Write, Burn, and Learn To Destroy Toxicity

I am trying to honor impressions I get about the posts I should write.  And so I share the following as it is happening in real time, right now, today.

I have just been reminded of the importance of understanding that challenges are truly a part of our mortal experience.  It is what we think and do as a result of these challenges that makes the difference.

I woke up this morning feeling extremely irritable.  It was compounded when an interaction with someone did not go well at all.  I wanted to close off, to ignore it, or to go to the other extreme and unload my frustrations on this person.

I went to my exercise class.  With thoughts swirling around in my mind, I knew what I needed to do the second I got home.  I needed to write, burn, and learn.  I have practiced this skill for 9 years now (as of 2020).  I know how it works. I’ve seen miracles in me as a result of it.  I’ve witnessed hearts be softened because I was at peace during difficult conversations.  And so I committed to do it.

I know that the voices are telling you you don’t have time to do this or it won’t work or it won’t help.  I invite you to try it anyway.  Create a space where tough conversations can happen without attendant negative emotions and energy.

 

 

It matters!

Life is full of challenges–mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual. Being able to live from the wisdom gained from our challenges and mistakes is what enables us to become the best versions of ourselves. As a young mother of five, I was a mess of depression and perfectionism. Now as Nana to 5, my mess has become wisdom and propelled me forward with a passion for helping people show up the way they really want to!
