Today was not fun.
I was uncomfortable, emotional, and moody.
The cause, most likely, is cutting back on my sugar and alcohol consumption this past week.
But it wasn’t a problem. I didn’t resist.
So much pain comes from resisting what is.
Feeling bad allowed me to access my emotions. Riding those emotions, I was able to gain fresh insights into some family dynamics.
I came to a valuable realization about my in-laws.
Something that could improve my relationships with them for years to come.
something I’ll share another time…
Feeling frustrated, I tackled a marketing problem that kept coming up for my business.
I gained a deeper level of clarity that will allow me to move forward more effectively with a project.
All in all, I’d say today was a pretty good day. Especially since I felt like shit all day.
We don’t always need to feel good. Sometimes being uncomfortable, and downright unhappy has its value.
