So you’ve started to realise that not taking it personally is definitely a way forward to change your life and maybe you have dabbled in some journaling, but how do you keep up your stamina?
Surely you can’t spend the rest of your life lounging around with your candles and gel pens delving deep into your soul or maybe you don’t want to. There is life to be lead, work, family, children, relationships, bills, shopping, blah blah blah.
Well no it doesn’t have to be this way,
more of a change of attitude,
more of a noticing,
more of a paying attention to yourself
I wonder what is going on here
I wonder how I am feeling.
Just taking the time to notice, to pay attention on a regular basis will have an impact. If you are listening to yourself more, maybe you won’t need to get triggered because in the simple act of listening you are being proactive and don’t need the triggers to warn you that something is amiss.
As human beings we make life complicated and therefore assume that the solutions also have to be, they don’t.
The effectiveness isn’t just in the remedy but in how often you take it.
Be gentle, be kind, pay attention and in those moments, cherish.
