A MessengerHaha! Crazy time!

I’ve been making myself crazy lately, a sometime occurrence whereby I semi-consciously (making progress!!) sabotage my work, my relationships, and my life in general. It usually involves a fair amount of self-doubt, anger, and frustration paired with taking on too much and then getting mad at all the obligations. Charming, I know.

Fatigue sets in as a result of dragging myself through unproductive work periods followed by angsty downtime. I love watching movies, reading, taking walks, yoga, doing things around the house, and zoning ordinances; these things are either forgotten or become the bane of my (now pitiful) existence. I have a tendency to get angry and go on a fault-finding mission against my girlfriend, housemates, and/or pets (Really? The pets?! What an asshat.); these creatures become another nuisance I am forced to deal with. When, really, let’s be painfully honest: I’m the intolerable one.

I’ve been meditating regularly for the past 10 months, and I’ve made it a point to do so for the last 30 days straight. It’s helping me let go, even if it’s just a bit every day. Each day I take a step back and examine what I’m thinking and feeling a bit more. I’m only now learning to let the thoughts and feelings pass over me, to stop identifying with them so strongly, and to follow my guiding principles.

Upon further examination, I realize I’ve stabilized. I’m like the Maersk Triple E ships; put together in sections but strong and steadfast, double-anchored even. Creating dark atmospheres is like purposefully sending myself through the Strait of Malacca to be hijacked by emotional pirates. However long it takes, I will make it. Whether it’s calm seas or a narrow passage, treating everyone, especially myself, with kindness, compassion, and respect is the only way through.

Thank you for reading this. 1 month ago

AOK#2. Giving Unsolicited Advice

Last week someone I trust told me that the reason people come to vent and process their thoughts and feelings with me is because they trust me and that they want my advice. The blind spot they pointed out to me was that I am too quick to give advice. At times this overwhelms or makes people feel as if I am acting in an arrogant way. When I replied that most of the time people do actually ask me for my opinion, he challenged me to listen more closely to their need(s). This includes not only their words, but their intent. In reflecting on this I realize that while they may eventually want my ideas and input, I am way too pushy and need to back off and be more patient. This is hard for me. Really hard. This person suggested that When someone comes to me, I listen generously the first round of conversation and then give it some time. Let the person share and then process. At a later time I can approach the person and revisit the topic. I can then ask if they are looking for ideas. After learning this a few days ago I realized this is extremely important work for me to do.

Then today I once again spoke too soon. It happened yesterday as well. I feel like I am making a bit of progress, but it is one step at a time. I am gaining awareness but am not yet able to exercise the self-control. That is hard. Really hard. But it is important for me to learn. Really important. 1 month ago


AOK#1. Toxic people

I love the adrenaline rush I get engaging with folks who are passionate and fiery. Too many times, however, their fire engulfs my spirit and I begin to say and act in ways that are not true to my character. I need to own my self and my process. I am proud to be me. I can be fiery and passionate without it turning negative. 1 month ago

deepblueseaPast mistakes

I tend to dwell way to much on past mistakes. Small, petty things that really don’t matter at all at this point, still find a way to take up valuable mental space that distracts me from what I want to do NOW! I need to learn to let these things go, I can’t change what has already happened. 12 months ago

Pandsterget out of your head.

every negative thought. anything that works against me. against us.

if it has already happened, and is done, and i cant change it, then why do i still cling on to the thought so much?
i need to let go. it doesnt matter. it over with. its gone.

things happen. sometimes there are no explanations. sometimes there are. but regardless, just let go.

accept what is happening right now.
stop questioning. trust. in yourself lelie. 16 months ago

MsShootingStarNo perfection, just faith in the flaws

I’m not sure if, at the time, I meant it this way. But I did let go. I took a leap of faith and it got me halfway across the country at an internship I never dreamed I’d be doing! Whether it works out perfectly or not, I have given myself a chance and I had to let go to take that chance. 16 months ago
