I was determined to turn this around.
I’d had one bad experience after another with FLOW Trinidad and Tobago, culminating in today’s experience when I tried to take my concerns to someone who could DO something about my situation!
Not ever someone who likes to talk – for talk sake, I really wondered how I could remain joyful after literally CHOKING on my saliva when the receptionist told me that she could not transfer my call for me to handle things myself. I felt defeated. I thought that I just might be able to help others based on my situation but obviously this was pointless. I was fighting a losing battle. I sat with my journal open, pen in hand, trying to find something good out of my experience and then the following came to me and I wrote it down:
F – Feel L – Learn O – Own W – Work
And then I put it to the test. My day was not going to plan and my FLOW experience didn’t help things along – what did I have to lose?
What was I feeling in the moment? I wrote everything down
What can I learn? What is there for me to see about this situation that I may not be seeing yet? What is important or meaningful to me about this event or circumstance?
Next I needed to own why I had allowed myself to derail. I jotted down – in order for my life to change, I must change and I must change it. If I don’t express my gifts I feel unfulfilled and insignificant…without purpose. Only when I’m making a valuable contribution, influencing and inspiring lives or preparing to do so, do I feel WHOLE.
Work – what do I need to work on next to demonstrate my willingness to feel WHOLE?
And that brought me to sharing this with you today – what I have decided to call the FLOW System™ proving Romans 8: 28 right that ALL things do work together for GOOD – we just have to look for it!
