Thanks for popping in.
Been going like the clappers today –
Have ticked a load of boxes!
Got up really early and came into the office in the dark.
Decided to power through some TV proposals and play catch up.
On the way into work, I was listening to the radio. The DJ was going on and on and on about nothing in particular, talking a load of rubbish really. I could feel myself gradually getting wound up, like a coil. It was a combination of his pitch and the inane babble.
So I did the obvious: switched the radio off.
Same with the news. When it gets to me, I stop watching it.
Same with Facebook. When it winds me up, I stop going to it.
Same with individuals. When they upset me, I shut them out.
It doesn’t matter what they think of me; that’s their business.
what matters to me is what I think of them.
In fact, I stopped buying newspapers years ago, for the selfsame reason. I could feel myself getting agitated and angry, and since there is absolutely nothing I can do about any of it,
I D E T A T C H. I D I S E N G A G E.
No point in spending my vital energy on bull, on stuff that gets me down, but over which I have absolutely no say or control. In fact, it seems the more energy I give it, the more I fuel it in my mind.
Life’s too short to waste it, don’t you agree?
It’s not a cop out; it’s self preservation.
Blocking negativity or senseless drivel can only be a good thing.
I find I have much more positive energy to spend on more constructive things, and my head doesn’t get clogged up with other peoples’ stuff. Because that’s what it is: just STUFF.
Then drink a smoothie instead of coffee,
and the whole world looks different!
Love & Hugs,
