Pema Chödrön tells us that being mad at someone and holding a grudge is kinda like eating rat poison and thinking the rat will die.
Last time I checked, that’s not very smart. 🤓
Today’s +1 is very simple.
Are you eating any rat poison these days?
Seriously. If you’re feeling so inspired, take a moment to reflect on any grudges you may be holding on to and check in to see if it’s time to throw out the rat poison.
One way to do that? Bust out the Active Love Tool the next time you feel yourself in a mental maze of rat-poison frustration.
How? Drop out of your head and into your heart. Beam the person love. Move on.
Throw the rat poison out and quit bringing it into your life.
Unless you kinda like being a rat in which case, rock that! (Hah. 🐀)
