I choice to note, but not heed my own drama.
Like most adults, I come pre-packaged with conditioned thinking and thought patterns.
My choice is to not heed the drama and baggage that accompanies my conditioned thinking and thought patterns.
However, I have found that it is a choice I have to make again and again!
It is not a ‘one-off’ choice or decision I make.
It is one I find I have to make as often as the drama and baggage presents itself in my consciousness.
However long and however often, each time, I am compelled to make the same choice.
Why? Because I have come to know – that I AM more than the sum of my thoughts, fears and ego insecurities.
So whenever I am blindsided by an onslaught of fearful, insecure or angry thoughts,
I take a deep breath, dig deeper, and become ‘the observer’ of the ensuing drama.
But I refuse to be sucked in.
I feel the emotion,
I know the stress
and I experience the effects in my body.
But I refuse to be sucked into the drama.
I AM more than the sum of my thoughts, fears and ego insecurities.
This conviction causes me to make this choice again and again, however many times I have to.
Perhaps this is what it means to persevere and to fight the good fight of faith.
