“Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”
There are some days; it all seems to flow like milk and honey. Then there are those that would seem to require a little more effort than others do. We’ve each had one. I call mine the “WTF Days.”
This past Tuesday was one of my “WTF Days.” There was nothing that stood out that would cause me to lose my “I’m sexy and I know it, Wiggle Wiggle,” but for some strange reason I couldn’t shake the feeling of something being out of whack.
I tried everything to shake myself out of the funk, but nothing seemed to provide me with enough motivation to shake off the melodrama I knew perfectly well that I alone was responsible for causing.
So I figured I would tune out for a bit and I watched Eddie Murphy’s new movie, “Thousand Words”, and it only seemed to bring up more of what seemed to be my main problem.
What was the Problem you may be wondering… excess thinking about absolutely nothing that revolved around everything.
Have you ever had one of those kind of days?
Sure you have, it’s something that each of us have that we SO wished that we didn’t. It’s when our inner voice get’s a lot louder than we’d like it to get.
I talked a little bit about it a couple of weeks ago, when I mentioned the chatterboxes of our thoughts.
It could literally be about anything in the world. Something that happened fifteen years ago comes back and tries to bring itself up without your permission. Or, it could very well be something that happened as early as a few days before that got those mental wheels to spinning.
Why now? What causes us to rummage through the junk in our heads and how do we ever get the noise to quiet down and cut the chatter down to a bare minimum?
Well, most of the time we did nothing to rummage up the junk, our subconscious is simply doing what we designed it to do. It’s protecting us from ourselves. We can’t really cut the chatter down; the chatter is simply something that comes with the territory of being human. However, we can become conscious minded that they are just thoughts, with no more power than Superman in a room full of Kryptonite.
I’ve been reading a great book that’s given me a better understanding of how this all works, and I would recommend anyone who cares to learn more about it to check it out. It’s called, “The Untethered Soul – The Journey Beyond Yourself” by Michael A. Singer. It’s truly an enlightening journey!
“If you aren’t centered, your consciousness is following whatever catches its attention.”
~Michael A. Singer
In it Michael goes on to talk about what we can do is to begin understanding that not everything that comes to our mind needs to be given the room to take up occupancy in our head.
We realize that they are just thoughts. Playing out the unfinished energies that we didn’t deal with or rid ourselves of when they first took shape.
Make no mistake about it; we have to deal with them, but not in the usual melodramatic way we’ve become accustomed. If not, the chatter will continue to talk about the same things we really don’t care to discuss.
I realized that my thoughts where really about me missing my mother. Sunday was the anniversary of her passing away, but it was Tuesday that I had this blah of a day.
The moment I realized what was causing the melodrama meltdown, I simply allowed the energy to have its way. There was nothing I could do that changed it, it was like a passing car that I had to see as it was, and wait until the next one came along.
The moment I realized what it was, the day was no longer a “WTF DAY,” but a ““I’m sexy and I know it, Wiggle Wiggle Day” again. Those absolutely ROCK!
So remember this the next time you go through a “WTF DAY,” It will pass. It will come and it will go. Let it. Everything will happen, as it should. The quicker you let it, the faster you can get back to the… Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle.
