TGIF Reader! We have finally made it to the weekend. I’m hoping it will be nice and sunny out for you all. Summer is heading our way.
Today’s blog post aims towards your mind, body, and soul. One of the things I like to stress upon myself is learning to not worry so much and to not be hard on myself when things don’t go the way I pictured it.
I have spent the last year or so helping others grow and harvest themselves for the better. I gave my best advice, came up with great ideas, and had no expectations of receiving anything in return.
However, even with giving a good portion of my time and efforts, I don’t hold the ability to change one’s actions and/or behaviors. Or so I’ve learned. I can help someone develop their craft but I can’t change how they want to go about it. The process can always be done right but it has no significance behind it if they want to be deceitful, do things at their convenience, and have no regard for others.
I want you guys to consider the things you have done for others right now or even in the past. Have you ever been taken advantage from that situation? Was it ever addressed?
I drew a line on this post. I wrote all of that and stopped myself from continuing. But then I was reminded of why I wrote it in the first place.
I’ve learned to stop worrying. I have learned to change things I can’t accept and accept the things I cannot change. It has taken me quite some time to learn this.
Maybe I had to overcome a lot challenges and gain experiences to finally come to terms. Maybe I got tired of being taken advantage of and realized people only want to use me for their benefit when it’s absolutely convenient for them rather than just taking my advice and doing the right things.
You do you and I will do me. And I want those around me who have to carry the same burden to learn to worry just a little less too. On the flip side, you also don’t have to carry burden, you’re choosing to so you can absolutely choose to care a little less, worry a little less, and accept some things for what they are as it is not in your in control.
I ask that you do this for your mind, body and soul. It feels a little free, don’t you think?
I say I’ve ranted enough. Besides the seriousness, I want you all to enjoy your weekend. Have fun and be safe. I wish all your fathers (and mothers) a Happy Father’s Day!
Until the next post,
With love and support,
