How ya feeling? How would you rate your emotional well-being? Are you content, joyous, at peace with past and current life events, happy with your current physical state, social situation? We can all find ourselves in bondage, replaying unwanted events of the past or feeling bad about our current physical or financial condition. How about seeking:
FREEDOM? It may seem crazy, but we can all find ourselves in emotional chains which WE create with our thoughts. Thoughts about the past, the present, the future. I’ve come to realize that no one can treat me as bad as I do! If an unwanted, unexpected event has happened to me or is happening to me, I have a choice. I can elect to be in fear, discontent, anger, or even depression. I can imprison myself. Or, I can deal with reality and live in a state of gratitude, peace, and love. I can be free.
I recently had dinner with two of my girlfriends. I love being around them. Although life has thrown them some undesired circumstances that none of us would want to undergo, they are full of joy, at peace with the past, living life to the fullest. They turned lemons into lemonade. I joked that they: “Aren’t normal and need to get with the pity party plan.” They laughed. While they didn’t wish divorce, family members with serious illnesses, financial disruptions, and other challenges, they are moving ONWARD. They are an inspiration to me that I can do the same if faced with similar situations.
Need inspiration? Read Man’s Search for Meaning by Dr. Viktor Frankl. Check out YouTube videos on Alice Herz-Sommer, a Holocaust survivor, or read about Vietman POW James Stockdale. These are just a few amazing examples of the human ability to overcome extreme adversity and live a fulfilling productive life.
The Problem: Our Ego! The Fear Factor. It wants to assign guilt, shame, blame, anger, discontent. The Answer: Our Inner Spirit. The Freedom Factor. It knows only love, forgiveness, peace, contribution. Choose Wisely. Break out of your prison. Choose FREEDOM! It’s about Living WELL Aware!
THANKS to Extraco Banks for having me speak to leadership last week. Also thanks to Hallettsville ISD, Van Vleck ISD, and Temple College for allowing me to help them kick start their school year. The healthier we are, the more we can help. ONWARD!
