It is true that pivotal moments are BIG in our lives. In the episode mentioned previously, I was left very angry! I did spare the loved one I wanted to protect, but I was left feeling like I had rewarded bad behavior and enabled another to continue down the wrong track! WOE was ME!
A dear friend of mine reminded me that a gift is a gift is a gift and just that. Also that if you look at the situation as maybe inspirational to another person by adding just the right amount of encouragement at a time when it might be greatly needed you see the good in the act. If you revisit the “Pay it forward” philosophy idea, then the act takes on a whole new meaning once again. While thinking these thoughts gave me relief from my severe frustration I was still uncomfortable with what I had done………….I had gone against my gut feeling! I had let emotions rule my actions.
Our “gift of Grace” is our gut feelings, our intuitions, our does it feel right, our does it make me happy, should I do this thing or not, am I making things better or making them worse?
This situation isn’t over. Stay tuned….add comments, what do you think, what would you do?
