“Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.”
~ Kurt Vonnegut
Ever had one of those experiences where you are so frustrated with someone or something that you are beside yourself?
I sure have!
In those moments, I felt as if the world may never be right again.
Of course, given enough time, I eventually got over the situation and moved on.
One day, I began meditating on how I could move from frustration to joy in those situations as fast as possible.
And, I received an inspiration that worked perfectly instantly…and works every single time I choose to use it.
Notice that I am frustrated and/or angry…rather than attempting to stuff it down and ignore the feeling.
Choose to bring my emotions to a neutral place to gain clarity. Breathe in and out 3x slowly to calm my feelings.
Remember that Universe is always inspiring me forward (rather than conspiring against me). The situation is helping me to become clearer about what I want and what I don’t want to have in my life from this point forward.
Remember to look ahead and envision my ultimate goal (my B-All, End-All goal) as already fulfilled as a result of this situation occurring.
Bless the situation and choose to respond to the person and/or situation according to what will move me closer to the achievement of my B-All goal.
I look forward to hearing your experience of using this Process to transform frustration into joy.
