When I have an unusually busy spell, the kind that prevents me from blogging for a whole week, it leaves me feeling a bit out of sorts and filled with critical thoughts about myself.

“YOU’RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME!”
On the surface it may simply be a response from a child resisting what they’re being asked (or told) to do. Yet I ask you to consider another perspective…
Whether spoken to a sibling or a parent… it’s a good indicator that a child is on the verge of feeling over-powered by someone. And even a young child realizes that there is something ‘off’ about that.
Even a child knows that it is the job of each of us to be the boss of ourselves!
So, if you hear that line coming at you, instead of pushing against it and creating resistance as you may be tempted to do… why not pause a moment and consider how well you are doing when it comes to being the boss of yourself.
Being the boss of yourself means you take responsibility for your own thoughts, your own alignment, knowing the powerful, positive impact your alignment has on all of your relationships.
