In the last few days, I’ve been squeezed, by working more than I want in a short-staffed environment. Unfortunately stress, anger,
irritation, judgement and hatred were what emerged from me.
All this negativity is a product of my thoughts “I hate this, I don’t like this, this shouldn’t be like this, they are doing this too
me,” etc. This constant barrage of vile thoughts led me to being unhappy and upset. However, it’s time to get real – I’m the one with the problem.
One of my main values is supposed to be love. I’m in breach of this. I’m not focusing on the love or being loving. Another value is
spirituality – I’m not being grateful for the things I have- a job, workmates I love, giving customers an amazing experience, management that supports me (and awarding me prizes). Instead, I’m choosing to take a pessimistic view on the situation.
Yesterday, I wasn’t a being a light and love in this world. I can’t control what happens around me, the only thing I can control is
Today, I am going to dedicate myself to living my values. I will think loving thoughts and focus on happiness. I will see the lesson and the blessing in all that happens to me, and be open to opportunity.
When I get squeezed today, I promise myself that love will be what flows out.
