I feel super grateful to know quite a few drama free peeps – what a blessing and a gift it is.
And when I encounter peeps who invite me into drama, these days I decline the invitation. Talk about liberation! Such an awesome way to set ourselves free. 🙂
Even when what peeps would call drama is in my world, if I don’t respond like it’s a drama, it can be drama free. What comes to mind is when my Dad died, and Mum had a bad fall on the night of the funeral, then a stroke three weeks later (right in front of me) and was touch and go for several weeks, then 24/7 care where we all took turns to be carer, and brilliantly timed her cat needed an op and 10 days of recovery care at home. And all the way through all of this I was immersed in family dynamics and menopause and my marriage was breaking down. Intense? Yes. Drama? Actually, no. It didn’t feel like that at all. 10-20 years ago I would have fallen into the ‘drama’ of it all! These days I am relieved to have a completely different perspective that is much kinder to me and everyone else.
So much so that when I was pulled over by the police while ‘under the influence’ of a severe flu taking my injured Mum on a long drive for essential medical care just a few days after the funeral, I calmly thanked the police officer for doing his job – and I actually meant it. Even in the midst of the intensity of multiple life challenges squeezed into that moment, and a $425 fine (I was in a 60km zone and thought I was in a 100km zone), I actually felt gratitude for the dude. It was my instant, natural, drama-free response. (Mum was quite impressed!)
Life can certainly be a litmus test, showing us how far we have come or how far we have yet to go.
I’m happy and relieved to have proof of my progress, to be floating along in my peace bubble and to be contributing that to the planet 🙂
One of the most delightful compliments I’ve ever had about my progress was during a workshop by a well respected workshop facilitator I sponsored from the U.S. who had observed me over a period of time and come to know me quite well. One of the participants asked how to reduce the amount of drama in her world. After hearing his answer she said, “But how do I do that?” He replied, “Watch how Maia does it.”
A far cry from having started out being quite a melodramatic one in my early years. I’d like to give myself a high five!
Thank God for guides and teachers, awareness, living in the question, fierce commitment to self-evolution and unplugging from the matrix!
I highly recommend all of it!
