Sometimes what you are looking for is right under your nose!
Here’s what happened:
I usually keep my finger-nail clippers in my medicine cabinet. I looked quickly in the medicine cabinet three or four times and did not see them. When I couldn’t find them, I immediately assumed my spouse or kids took them and did not return them after they were finished. I asked them if they had taken them, and everyone said no. When I couldn’t get what I wanted right then, I allowed something of little significance to steal my happiness. There was a shift in my mood because the nail clippers were not in the particular spot in the medicine cabinet. I was focused on using them immediately. This reminded me that as adults we allow small things to interfere with our happiness. When something doesn’t happen for us immediately or we get an answer that we don’t like, there is a shift in our mood. A shift in our mindset. I encourage you to take time today to slow down and reexamine your habits and mindset. Ask yourself, “What habits have I formed that may not be serving my highest and greatest good?” and “How significant is this issue that I am allowing to alter my mood?” This is one of the tools I teach my clients. Later on, my spouse checked the medicine cabinet, and the nail clippers were there all along, right where they usually are. Could my family be playing mind games? It’s possible.
Have you ever had an experience like that? If so, I would love to hear your story.
