Drama, drama, drama, is it all around you? Could you be provoking it or at least energizing it a bit? Like I said in the article, it is really important to be honest if you want to put the fire out if it seems to be blazing in your life.

How can you dowse these flames? The article offers many suggestions but first and foremost self-awareness is fundamental to your success.

If you are aware of the drama, the chaos that is center stage in your life, STOP it! Figure out how to get your adrenaline rush from healthy sources like exercise instead. If you are channeling energy into the drama of others, WHY are you doing this?

Negativity attracts negativity. You have to stop feeding the beast and instead release its shackles and engage proactively in creating peace in your life; shed light on the darkness.

The source, TinyBuddha.com offers many quotes about drama, this one by Eckhart Tolle sums it up nicely, “When you are not honoring the present moment by allowing it to be, you are creating drama.”

It seems difficult to honor the present moment when we have other people in our lives and, of course, we cannot control them. But, once we are able to surrender to the fact that we do not need to control others and all we need to do is control ourselves, then we take our power back from drama. This is key to unraveling the knot of chaos and to manifesting balance.

Does any of this make sense to you? Do you think it will make a difference in your life? Give it a try and let me know if it works out or not.
