When I am about to deal with a potentially stressful situation like one happening this weekend, I start thinking about it before it even happens.
Does that happen to you? What’s up with that?
Wellllll, since I can’t avoid this particular situation, it’s possible that it’s about me thinking it’s a good idea to get ready for it by putting on some so-called protective armor in case things go South quickly and I need to deflect what’s being said and not take it to heart. As always, I remind myself over and over to stay open to the possibilities of a dialogue. To breathe and to chill and to keep my powder dry as they say.
Since I don’t know what’s going to be said and I certainly don’t know what the reaction of others will be until I am with them, I need to have more faith in myself and my abilities to handle it, right?
I need to be brave and listen to the smooth voice of Sara Bareilles sing her fabulous song, “Brave” which always inspires me! Plus the video is fun to watch!!
Happy Friday to you and may the spirit of this song carry you through today and all of your wonderful weekend!!
