In the aftermath of my Attitude post I really started to beat myself up. Judging myself. Putting a great deal of pressure which just put me in a downward spiral of upset. I had to give myself some slack. Having awareness of my attitude does not come in one big awareness. No, it comes in lots, lots and lots of little awareness’s over a span of time. Like the rest of my life!
As I said in the Attitude post our animals are not victims in their lives with us. So there was another place I could take pressure off myself. The cat with me gets to have experiences of living with a human by her choice. And there are times I do not have a great attitude. Mostly she ignores me, as cats do. Dogs and horses are different. They are much more aware of our attitudes good or not so good. Also they are more likely to suck the grey clouds in to create balance.
And everything is just perfect. I believe we live in a big school on this planet. All our experiences have the capability to teach us about ourselves. Same for animals on their level.
I realized I go off to off the rails. Then I get to be aware of the attitude and put myself back on the rails. Remembering attitude is energy. Up or down. No judgment. My judgment just creates upset and stress.
I am responsible for how I am in any given moment. It is a process, it is living in a body. It is a great adventure which we share with our animals.
I appreciate all of of you. Thank you for sharing the journey.
I am in the process of looking into Podcasts and YouTube, exploring how to use them as a way of sharing. A bit intimidating and a steep learning curve. Also more intimate as its my voice, Podcasts, and image YouTube that will be out there. Really scary and could be fun. Little steps grasshopper.
