I prefer to live in peace without to much drama in my life. This is not always possible, but a very nice goal to reach for.
Some days ago I had a conversation, where I were reminded about Don Miguel Ruiz‘ book, The 4 Agreements.One of these agreements were
Don’t take anything personally,
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projektion of their own reality. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
Sometimes we are projecting our own worries over to other souls, where we should learn to keep them to ourselves.
I will recommend a book, if you didn’t already read it. It is an eye-opener book. There are so many great authors out there and Don Miguel Ruiz is one of these.
I have also learned that my feelings belong to me and I need to be responsible for these. If I get mad or sad, it is still my feelings and not other to blaim, how I feel. Then I just need a little time to find myself.
It seems easy like a piece of cake to be responsible for our own mood and acting, but it is not always so easy, because we often let our emotions decide and start acting before we think.
Years ago I decided to stay happy, because I am the only one, who are responsible for my happiness.
I try my best to be grateful for all life brings up to me. Sometimes I don’t understand why I get tested so much, but I think it must be because I should learn something new to me. Before I sleep in the night, I think and tell myself, for what I were grateful for today and what I can do to be a better edition of myself tomorrow.
I try not to let anger run my life. Of course I can be mad, but it is my own responsibility to be good again.
When I wake up in the morning and enjoy my coffee, I listen to the birds singing and feel very happy and grateful for being able to enjoy their songs. The nature is amazing if we are awake to see and listen, when we walk outside. It can be a new flower, a tree is blooming, a rabbit is running etc.
Do you ever think about being grateful? Please share your thoughts!
