If you need inspiration, take a deep breath in and feel your lungs expand. That breath is life giving and breathing is the key to everything. Bringing us into the present moment.
We spend so much time thinking about the past, the future, holding grudges, judging people by our own standards instead of just letting them be.
Do not take things personally! You have your part to play in life and sometimes you will meet people who will rub you the wrong way. I was out the other night with my husband and a few friends and friends of friends. Somehow one of the couples started talking about porn and blow jobs. The girl sitting opposite my husband looks him straight in the eye and says to him, ” I like porn, I like blow jobs, ” then she realizes that I was listening and opens her eyes all big and looks at me as if she is all innocent and butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth. Now in French we would call her “une salope” which I always translated as a slut but a better translation is a HOE [sic.]
In actual fact, bitchy me says I should have compassion for a girl like her, who is wounded and cannot face her pain and have a normal relationship with a normal guy. She needs to go for someone who is probably emotionally unavailable or perhaps she is competitive and wants to go in for the kill. Am I bad! I should follow my own advice and not take it personally.
I don’t like the disrespect towards me and my marriage but really if you do act that way you are showing overs that you have no self respect. Let’s face it, we all make mistakes and act in ways that don’t become us. I can’t say it enough. If you are going to act that way, feel every moment of it, don’t block any of the emotions that you stir inside yourself. Once you live through how destructive the behavior is to yourself, there is not way you can continue.
