Stay Right There!

We all experience moments of elation within our lives. A child is born, we get the promotion, the doctor calls with good news about a recent test, or perhaps we wake up to a new way of thinking that allows us to forgive and move on.We all experience moments of elation within our lives. A child is born, we get the promotion, the doctor calls with good news about a recent test, or perhaps we wake up to a new way of thinking that allows us to forgive and move on.

I call these “High Energy Highlights.” 

It’s during these times we have this sort of reverence for life where in that moment nothing can trigger us, bring us down, or keep us up at night ruminating over the same things… over, and over, and over. Our mindset only contains this adoration for life, a knowing of the fragility of it, and a realization of what is truly important.

The thought of reverting back to familiar ways of thinking and being in these moments is utterly foreign….yet for some of us, inevitably it happens.

Maybe it’s days, weeks, or months that pass by, but eventually we find ourselves falling into worn out ways of thinking and behaving:

  • Someone says or does something that sets us off.
  • We become impatient about the little things.
  • We hop back into the judgment arena where fingers are pointed at ourselves and others.

During those sacred moments of elation where we are connected to our best selves…why do we revert?

My guess is we go back to what is familiar and as a result of being familiar…it’s easy.

  • It’s easier to expect a loved one to act the way you would… than to meet them where they are. It’s easier to gossip about others “screwed up lives” than to acknowledge
  • It’s easier to gossip about others “screwed up lives” than to acknowledge where we see some of these same elements in our own lives.It’s easier to let the little things set us
  • It’s easier to let the little things set us off than to acknowledge what is really at the source of our frustration.

But though it may be easier… the ones we are cheating our ourselves.

When we are able to fully take responsibility for our lives, we are then able to cultivate these good feelings on a more regular basis.

How cool would it be to release the need to control? To look inward rather than outward? To experience high energy highlights more often?

It’s simple. We just have to remember.

  • Remember what you told yourself when your child was born.The feelings you felt when the doctor called with good news.▪ What changed in your life when you were able to forgive yourself and others.”Stay right there” with those thoughts, feelings, and beliefs.

Welcome

Hi I’m Meg. I love helping empathic people who sometimes “feel too much” calm their head, hearts, and homes through my courses and books. Ultimately we all want to feel good in our bodies, relationships, and with the work we do in this world. When we remove the roadblocks that exist on the road to feeling the way we want to feel life tend to flow easier.
