Reflection and Release
How do you "Never Give Up", on situations you have little control of?
Reflection, and Release.
My dad saw the trials and tribulations I was going through in early 2010.
His advice was clear. I needed mental and emotional "time outs." He kept saying, "Take time to take care of you."
It was a great lesson to learn. I immediately noticed that "words" weren't necessary for every single situation. It felt good not to try to control the outcome. And by allowing myself to let go, I was allowing myself to place ownership on others, instead of owning their successes and failures.
Know this! I never gave up. I just had to take a few steps to the side, to see the bigger picture. And to assess how I was needed, if at all. I was better prepared when I was needed.
The second part of 2010 learning was to walk away from what doesn't concern me. Let people do what they do. If it doesn't effect me, why let it affect me? (or vice versa..lol)
2011 brings more of the same. Family, work, life changes. I still want good things for my family. I will NEVER GIVE UP helping them, and allowing them to help me.
Happy New Year 2011.
