So how do we stay in the place of blessing from the heart? One of the ways I’ve found is simple everyday reminders that I can see, feel and touch. Last week, I was having a most frustrating conversation with a contractor’s assistant. When I got off the phone, I remember thinking how sorry I felt for her because she was very slow in tracking the numbers.
I was doing quite a bit of muttering to myself and then I saw the Bless Your Heart reminder on my desk. I thought, “Who are you to judge this person?” I immediately blessed her, myself and the situation, thereby discharging the emotion. When she called me back in five minutes, we had a very amicable and productive conversation.
