Practicing Self Control

Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.  James 1:19
 Do you feel like you are always saying things you shouldn’t have or reacting to people or situations in ways you know you shouldn’t?  I use to be like this.  I was quick to speak, quick to react in frustration, fear judgment and anger and was very slow at listening to people and the heart of the matter but thankfully I rarely respond this way now.  So what changed?  My spouse?  My child? … The situations?  The long lines and people at the grocery store?  The traffic and other drivers?  My boss or co workers?  My finances?  The answer to all–NO!!!  What changed was ME, my heart, my attitude, my response.  My life is completely different now and the reason it is, is because I learned the practice of Living Still and to this day I choose to practice this everyday.  It transformed my life in every way and I am confident it will do the same for you. You see, there will always be long lines, crazy drivers, unexpected situations and circumstances in life, people having bad days and they take it out on you, people who don’t see the world as you do, rainy days, unexpected financial situations….the list could go on and on.  My point is, don’t let these sort of things take your joy and peace.  You can “choose” to rise above and in the midst of it all still shine bright.  It takes time to develop the practice of Living Still so I would like to encourage you to begin now…  Click here to learn how you too can begin the practice of Living Still and as always Be Love Give Love
