Today I was able to get lunch with my grandparents and let me tell you… again I am so lucky to have two sets of grandparents at the age of 34!
So my Grandpa Robert, Grandma Peggy Dawn and I stopped out to Sunrise Social in Green and as always it was delicious.
I wanted to highlight this visit because 1. They live in Florida so our visits are rare and 2. I have learned so much from them over the years.
The biggest lesson I have learned is “Don’t Take It Personally”. It’s #2 of the Four Agreements.
I must have been about 13 yrs old when they said it to me and OF COURSE I took it personally. That’s the ego working. It took probably 12 more years for me to finally understand what they meant and what someone else says or does isn’t about you, even when it sure seems that way.
Before I close I should cover what The Four Agreements are.
- Be Impeccable With Your Word
- Don’t Take Anything Personally
- Don’t Make Assumptions
- Always Do Your Best
In the book The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide To Personal Freedom by Don Miguel Ruiz, you learn the ways to free yourself and live your life with peace of mind and personal integrity. I highly recommend giving this a read with a true open mind.
My grandparents are two of the most amazing, understanding and wise people I have ever met in my life and anyone would be lucky to meet them.
As always, take care of yourself!
Love, Carrie Danger
