Captain Your Runaway Ship

I don’t know about you, but recently I have found myself in situations that my mother used to refer to as “Strange things happening completely out of the blue.”

It made me wonder, is this pay back for all those self-help master-your-brain books I bought but never read?

Here’s a few examples of what I’m talking about…

  1. A well planned meeting I was running, ran completely amok.

  2. In one part of my world, immature teenager behavior appeared to be running rampant.

  3. To top this off some weird energy-field or nightmare made my dog jump straight into my lap shivering in fear.

Do these types of things happen to you? I thought so.

What is going on? Are you curious?  I am. But no matter how many maps I draw about it, or dreams I dream about it, I still can’t make head nor tail of it.

So here are some tips on how to sort out what exactly is happening in your world.

  1. Count to 10 to make sure you’re calm, then pinch yourself to make sure you’re alive. If you are, move on to step 2.

  2. Be curious, ask “Do I know what is going on?” If you do, do something about it. If you don’t, move on to step 3.

  3. Pretend you are Brene Brown. Name what you are experiencing. Find out where you hid your feelings. Pull them out, feel them, erase the story you made up about them. Then move on. If you can’t move on, go to step 4.

  4. Write a letter to yourself asking for an answer, if you get one, yay you. If you don’t move on to step 5.

  5. Remind yourself this too will pass. Then go take a nap.

I look forward to things coming back to normal. Until then, have a great rest of your week.  And remember to be love and give love whenever you can. Even when your ship is out of control.
