Look peeps ---- there are some things that one simply cannot and should not accept; like how the in laws have turned "dropping in" unannounced into a hobby, or the beautiful souls who speed up right when you flash your blinkers; or lastly, girls with really REALLY great skin who down Fritos for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
And then we have those other little things.....
Those trivial bits that somehow creep into our inner most complexes, tug at our nerves and make us feel really really.... well, petty.
Some inspiration gurus like to say: Follow your bliss. Well, I think that we'd get farther into the juice if we'd just follow our petty.
What sort of people or circumstances turn your noble logic and big heart into a screaming toddler who refuses to share her favorite toy?
For me, it's anyone who messes, hell, even tries to "touch" my schedule. If time were my child, it would be the most coddled kid at school. I can't explain it, I just go into fight or flight when something upsets my routine or someone changes a plan. It's hard to confess, but alas..... this is what I do.
I dig and I reveal. Over and over and over again.
Take a minute to sit in stillness and breathe into those situations that cause your spirit to shrivel. Place yourself squarely in the discomfort, and ask yourself what part of you feels threatened? Is it a conscious or unconscious block? Because between you and I, as most everything, it's probably not what it seems.
Track down petty, then ditch it for something a tad bit prettier. The world could use it.
