Welcome back to part 2, „How to stay on track with your life?“. If you haven't read Part 1 yet, I strongly advise you to do that first, so you can benefit and feel the real power of these simple exercises. Link below
Now that you have exercised 5 x 3 ´gratitude routine´ for about a week you can add more things.
The reason why we don't add this exercise from the beginning is so that we keep it simple, we get used to the routine first, we get more positive over the few days and then we can expand and build on top of it. We don't want to overwhelm ourselves in the beginning, as we know sometimes less is more. After you finish saying the last thing that you are grateful to yourself, as you are lying there in your bed, think of the person who you are angry with, you can think of a specific situation, specific argument, and now I want you to say (in your mind or out loud) that you forgive him/her (you might not mean it at this point but say it anyway), and then ask for forgiveness from him/her. As we all know every coin has 2 sides and each of us see things from our own perspective. For example, I used to get so angry every morning at these irresponsible drivers, getting all angry and when I got to work I was already in a bad mood. Let's try to empathize more, maybe this person has a reason why he/her driving so quickly/badly, maybe they are late for important business meeting or a school exam, maybe they are rushing to a hospital, and they don't realize they are causing you a hassle, maybe they are nervous because they just heard very bad news about member of their family and that affected their driving… We are all focused on ourselves, on our own path, on our own side of the coin, without noticing the whole big world around us. All we need is a bit of kindness and empathy.
Close your eyes and say „I forgive you, I forgive you for….“ (try to use your empathy when saying it) and after that say „Please forgive me, forgive me for….“. If you are not sure what you how exactly you hurt this person, you can simply say „...please forgive me for any difficulties that I may have caused you...“ (again try to use your empathy when saying it).
Maybe you are angry (passively or actively), with your work colleague, or a family member, or a good friend or just a random person who roodly jumped in front of you in a que. Learn to let go. Don´t forget you are going this for yourself. When you learn to let go, your life will be much happier, you will be much less stressed, you will no longer waste your time and energy on the anger and past situations that you cannot change.
Add this exercise of forgiveness and letting go to your daily routine, right after your gratitude exercise.
I hope this will work for you as well as it worked for me and that people around you will see the difference in your actions, in your moode, in your inner vibe, as they did when I went through this process.
In a few days I will release the last part, Part 3, which will be the final part on your path to staying on track with your life, and improving your life in general.
