Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. ~2 Corinthians 4:16
Earlier this AM, I was given some fairly ugly news about some people who happen to occupy some of my space. Actually, it was pretty toxic and explosive on what I was made aware of. Shock was more what it was as the day progressed. And I couldn’t really get away from the drama that I did not create either.
Remember the post about the gum on the bottom on my shoe??? While this did not involve that particular human … my positive mind felt like it was getting all cloudy with what I was allowing to filter into my melon. And I did not like it one bit.
My day was all planned out for me, or so I thought before the baby Bok choy incident. Even before the Bok choy….
I contacted a good friend and we went on a long walk around the village we call home. And we talked and talked and talked and talked and talked.
And shared laughter.
The best way to renew my spirit within is to spend quality time with a good, honest, tell-it-like-it-is friend.
I have the next two and a half days off to continue to be at peace with my life, my choices and how I exercise … to get to the end goal of being a better, healthier, happier human: To friends, my family, my coworkers-in-crime and mostly to myself.
Two lessons I learned today, July 28, 2013
- Do not blend baby bok choy and kale along with Kashi granola into any more “home-made” smoothies, and
- While we cannot control who is toxic/explosive and who is not… I can CONTROL what I allow into my mind and heart and I will not continue to allow toxic people to take control over my emotions.
Peace to ALL of you, goodnight.
