Last week, I wrote on soulful work and living. This week, on LinkedIn, I shared on walking it. Today, I find myself in the eye of the storm, a brief shining moment of peace amidst huge amounts of stuff to do, all converging this latter part of September. The overwhelm in the eye. Aaaaagh. Then, I realize that it is Day 93 of ROCK 105 … all about…
Huh? How does that even relate? Telling the truth kindly and gently? Reflecting on my words? Thinking before I speak? Not allowing anger to control? Discerning the timeliness of thought and speech? Courteous language? How does this relate or resonate?
In our self talk. What if, when in overwhelm, we spoke to ourselves thusly? What if this over somehow beating ourselves up?
Hmmmm. Hmmmm indeed. Hmmmmm in deed.
Give that a try. I am.
In addition, and over Days 94 (Thursday) through 97 (Sunday), I will be practicing…
Thankfulness, Thoughtfulness, Tolerance and Trust. Now, there is a T-4 worth considering. And they tie into the message of today. To practice Tact with myself, maybe I consider the roles of Thankfulness, Thoughtfulness, Tolerance and Trust.
What a thought!?
Worth a thought.
Peace, passion and prosperity…
