It’s not always what it seems!
by Rianna Poskin
If you look at the photo above it looks very peaceful and serene. You would never know that while I was trying to capture a beautiful landscape and inspire health I was getting told off!
I parked on the road close to this field and one driver was annoyed that I made the road smaller. I’m a pretty sensitive person and I hold onto things for way too long!
I’ve gotten to the point in my life now where I have to do some mental work to get over other people’s problems. I try not to take on other people’s negativity but it’s hard when it hits you at the core.
What has helped me, which I will pass along to you, is that I have to assume that when other people try to put us down it’s usually because there’s disturbance within themselves. It often has nothing to do with us but we take the brunt of it.
Moving forward I hope that you can use The Dalai Lama’s message of reacting with love and compassion no matter what the situation.
As I whispered a little, “What the”? Under my breath, I exhaled a long “Namaste” to the driver that was pissed off at me!
Onward and upward!
Inhale love, exhale pain…or in this case “getting flipped the bird”!
