“Accept what is, let go of what was, and have faith in what will be.”
Welcome Readers – please feel free to leave your comments and observations in the box below as I love hearing from you!
The last week is a week I never ever want over again. As you all know by now, I am living on a building site. I am surrounded by 80 boxes, furniture and builders, plumbers, electricians and paint fumes. The paint fumes are by far the worst. Yesterday morning I had a, hmmm, the polite word would be “wobbly”. The big wobble came from a place of total and utter frustration. I told the builder I am really sensitive to paint and I asked him to let me know when he plans on painting so that I can make arrangements to vacate the house. In a couple of hours I could hardly breathe with paint fumes. The builder decided to paint whether I am sensitive or allergic or not. I was absolutely furious and freaked out with fear. This is where the “wobble” comes in. My housemate was so worried that she contacted a friend of mine who is a psychologist and I spent the day with him yesterday. I was treated to a lovely day of “me” time and spent it looking out at the sea and walking in the fynbos. One of the things I was told is that we all have thoughts all the time – both good and bad. The trick is that if a “dark” or “worry-some” thought comes into our minds we need to ask ourselves: “Does this thought have any value to me?” If not, Let It Go! I have been trying to do that today and in a weird way, it has worked quite well. Like all things, it will take practice as it is not easy.
What am I saying? Sometimes we reach a point where we have to accept a situation, let go of it and then have faith in the future. This applies to us both personally and in our business lives. When we are conflicted with personal challenges it definitely impacts on our business but we have to make the best of it, get over it and look forward.
This blog is short and sweet. We have to learn to “Let Go”. Correction. I have to learn to “Let Go”.
See you on line,
