We’re Not Ping Pong Balls, We’re Magnets

Do you ever feel like you’re bouncing between things happening around you–both good and bad?  I do.  One minute I’m on top of the world with good news, and the next moment that either reverses itself or something happens to bring me down to Earth.   I feel like a human ping pong ball.

But I know better– I am not bouncing, I am attracting.  I’m not a ping pong ball, I’m a magnet.  It’s just so hard sometimes to see the difference.

The difference for me is this:  in the moment of the “bad news”, instead of immediately reacting with emotion, I stop myself.   Taking that action turns off the ping pong ball effect of negative emotion, and brings me into the present moment.  I then say to myself, what is it about what is happening that I either created through my choices in life, or what is there to learn here?   When I do that–and believe me it’s not easy or immediate–I eventually come to a place where I see my role in what has happened.  And when we each see our role in the events as they unfold in our lives, we become the creators of our lives and not just the product of outside events.
