Well, the signs were most definitely there for me this morning.
I woke up feeling a little tingly. It was good tingly. I had some new positive thoughts stirring in my mind. I was thinking about how just a tiny shift in perspective could make me feel better. Just a little faith, a little softening of my thoughts - and I could find the solutions - find the way out of the mazes I find myself in at times in my mind.
The topic for today's podcast this was softening one's perspective and faith. Here it is:
Right before I went for my walk this morning, I had a opportunity not only to practice what I preach, but to handle things a little differently. If you listened to my podcast, you'll hear me talk about this snaggle with the tree guy. Well, so far it is turning out ok. I called him, spoke clearly, told him what I felt was fair, and he didn't argue with me. As I write this blog, my electrician is on the roof assessing the damage. So here I go again. I'm hoping it's an easy fix. Breathing. Breathing. Softening my perspective. It's hard. It's not easy. When I don't know which direction the wind is going to blow, I begin to feel a little uneasy. However, if I have faith I can ride out - which ever way it goes - that gives me my power back.
I came home after my walk and set out again to take a little drive and get some coffee. As I was driving my eyes glanced over and I saw this beautiful street art. It's funny, I took a silly selfie this morning, but after I saw this, I figured this had to go on today's blog. Look at it. Doesn't the image soften your perspective? It's so sweet. Someone took the time to put this there, for all to see.
Okay, I'll admit, it's not all roses today after having this epiphany. I still need to deal with the electrician, the tree guy, some feelings that are coming up - it's not as if my emotions just go poof and I'm perfectly at easy, right? It's takes practice. Sure I may learn the lessons, have the awareness, but it's in the practice and experience that the new programming really sets in, right? Yes, I believe that is so.
My goal is to practice softening my perspective throughout the day. Like right now - found myself getting a little tense - so I softened my shoulders. I'm a little nervous, I went out to speak with the electrician and he feels this issue might be a little bigger than he had thought. I'm taking a deep breath.
I found myself getting irritated this morning with myself and family. It happens. It will happen. But I'll also acknowledge I'm noticing other shifts - small changes - small observations - having a little bit of faith. Good job Rebecca.
