“Your ultimate goal in life is to become your best self. Your immediate goal is to get on the path that will lead you there.”
David Viscott, M.D.
You've heard that when someone annoys or angers you, it's about you. Is it is a reflection of something about you that is actually annoying or angering you.
I never fully understood this concept until I had kids.
All of my children are a mirror of me and teach me on a daily basis; but three of my five kids are an incredible undeniable mirror of me -- so much so that it's actually funny. Ironically, they are the three that look just like me as well.
I've noticed that when I get frustrated with them, it's always really something about myself. It's a mirror of me.
"Phoenix! Sit still!"
(Uhhhhh. Oh yeah I am totally vata and never stop moving.)
"Madison! I was speaking! Please don't interrupt."
(Uhhhhh. Oh yeah. She got the talking gene – from me.)
"Dakota! Please sit down when you eat honey."
(Uhhhhh. Oh yeah. It is just this year in this lifetime that I have finally taught myself to sit down while I eat.)
Notice today if something that annoys you is really a reflection of something in yourself that you aren't so psyched about.
And once you have that awareness, you're free! You can shift the behavior in a heartbeat.
Or not. Or you can just accept it with love.
Have the best day ever!
