Hi guys, it’s Dr Liz here and Dr pPennyenny, I wanted to talk to you about something I’ve asked you to take a challenge, okay? Over the next seven days, I’d love for you to look at ways to shift your focus and improve your relationships, right? Um, after all, it’s the holidays and um, we’re being encouraged to, especially now to be thankful, um, things that you maybe take for granted. So here’s a clue, okay? What does one empty toilet paper roll and one squished up, mushed up tube toothpaste have to do with what I’m talking about? Okay. What it is is, is that these are possibly major yet minor irritants in your day to day lives. Maybe you go into the restroom and you find this instead of a nice full, um, roll of toilet paper waiting for you. Or you reach into the drawer and you find the toothpaste that’s squished in the middle or empty or missing cap instead of how you prefer maybe rolled up from the bottom. Why? Because you have a sweetheart in your life. You have people in your life. And what I’d love to do because what I hear day to day is I hear people complain, they empty tooth, they, they, they keep leaving the toilet paper empty or almost completely empty. Or I swear to God, if in the toothpaste that can like this, I’m just gonna like Chuck it. I’m done. What I’d love for you to do is to pay attention to your world. And when you find something like this, it shifted from irritation and anger to maybe appreciation or gratitude. I’m so lucky to have this person in my life, to have someone to squeeze the toothpaste from the middle. Um, I’m so fortunate that even though this toilet paper rolls, um, someone, my sweetheart, my husband, my wife, my spouse, my partner in my life to share with the good and the bad. Okay. And I’d love for you to, to use that. Give yourself a challenge, make it a fun game to walk through your home or your car or your life or your text messages, whatever is, and find a reason to flip it from being angry, irritated, to appreciation, to gratitude. For those of you that have kids, maybe you woke up today and you were tired, really, really tired because the little ones had you up and down. Or for our case we have now we have a critters. And so, um, for us it would be grandma Zoe that would be waking us up and the board of call it needs to go out. So rather than be angry or frustrated that I’m tired, maybe be grateful and appreciate that child or that person or that dog that’s been in your life all these years. And the reason why I’m saying this is that we can change our, our emotional state, um, in a blink of an eye if we flip these things around and focus on what’s good rather than storming into the kitchen or dragging yourself into the kitchen at the end of the day, um, I’m feeling frustrated cause you have to cook. Maybe just stop a moment, flip it around and say, I’m so lucky that I have people that want to come together with me and eat or I’m so fortunate that I have the skills and then we have the food. So, and the in, you know, in the family or the friends to sit down, not that hard yet for the human, the human beast, so to speak. We tend to focus on what we don’t like and we tend to gloss over what we do like or what’s good in our life. So are you up for the challenge? Try it as long as you can. Couple days, seven days, two weeks. It’s all about for you. Please continue it through the holidays, out into the rest of 2020. Find the things that bug you and turn it around to appreciation, gratitude, thankfulness. You’ll love it. They will love it. Um, and you’ll find that your relationship will be a whole lot smoother. Okay. All right. So go on home. Um, walk through the door and see what you can shift your focus from being upset and mad to maybe being smiling. Funny. Appreciating that they’re there, that they are there in your life. Take care. Dr penny is a, she says bye. He’s getting ready for her post afternoon nap. Um, and checkout my focus with dr liz.com.
