Does This Sound Like You?
Am I the only person who did not know that each individually foil-wrapped Dove dark chocolate has an inspiring message to brighten your day?
We were recently on a COVID-delayed trip to Sonoma wine country. It was a great treat when our tasting at one vineyard finished with port and a dark chocolate candy. Not only was the port yummy, but the message inside of my wrapper said "When life isn't going right, go left." It was submitted by Haylea S. from South Dakota.
My candy wrapper message struck me as it reminded me of something that drives me ABSOLUTELY CRAZY: people complaining about things, but never doing anything to change the situation!! Eckhart Tolle describes it as: “When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation or accept it. All else is madness.”
Mindless worry and complaining is a complete waste of energy. We all have the ability to individually, or with help, leave, change or accept our situations.
Think of life like reading a book. Days, weeks, and even years repeat themselves ... until you turn the page!
This Week's Focus:
