I'm small but free
Do you think that you have reached the pen? You have trouble at work, you haven’t been paid your salary for three months, and this morning the boss yelled at you? I know what you need to do.
Do you think that you have reached the pen? You have trouble at work, you haven’t been paid your salary for three months, and this morning the boss yelled at you? I know what you need to do. To calm down, to recover and gather your thoughts, you need joy. Give yourself a little pleasure, but just let it not be a pleasure for your family, husband or children. It should be a pleasure for you, for you personally!
For example, like that. You come home, wait for the evening, put everyone to bed and remain alone with yourself. And now, at 11 a.m., violating all conceivable diets, you can cook and eat something very tasty. You take fat-free cottage cheese, add a lot of parsley and dill, and very little flour, salt and spices. And make cottage cheese pancakes - not fatty and sweet, as usual, but light and goat-like. Then you make some awesome green tea and turn on your favorite movie, which you, of course, have been going to watch for a hundred years, but it didn’t work out for you. You relax, enjoy life, watch a movie and simultaneously think about what you would like. I assure you that in this state, something positive will certainly come to mind. After all, you paused and allowed yourself to think about life, and this is generally very rarely done now.
I know for sure that such a pause is an almost trouble-free way to change your life. I tried it on myself. In 2004, I graduated from the presidential company and realized that the race for me was over. Then I did everything I could, and then I had to live differently. Until that time, I was terribly vulnerable, I planned some goals for myself, persistently moved towards them, and if something did not work out, I was very upset. In general, the whole world then concentrated for me in the fussy stream of a big city, when you always try to do something and be in time. As a result, you get a lot of stress, because not everything in this world depends on you and you can not always avoid mistakes. After 2004, I realized that the main rule of a happy life is this: you need to love life more than your own career, and love yourself more than your own success. And then you stop participating in the race, because there is an internal pause, which gives you the opportunity to think and decide on desires. Only two hours in silence - and already something will change.
I realized that there are two types of people. Some people argue like this: “Of course, the universe is limitless, and I do not know all the secrets of the universe. But I'm so cool that I’ll break everything through my knee, but I will do what I want. And I will prove that I can achieve anything, fulfill any dream. ” People of the second type argue very differently: “The Universe is much stronger than me, and I am just a small trifle. But this little thing wants to live happily. Therefore, I periodically ask the universe for something, because I am so weak and I won’t manage it myself. ” And this is surprising: as soon as you understand that the universe is huge, and you are small, then life becomes much easier. Because every time you want to ask the universe for something, you suddenly realize that your request is also a trifle. Remember, in the Strugatsky’s book “Picnic on the Sidelines”, the protagonist reaches the ball, and when he hugs this ball, he can ask him about anything and any desire will come true. And the hero understands that you can only make one wish, which means that you need to ask for something very important, grandiose. And the only thing that comes to his mind is "let everyone be happy and let no one go offended."
It would seem such a banal thing. When everything around is raging, stresses harass you and your bosses humiliate you, you stop reacting to external events, like a nervous snail at every touch of a needle. You become less naked, and you have such an inner carapace, a rod that helps you understand that everything that happens is trifles. You say to yourself: “I am a small person, but free. And, if it will be really hard for me, I will definitely ask the Universe for something. But there’s nothing to ask for now, because you can get out of everything. ” And I assure you that you really will get out.
