No matter how incredibly ‘aware’ we are
No matter how developed we are in our craft
We still are human.
We still have the ‘potential’ to react in a way that makes us realise –
some shit just doesn’t leave us.
Because its our history.
We were a player in someone elses’ learning
Someone elses’ ‘experience’.
The thing is – what we sometimes do…
Is get sucked in – and repeat the behaviour – the reaction…
We have moved seriously far – in fact we can safely say…
we HAVE ABSOLUTELY moved on.
So its not regressing.
Its certainly not a ‘fault’ in us.
It is an experience
That plays out again and again.
Yet we still in some way, have the potential
to go back to where we were from.
Now I want you to realise how COOL it is – that you react.
Bizarre – yet I want you to look at it this way.
If you go BACK to that situation, and you have no other way of reacting…..
Then it means you haven’t had to face that SHIT since then.
Now thats SERIOUSLY cool.
It means you have made changes that became choices and situations
that have not reappeared – because you didn’t go back there for more.
Yes – you did. And you moved the hell on.
Now here’s the kicker.
YOU have – others may not have.
They are still eliciting the same response.
They may have not managed to elicit it from YOU in a while.
Yet like a toddler who knows you have chocky biscuits….
They are still CHOOSING to try.
When you sit in your experience
And realise you are maybe – overreacting – to what is in front of you…
Realise its like an old bit of laundry
Find the source – find it stuffed in the back of the old couch….
Just kick it to the curb and realise you have found some old scar, some old experience. And you just smile
Because you have found a potential stinker that was still hidden
That you had missed for a while
And you choose you.
You ACT. QUIT reacting.
Unless of course
You like the habit.
Now thats a whole other blog.
Responses repeated become a habit.
If you relive something and react
And Realise you are reacting in an old way
Yet you continue to react with gusto.
You will keep finding stinky laundry
Because you haven’t made the decision
To do a serious clear out.
And you can do it easily.
Dont pull that face.
You just Let that shit go.
Its not a ‘thank you’ thing.
Its a seeya.
Thats what quitting is.
Just DO IT.
