Happy Mantra Tuesday!
The other day, I was rushing back home to make it to an in-person appointment and got a call from the person I was supposed to be meeting.
They told me they’d decided to go to a movie with their friends instead and that they couldn’t make our meeting (which was happening in about an hour).
I was seething.
I had cut a trip to see my extended family short so I could make it back to town for this.
It had been on the calendar for weeks.
I felt so disrespected, annoyed and angry.
I wanted to lash out from my Ego, but thankfully I said, “Next time if you choose to cancel our appointment, you need to let me know the day before.”
We rescheduled and after we hung up, I took a deep breath and remembered that in every moment, even the ones the frost our cookies like this one, we always, always have a choice.
People will be people.
Not every situation will go your way.
But you can always choose.
This month’s mantra: I choose happiness and happiness chooses me.
When happiness becomes something you choose as opposed to something someone gives you, you’re in your own power.
The outside world can do its thang and you’re still alright within yourself.
Try it and let me know how it works for you this month!
How to use it:
In quiet moments where you feel fears rising up in your chest, close your eyes, take a deep, cleansing breath and say the mantra above. Say it three times with deep feeling. Notice how you feel.
