Circle of Trust (CoT)

For the COT, I wanted start with a quote that kind of hits home for me lately.

“Eventually all pieces fall into place.  Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moment, and know that everything happens for a reason.

I used to let things get me down a lot and would become depressed and stay in the funk for a long time.  I’ve gotten much better at not letting the negative things that happen get me down as much.  I still do have times when I let the crap get me down like earlier this week with the stress at work and things in my personal life.  I have to make a conscious effort to recognize when this is happening and to tell myself that a lot of things I can’t control but the one area that I do have control is how I let it affect my mood and behavior.  I felt myself getting bogged down in the med so to speak earlier this week and could have easily allowed myself to give in and fall into the trap of that downward spiral into depression.  I remember my drive home from work, I realized what was happening and reflected on the positive things that had happened that day and also if some of these negative things were out of my control and in those case I need to let it go.  I came home and sat out on the patio in the backyard reflecting on these things while watching the dogs play and the birds in the trees.  I’ll be damned.  It worked.

My challenge to you is this.  The next time you find yourself wading through the crap that we all come across in our daily lives.  Don’t let it get you down.  Focus on the positive things that happened that day and for the things that someone else did or said that are out of your control, let it go.  You can’t control it.
