Maat E's Mental Health Message:
Wait a minute, literally! Before you act wait 60 seconds. There is an old saying that good things come to those who wait. Good things come in all forms and fashions too. Your good thing could be one less argument because you waited a moment to respond to an unwanted comment. The good thing could be a kind gesture because you waited patiently for the person in front of you to move out of your way. The good thing could be your life because you waited and let your road rage pass and did not get out of the car to argue with the gun carrying driver that cut you off. When we take a minute to wait before responding to the external influences in our lives, we are controlling our actions and potentially our outcomes. Experiment with waiting a minute today. Practice acting in ways that are going to reinforce the outcomes you want. The practice will make waiting a minute and getting your desired outcomes a regular practice.
Have a blessed day. Much peace, more love. Maat E.
