Stick with me here, for a second.
Sometimes it’s a bit funny how the world works, seems a bit funny anyway, until we take a look under the hood, so to speak and view the majesty of the entire Universe in all its simple magnificence.
So I’ve got a Facebook page for A Life Of Light, and I’ve also got one for myself. I don’t have a huge number of friends, but a fair number of folks I get a chance to read what they write about in my news feed.
Yesterday I realized that so many of the things that people are writing about – the things that show up in my news feed anyway, are angry, or mean-spirited or just kind of snotty, so I decided that I did not need more of that in my life, for any reason whatsoever, so I started blocking and deleting and hiding and in general getting rid of stuff that was just plain ugly.
Frankly, I am all for people expressing their opinions about things, but that is their opinion; I realized that I don’t need to be reading about it.
And I felt a lot better and a lot cleaner inside. 2 thumbs up.
And then, interestingly enough, there was some attention giving space in my day. Space that could be filled up with something more positive and today – Shazzam – a new person with great ideas showed up to fill in that attention space with lots of positive things to say.
Her name is Caren Baginski and she wrote a great article about letting go of things that are not serving you, specifically she talks about letting go of some words. Here is a link to her post so you can read about it too when you click this link —>> Unlearning 2000 Words
She has really good ideas, and even better, she illustrates a way to help people let go of things that are not serving them. Very powerful stuff.
I don’t know Caren personally, she is a member of a program I belong to called Trailblazer. But the fact is, that when I let go of stuff that made me feel bad inside – the junk on Facebook – some new space opened up and a great new positive person with great positive ideas showed up to fill that space.
I so appreciate the way the Universe works, and I am so grateful for that realization.
