It's all about training our brains to think about why we stress, worry, or justify things that we can not change. Listen to the last part of that "things that we can not change." I would take the issue out of the equation and I would say that over and over. Why waste time stressing and trying to make others adapt to what we feel is right when they are not willing to change. Wasting time on petty or negative things only hurts ourselves. I figure that its healthier to use that wasted time on something positive like excising, writing, playing sports or music, or doing something for someone else that would make their life easier. Paying it forward is a great substitute over stressing about things we cant change or reacting to negative situations.
Feeling stuck in the "Well of the Souls"
I guess the best way to describe what I was feeling was the picture below from "Raiders." There are times still to this day that I snap because I am not perfect. That is why I am writing this. Things build up inside and come out at odd times. I take responsibility for allowing something that I have control over get me down. Down enough to sit in the shadows for a while now. I took some time to really gather my thoughts. Yeah it got bad and the "poor me" came out which I thought was long gone. I also feel that I allowed it to bother me so much that worrying about it bother me too. You get it the old downward spiral of the "poor me" attitude is never a good thing.
So what did I do? "I kicked that olde flop of mine, Mr. Skint Me square in the fanny which translates to "I kicked that old friend of mine, Mr. Poor Me, square in the ass." It took some time and a lot of the wife mostly kicking my ass. She is amazing....at bugging me until i finally breakdown. I have a lot of people I can talk to both here and out there in DDP Yoga land. Without all of those people I would have packed it in a lot longer. So instead of sitting on my heels I turned my negitive shitty attitude into something positive. I used that anger for good and was able to get back to where i needed to be. I got there by going back to the place where it all started for me, Team DDP Yoga, Facebook, and DDP Radio. I mean reading all the new stories from people who were jacked up and ready to start the program was so damn inspiring. I was reminded of how I felt when I started and I realized it was time to kick that shit.
