FLOOD WATER FEARS
Our fears start to encroach like flood water. Once they start and you don’t make efforts to stop them, they can begin seamlessly to take over your life. You feel out of CONTROL , then anger, bitterness and resentment are given free reign to party in your overburdened, tired and stressed head.
On Friday I was outside in the lashing windy rain, digging rubble and sand, shifting from one pile to another, attempting – with a degree of SUCCESS, to change the direction of flood water.
Flood waters are muddy, full of floating unhelpful debris that enter into your life uninvited and settle in your home, your mind and heart.
Shifting all the baggage we carry around in our lives, especially after a breakdown of a relationship is mentally harder, scarier AND resolvable. I refuse to let those fears flood in, to allow them to introduce unhelpful, resentful and uncontrolled wreckage into my life.
Do I allow those fears to remind me with any bitterness that I do not have a partner to support me. I am not tempted to wish my marriage had been better and that my X should have been here, instead I have LEARNT to let that unhelpful stuff go.
Shifting baggage in our lives is hard, we do not always feel quite as strong or prepared as we would like. We know that staying physically and emotionally strong will help the outcome, rather than leaving the detritus, the flood of fear and the end result to consume our lives.
BACK IN CONTROL
So prepare and gather up your fantastic life tools to keep yourself strong. Have the CONFIDENCE in your ability, be kind to yourself, respectful and ultimately you begin to commit to daily positive housekeeping of the mind and the energy in your home.
