There Are Two Sides – Which Side Are You On?


Are you having a tug of war anywhere in your life?


I have really been struggling with how anyone could like this President.  I have people very close to me that think he has done great things. They go on about his accomplishments.  And, obviously, there are huge numbers that follow him and enjoy his ways.  


So they can’t all be “wrong.”


I can’t get it.  I can’t see anything that he has done that even comes close to registering “good.”  I know my view is skewed.  


I know who and what he represents are totally opposite of my values and desires.  


I know he is mirroring much for me to learn.  


I know life is showing me where I need to heal.


I know life is for me and it’s up to me what I do with what is before me.


So, I know I have LOTS of work to do to heal and find peace.  


As the Law of Attraction says, “That which is like you is drawn to you.  Vibrations are always matched.” 


I love trying to figure out the bigger messages for me.  


It’s hard being in the pit of the frustration and hurt I see.  I also see how my righteous behaviors are front and center. Which keep me stuck and going the opposite way I want.


It’s humorous to step back and see how other parts of my life are showing the same feelings.  I’m feeling agitation and being perturbed with my planter fasciitis and knee pain that continues to linger. 

Life will get your attention.  


Where in your life are you stuck thinking your way is the way like I am with these situations?


It takes courage to own “your stuff.”  To accept you have work to do. To accept you can be wrong.  To value other points of view. To be willing to do the work.


I know I am a work in progress.  


I know I want to respect other’s views and interests. I know people have differences.  But, this is BIGGER. I don’t like it when I see a line drawn in the sand and I feel the tug – I’m right, you’re wrong.  


I know I can’t solve things on the same level I’m thinking so I’m asking for guidance to heal.  I know fear is just a call for love. I know I want solutions. But, the tug stays when I want to be right.  So I can’t move forward.  


Every time you are tempted to think I’m on this side and you are on that side, take time to process it.  


The situation is there to help you grow and become more of who you are meant to be.


Become clear about what you want. 


Know your values that are more important than the situation.  I know I want peace, joy, and love.  


And, I know I feel gratitude for the frustration and angst.  It has captured my attention. I know I am willing to learn what I need, it’s not really about him.  He’s the mirror to areas where I need to grow. I know once I get to the other side, I will be freer and kinder.


P.S. Know that in the end, I still don’t have to like his ways.  But he will no longer push my buttons and make me feel enraged. I will have healed the part of him I can’t stand.  Wish me well…
