I am always inspired by how easily a reframe can alter our inner terrain, which in turn alters our reality.
In one of my classes, I teach this chronology: thoughts ---> emotions ---- > actions ----> reality.
What we think affects our emotions, the way we feel, which in turn affects our actions, the way we act, which magically affects our reality, our life.
I VERY MUCH believe in this and its summary too, which is: our thoughts affect our lives.
This is why love these words send to me by a friend yesterday, after reading about this whole adventure.
"Thoroughly enjoying it…and thinking oh my goodness, if it’s driving you a bit bonkers, those of us even further down the type A/righteousness tunnel would be done for! Good job practicing patience and tolerance and acceptance of life in a place that operates on different values! They’ve built in sick leave and vacation and bereavement leave and wellness time into their work…you just didn’t know it was part of the contract…"
Freaking brilliant! A built-in, unspoken system. One which, like so many here, I have not been privy to, until well, I get to live it.
I love it.
