Living the Experience is the Best Teacher, The Best Motivator
Last week 1 day I was reminded what goes on if we let the external world regulate us. It was a true awakening and reminder, in case…
The sky is overcast with dull gray clouds, intermittent rain coming down, dull thunder is grumbling off and on, the grass is yellow, almost white from not enough rain, it is just gloomy out there, have to have lights on in the home to see………… feels like nature is struggling today, unsure what it desires to do, kind of listless just plugging along using this to that particular, sort of hopeless or perhaps ‘helpless’. Storm sirens just stopped. I’m sure you got the photo by now.
I feel sucked into that same type of energy. Feel type of dull, listless, lethargic, my body system is tired, my eyes are tired and wish to close… maybe I should return to bed and close my tired eyes until pretty much everything passes over.
Hmm. This is not the true me. Almost always I rise with enthusiasm, smiling, willing to move on whatever I’ve planned during the day.
What’s going on? I’m letting (allowing) the external world control my feelings, emotions, energy and my will to live a life. That’s doesn’t feel good.
I’m gonna change that because I can, I control my life. I’m planning to take a nap, to help remedy my tired eyes because that is real.
Two hours later, I wakened, and let my internal self take charge with joy, energy, and enthusiasm. What a difference in my mindset and attitude! Joy, energy, enthusiasm, achievement and many types of that I want comes from the lining, not the outside.
I appreciate that step back to recollect how life thinks when I let it and reaffirm that I can change playing when I am conscious, aware, and choose to switch it. Mindset, attitude……. exactly what a blessing it is when we take charge.
Have an awesome week filled with a smile in your face, enthusiasm, and joy within your heart.
