I asked my “How can I…” question for the day:
How can I accept the present moment when I hate it?
I was feeling aggravated, and I was ready to feel better. I figured out that when the question is asked, the answer comes. Sometimes we don’t listen to the answer or sometimes the answer comes from Facebook!
Shortly after completing my CalmUp® Journey, I went on Facebook to take a look and perhaps write a post. I’m certain that it was no coincidence that I ended up on the Shamanic Oneness site shared by my friend, Ula.
It was there that I found Justin Pinkley’s quote: I choose to simply acknowledge any negative, not giving it any further energy; to deny any negativity would be to deny reality.
That was just the message I needed! I ascertained that I don’t have to like the moment in order to remain open and accepting.
After finding my own personal meaning in the quote, I shared my thoughts through my post:
Even the dark moments are part of creation. We can accept them. We can breathe through them. We just don’t need to wallow in them.
IT’S ABOUT YOU:
- What’s your “How can I…” question today?
- What have you found on a social networking site that uplifted you?
- How would you reword Justin’s quote for your own personal meaning?
