Last month I focused on an experiment to better understand myself. I will be honest, it was a challenge to watch my language because, despite the fact I always try to do that, I found myself still saying things that weren’t designed to move me forward. I did fall into some griping, whining and complaining, but I caught myself and did it a lot less. I am better at neutralizing negatives and noticing positives. And by setting intentions, I find that I am more motivated to get things done. (and this is a great advancement!) For me, this past month’s activities were beneficial. I have a policy, I never ask other people (clients, family, friends) to do anything I haven’t or wouldn’t do myself. If you tried the exercises (any or all), how did you do? What did you discover?
This month I am going to explore a book that I really enjoy and has also helped me look at myself and how I can be a better person. The book is The Four Agreements by Don Miquel Ruiz. I read the book the first time several years ago, but I really wasn’t ready for it. I read it again in the past year and I found it to be very thought provoking and it encouraged me to pay more attention and be more fully present.
Each week in May, starting on May 8, I will focus on 1 of the 4 agreements. I hope you will join me and find something inspiring and/or beneficial in the discussions. As always, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions/comments that you don’t want to leave here.
Here’s to an excellent May! Namaste!
