Day 14 of 31 Day Dear December Challenge – Have Empathy; They May Be Full of It!


Day 14 of Looking for and Living in PEACE!!

How is it going?  It is easier said than done, right?  I know it is for me.  I begin each day with the intention to look for and stay in PEACE, but my mind can quickly wander into worry or stress.  Staying in PEACE is intentional and I have to remind myself to stay in PEACE frequently throughout the day.

Someone flicked me a birdie yesterday.  Take a breath, Shannon….{{Breath}}

Wow, I did it!  I called on Jesus and took a breath. 🙂  I kept driving without feeling a rise of anxiety inside!  My heart didn’t skip a beat or begin beating faster.  The guy was speeding and I didn’t see him trying to merge into my lane.  He probably felt like I didn’t let him in on purpose.  As I think about it now, I am sending up a prayer for him.

Give others the benefit of the doubt as much as possible.  You never know what they are going through.  I’m sure there have been times when you are going through… if they only knew.  Hey, they may even be constipated; yes, literally full of poop!   No one wants to talk about it but somebody has to!  If plumbing is not working properly, there are serious ramifications!  It can be very uncomfortable; downright painful!  It can make you miserable!  Now if you are dealing with digestive issues, you know exactly what I mean.  But you do not have to suffer!

Some have issues they have lived with for so long, they do not recognize it as a problem.  I used to be one of them.  I thought is was normal to go every 3 or 4 days.  I didn’t think anything was wrong, but thinking back to my mindset, that was likely part of the problem.  LOL.  Moving your bowels once or twice a week is not nearly enough.  When functioning optimally, you will go mostly everyday!

Some of the things you can do to become more regular are:

  • Hydrate!  Drink plenty of water throughout the day.  8 – 8 oz glasses are a good average.
  • Eat foods with fiber.  Plenty of beans, fruits, and vegetables unless you have restrictions.
  • Moderate exercise to help keep things moving.
  • Avoid stress as much as possible.  Stress limits efficient function of the digestive system
  • Good quality supplementing can ensure your body has the appropriate nutrients it needs to ensure your body

Perhaps keeping in mind that others may simply be full of it will help you to have more empathy for them.  If it is you feeling miserable, feel free to contact me for a consultation.

I love you and there is nothing you can do about it!
