Being Able To Say “I Surrender”….

Today I Appreciate….

  • Being Able To Say “I Surrender” – “UNCLE, UNCLE!” Remember saying those words when you were a kid? Usually it had to do with someone giving you an Indian Burn, or a Purple Nurple, or having your head squeezed in a good old fashion head lock.

You would say those words ONLY as a last resort, you would hold out until the last possible millisecond, when you just could not take it anymore, THEN and ONLY then would you say it.

And when you finally SAID them…”Oh brother”! There was such shame in uttering those words. Just in the knowing that other people heard you say them out loud.

That you heard yourself say them out loud… “ugh” 🙁

Today, I have no problem saying the words, in fact I appreciate them very much. I say it to the Universe but I’m really saying it myself. I’m poking fun at the fact that I’ve been riding myself for the few minutes either verbally or mentally, with worry about this or that, and that I’ve been essentially giving MYSELF a Purple Nurple! 😯 Not an ACTUAL one but certainly a mental one.

So I cry out to the Universe and thus myself those dreaded words that are no longer dreaded “UNCLE, UNCLE!” and I immediately feel smile come on my face and I feel better.

As Abraham says: “Just give it up!”
