Last time I covered three aspects of a strong mind, soul, keeping in mind there is the conscious and subconscious. What are the next three aspects to this.
Don’t wallow in whatever crap is going on, or in negative emotions, pain etc…For the past three days due to TMJ and arthritic inflammation from my osteoarthritis, I have been in pain, face swollen, hurts like heck to chew anything. I could be going into depression, woe is me, ahhh poor me, ohhh why me, why the fibromyalgia had to hit me, boo hoo, cry me a river. Don’t get me wrong, it is no fun, it’s annoying, frustrating, not fun, but wallowing rather than going to get my overdue haircut, and running needed errands won’t change the situation, won’t take the fibro away. I choose to keep moving forward, understanding that I do have to respect my body’s limits, but still within that move forward. No wallowing! Be kind, and that can mean giving a smile, saying thank you to the person who serves you coffee, telling them to have a great day. Kind can come in small packages. We can all do better I am sure in this area, me as well. I don’t always have the patience I should, maybe it’s the fibro frustration, but I know I can do better. Bitterness, anger etc.. that constantly in your heart, spirit and soul are really a heavy load to carry. I did a piece I believe on the difference between anger and righteous anger, so please check that out. Take calculated risks. Notice the word calculated, not impetuous, impulsive, reckless risk, calculated. You look at the pros and cons, risk and reward factors and you see if the pros outweigh the cons and rewards would outweigh the risks. You don’t for truly important decisions go rushing in like a blind fool, that’s not courage that’s just being a moron and a blind fool. Learn the difference and take it from me the sooner you learn that, the better. Courage is not about jumping in all the time into every situation based on feelings and emotions in the heat of the moment. That’s immaturity. I hope that we all learn the difference, but hopefully sooner rather than later in life. If we can look at these things, maybe do a life scan and see where we might have wallowed etc.. .and how it led us down a not so great path, we can maybe not repeat that pattern, work on changing patterns. I hope to have a workshop on that in conjunction with the wellness wheel a life seminar in September in Manhattan, NY. I hope you will look at how maybe you have been in regards to these areas of the mind, soul and see where you might need to do a rethink.
