The one thing I’ve noticed is that if you take an unscientific poll of “reasonable” people (let’s say you pick 10) and ask them “Do you like getting together with your relatives”? Most will say “yes” immediately but then if you press them just a bit, they will undoubtedly have an issue about someone in the family, or maybe even the whole clan.
The problem is we rarely, if ever, say ” You know it’s really me, I’m the annoying one”.
No, it’s never us. We’re never the Disrupter, the Debbie Downer, the Know It All, the Emotional Vampire, the Asker of a million prying questions about your personal life or the annoyingly Perfect One.
NO, it’s NEVER us, it’s always someone else. Funny how that works. (And yes, I include myself!)
As Oprah would say, “the one thing I know for sure is” we don’t have the power to change anyone but ourselves. Annoying, I know because we can be so certain that if everyone would just do, act and say the things we want them to, life would be perfect!
But even though we can’t change others, we do have the power to change the vibe in the room. We don’t have to sit in bad vibes.
So how do we do that exactly?
We have to set an intention.
Make no mistake, when you get in the car and say
You’re setting an intention and will get exactly what you ask for.
This year I’m planning on setting the following intentions and then I’m going to keep reminding myself of them throughout the day!
Simple and straightforward. No need to get fancy. Focus on the good and let go of the bad (even if just for the day)!
As a reminder, it’s not ThanksTAKING, it’s ThanksGIVING!
Our good vibes are the gift that keeps on giving!
