Yesterday the kids were extra needy and tried. They were in bed by 6:45. I could feel the energy gone from my being. I knew I was going to have to work extra hard last night to balance myself. I proceeded to meditation and it quickly helped me get my energy back, but it was quickly drained again. I was not my usual positive self and I could feel the negativity. I wasn’t able to have clarity when listening to my wife. I was not in a good place. I decided I was in need of some more time with myself through meditation. Prior to going to bed, I proceeded to do another session. This time I prepared myself to sleep and connected with my breath. Wow, it really worked. I felt the ease of my body and mind. Why has it taken me so long to figure out what this tool can really bring to my life?
At 3:30 I woke up to an unexpected visitor, my daughter was standing and looking right in my face. She said her bedroom was so hot, so I quickly pulled her into our bed. Instead of being frustrated I seized the moment and made the best of it. I thought to myself she is going to be little for a short period of time. These moments won’t always be there and she won’t be willing to cuddle with her mom and dad. I helped her by being calm and understanding of her needs. I was selfless!
Life is short, enjoy the little moments before it’s too late.
This morning I’m celebrating because I’ve made leaps in bonds with myself. I’m not ignoring other peoples needs. Awareness is the biggest gift I have uncovered from my recent journey of being unplugged. I’ve always liked the idea of helping others. Today I woke and I decided I was not going to allow last night to effect my today. I know my wife could use some positivity from me. She has been working so hard at work, on herself and being a great mom. I’m truly lucky to have her as a partner in our Katz CO. Today I made sure she knows how much I appreciate her. I gave her extra positivity. Even though she doesn’t really need it from me.
Appreciate people that are always half glass full.
We need more of them.
Today as I pulled into my office parking lot. I noticed one of my co-workers getting in her car. I sensed she was really frustrated and angry. I could feel it through my car.
I walked into my office and the first thing I wanted to do was call her. I wanted to understand. I wanted to see if I could help her. I know I cared enough to call her and showed her that I didn’t want her to feel like she did. I’ve been positive lately. I thought to myself maybe I can listen to her and give her some perspective and help her change her day. I did and she appreciated it. This will give me the power I need to continue throughout my day. This energy will help me be better today.
Help someone today. It will fill your tank up!
