Be prepared to be enlightened.
You decide how you want to feel.
You may be in a situation that you are not happy with.
You may be a parent with kids hanging on your legs.
You may be in the middle of planting or harvest.
You may be in the middle of calving.
You may be awaiting markets prices to increase.
Most of these things you have no control over…they are called circumstances.
What-ever your situation know this – You choose…how you “get” to feel!
You get to choose how you want to feel. Happy, sad, pissed off, scared…you get to choose. There are appropriate feelings for every situation:
Can you do anything about overworked sometimes – no.
Can you do anything about crying kids or “Mom…Mom…Mom” (!!!!!)… Other than leaving the room – the kids are still there.
Can you do anything about the markets? Ummm… let me know if you figure that one out.
Most circumstances in our lives we have no control over. We can’t control other people – that’s for sure. But we can control how we want to feel about it. We get to choose how we react to it.
This is good news – trust me. Because after we’ve had our melt down we can get our shit back together and create feelings that will encourage us to make the choices that are best for us.
So, humor me… go back to a time when you made a bad decision. What were you thinking at the time? What was your bad decision. Where did it get you? Did it get you closer or farther from where you wanted to be? Hey, I’m not judging. I’ve made plenty of bad choices in my life – lol.
Now go back to a time when you made a good decision. What were you thinking at the time? What motivated your choices? Where did that get you.
What I invite you to understand is that you don’t have to be along for the ride. You are in charge. You are a strong, confidant woman and you get to choose how you want to feel. Just know that – because that is where that fine line is between being a strong woman and a victim.
If you would like help understanding you decisions, that’s what I do! Come work with me!
