I caught a bad case of the “Yeah Buts”… by Kitty Oppegard
A few weeks ago I caught a bad case of the yeah buts. You know…where you are incredibly blessed in your life as a whole and things are working out pretty swimmingly… yeah, but.
It’s funny and absurd at times how we are completely negative about the things in our life.
It is also comfortable and tragic to say the least.
We lose the NOW in all that hulla-balloo.
What about right this minute?
In my jammies, with my favorite cup of coffee, on a lap top, on my new couch in my new home, on a crispy winter morning? Yeah but, I should have taken a shower and made my bed and did a load of laundry and cleaned the bathrooms……UGH.
Zaps the NOW right outta things doesn’t it?
Face it. We are professional yeah butters.
Does this sound familiar?
“Did you get a haircut, it looks so nice”…. “Yeah but it’s too short”.
Way to take a compliment there!
Think of the dozen things you did this week and caught a severe case of the Yeah Buts with it.
Eye opening isn’t it?
I pulled a card from the Oracle deck to shed some light on how to approach this and here is what I pulled: “Eclipsed Moon.”
This part hit home for me: “Plant your feet firmly on your souls path and know everything is good and right.”
Well isn’t that nice? See it’s not just about the little things, guys… it’s about where you are in the process of your life. If we are professional negative seekers, we can spot a problem a million miles away without a sense that we are “right where we need to be.”
Lets stay centered and grounded in the NOW as immune booster to “The Yeah Buts.”
We can do this together, once we put a name to this seemingly harmless thing we do on a daily basis, we can start to focus on the moment. And it’s nice here in the moment isn’t it…. Yeah but I really need to get off the computer…And there it is!
Immunize yourself today against the “Yeah Buts,” you’ll feel better I promise!
