This statement really hit me this morning… I woke up at 5:30 am to my dog desperate to get outside… When I couldn’t get back to sleep I booted up face book and this message stared me right in the face…

After I let the dog out (and back in) I went back to my nice warm comfy bed only to be bombarded by thoughts of situations that I could not control… People that had hurt me, conversations that I should have, conversations that I have already had, and emails that I want to write. On and on and I could not turn it off…. the longer I lay there, the more frustrated I became… I could not control any one of the situations that poured through me…

And so it IS…. I can not control the way other people behave. I can not control what other people say. I can not control the dog scratching at the door at 5:30! The only thing I am in complete control of is how I choose to behave…. I could get angry at the dog for waking me up, but I know that he is having tummy issues and I am grateful that he “asked” to be let outside so he didn’t have an accident in the house. I could choose to be angry about the person that was talking badly about me, but I choose to understand that she could not see outside of herself long enough see my pain and frustration. I could lash out via email at the person that I feel has betrayed me, but I choose to recognize that betrayal as an end to a friendship that was never supposed to last..

Today, I choose to send love and kindness into the world… Today, I choose to embrace all the lessons I have learned and let go of all of the negative influences that do not serve my highest good… Today, I choose to have control over myself and my connection with God and I choose to LET GO of all the things that I can not (and if the truth be told, do not want to) have control over!!!

 

Namaste!!
