This morning I was running late to my Pilates class, and so I order a VIA car share, enter in the address, run out of the car and down the block. I’m rushing towards this address…. and I finally get there to find that I’m at the wrong building.
I text my instructor that I’m there and something isn’t adding up. I look up and realize I’m at the wrong address. The instructor gave me the right address, I entered the right address in my car share, yet something was pulling me to this other building.
I rush to the right building and I was upset at myself – no one to blame but me. I’m on my lunch hour, so I’m already limited on time. And I’ve just wasted 15 minutes. So I was very tempted to cancel the appointment. But I didn’t for 2 reasons
1. I made a commitment to the instructor and didn’t want to not hold up my end of the bargain
2. I made a commitment to myself to take actions to feel good about myself and my body
Plus, what was I really gaining by canceling the appointent – it was like a 43 year old throwing a temper tantrum. Nothing good could come from it. So I went to the appointment and was so glad I did
See a lot of times, we blame other people for mistakes we make. When we have no one to blame, we beat ourselves up pretty good. And to be honest, it does us no good. There’s no real value in doing that. Accept what it and move on. When we want things to be different than they are, we cause ourselves unnecessary strife.
So, understand the past for what it is and know that it was manifested from previous thought patterns In every moment, you have the power to choose again. Master your mind and you will see the results in everything you do.
