As I was driving into a meeting today I found myself ruminating over a discussion that I had with my family the previous evening. It’s funny because at the time of the discussion, which I felt was more like an attack, I easily talked myself out of feeling bad or being upset, and did not give it another thought, until that moment, driving into my meeting. And think about it I did! I found myself getting all worked up as I tried to make sense of what went on the night before. I was having a full-blown conversation with my self about this so-called attack! Which was in the past…it should not even be an issue anymore! If I did not let it derail my good thoughts last night, why was I letting it do so today?
Sometimes we just need to choose to let go and have a better thought! This was one of those times! I thought about what I was doing and asked myself why I was doing it! It boggles my mind, because for a minute I am like ” leave me be!” to my inner voice!!The voice that is trying to get me to let it all go! It is like I am choosing to dwell on it!! Like I enjoy it……
It took huge effort at that moment to let it go and reach for a better thought!
In the end I decided to take my own advice and turn on some inspirational music! And guess what? It worked! Before I knew it I was praising God and thanking Him for all of my blessings!
But wouldnt ya know it….I found myself thinking those same thoughts again a few minutes later!
The EGO is so strong! But the volume on my car radio is loud! And…we won!
Peace to YOU!
