Anytime the Mind says, “It’s too much,” question it. – Byron Katie
Especially when we feel…
- like quitting
- angry at our circumstances
- judgmental about someone else’s habits
- hurt by someone’s treatment of us
When we don’t question this indictment, we are setting ourselves up as judge and jury of the universe and everyone in it.
I have learned to push back on this thought and have always benefited. Who am I to decide what reality is or should be for me or for someone else? My power is in accepting what is, not judging it, and leaving my self time to say a pleasant, “How interesting,” before I move on to making the most of my reality.
