In the Blink of an Eye
by Dennie Sueirro, RScP
That which thought has done, thought can un-do. – Ernest Holmes
Life can get BIG sometimes. People say or do things that hurt us or trigger old patterns of feelings, beliefs and behaviors. When we act on these feelings or get embarrassed by our behavior the downward spiral begins! All of a sudden we are thinking, ‘I am no good and nobody likes me!’ Or, ‘poor me, poor me, pour me another drink!’ (or hand me another cookie, or another bag of chips, or let me send a text or tweet!)
What I know about that is… at any moment I can start over! I can reboot my day, my moment, my life with this simple reminder! I can remind myself of the goodness of who I am regardless of what has just transpired! I am God! I am Loved and Loving. And I can do this as many times as I need to until suddenly, everything shifts, and I am back to my peaceful state of mind again.
I take a few deep breaths, and I focus on the Goodness of who I am.
