Our #happiness may lie with our cell phones. The cell phone is one of the greatest inventions, and we can all learn to manage our lives like we manage our cell phones. In trying to live our best lives, we must figure out how to live and focus on the things that are important to us.
You are in Control
You are in complete control of your cell phone, and you manage its use the way you see fit. It has a power button that you can turn on and off, and you do so at will. You can choose to turn on notifications, or you can silence the phone. There are just so many ways that we control the phone. It is unbelievable.
Use Your Power Button
The #Power button allows you to turn your cell phone on or off. That means you choose whether or not you want to answer calls. The uniqueness of the phone enables messages to be stored even though it’s turned off. This feature gives you a choice to respond on your own time. You don’t need permission to use this button, and it protects your #Peace.
You are the Power button to your life. You can choose to turn it off. That is, you turn off the noise and distractions so that you can carry on with your life undisturbed and in Peace. You set boundaries, focus on the task at hand, and do it. On your best life journey, you must know when to use your Power button. You must know when to take a vacation or go off the grid for a while and rejuvenate.
The Mute Button
The Mute button on your cell phone is for your comfort, so you can choose to hear the rings or notification sounds. And look at the genius of the cell phone creators, you can see the incoming calls or notifications, but there is not audio announcing them.
When your cell phone rings, you choose whether or not to answer. You can do the same with your life. You hear and see, but you don’t always have to respond. You set softer boundaries with the Mute button while the Power Button sets harder limits. Remember, you don’t have to say yes to every request. And before you start going umm, you don’t have to apologize for not saying yes to every call. Choose your yes. This is an awareness that you must have in living your #bestlife.
There are superbugs and super many other things but not superhumans. What does this mean for you? Take full control, establish clear boundaries, and manage your life.
Sometimes folks will say mean things to you, and this could be a boss, friend, or stranger. It does not matter. You treat these situations like your phone. Let it ring and ring and ring. Eventually, the call will go to voicemail. You don’t have to respond until you are ready to do so. We tend to look at our cell phones in these situations and either hit the mute button or pass the call directly to voicemail. Please do the same with these folks; you choose to either mute their call or send them to voicemail. Doing this will give you the time you need to absorb this experience and bring you Peace about the way you manage your life. This is a best life practice that will keep you #happy.
Go to Voicemail
Go directly to voicemail means you will deal with it later. Therefore, there is no emergency for you here. Unsolicited calls and telemarketers go straight to voicemail, and then when you have a chance, you block that number. They will not disturb your Peace again. In real life, you have some human unsolicited contacts and telemarketers that court you. Put them directly to voice mail, and when you are ready, you deal with them on your terms. Guard your heart and your life
Let it Ring
Sometimes you can’t get to the ringing phone because your physical location is not the same. Here, you have no choice but to let it ring. You must do the same when you are not physically able to do something you are being asked to do. Some things in life you just have to let go and be Okay. Find your Peace in letting it go and continue to live your life.
The Answer Button
The Answer button is the most used feature on the cell phone. Here you exercise your choice. You answer the calls that are important to you. This is the same in life as you embrace your experiences. Show up; be present and live in the now. It is as if this is your #happyplace.
