When something arises that we don’t want or don’t like, our tendency is to resist.
When I was growing up, like most of us, I didn’t know any better.
What I’ve learned is to notice my reactions to what comes up.
Now this isn’t always easy.
I have not yet learned the art of paying attention - every single time.
But pay attention. Notice if you are triggered. Ask yourself why.
Creating awareness around reactions to anything that comes up improves life immensely.
It’s an opportunity.
Learn from reactions.
Own what is mine.
Take radical responsibility for my part.
Shift to that place of learning and gaining from an experience rather than resisting.
We tend to cling to the way we want things to be…
Often not realizing that most of the time, something better awaits us.
Love what comes up, whatever it is 🧡
