You have to train your mind to be stronger than your emotions or you will lose yourself every time. A wise friend shared these wise words with me recently. She has been trying to train me to allow myself just to be happy. Her words were simple yet profound. What I realized is that my expectations are really complicated. I worry about doing enough in my life and find living up to my own expectations are challenging. As I manage to find a way to evolve, I must first look at how I manage my daily life. Hence, my determination to train my mind to be kind to myself like I am to others.
My personal expectations are complicated. I find myself spinning in circles thinking about an issue too much or place too many barriers in my way. This is especially true when I am in a hurry or distracted wanting an answer today. These days I am reading Simon Sinek’s Start With Why and Find Your Why books to help me enjoy life more. This according to Sinek is what will help you evaluate a complicated issue, then put it in perspective in your life. This will help me train my mind to be stronger than my emotions to be a more mindful person.
The ole saying of do unto others as you would have others do unto you is really good to live by. Recently, I realized the inverse is true too. Be kind to yourself so you can be kind to others. When we don’t take care of ourselves we don’t have the bandwidth or the mindfulness to be caring to others. I should wish for myself what I wish for anyone else. This is a struggle for me as it was not the mindset I was raised with. I finally realized one reason I am not feeling fulfilled is because I have not allowed myself to first be fulfilled.
I’ve started this by evaluating reactions from people before I allow my emotions to respond. Sure, people are entitled to an opinion especially if you are on a team. It is how we process that opinion that determines the emotional power of our mind. And it is, we, that determine the expectations of our lives. Train your mind to be stronger than your emotions so you can be the person you were created to be. –The ever…Evolving Mother
