We live in a very touchy society.
Being offended is an art form.
We are offended by the news, politics, food choices, traffic, smoking, vaping, perfume, noise, silence, comfort, hardships, weather, education, ignorance, pretense, sex, lack of sex, choices, forced opinions about choices, religion, science, fireworks, patriotism…..
So many people thinking that they know so much but ignore nothing because they are too busy being offended.
What would happen if we would just relax?
Is ignoring the silliness the best way of knowing what is good?
Tomorrow is Monday. Let’s just chill out.
(You know I Had To Do It!)
Big things coming up next week, and they are on my mind.
Can we get the seminar done with the weather being so unpredictable? Does it matter? –Things can be rescheduled.
Can I get to the office on Tuesday if it freezes? Does it matter? –I can remote print the Power Point.
Do I have to get up at O’dark 30 to fly out for a dinner and entertain clients till midnight? –No, I can go a day early, and make sure I’m fresh and ready for the conference.
Do I really have to worry about how my arms look in this dress? —-No, they are arms, they won’t change the world. Everything else is fine, just get a tiara and no one will be looking at your arms.
Why didn’t the coordinator email me back after I sent the contract and subsequent requests? —Try again.
Why is it so hard to replace the kitchen faucet? —-Let it go and move on, everything will work out.
Sometimes it’s difficult to be inside my own head. At least I’m learning comebacks for the more difficult issues, like Kitchen Faucets.
Cleaning house a little bit. Going through the drawers and closets, letting go……giving up on some of the old things.
Since Harvey, and Irma I’ve had a bit of an awakening. There is so much clutter that doesn’t matter.
I’ve cleaned out so much of what “no longer serves me”. That is a phrase that I’ve come to know in my yoga practice.
You have days when your strength, attitude, ability, and flow work. You exit the class better than you were when you went in. You have other days when you can’t keep your balance, your body rebels, and you wonder why nothing is working. It’s all ok. It’s important to let go of what isn’t working.
