I am realizing that stability is a choice.
I am responsible for my own actions regardless of the intensity of the emotion I feel at the present moment.
I realize emotions can feel uncomfortable and are often unwelcomed but they cannot harm me, for they have no power.
The only power they have is what I give them.
I have to ride the wave, sit back, accept what is being presented, experience it, not judge it and reflect. The proper thing to do is to question, “what can I learn from this experience?”
“What are these emotions here to teach me?”
“How can I use this experience to grow?”
I’m realizing growth is a choice. I can run from a situation. I have that option or look at it as a teacher.
Maybe everything in life is a teacher and we keep going around the same mountain or obstacle course until we realize that.
Jill says “feelings are not facts” and that has been the greatest lesson I’ve learned and Jill’s greatest sermon.
Danielle says to “radically accept almost everything and look at everything from a non-judgmental stance” my practice for life.
I think I am at that point in life where I want to just embrace it and grow; to heal and move on.
I don’t want to be stuck in tomorrow any longer. for today holds so many great mysteries even in its disappointments there are surprises.
I want to remain Surprisable.
