This Sunday is all about the calm and quiet ~ a time to reflect on my actions and reactions. There is a limit to how much i can deal with negative people. When it reaches the limit, i tend to shut down and stay as far away as i possibly can. Perhaps i am just taking the easy way out. Thinking deeper, we always have a reason why we are being upset, or why we do things and say things that hurt each other. But isn't there something in life more important than just carrying around the pain and hurt we feel? After all, everyone makes mistakes and honestly, we all do stupid things to hurt one another.
Overcoming my pride and learning to forgive is one approach i can practice when it comes to dealing with negative people. "Whatever you have done by body, speech or mind, which irritates me or really hurts me deeply, i forgive you." Being content is another approach. Sometimes i wonder if i expect from life far too much ~ having all these plans and demands from myself and life. It's nice to remind myself to tone it down and have less expectation or no expectation in life. It's also nice to remind myself that whatever happens to me in life, always see it as something wonderful and to see the positive side of it Contentment is about being content and knowing what the possibilities are and working with these possibilities. If it is something i can do, give it everything i have got. If there is nothing i can do, let it go.
There, i said it.
And i'm going to keep admitting it.
Here's to a little calm and quiet coming your way this Sunday.
Hope you have a good one.
Love to you
