To me, to you, to the stranger down the road.
Special things break, pipes leak, relationships finish, jobs end and quite often there’s not a damn thing we can do about it. There’s nothing it seems we can do to change things.
But we do have one choice. We can remain a victim of circumstance or we can let it go and get on with life….but that, of course, is much easier said than done…
Being able to practise acceptance and to acknowledge that sometimes things simply are what they are, can be a tough ask.
But, give this a go.
Write up these two simple words and whenever the poo hits the fan and you’re feeling hard done by say them out loud:
Yep, that’s it.
Shrug your shoulders as you do it, let them drop and notice what else drops away…
(If you can give a wry smile at the same time it’s even more effective!)
Then get on with something else.
Try it and see. Think of some situation you’re holding onto and say the magic words.
The change in your perception can be quite surprising.
(It can feel pretty liberating too!)
Practise just for one day and apply it to every problem, challenge or apparent disaster that occurs.
No buying into dramas.
No feeling sorry for yourself.
And if all this sounds far too simple…..oh well!
