Have you noticed that when young children try food they don’t like, they immediately spit it out? As an adult, have you ever bit into something that just didn’t taste right or good? You probably didn’t spit it out…you might have finished it in order to not embarrass your host or yourself or maybe you waited for a strategic moment when you could spit it into your napkin and hide it in your purse or pocket for disposal later. This is just one small example of tolerating and as adults, most of us tolerate too much.
A toleration is anything that you “put up with” - the things, people and situations that annoy you, frustrate you and drain your energy. It can be as small as a broken handle on a drawer to as big as a fear that stops you from living a joyful life. Once you become aware of what you are tolerating, you can then take action to eliminate your tolerations. The more tolerations you eliminate, the more time and energy you will gain in return! It’s amazing what can happen in your life when your energy isn’t being drained away like the air slowly leaking out of an inflated balloon.
What are you putting up with? What is draining your energy? Are you ready to feel lighter? Stop tolerating today!
