As our times are changing so drastically, I find myself trying and I say trying to control what is outside of me more often than not. You may ask how this is connected to “What’s right with me,” and I’ll share with you this: first of all, I believe in living what I bring to the table so…
Now that I’m working on another layer of letting go, letting God and letting others be, I find myself relieved because I don’t have to take care of everything. I never had to, I just thought I would… or had the illusion that I did.
I find that the more I come into my own self, I meditate on me and what’s really troubling me, I’m finding that if I pick or address someone else’s shortcoming I am simply ignoring what I need to deal with within myself. A few ideas that are working for me and may work for you are:
- Make it a point to meditate at least once a day. (five minutes is a good place to start)
- When I’m ready to point a finger or let someone know my disappointment, I:
- Bring this back in and ask myself “what is this really about?”
- Am I being honest with myself?
- If I was taking care of what is bothering me within myself, is the issue I have with another really what’s happening?
These questions are helping me to stay “real” and in alignment with self. I also recognize that the more I come into my “self,” the more solid, more fulfilled I feel and am able to stay in a place of joy and gratitude.
