Be careful you don’t spend the day making gut reactions to things that irritate you. It’s ok to take a moment and contemplate what is going on. You might save yourself some heartache or problems. Be cautious of your mindset, make sure you’re not reacting out of hurt feelings from the past and from others who aren’t even your life today. Take a moment to set the old baggage down and try to understand what’s really going on.
Taking a moment to think before you respond isn’t a sign of weakness or a lack of intelligence. Just the opposite. It’s a sign that you are the one in control of your actions and emotions, not someone else. So don’t be baited into a fight today!
Determine what’s really going on in the situations around you. Ask yourself, is this conflict about me? Or about someone from my past? Don’t try to get involved in arguments that have nothing to do with you in the first place. No taking sides in arguments today! Instead, try to use your calm and compassion to ease the fear and anger of others. You might be more helpful in calming everyone down than getting involved in the actual war of words.
It’s a day to remember that being the leader means being in control of your own emotions and actions. Don’t allow yourself to be manipulated and turned against someone, or others, who don’t deserve it. Whither it be a spat at school, a rumor at work, or an unfounded post on Facebook. Don’t let the emotional energy get a hold of you and add to the fray. Not today!
Double check the facts, make sure the stories are true and accurate BEFORE you hit the share button. Ask yourself, do I want to add to the fear, intolerance, anger and hatred? Or do I want to be an example of Walking Your Talk and show compassion, calm and understanding to all sides. It’s that time of the year to step up your game and put into action your preaching from spirit.
