Don't Rain on My Parade

In life we always come across misanthropes and they can truly rain on our parade.....if we let them...Unfortunately, life is always about passing tests and if we don't pass them gracefully, I believe that we must repeat them until we do....these tests come on every level of our lives from the small petty issues to big life issues and we must be ready and in the right frame of mind to be able to best handle our "challenges"...The trick is to be in that peaceful place mentally so that we are not bristled by people or circumstances and allow them to get us off of our path...and believe me sometimes we will handle things gracefully and then there are times when our heads may spin like the exorcist etc....need I say more?! OK, I believe that if we are able to have some down time first thing in the morning before we begin our day of "interactions" which usually begins the testing process we can build some inner peace, quiet confidence, meditate and pray, stretch our minds and our bodies to create that flexibility that we will need for the rest of the day...If we are able to start our day from a good and peaceful place and we are able to reflect upon that and draw from those reserves we have created for ourselves then we are bound to have more successful interactions throughout our day.....and if and when we don't, remember that the words and actions of others are reflections of them and their mental and physical state and not ours...when people are just unpleasant and nasty it is most likely a direct reflection of what is going on in their interior and not in any way a reaction to us, so don't take others words and actions personally because it isn't about us, it is about them! Let's stay on top of our game people, we can be successful and enjoy our own parade whether or not those around us are enjoying theirs! :-)
