So, I've committed myself to reading 30 books before I turn
I still have just over one year left... but, who's counting, right?
I picked up the book "Loving What Is" written by Byron Katie.
The tagline of the book reads: "Four questions that will change your life."
Can't be so bad... so, I dove right in. Chapter 1 was great! The woman in question hates her husband and Byron Katie helps her work through these four questions to help this woman realize she doesn't actually hate her husband.
Chapter 2- my turn. Katie wants the readers to take out pen and paper and write down one person, scenario, SOMETHING, that triggers them. The best part? You're not even supposed to try and be nice!
So, I whip open a blank page in my journal- pen in hand, and I'm essentially foaming at the mouth for the opportunity to rip this person in my life (who's been a HUGE trigger for me for a while now) to SHREDS!
And, then it hits me. I slam my journal shut, throw it off the bed, and shut the lights off. I know where this is going! And I'm not going to do it!
But, if I'm so bothered by this person- constantly left feeling angry, unworthy, doubted, and even hated- why is there so much resistance to do the work in order to not be such a victim to her anymore?
In this episode, I dive in to all of that and what it means.
But, there's a huge caveat. And I save that for part 2 of this episode airing later this week :)
