I think I must have said this a gazillion times but I really like where I’m at right now..its a good place.
Let me tell you how I get here…by here I mean “my good place”
This past week has been kinda sorta tedious..first working week after a 10-day break for me.., It didn’t feel so good going back to work and so my week started off very fast and rough…like a bumpy ride on a bad road in Warri,(where i spent my early years in Nigeria) I galloped .Disappointments came, anger lurked, people pissed me off and sorts of worries that come with a new year and making a new start definitely tried but to say they failed will be understating the matter..they flopped horribly.
As I get older year after year, I know for sure that one of the best things I ‘ve learned is the act of consciousness and that just means getting into the habit of self observation. I used to be an expert critic of others and as soon as I flipped that lens on me, it became a moment of illumination for my life and so I look at me from the outside..and I started listening to me speak , watching me, observing me and correcting me and so far, living a life of consciousness is by far the best thing that has happened to my personal life.
I have the litmus test for me..i know when the rage meter is up, I know where my love-ostat is and it helps me stay grounded..so I literally reprimand myself, I praise me…i complement me..i give me high fives..and i scold me...
I have to tell you its working..its my attempt at living an emotionally balanced life and i'm lovin it.
