I experience thoughts of annoyance with others. Whether it be “Why would you do that?” or “What were you thinking?” or even “Why don’t you do that differently?”. Bottom line: I have allowed myself to feel annoyance with others.
What is annoyance? It is defined as something which causes feelings of slight anger or irritation. Based upon the word annoy which is to disturb or bother (a person) in a way that displeases, troubles or slightly irritates. A few synonyms: aggravate, irritate, bother bug, chafe, exasperate.
Upon reflection: to be annoyed is a negative emotion which benefits absolutely no-one!
Being annoyed is of no positive use and in actual fact can be harmful to the one who is being annoyed. Negative energy can alter your body at the cellular level – why not give yourself all the help you can – Be Positive!
So…what can we do?
What will I do?
I choose to readjust who I am so I may remove this negative reaction from my existence – or at the very least become more aware so I may minimize its effect on myself and how I interact with others around me.
I believe in all things we are firstly unaware and incompetent. Once we realize something we can now consider ourselves aware but we remain incompetent until something changes. We then work towards altering what we know or do by learning a skill to alter the outcome – resulting in us being aware and eventually competent at whatever we have chosen to shift. Then, once we say or do something enough times (repetition/practice) we remain competent but have now shifted to doing, saying, being it automatically – unaware.
So…the million dollar question is “how” do I shift from being incompetent and aware to being competent and aware – releasing annoyance and frustration? I need to practice being content and satisfied.
For all my followers…current and new, I am making a promise (and I always keep my promises) to blog for the next 365 days about this journey of self discovery; a shift in who I am working towards – who I envision myself to be!
- Recognized and thanked my husband for sharing the end result with me and then going back to fill in the details – a request I made to him which allows me to fully concentrate on the news he is sharing.
- Our dog Mya has a strong desire to get us to understand what she wants and persistently attempts, in any way possible, to get her message across.
- I do not judge myself for what I have not done up until now; I look at myself for what I am doing today!
