Why do I refer to my emotional self as THE EMOTIONAL GENIE. It is because in a snap (one rub of the lamp) my emotional self can burst out and take over my brain, heart, emotions, reactions, gut etc. This is something I commonly hear other Mammas agree about, that with the right trigger, our emotions jump into the drivers seat and make decisions.
Today, in our 'Say No Series', I want you to let your Emotional Genie take control. For todays requests that come your way imagine your emotional self bursting out of the lamp, taking over and making the decision.
After it does, consider:
- How do I feel right now?
- What is the impact of my decision?
- How did allowing my Emotional Genie to take over impact me positively and negatively?
- How does this apply to how to show up when someone requests something of me?
