I woke up to a dark-gray, iced-over morning…with a headache…and deadlines…and too little sleep.
Commence Pity-fest 2011. Starring me.
Then, I did something I rarely do first thing in the morning. I checked my feed-reader and saw this post—Totally Stuck or Having a Blast—from John Winsor about how he and his son’s got stuck…in a snowstorm…in awful traffic…on their way to ski…then their alternator died…and it took 2 hours for the tow truck to arrive…and they had the time of their lives.
Circumstances are opportunities to define outcomes, they are not the outcomes themselves.
Then, I meditated and watched this…
I still had a headache. I was still tired. The weather still sucked.
But, I was okay with the world (could also have been the latte kicking in).
So, I’m wondering:
Do you have your own mechanism to step outside of yourself and assess whether you are being led by your world or you’re leading it?
What is that mechanism?
And, how do YOU re-frame and move on, once it’s been triggered?
