Speaking of excuses They are trickly little things. Sometimes we get stuck in excuse cycles, so much so that we don’t even realise they are excuses any more. This week I had a massive realisation about how DRAMA was holding me back. You know that I’m a massive fan of flearning (learning through my failure) so I wrote about it for you (and for me). Check it out HERE.
Speaking of drama Think for a moment about the drama queens in your life. Are you a drama queen (or king) yourself? Is there always something getting in the way of your goals – is it always a big, melodramatic hoo haa? If you are someone who wants to create change, particularly if that change is either – change at ANY level be it within yourself, to address a dire community issue, or to bring more productivity to your team… ANY change invites an opportunity for drama. (in fact, if you think about it, if you are so inclined any aspect of LIFE invites an opportunity for drama.
If drama is your currency, the way you get attention you might just want to do some thinking around that. Drama CAN be used as humour or to deflect a situation, but at its core, over the long term it’s really a pretty unhealthy and unproductive way to live. If you really and truly want to create change drama is not your friend right now. If drama is always in your life, perhaps the common denominator is actually you. I found this excellent article about reducing drama in your life. Check it out here – yeah, I know you’re accessing it to help a friend. That’s cool.
This week I’ve really snuggled in close to some of the things that matter most to me. Family, creativity, health… These were the things on my ‘what matters’ list that I really needed to give a bit of lurve to. And as the week draws to a close (or, is it as the new week begins) I’m very pleased that I put in the effort.
I believe that we live in a world where there are so many opportunities for shortcuts to ‘happy’ that we get our priorities skewed and reach for what is easy and quick (i.e. happy) forgetting about more sustainable states of being- contentment, satisfaction, achievement.
