I can still remember my mother saying to me as a child, “Cheryl, I will not tolerate that behavior.” Of course, at this point, I can’t remember what I had done that she wouldn’t tolerate, but at the time I knew that if I continued down whatever path I was on I would end up receiving a spanking. And yes, there were plenty of times I kept traveling the path.
Tolerations are those things we put up with. They can be a nagging pain in the back. They can be disrespectful/inappropriate behavior of others. They can be the unsupportive thoughts or words we say to ourselves. They can also include the ‘stuff’ around us, like those junk drawers that are filled to the brim, a disorganized garage or an over-stuffed closet.
Two of my tolerations are my bathroom drawers. One holds a plethora of mostly empty lipsticks, blushes and other abandoned makeup and the other houses single earrings, combs, lotions-all stuff I put there because I didn’t really want/like it. I know it makes no sense that I hold on to these items. But I haven’t been willing to get in there to clean those two places out, even though I know that once I commit and do it, my mind, body, and spirit will feel free.
Tolerating messy drawers and cabinets is the same as tolerating bad thoughts and outdated beliefs – both weigh you down and drain your creative energy. When you notice a repeating, unsupportive thought like, ‘I’m not worthy enough,’ ‘I don’t deserve to have ___’, it is important that you immediately pluck it from your mind and replace it with one of higher value and vibration.
“I AM worthy! I DO deserve to have this.”
We are about to move into a new year so it’s a good time to pause and consider what it is you’re “tolerating”. When you recognize and remove the thought tolerations in your life your mind, body and spirit will feel free. And YOU will live a more vibrant, happy life.
