It’s not a pretty food pic, but it’s serving as a couple of reminders. 1) you can make #ketofriendly
choices anywhere. (This is an airport breakfast from @jackinthebox
- skip the bun, & don’t make it a combo!) 2) (and completely unrelated to food) it’s a reminder that not everyone is blessed with a community of people that truly want you to be a better human. Not everyone has been gifted with people who teach them about mindset or how to be positive.
The staff at this particular location were incredibly unhappy, unpleasant, rude (to each other and customers) and very visibly did not enjoy their jobs. And it reminded me, that I USED to think “gosh, if you hate your job so much- why do you do it?” when I encountered that kind of energy coming from people I interacted with. I used to be impatient with them and almost offended that their hatred for their job would impede on my amazing day. I used to be “offended” that they would show up in my day in a way that didn’t serve me..... (anyone else?) And now - I smile! I send them love and light. I wish them an amazing fabulous incredible day and I do it without a hint of sarcasm (hi! 🙋🏻♀️ I also used to say that in those situations, but I did it as a total bitch just to make a point lol) NOW - I send positive energy to them and send them love.
And - instead of spending several minutes hashing out in my head how their lack of happiness affected my day, I move quickly into gratitude.
I am grateful that I have been taught (very recently, mind you) that mindset matters. I am grateful that I have been given skills that allow me to move from negative thoughts to positive ones. I’m grateful that my “co-workers” live and work with that same energy and we pass it back and forth. I’m grateful that I am aligned with people who also recognize the power of #mindset
. I’m grateful that I no longer allow the negative energy of other people to infiltrate my day, and I’m grateful that I’ve learned that what upsets me is about me, & that is NOT about me, so there’s no reason to take that energy with me.
So - the next time you encounter someone with negative energy, send them love and light! They are in NEED!
