The week between Christmas and New Year's Day is consistent for me. Maybe like the change of the seasons I find myself thinking about the past and what I want to keep or change as I move into a the new year. One of the helpful tools that I use is my God box. Call if whatever you like but this is the box that I write down anything bothering me that I cannot seem to quit thinking about. In other words, obsessing about and it is getting me nowhere fast.
This can be a bad experience with another agent, a bad experience for my client or simply a bad day for me (not living up to my best self). I have found that when I just cannot quit thinking about it I write whatever "it is" on a slip of paper and put it in my God box. At the end of the year I open up my box and go through all those slips of paper. It is amazing how many I don't even remember. The one consistent is that I am always grateful for the reminder, yet again, that things always work out.
This year I want to add to my God box with the idea of a "virtual storage unit". My virtual storage unit is where I can park "or store" any thoughts or memories that I am not quite read to let go of year but want to put them on hold. We have all heard the phrase "eating poison and waiting for the other person to die". With this it is the thoughts or memories I have that are taking up space in my mind, heart and life that are affecting no one but me.
What do you do with the thoughts/situations and feelings that just seem to be hanging on in your life?
