Nothing is Permanent

I surrender to the little things that sometimes irritate me.

Everything and anything seems to be irritating today.  It might be a lack of sleep, coupled with having a roommate, a house with inconsistent heat in the middle of a cold snap, and knowing I have 2 more days of work to get through.

It’s easy to get into a shitty mood.  The trick is to be able to recognize it and let it go.  Feel the feeling, however long it takes, and then let it pass.

I’m still practicing.  I’m not perfect by any means.

I found myself focusing on the things that were going wrong instead of surrendering to what is.

Maybe the frustration is an opportunity to make a different choice.  If sleeping isn’t working, get up and watch a movie or do something fun.

Open a window or go outside if the house is too hot because the roommate is freezing and the house seems like it’s on fire.

Remember that this job is paying all of my bills and I do occasionally get to drive cool cars in the process.

Sometimes it all needs to fall apart in order to put the pieces back together again.

I’ve gained a significant amount of weight over the last few years.  There are a few factors that contribute to it, but most of it I think, could be “fixed” with a better attitude.

As I think about programs I could join, supplements, lotions or potions, I realize it’s an inside job first.  I don’t need to buy a bunch of crap to make me feel better about myself.

Loving myself exactly how I am, and letting go of the irritations, is really my first step. 

Recognizing I am exactly where I need to be, and everything that’s happened up until this moment has been for my benefit.

I am grateful for today’s lesson, and grateful I made the choice to be calm and happy again.  I’m especially grateful for my 28 Day Gratitude Challenge for February.  While I was thinking about what I was going to write today in my grumpy, shitty mood, I started to shift.

I have the opportunity to share my journey.  I allow myself to be honest, transparent and encouraging to my future self, as well as anyone who finds my journey helpful.

I surrender to the little things that sometimes irritate me.

I realize they are not permanent and I have the choice to stop, see them for what they are, and make the choice to move forward with a new attitude and perspective.

I am in the process of releasing all that no longer serves me, and becoming my best self  <img draggable=

Let’s see what happens tomorrow!
