What are you tolerating? Putting up with? STOMACHING?
An Illuminating Question that LIGHTENS.
This question was discussed at length this past week, as we explored, discovered, and investigated the various things in our lives that are WEIGHING us down. Things from dust behind the refrigerator to people in our lives; from bad hair days to our own thoughts and beliefs.
I promise you that as you take the time to be honest, be brave, look deep and write down at least 50 things that you are STOMACHING, you will be brought to a place where you can see, feel, experience and even taste your ‘lite.’
The things that you are STOMACHING are in your WAY.
Imagine all your tolerations as stones, twigs, and rocks – maybe even fallen trees – which you have essentially placed (tossed or thrown) onto your path; that you now unconsciously maneuver around.
These stumbling blocks slow us down and sap our energy. As you clear your path, you will build your ‘clear sailing muscle.’ It will become increasingly easier to recognize and to say no to anything that would slow you down.
Have Second Helpings.
Let the weight and heaviness of your tolerations go. Create an airy and spacious path. Have second helpings of fun and happiness.
What are YOU stomaching? What’s weighing YOU down?
