ME” Monday® 3-14-2022 Taking Back Control

In times of crisis, what might our view of the world look like?

If what we see seems confusing, how might we know what to do?

Sometimes it may feel like the road in front of us won’t take us anywhere and we feel lost.

How might we untangle the mess to find the right path so we can move forward rather than standing still?

Our universe sometimes can feel out of control with emotions like fear, anxiety, uncertainty, despair, hopelessness, chronic worry, and/or feeling powerless.

As we contemplate what an average day is like, whether we’re sitting at our computers working, connecting online, or find ourselves constantly on the road for appointments, how might it feel to stop every once in a while, to look out a window or step outside and appreciate nature?

Everything in nature that surrounds us can be in view if we choose to see it.

This world began with nature, no technology, heck, no toilet paper! Nature has endured time. It has suffered fires, floods, tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes, and other disasters; it always bounces back.

We are nature; we too can prevail. The power is within every one of us. Life continues from one day to the next. It may just feel a little different on occasion.

How we choose to change our perception can power up our ability to spring back on a better path.

In Life University’s Compassionate Integrity Training program, emotional awareness is explained as ‘when we can have the ability to be cognizant of the ups and downs of our mental experiences on a moment-to-moment basis to better understand the difference between beneficial and hurtful states’.

How can being aware of our emotions affect our mindfulness of how others are feeling also?

We can feel more confident that each new urgency can pass calmly if we recognize that who we choose to be can help us overcome the hard times we face.

We can have the capability to stay connected with who we are at the core, focus on what’s positive, accept that every challenge we face during any crisis can be another thing we overcome, and we can be okay.

The more we focus on staying linked with who we are and who we want to be, the more in control we can feel.

We can all have 100% control of our inner power.

If we’re feeling like we’re not there yet, let’s start with some “ME” time to take control back.

How might implementing this “ME” time routine enable us to feel more on top of things with clarity when we find ourselves in a predicament?

“ME” Monday® was put on our weekly schedule so we can devote a little time for some self-reliance, some “ME” time, at least one day each week.
