Keeping Our Agreements

My book for the month of September has been “Let It Be Easy” by Tolly Burkan.  The book states that one of the ways to let it be easy is by “keeping our agreements.”

That makes sense.  If we say we are going to do something, we should do it, also keeping in mind that we have to give ourselves permission to change an agreement that no longer serves us.  Maybe it is Sunday dinner with the in-laws, that you have attended every year for decades.

We also make unconscious “agreements” with Life about how things will be.  We might have agreements about used cars, relationships, money, and our physical bodies.  The agreements could also be called our beliefs.

What happens when the agreements no longer work for us?  We can, and must change them.  Click below to listen to my talk on this subject.
