I feel. I need.

Standard

This weekend, while volunteering taking care of the youth at Agape, I had the pleasure of working with a child psychologist. I was God-struck when I witnessed an interaction between the psychologist and one of the children. The child had just bopped another child directly in the forehead.

In working with the child to resolve the issue, my psychologist friend asked the child, “When you hit her in the head, what did you feel?” After stumbling over a few words, he said, “I was angry.”  She then asked, “When you were angry with her what did you need?”  He calmly replied, “I wanted her to share her toy.”
The child felt heard and was able to express what he needed.  The situation quickly dissolved after all parties felt seen and heard.
I was awestruck at this interaction, because I thought to myself, “this is a skill that most ADULTS don’t even have.”

I’m so grateful for the experiences I’m having and the wisdom I am gaining.

Yesterday is Gone. Only Today is Real.

Standard

Stop referring to your old-self as real.  Only today is real. Yesterday’s-self is but an illusion, a mere ghost. 

When you find yourself entertaining old feelings and/or thoughts, STOP, center yourself and allow yourself to entertain a new thought and/or feeling.

You have more control over thoughts and choices than you may believe.

Only today is real.
