Dearest Boxers in the Tool Shed,
Yesterday, I woke up with a raging headache- one of those that feels like a football helmet is glued to your head- ever had something like that? It was pounding clear down my neck into my shoulders.
I was able to get in to my massage therapist, she worked on me a bit then told me what was causing the pain in both shoulders: Guilt and Resentment. GERRRR...carrying the weight of guilt and resentment is a pretty hefty burden.
When I got home, I wrote out what I thought I was feeling guilty about, and what I thought might be the cause of resentment. As I studied these, I realized they were of my own creation, and if I created them surely I could release them, also! It was hard, but I had to own them. Couldn't blame anyone else. Especially that resentment stuff.
I went through each item, and wrote out why it was a waste of my time to carry it, and I wrote out that it would be released now, tonight in my sleep, and that I'd wake up without these heavy burdens that I'd created. All of this was hand-written. There's something very affirmative in the action of hand-writing something.
I woke up this morning feeling much lighter! I did my 'Checker Routine", and have a great day to look forward to!
I know there's a day in the tool box to do this exercise. Because I didn't THINK it applied to ME, I sorta sluffed through it. And, as always, Plane Jane has to learn things the hard way. I cannot emphasize to you Boxers how important the exercises are to do on the DAY that they are assigned. Yes, you may think (like I did) that 'well, this isn't really applicable to my life right now' - EVENTUALLY, it will be. This is why Coach has included them in the program! If you don't do them NOW, you'll have to do what I did and just go back and do it anyway.
Just as we create a "Great Day", we also create all the other junk, too. I don't know about you, but I feel a heck of a lot better without the junk bogging me down!
Flying high, making it a GREAT day in JaneLand!
