We know that many of the things that happen are out of our hands. And sometimes they affect us closely. A few days ago we have been exposed to a difficult situation. Something totally unexpected that made us “cramp” inside. We were upset for a few hours. And cried too. Nothing wrong, we know it is good to allow feelings and emotions to surface. And simply feel. But we couldn’t let go of it and went into a spin of worries and negative thoughts. And actually the whole day turned sort of grey because of it. Influencing our interactions, dinner, yoga practice, etc.
A wake up call. The day after the alarm went off. Early in the morning we set a new intention. “Be aware of the ocean of choices”.
We are really trying to bring the attention to our “reaction”. What is our response in regards of any given event. We choose how to react. And that can make a world of a difference.
We are shaping our reality with our reactions. And our destiny with the choices we make.
By becoming aware of this, we are taking ownership of our life. And creating a better and more loving reality for ourselves and others.
