So this Friday I am going to Jamaica.
Which means, I am going to take a week off from writing my newsletter.
As much as I love warm weather, beaches, and sunshine, this is the first time I will be visiting the Caribbean. I am very excited. I will be there for a week. I am going with my girlfriend Sarah
Some of you are saying, girlfriend? When did that happen? Well, it happened when I moved to boulder.
She has everything I have on my list of what I want. Except for 1 thing. And I am questioning, do I really want and or need that 1 thing? Ok, maybe 2, but she keeps going back and forth on the second thing. That being does or doesn’t she want kids. Kind of fun.
And for the first time that I can ever really remember, I got jealous. It blew my mind. I know a lot of people think jealousy is a good thing. I don’t. Jealousy is an emotion that comes from a place of lack. Not love.
What I realized when I was having this emotion was that I was taking things personally. They never are. One of the 4 agreements from a great book called the 4 agreements is – Never take anything personally. And I add on the end, because it never is. Everyone is making their own choices, making their own decisions, all based on their world. Not yours. They have their own life experiences that have shaped their life. If they had your point of view, they would be making the same choices as you. They don’t, so they are making their own choices.
So Jamaica, here we come.
