You know how there are some people in your life (especially family members at times) that can just get under your skin, pushing your hot buttons and making you feel like you have that irritability bug within you that just keeps eating away at your joy?
Well, first off, they may be pushing your hot button, but they didn’t install that hot button
… you did.
It’s your job to have a demolition party and remove that hot button altogether.
Only you can do that!
So, here’s one thing you can do to start to deactivate your hot buttons:
When that person says or does something that really annoys you …
1) Stop (become aware that you are allowing it to happen again)
2) Get centered in the present moment (take a big deep breath in and release on the out breath that frustration)
3) Ask yourself … “Is this really worth giving up my joy for?”
Typically the answer to #3 will be a “Hell No!” and at that point you have a choice to deactivate that hot button and not allow anyone to impact how much joy you feel in any given moment. Now, I know … I hear you saying “but, they shouldn’t be doing that!” or “I wish they would just not say that”. But here’s the thing … you have absolutely no control over what others say or do. You only have control over how you respond to what other people say or do. And anyway, what other people say or do says more about them than you. (That’s a really good one to remember. It is definitely NOT personal.)
From a Law of Attraction standpoint, no matter what it is that makes you feel frustrated, you are stopping the flow of abundance from coming to you. So, why would you want to allow others to kink your vibe and push the pause button on your greatest desires and dreams? You wouldn’t. How you choose to feel is up to you. And the more joy you feel, the easier it will be to manifest what you truly desire to have in your life. That’s the Law of Attraction in action.
Don’t use other people as an excuse as to why you can’t be happy!
YOU are the one who chooses how much joy you let into your life, no matter what others do!
Have a Lovin’ Life day! Hot button deactivated … whoosh! 😉
