This quote got to my heart last night….
“The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.” – Eckhart Tolle
I had to read this quote a few times + found myself almost arguing out loud with Eckhart. But…. but… but….
And yet, the more I read these wise words, the more I realized it IS our thoughts, our perspective, our reactions, our wanting to be right (about being wronged) that are the primary cause of our unhappiness.
And it got me thinking (In fact, I ask myself these questions as I pose them to you….)
7 questions to help you shift the cause of your unhappiness…What if this week you could be the observer – of your emotions, of others’ emotions, of your thoughts etc….instead of the reactor?
What if this week you loved more and feared less?
What if this week you loosened your grip on controlling everything in your life + relaxed about it all?
What if this week you trusted more, listened more + found more moments of joy?
What if this week you practiced treating yourself like you would someone you absolutely adored?
What if this week you listened less to the “facts” and more to your intuition?What if this week you quieted your mind + opened your heart?
It might just turn out to be a way happier week…..or life.
I’m gonna try it. Are you?
