Here is a question for you. Do you think the universe puts obstacles in your path for you to work on? The obstacles can range from new technology to individuals. Has someone shown up in your life that is pushing your buttons? Maybe trying your patience, boundaries, or different opinions. If we are finding our buttons pushed maybe we should step back and reflect on whether it is the person, situation or a learning opportunity for us.
I find when I am pushed/uncomfortable over something it is often something I have done in the past and I realize – this is a chance for me to work on that. Someone says something to me and I get my back up. I have to check to see if in the past I have presented this behaviour. Am I feeling guilty about how I behaved and this is the underlying reason why I am getting upset now? My issues.
Maybe the universe is putting this situation in front of me as a learning opportunity. That I have not been open enough or need more patience. That I should first check to see where this person is coming from. Are they in a different generation? Culture? Gender? Everyone has baggage so I have to try to get over mine first before responding. Especially in a negative way.
So universe I will treat my dealings with people and situations as learning opportunities. Why is this trait and/or interaction bothering me. What unresolved issues might this be bringing forth for me to deal with.
It is going to be an interesting fall.
You can always start now!
