Life isn't always easy but you don't have to take it personally.Turn your eyes towards the LIGHT. There is always another way to view life. When things look dark and you feel pain.....then let yourself feel it fully and WATCH the story that unfolds in your mind. Don't let yourself become a victim in that story. Just watch it and remind yourself that you can just simply FEEL what you feel - sadness, anger, disappointment and hurt, but running the story is optional.
Yesterday I had the opportunity to join with 'strangers' not once, but TWICE to remind me that my stories are just that: STORIES! I make them up. In the first instance I was on a bus and a woman boarded and sat in the seat opposite me. We laughed our heads off and the bus driver joined in our conversation! I was telling them that I could make a true 'Days of Our Lives' drama story about the issues happening in my life and then I said the above words to them: "Life isn't always easy but you don't have to take it personally." I said out loud: "I like those words, I am going to write them down!" Ha ha! When the woman left the bus I wished her a magical day and she looked at me with great joy in her eyes and said: "Meeting you has already made it a magical day." The second time I was reminded when I was in a store waiting in a long queue and was chatting to the man in front of me. A woman joined the queue and I said to her: "You can join our conversation". She began by making up a story of why there was only one shop assistant serving. She had decided that all the staff had gone out to a lunch because the shop next door was also short staffed. I laughed and said that's a good story! Then the man in front of me said that he thought that a few of the staff had left early to go away for the long weekend. The woman immediately said: "I think you are on to something, that's probably it." We all laughed when I said: "That's a good story!" When I got to the front of the line another shop assistant turned up and I turned to the woman next to me and said: "She has probably just come back from the toilet!" We laughed out loud! Then the man in front of me turned to me as he was leaving and said: "You should be a writer!" I smiled and told him I was! So here it is....my writing for today! I hope you see that your stories can make you miserable or they can be seen for what they are...just stories! Turn your eyes towards the LIGHT and you will never believe your suffering stories again! You will probably end up laughing instead of crying!
