“It’s our ego that fights giving up control…” — In God’s Care
Whenever I’m disturbed, some dark part of me invites and encourages me to focus on the upsetting truth for a long time. The truth is… they hurt me…. I’m not feeling good… it’s not fair. But the real truth is that I don’t want to focus on the problem, I want to be in the solution.
Today, I’ll give myself one minute – 60 seconds – to focus on any uncomfortable thought, feeling or situation that may come up. After that, I’ll refocus my attention on the solution. And if there’s no apparent solution, I’ll hand it off to God.
Employing simple life loving strategies like this is one more reason why ILML!
