3/27/12 – Take a step back


“Sometimes, it’s ok to take a step back and admit you’re being ridiculous.”

Isn’t it funny how we lose track of ourselves sometimes? We just go go go and forgot to take a step back and re-evaluate. Why am I doing this? Why did I say that? What’s my goal here? What am I trying to accomplish? What do I want and need? Why do I want or need this? Am I moving in a positive direction? How is my behavior affecting those around me? Am I acting like myself?

You know that saying, “Check yourself before you wreck yourself”? haha Well, I recently had to check myself and ask myself these questions. Emotions were running high and I had become someone that I don’t like being. I lost track of why I was even acting the way I was. I forgot what my true end goal was. I was being RIDICULOUS! After re-evaluation, not only am I back on track but I feel SO much better. I’ve gone back to my inner peace. After some much needed “soul-talk,” I again feel grounded and no longer feel ridiculous.

It’s ok to be knocked off your “pride” pedestal and pour some ice water on your ego. It doesn’t even have anything to do with pride and ego at the core, it has to do with getting carried away and lost in habitually behavior and we all do it. So next time you feel like your ride on life’s highway is going a little too fast and getting a little out of control, go in reverse for a second and “check yourself.” It’s okay to admit you’re being a little ridiculous, it’s what learning and growing is all about. Please click the image below and read the article on “soul-talk.” It really helped me get to this place.
