Stop, drop and roll

Something happened to me this week that reminded me just how much happier I am when I realize that  – sometimes – the lenses I use to see things and the filters through which I experience them can be a bit cloudy.

And, those clouds can get into my eyes and my sweet little soul, and distort my views and my experiences.

So, to remind myself to take a reflective approach I have learned to stop, drop and review my responses and reactions before I let them roll, which has greatly reduced the number of fires in my life and the time and energy I have to spend putting them out.

I like that.
