It has been quite a while since I have written a blog. It has been a challenging time. My website was being created, going live, and then updated. There were delays. I considered changing the technology platforms on my computer. Then there were the technical difficulties. And then there were many other issues that needed attention. Keeping focused in difficult times can be difficult.

But, here I am, now through those times. Even during difficult times, I had the opportunity to stop and think. What should I be doing? There is an old expression about should-ing on yourself, but I won’t go into that now. I should have been more active. I should have reviewed my New Year’s resolutions to see which ones that needed work. I should have been more productive. How many times have you felt this way?

I also thought about the could-haves… What could I be doing better… differently? I could have written another book (which I did), I could have rested more (which I didn’t), I could have created more blogs. I could have, I should have…

Wait- it was those thoughts that created all the turmoil after some minor technical and other difficulties. What was I creating? How had I been a part of making experiences more challenging? I then thought about my role…

It is not what happens to us, it is how we experience it that matters. It is what we choose to think about the experience. It is what we say to ourselves that makes the difference in how we feel, and how we act. Our behaviors are controlled by what we think about and say to the most important person in the world- ourselves. It is the person that I think about all day long, that I take around everywhere, the one that listens to every comment I make about my experiences that matters. How I speak to the me inside can improve or limit my attitudes, feelings and behavior. And, it my choice. What I decide to say to me; the most important person in my world will create my future.
