This week was one with lots of turbulence. Lots of last minute changes to my schedule. Those last minute changes meant that the balance in my life got tipped. Sometimes for the best of reasons others not so much. This got me thinking about how to get good at balancing the good with the bad. Don’t get me wrong I know that life is one complicated mess, but still some balance should be able to be achieved, right?
I can’t help but wonder why it is that with some things we get thrown off course and with others we can forget about it in a matter of seconds. I have been told that this is because some things are more important to us thus that’s why we get upset. Judging by my week I’d say it is true that I get most upset about things I care about most. It makes all the sense in the world but then I wonder what about the things that don’t have all that much value but still throw us off.
The most impressive feature of those things is the fact that more often than not we know we shouldn’t let it bother us. Yet it does, at least that is true for me. My first thought was it all comes down to your mindset but that can’t be it. I simply find it hard to believe that the person that says they have completely mastered the mind and has this positive beneficial mindset never ever gets upset about anything ever. I have higher believes that Usain Bolt might be able to run over water at his top speed, than anyone never ever being upset about anything.
Besides that, I wonder how we can easily tip the scale back in our favor. Or better said the positive. There are only so many things we can control so the bad is coming whether we want it or not. Life is a mess, and the bad is a part of the mess. Luckily this also means that the good is a part of the mess, which is what we want more of. How do we go about balancing the good with the bad? Not just balancing the good with the bad but perhaps tip the scale a lot more towards the good?
Now I know that when that were to happen technically you wouldn’t have a balance anymore. I just can’t help but wonder whether that little bit extra good will weapon us against the little things that get to us. You know, the things that we know shouldn’t bother us but still do. It would help us to bounce back to our positive energetic self. I wonder how can we override the little bad things with the multitude of good.
I wonder how does one keep balancing the good with the bad when it comes down to the little things?
