Where is your focus?
We direct our focus to the things we want others to be doing – and noticing what they are not doing that we feel like they should be.
However, learning to direct the focus back to you and what you can do, what you should be doing, and what you can control, will change your outlook. When you can learn to accept what you can control, it will help drastically. You can control 3 things.
1. Your own thoughts.
2. Your own actions.
3. Your own feelings.
When you can recognize that your thoughts and feeling are very intertwined, you will also realize that your actions are result of those thoughts/feelings.
For example – I used to be so annoyed that no one was cleaning up breakfast before leaving for school. Dishes were left everywhere, and whatever we’d used was just left. I was so annoyed everyone just expected me to always clean up after them.
Well, I decided that I’d make more of an effort to get everyone to help pick things up. Then, once most of the kids are out the door, I take time to finish tidying the kitchen. It has made a world of difference! I know it’s a small, silly thing, but for me, it mades a huge difference.
