I came across today’s inspiration on Facebook, and I feel like with Christmas upon us, we can all use some tools in our pockets.
As we start to go to parties, and celebrate the end of the year, we come across a lot of people who have nothing good to say; most of those people are our own families. It is never too early to prepare for these occasions.
As you start to interact with the naysayers, it is always a great idea to have an escape plan. When you are coming from a place of love, and know how you are going to keep moving forward, there seems to be less, casualties. When you come from a place of responding instead of reacting, you tend to leave any situation and the offender feeling loved instead of hurt or angry.
We all have people in our lives that have nothing good to say. They see the world as bleak and dismal as possible; however, we can always have patients and love them anyway. We don’t have to leave them with more evidence nothing ever works out for them.
When we are able to anticipate the conversation, we can come up with quick things to say that will leave them thinking, and you have escaped the dismal conversation. When you can wrap up their sad conversation, with something positive; you can walk away quickly, and leave them agreeable. It will leave you in a happier state than if you would have not prepared.
When you start to respond differently, you will start to attract new people to you…the ones who are inspired, passionate, motivated, grateful and open minded.
Have an amazing day my friends.
