Sometimes we can react rudely to someone, thus separating ourselves from others. In other words we separate our heart’s emotion connection, creating a lacuna between us and others. We can justify our rude behavior all we want, however if it compromises our emotional management it is not working for us, it is not giving us good results in our everyday relationships. We must exercise grace.
I am not saying that having good principles is deleterious or pernicious. Having good principles is exceedingly important,it provides us with guidelines to make good decisions. We must not hide behind “principles’ to be rude to people. Sometimes we use our principles to justify our toxic emotions.
How many families have been hurt by this false “righteous indignation”? I know of some. Perhaps you also know of someone. I know of a woman who is constantly stirring unhappiness for herself and others due to her false righteous indignation. She does not make life enjoyable for anyone, not even for herself.
An easy example of her rudeness is noted, when she saw her neighbor’s dog leaving excrement on her front yard, she quickly proceeded to pick it up and placed it on the neighbor’s property, right outside his neighbor’s car door. Not a nice thing to do. We must hot hide behind “principle” to be rude.
If you want to help your day to go smooth, keep in mind the most important things to do. Have them organized in order of importance, first things first. It really depends on what your priorities are, make sure that your priorities are real priorities. In the morning say good morning to your family, to your co-workers, to anyone you meet in the hallway, top that with a smile and with eye contact. It makes a difference in other people’s day. Stay healthy, if you are in the medical field or even if you are not, wash your hands using common sense, before and after tasks that require it. Also make sure the area where you work is clean to prevent acquiring infectious organisms. Think about how much health depends on your attitude today, if appropriate give someone a hug. Start at home. Laugh as appropriate, laughing is a good medicine.
Take your vaccines if you are due , pharmacies offer the Influenza vaccine annually for a reasonable fee.
If you are around infants you must get the Tdap (Tetanus and diphtheria, whooping cough) Protect babies, if they catch the whooping cough from grown ups it is deadly to them.
Something else you can add to your to do list is taking your fiber in your food, drink plenty of water, eat simple whole food.
Very powerful messages are sent through words. At home, at work, all around us we constantly send messages to people as well as messages to ourselves. Our own minds receive messages that can either empower us or weakened our potential.Words are strong enough to help our body’s healing processes. We must remember that our mind is not much different than a computer, if we put positive information it, we can only get positive information out. Our daily work should be to program our computer, in this case our mind with good information. Accurate, clear, true information, will assist us in reaching better conclusions. Good quality words, are a positive approach to help us be successful, prosperous, peaceful.
We must practice this approach and we soon will see the results. For instance if we do, it does not matter what difficulties we face every day, as we focus on the positive and good things that connect us to our source of peace, we will become stronger. Think of positive statements to ingrain in our minds that we can be the person we want to be. Let us have a good plan of action to benefit ourselves and others. Practice using words such as challenge instead of problem, eager instead of anxious, when instead of if, do not say I’ll try instead say : I can/ I will do it. Use words that edify.
