Human nature is to seek out the path of least resistance. We often look for the quick fix in lieu of the long-term results. When I really ponder on the question posed: “What makes my life easier?” I have to say it’s when I don’t listen to my baser instincts and do what I know I need to do. I don’t necessarily mean in the moment for a specific circumstance, but rather in terms of my life’s direction. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not all self righteous here like I actually do that. Just sayin’ wouldn’t it be easier if I did?
Think about it! Making big decisions would be a mute point. Again I’m not talking about picking the red vs the blue one of something. Just by repeated, consistent action, people would know you were steadfast and at least some wouldn’t waste their time acting like a mosquito in your airspace. People you do want in your space would be there and respectful or at least also working toward their better selves. How can I say that you ask? Because you aren’t tolerating disrespect or you are able to tolerate some if the motives are sincere in wanting to change it. Everyone slips.
My life used to be a lot easier. I still had baggage, I still had a job and a life and responsibilities. I was still human, but at that time I was practicing more tolerance, patience, humility. I am finally at a place where I am feeling less emotional fatigue and more ability to practice being my better self. Prayer and mindfulness help guide me to where I need to go. I’m hoping life continues to get “easier.”
