Flustered positivity

Sometimes others make us flustered. Sometimes it’s not on purpose, sometimes the person doesn’t realise they’re doing it. But sometimes they do do it on purpose. Sometimes they want to rattle you for their own gain.

Realise this is an outside force to you, and as with outside forces, how you choose to react is up to you. Do you let them get you flustered? No. You choose not to let them affect you, and you choose to focus on your own issues at hand.

Often the underlying reason for people wanting to fluster you is negative. They feel threatened, or they have an ego that needs feeding. You don’t have to give them the time of day.

Or, depending on the situation, you can take all that negative energy, that motion, and turn it to your own advantage. Just don’t get flustered in the process.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
