Last night, on top of feeling a slight malaise, I got frustrated as I debated how to deal with someone’s lack of good judgment and attention with my girl. Will leave it at that. For the first time, I sort of opened up about my frustration about this person to my girl and asked her why she’s not bothered by it more. She didn’t know. I sort of do. After I lamented about it for another couple minutes, she said…
Her – “Just forget about it.”
Me – “Just forget about it?”
Her – “Yeah, just forget about it and think about good things.”
Me – “Think about good things? Like what?”
Her – “Happiness. Being excited. Be excited that you did two TV shows. Things like that.”
I smiled at her with admiration. Here I was at 43 having read too many books in my life on mindset, attitude, creating your reality, and here she was having read not a one but schooling me on Life 101.
Me – “You know a few things about life, don’t you?”
Me – “What do you understand about life?”
Her – “Happiness.”
It’s funny because while I was talking about this person and my issues with her behavior I did flash on something I heard about the law of attraction and the futility of wallowing in the complaint. But I ignored it. She has never heard that material but knew not to ignore it.
