Just for today I won’t give every little thing that grabs my energy and attention more importance than it deserves. In the scheme of things, all of my petty annoyances aren’t all that important. I don’t have to take them so seriously that they disturb my inner peace. When I let myself get annoyed over little things, I create a negative frame of mind that builds on itself. When I am constantly preoccupied with all that’s wrong, I forget to remember all that’s right. Today, I will get my mind off of the treadmill. I will hold my tongue, zip my lip and think before I act. That way, I’ll have a moment to experience what feelings might be driving my picking and criticism.
I will get out of my own way today
We don’t see things as they are. We see things as we are.
