Day One again: Discipline
Today, a whole thunderstorm came along to my experience.
First, an arrogant customer who wanted to play the bargain game. I felt bullied and intimidated. Although I held myself on talking to others about it, I couldn't help it wanting to play it in my thought. I really had to discipline my thought to not go there. And it wasn't complaint exactly, but self justification-complaint's first cousin...
Then, my daughter called: "Mom, I just had a car accident, but I am OK, the car isn't, it was not my fault though!...".
Now how you deal with this, in a non-complaint period?"Honey, I am in a mental diet right now, I can't take this!?"
Time for more prayer. On the way to the accident spot, I was trying to gather any thought I could about God and His Mother presence, where I was not. Then everything got taking care of, Natalia is fine, and everybody is safe.
So, I am grateful that Natalia is safe, I am grateful that my gratitude muscle is getting stronger and my complaint muscle is about to die...
