Daily Nugget #78
i had a shocking revelation yesterday
when i realized
i have been using the same shampoo for
maybe even longer.
cause i like it
it works for my hair.
why reach beyond what we know works for us?
why try something new?
why ‘risk’ it?
i decided i was NOT going to buy the same shampoo this time.
i stood in the shampoo isle forEVER
attempting to find a replacement.
i left without shampoo.
even tho i’m totally OUT at home.
i couldn’t do it.
couldn’t find a suitable match for me.
i KNOW one exists
the stress and strain it took to look at ALL of my options
read ALL of the ingredients
ha! you say.
don’t have that problem?
maybe not with shampoo
but i’m sure it lurks somewhere.
this is all happening in the same week
that i am changing a BIG belief.
i won’t get into the BORing details….
i have noticed that i have a ‘habit’
of thinking a certain way.
i always jump to the same conclusion
it’s not that great.
have i always thought this way?
oh, the beliefs.
that elusive operating system (EOS)
the thing that works best for me is song and dance.
whenever that inner Eeyore kicks in:
‘nothing ever works out ok’
‘this is never going to be possible’
‘i can’t do that’
i counter it with song and dance.
sing to your Eeyore
the other side of the story!
‘everything works out beautifully!’
‘all things are possible’
‘of course you can do it!!’
this totally works.
i have been singing and dancing all week.
every time i see Eeyore creeping around the corner
i bust in to song.
it’s actually quite fun 😀
and then yesterday
i heard this guy say,
‘fear is the only thing that gets smaller as you run closer’
yay! freakin’ yay!
along with my song and dance
i am running
(often in place
cause that’s where my brain is).
that guy is fur shur right.
fear just gets smaller.
who’d a thought.
now i leave you with happy, skipping thoughts
uplifted and smiling
knowing that your inner Eeyore cannot rain on your parade
(unless you let him)
that YOU have the POWER
to change YOUR
ps. buy a different shampoo.
