Yesterday, for the second time in 3 days, we searched for our ‘delivered’ newspaper and couldn’t find it. We called the delivery service and they promised to send one out. They didn’t, but the carrier did deliver it today.
It came with a nasty note from the carrier, along with today’s paper. The note said, “How did you manage to lose yesterday’s paper?”
I agreed with my husband that calling and complaining about the note was not worth the time and energy it would take. BUT I KEPT THINKING ABOUT how WRONG the carrier was and how he should be reprimanded and given additional training in customer service.
I recognized how thinking that way was keeping me from enjoying my morning and I wanted to blame the carrier for upsetting my routine for the second morning in a row. I knew how self-defeating the process was, but I couldn’t seem to stop.
Fortunately, I did remember that I know a way to stop the silliness whose only effect was to make me feel righteous and unhappy. I used the 3 Logosynthesis sentences that are explained in this book and those thoughts vanished.
I didn’t think of the note again until I was thinking about what I could write about this afternoon.
Try the sentences yourself next time your mind gets stuck.
This paragraph is a comment I wrote about a passage on Page 34 of Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®.) You can see the passage in the book. You can also see the excerpt here. This link will take you to Bublish.com, where I regularly publish comments on parts of this book.
