4th Day of the Week: POSITIVE EMOTIONS AND EXPRESSIONS
Have a “No Argument Day.”
At the end of the day, journal for at least 10 minutes.
(Was the experience positive or negative? Easy or difficult? Notice anything new or different from what you imagined?)
Emotions can be considered as primitive thoughts. They are triggered from the powerhouse of your mind – the subconscious. Emotions are so powerful that they compel you to behave one way even while your conscious mind is thinking that you want to behave another way. We’ve all had this experience!!
Be conscious today of your emotions that compel you to argue, whether you voice those arguments or not. Be mindful that emotions come from beliefs that have lodged themselves into your powerful subconscious. These beliefs rear their ugly heads in order to compel others to conform to those beliefs through your anger (the emotion) and arguments (the behavior). In other words, you get angry and argue because there is a difference between your belief and reality. As you argue, others will begin to get in alignment with your beliefs, thus causing reality to abide to your beliefs. Simply put, your anger gets others to change real quick! Though only temporarily. This is the opposite of love.
So have fun on this “No Argument Day,” even if you have to bite your tongue.
We’ll see you again tomorrow for Day 5.
