Saturday’s Affirmation

This is your moment,

your moment is now!

Just a thought:

If you are waiting to live a life of fulfillment the way you always wanted– in the meantime, you are existing. If you in the meantime live a life of fulfillment in the moment- you are living- not existing only.

Learn to embrace your moment– your present moment is a surety but some other time is not promised.

Disappointment

Disappointment

 grudge

Disappointments are misplaced expectations.  We expect from

others a level of commitment they are not emotionally committed

to fulfill. Our level of expectations may be higher than their level

of willingness. Others simply may not have the same amount of

interest to invest in the fulfillment of our expectations.  Because

of this, their shortcoming becomes the cause of our 

disappointment. We may even hold a grudge when our 

expectations aren’t met.

But, instead of disappointments or holding a grudge, we should

take a look at our expectations. Have we set our

expectations too high? Are we sure others are committed

as we are?  Are others clear about our expectations? Even

when there is an understanding between the parties involved

disappointment will occur. The way we react is a sign we did

not have consideration of the possibilities of failure or 

shortcomings. Instead of holding grudges there is a way out…

Skeletons in the Closet – Daily Prompt

Closet

skeleton

Some things are out of our control. Life doesn’t always function as desired. Circumstances happen to us we did not create. As a result, we may feel ashamed, in desperation, hurt, and betrayed by the actions.

Rather than allowing the past to control our present and future, we should seek the peace needed to enter into a place of reconciliation with the menacing skeletons which hunts us and bury what we can’t change.

The mind is the battlefield. Since metaphorically our closet represent our mindset don’t deny skeletons exist. Address them. Do whatever is possible to change the skeletal situation. Move beyond the memorial shrine we place them in.

Some may think life is more complex than that, the reality is, although we can’t  control others and situations already occurred, we can control how we allow situations to affect us. Stop putting time and energy to explain or justify why you can’t move forward.

You can see the closet as a place where things are hidden or see the closet empty of the things you have rid yourself from. Your closet represents a burial site or a memorial. It’s up to you.

Do you have any skeletons in your closet or are they buried?
