I was called a stubborn donkey the other day. And yes I am one, and don’t laugh you are one too! We are all stubborn in some areas in our life and we have a block there to ask for help. Or we have a fear to change our habits.
Where am I stubborn and what can I do with that knowledge?
Easy to see since where I am behaving as a donkey, the results are the same. The areas in my life where I am dissatisfied and discourage they qualify. It is visible in things happening that I do not want to happen. I look at them and I do not like them one bit. I want them to go away.
Yes, I am a player in my own drama or soap opera, life is my private theater and I keep playing the same role with the same results. Often ending up feeling not OK.
Failure is a way to begin again, this time more intelligently. Henry Ford
So I begin again and look at the things that I can do differently today. The world and people in it are my playground. I will really look and notice what is going on. There are message and clues out there. What is it they are trying to tell me, while I am in stubborn mule-mode?
I hear the workman that is building a shed next to my boat. It is raining. I offer him a cup of coffee and we chat. Any message? No it is nice to sit and drink coffee with someone else.
Where are you being a donkey? Would you like to try and see it in a different light?
