June was Pride Month. For some it was the one day they put all their issues to the side and spend the entire day FREE. Some people dressed in a way they wish they could on a daily basis, some were able to come out from the shadows and blend in with thousands who took to the streets.
This series will take a look at how you can gain peace in your own life, on your own block and in your own community through character, strength and integrity. Enjoy Part 1: Do Not Disturb
Most people have been to a hotel or motel. I personally enjoy traveling, but I dont need to travel to go to a hotel, I will book a room in my own city at any given moment. One feature that is universal in most hotels is the “Do Not Disturb” sign. It usually is hanging on the back of your door.
This sign allows you to let anyone who wishes to enter your room or knock on your door know that you are not available. Hotel staff will usually skip over your room and come back at a later time when you are available to receive them.
Wouldn’t it be great to take that “Do Not Disturb” sign home with you?
Imagine being able to block all the drama, rumors and hate people bring into your life on a daily basis by simply putting up a sign. Imagine having the same kind of peace you get from using that sign in a hotel – in your daily life.
Well, I have good news for you.
Most phones nowadays have a “Do Not Disturb” feature. And if yours doesn’t, there is no law that says you have to take every call or read every text that comes your way.
You don’t have to attend every fight or battle you are invited to.
You teach people how to treat you by what you allow. If you allow people to send your blood pressure up because of how you react to things, they will continue to bring it to you. However, if you start teaching people what it takes to remain in your life, they will learn – on their own – when not to disturb you.
What you feed grows, what you ignore will go away.
