Day Two of Reduced Negativity

Maybe it’s because the weekend is only a day away, and this specific one marks my parents’ arrival from Michigan, but I had a much easier time dealing with and sorting through those irksome moments of my day.  Yesterday I identified three questions that help me to weigh out the importance of my negative reactions:

1.  Is this situation/problem/person worth giving away my power – AKA my Joy?

2.  Will this be a problem in 5 minutes?  5 hours?  5 days?  5 weeks?

3.  What will be the results of my down-turned mood/negative reaction?

By keeping these in mind as I traveled through my day, I found that it was easier to respond in ways that kept my head level and my heart light.

In other awesome news, I can now announce that my husband and I are going to be traveling to Turkey for our Spring Break trip!!!
