Another LC session – and I take another step up my ‘mountain’ or perhaps it really is just a hill!
As usual I’ve been ‘unstuck’ and so I move!
I’ve been asking myself lots of Why questions. As in Why is my life like this? Why have I ended up in this situation? Why is my mind fighting me? (as that’s what it has felt like).
So I am now going to practise How and What questions to myself when I find I’m going into the ‘pain’ place.
“How can I make my evenings more fun?”
“What steps can I take to enjoy life more and smile and laugh and be happy?”
As asking these types of questions is far more empowering than asking Why – which is very blocking. And as I know: You get what you focus on!
I’ve also taken the first steps in suggesting people respect me more. Today in the lunch queue one of the young graduates was teasing me – he apologized when he realised what he’d done! But I told him that actually teasing is a great compliment – people never tease those they don’t like! So we had a lovely amusing chat until one of the managers joined the queue and pointed out how she felt I was bossy, forthright …… So I stopped her in mid-sentence and said “No, I won’t have that said about me – as it’s hurtful and unkind, so please don’t!” and because I said it with a smile and a laugh she took it in very good part and apologised!
Success! One down – several more to go!!
