I have found that my day goes better if I don’t simply assume that each and every moment of it is mine to live as I choose.
What it boils down to for me becomes a matter of percentages. And I still get to live a good percentage of my life the way I choose.
The rest I choose to give away. In other words, I choose to let go of a certain amount to the things in life I have little or no control over.
First, I decide what those might be. You should do this as well.
Then starting each day with I choose to give as much as 25% + over to the unimaginable, the dastardly, the totally stupid, the rude, the “no you didn’t,” so on and so forth.
Before the smacks of “life” choose me to muck around with, I choose, how much I’m willing to let go of, in the form of percentages.
And by golly…you can too!
How’s your math today?!
When any of the above cross my path, I can easily let them pass on by without reacting [well maybe a giggle], and keep going on with my goings on.
If I didn’t I would feel constantly under fire, victimized, out of control, disappointed, miffed, down right let down, and totally jaded about life in general.
I would therefore want to throw in the towel before I even got started with my day, and so would have no reason to even get up out of bed.
In fact, I would let the alarm go off, and never push it, not even the snooze button, because I simply wouldn’t be able to see the point of existing in a world that gives me no control over my own life.
What percent of your day will you choose to let go of so that you have less stress, more peace, more actual control of the things you want in your life?
It’s not a hard question when you break it down into percentages!!!
Start today, and then make doing this a habit everyday. Starting with a 100%, how much will you choose to give up and let go of from this day forward???
It really works!!!
