This is another edition of Friday Dance Party on Acorns On Glen. It’s the time where we give thanks for making it through another week and for being alive and present here on Earth. How do we celebrate another week of living? We dance. So, are you alive this Friday? Are you and your family safe and sound? Take a few seconds now to be in the moment and realize what a great life you truly have. Did you give thanks for that?
Good, now let’s dance.
I’ve decided that the chorus to this week’s song by Cobra Starship is how I’m going to start talking to people when I feel I am having a problem with them either at work or in a personal relationship. Think about it, if every time you thought you had an issue with someone, you just brought them in and said “You make me feel so _____” and then “You make me feel that _____”, then wouldn’t the world would be a much happier place? I’m the type of person that really bottles up my feelings when I am having a problem with someone. Instead of clearing the air, I’ll walk around for days and not say a word or, at the very least, not say a word about how I’m really feeling. This type of behavior usually manifests itself in an explosion of angry feelings directed toward the person weeks later when they do something unrelated to why I was having problems with them in the first place. Not such a great plan from a relationship management perspective. In fact, I’ve even caught myself writing somebody off for good for doing something to me versus sitting down and talking it out with them. My new Cobra Starship method for issue resolution is going to change all that…starting now. As you are dancing this week and celebrating another week of living, call someone over if you are having an issue with them and try our new technique. Just hope that they don’t answer you back with “la la la la la” like in the song. Have a great dance–you deserve it! How are you at relationship management?
