Sometimes when one is going through a struggling time (personal/work relationships, financial hardship, employment opportunities, or general turmoil) one must stand in the mirror and ask the following question…
*******A QUIZ TO FOLLOW*********
What pot am I stirring that I need to put the lid on and step away from? What ingredients (belittling, jealousy, loathing, degrading, backbiting, self-righteousness, gossip, superiority, envy, greed) might I be contributing via pouring and spewing, that “ain’t” none of my business? At some point you must ask yourself, “am I part of the problem or part of the solution” (this does not require a rocket scientist brain)?
Maybe it’s time you bake up something of your own creation. Something with a little less negativity and a lot more positivity toward life and the lives you’ve been blessed to touch. Cease being up in the “mix” of everything with everybody and focus on your own success and the business you need to handle today and tomorrow.
Sometimes we stay in an unhappy state without questioning …why? Is it the routine? Is it the safest choice? Is it the comfort of not having to make a choice?
How about you rummage through your cupboards, grab a mixing bowl, pour in some courage, honesty, strength, self-confidence, thoughtfulness, kindness and a heaping of compassion and stir it until it makes sense to you. This could get messy, but that’s okay 🙂 life get’s messy.
In the end, Karma bakes up and serves both the good and the evil, but you have to determine which side of Karma you’re gonna be standing on before the decision’s made for you.
