Fences – Arrow – A Reflection

Fences and Arrow are little reflections authored by Ilia Kramarik and found on page 92 of his book titled The Future Never Gives Up…The featured image I choose is one of my home theater poses…In Fences Ilia writes…”Fences imitate us.” Wow three words so full of wisdom and in Arrow Ilia writes…”You shot me right in the heart! Try another arrow!”….Again so profound…Words have power and words can heal and lift us up and words can hurt and drag us down…Anger is a powerful emotion which can be productive or destructive depending on how we leverage the energy behind our anger…For example if one is angry and tired of being broke and they get up and go and do something about their poverty such as work many jobs or one good paying job that is a good result of the energy from being angry…However, if one is angry over being hurt in the past or present and acts out or lashes out at others that is when anger is destructive…I was reflecting on my own anger and I noticed that when I am angry I self destruct in many ways…I am learning to remind myself daily to always be grateful and to not allow upsetting or hurtful events from my past affect me in the present…Not always easy to do so I must be mindful and purposely do this each and every day moment to moment…The aphorism “hurting people hurt other people” is very true it is only when we can get past our hurt so as to remain mindful of ourselves and others in the present moments can we truly say we will not hurt others…Most of us many of us myself included are hurting people in that we need to heal from emotional wounds from our past and we do hurt others though often unintentionally…I recently had an experience where I felt dumped…So I worked up the courage to speak to this business man whom I felt dumped me…He was very apologetic as was I…I learned from this experience he told me he never dumped me….I agree now that I can see more clearly…I freaked out and because I felt hurt and perceived something he was doing on the phone in the wrong way or wrong light…I thought the worst when the reality was totally different…My son would tell me I tend to think the worst in situations that is due to the trauma of my past…I was able to apologize to this kind business man who is very decent and to own and admit that yes I have issues like many others have issues and I am getting the help I need with my issues…It is huge progress for me to be able to behave like an adult for a change and face my problems head on instead of hiding from them or avoiding others such as that business man…I use my energy and channel it into songs and humor…As an artist I express myself and I find by so doing it is cathartic…I thanked that man for dumping me and in the process learned that he never dumped me rather I read the whole situation wrong and as a result I felt dumped…I can own it when I mess up and then move on having learned from these experiences…It is never too late to learn and I am learning a lot and that business man taught me a lot and I thank him for that…I learned a lot about myself and how I deal with things through the feedback that good man provided me…I am staying off google reviews as reviews are meant to be limited to business and not meant to be used to air personal differences…Lesson learned for me a valuable lesson too…A friend of mine who builds websites says she sees it all the time that angry people will provide personal google reviews which is not right and reviews like that can destroy good businesses…We all must be careful what we say and how we say it I am no exception…I am learning too…Hypersensitivity is something I struggle with also and is an area that will always need improvement and work for me…For over thinkers everywhere and hypersensitive people every where this post is for you…I am definitely an over thinker and hyper sensitive…As a thank you for your likes follows and shares and subscriptions enjoy more you tube stuff from your mad hatter blogger who is crazy enough to share with the world my very small world with the hope that what I share might help a person or two…Heck if I can grow and learn how to be a better human being then anyone can…We are always in motion always learning from each other and growing too…I learned a lot from that decent hardworking businessman and I thank him for being my teacher…I dedicate this post to that kind man who has the patience of a saint and to all decent hardworking businesses…
