Sometime I have to take opposite/contrary action.
Today is one of those days.
I have been feeling a bit “off”, nothing I can really put my finger on, but noticeable to myself, and others that I am close to. I was reacting with impatience, irritation, and a bit edgy. I was feeling restless and unsettled in my own skin. I do not enjoy feeling this way, and thankfully, rarely do.
Today as I became aware of feeling uncharacteristically uncomfortable, I made a conscious decision to act opposite of how I was feeling. I would chose to embrace, and exude peace and tranquility.
Setting this intention, was the first step to change. Each time I started to react, I paused and shifted my attitude to one of acceptance and peace. I started to feel better and the time moved more smoothly along.
By mid day, I was back to my usual self, feeling present and calm. Another reminder of the power of our intentions, as well as the ability we all possess, to choose the way we want to approach each day.
If you are like me, and find yourself having “one of those days”, you have a choice to make. You can stay right there, or you can move to a position of willingness, and make a conscious decision to shift your attitude, and then take acting moving toward this new direction.
Are you keeping yourself stuck? You don’t have to stay there. . . . . at any given moment you have the to power to change your experience. At first you may have to keep turning over your mind, but it does get easier, and you reap the benefits of the liberation it brings.
