Quit Giving your Power Away

Control Your Power

We have ALL done it. We had the POWER and we GAVE it AWAY!  Why would do that after working so hard to get ahead?

Well, let’s look at it.  You were lied to … Cheated on …Ignored … Talked Down To …. Emotionally Abused ….Physically Abused …. Rejected …. Left Behind … Pushed into unknown waters …  etc.  All of this is traumatic and can be life altering.

Do You Agree?

You Were a KID! You didn’t even have a fully formed frontal lobe. You were physically unable to have critical thinking!

With that being said, why are we still caught up in the past?  As an adult, we can talk to our inner child and explain that everything that happened was not their fault.  That life happens and we need to move on.  We say, “You’ll be stronger for this.” 

Remember all of the DRAMA…. this is because of our egos and underdeveloped brain. We truly believed that we were the center of the world and everything DID revolve around us.  With that being said, when we experienced anything disturbing, as a young person, we BLEW it up!  We didn’t know how to handle it, what it meant or that it was about anyone else but ourselves.  Some of us had a great support network that took our hand and guided us, some of us turned to faith, some of us tried to find answers in unlikely places.  

BIG Question ?????????????????

Why are we still living with that outdated, immature, under-developed and exaggerated thinking?  We can rewrite that story with clearer more mature eyes.  Yes, your parents divorced, but in hindsight (as an adult) you may see it differently than the child that felt alone, abandoned and pulled in two different directions.  Yes, other kids were mean and said some horrible things to you, but as an adult, you see that you were misunderstood and those quirks are your “superpowers”! 

I could go on, but you see where I am going here. Right?

God is life.  God is life in action.  The best way to say, “I love you, God,” is to live your life doing your best.  The best way to say, “Thank you, God,” is by letting go of the past and living in the present moment, right here and now…..Letting go of the past means you can enjoy the dream that is happening right now.

Excerpt from The Four Agreements, Don Miguel Ruiz

Take back the control of your LIFE!  You OWN that sucker!  Be the author of your story and make it incredible, full of value and something to be proud of!
