This one spoke to me because something recently happened to me the weekend just gone that made my husband question me in a similar fashion to this post.
He was upset about what happened and asked me if I was angered or upset by this particular incident.
I will not be going into detail about what happened (I know so unlike me hahahaha) but I will say the reason I was unaffected by what happened.
I’ve reached a point in my life where most people and most situations can’t effect me negatively. Too much has happened in my life to let the negative actions and behaviour of others bring me down.
I know that I am responsible for my own happiness and in knowing this not only does it give me a great sense of strength it has helped me grow immensely.
Not so many years ago I would have let the situation make me angry, bitter, resentful but not anymore. I gave myself roughly 5 minutes maybe less to mourn the experience or to let out the anger then I put all the negative energy in a balloon and let it go (one of my favourite metaphors and favourite things to do when im angry).
Once that balloon was gone, so where all the emotions inside it. It was that easy. Granted it wasn’t always that easy it took years of training but was certainly worth it.
Thankfully no longer the “victim” of my own circumstances or life, this “victor” always has a plan b and the weekend turned into the perfect weekend filled with such love, laughter and happiness that I forgot to write this post until I was reminded this morning by that very Instagram post.
Every day I’m tested by something or someone new and finally after years of losing, I’m winning! They say the universe will repeatedly put us in the same situation or will give us the same test over and over again until we finally learn the lesson intended.
Needless to say…lesson learnt!
