eliminate darkness.
The darkness doesn’t complain, argue, resist or refuse – it can’t, because it’s NO-THING. Light is everything.
Let’s focus on the Light.
And learn to remember to flip the switch!
