What are the things you’re just putting up with in your life? I mean those things that aren’t quite right and that you plan on fixing? Someday…
Today comes, and then tomorrow, and they’re still waiting for some action on our part.
The thing about “tolerations” is that they drag us down, many times leading us to feel overwhelmed by the things that keep accumulating over time. And these “tolerations” end up cluttering our minds. They’re an energy drain that distracts us from what’s really important in our lives.
Now is the time to identify what you’re tolerating! Think of it as the fall cleanup!
The first step is figuring out exactly what you’re tolerating. Your tolerations could be: friendships that are no longer reciprocal, incomplete tasks, frustrations at home or work, unresolved problems, other people’s or your own behavior, clutter, the “shoulds”, unmet needs, crossed boundaries, lack of exercise or sleep, poor eating habits, waffling on decisions, procrastinating – you get the idea.
You may not want to do anything about them right now, but just writing them out will raise your awareness, making you much more willing to start handling, fixing and resolving them. So, make a list of what you’re putting up with at work – and at home – in life – to determine what might be cluttering your mind and slowing you down!
Over time and as you think of more items, add them to your list.
…gotta run, I’m making my list and checking it twice
Now it’s your turn:
Make a list of at least 10 things you are currently tolerating in your life. Then add one thing you can do this week to resolve them. You don’t need to complete any of them – although if the energy is there, go for it! – just note the next step. Promise yourself will wok on the 1st few steps. Then get you butt in gear, and get on it and notice how good you feel as you get to check off things!
