I want to talk about the Positive Affirmation for today that I have on the left side of my blog (its a box after the twizzler explanation). If you are not reading on Monday, May 18th: The PA says "Reap What You Sow." In other words: you get what you plant, you get what you give, and other such phrases. So I thought....
I want to talk about this because I feel cheated at work. I was not able to get my food discount today (or for the rest of this week, for that matter) because I did not do my deep clean last week. Its a rule, so why whine (or whinge?) if I break the rule and get reprimanded? First, I do it 95% of the time. Second, I've been bringing my lunch and didn't have the time to prep today. It's like I forgot to bring it just so I could be told my problem. Because I would have never noticed the tiny sign with my name on it that is beside all the other signs which regularly loiter in this area. And third, they decided to enforce the rule on the week I honestly forget to do it! Come on! I've been a bit bummed about it and wanted to rebel. OK, Lady J how old are you again?
So, I came to blog about the PA because when I read it at first, I was like, "Duh, we hear this all the time, but is it not "You reap what you sow?" Yes, it is. Usually, you read or hear "You reap what you sow." As in, you get what you give, etc, etc... "So why is this one different?", I thought. That,my friends, is what is so important here. Instead of warning you, this phrase is telling you to do. Reap what you sow.
Do you get it? Reap what you sow. Now do what you have done--experience it to its fullest. Cause and Effect. The ripples in the pond have returned to you, my friend. And that is exactly what has happened to me. I resisted and I received resistance. I don't like doing deep cleans so I put it off until the last minute. And sometimes I run out of time-- forgetting when there is no room to forget. In turn, my manager "resisted" giving me a discount. I didn't pay much for my meal, by all means, but I did learn a lesson today. You really do reap what you sow.
So, where in your life are you putting up resistance, or being lazy,or being doubtful? Be careful or you may not like how your reaping turns out. It's like the old saying goes, "You've made your bed, now lay in it."
