6 months ago, if I had experienced the week that I've been having this week, I would have felt sick to my stomach, shut down, and cried non-stop. Calvin would be a mess as well, because he picks up on my energy and my stress level.
You know what I did this morning, instead? I got an unsettling phone call and I immediately put on a meditation and the pit in my stomach went away. I repeated some affirmations, read my bible and Alanon daily literature, worked my butt off to some Beyonce, and laughed with my son.
THERE ISN'T A PERSON IN THIS WORLD THAT CAN CONTROL YOUR HAPPINESS. I'll repeat that for those who didn't hear me. THERE ISN'T A PERSON IN THIS WORLD THAT CAN CONTROL YOUR HAPPINESS. You have control over your emotions. You don't need to run away when you get scared. You can face that demon and tell it to F off. You've got the God of the universe on your side. And you have skills to demand peace and balance in your life. You know your worth, you know your heart, and your good intentions, just claim it. Then go face your fears.
