Okay, the blog this morning went off in 4 different directions. It was supposed to be light and funny and self-deprecating but turned all honest and real, and I need a minute to get it right.
So, here are some questions to ask yourself that might help you sit with difficult situations instead.
I’ll sort out the other blog tomorrow.
Or whenever I feel like it.
What am I resisting here?
What comparisons am I making?
What are the thoughts associated with this feeling?
What would it look like if I embraced this exactly as it is, instead of wishing it was different?
Most things are neutral, it is our reaction to them that causes us to suffer. Some things are harder to accept than others, but this changes nothing in any real way. We are still responsible for what we do with them.
I am going to take my cat to the vet, and then find a project to work on outside.
In closing, a great quote someone brought to my attention recently:
Resistance to the disturbance is the disturbance.
Looking for something more?
I write, podcast and make videos about living in freedom through mindfulness, intentionality, compassion, and equanimity.
