Linda Adsetts and The Group are here with their weekly Go for the Joy message. Enjoy!
The definition of snark given to me by Bliss Habits is this; giving voice to the feisty, straight talking beacon of authenticity with us. Everything else I have read suggests something a little less kind with more sarcasm than straight talking authenticity.
I think I much prefer Bliss Habit’s take on it. A little bit of feisty is needed when you are stuck on a plateau of indecision. It can get you and others moving along! I don’t know about you but I was always taught to be nice, play nice, get along and don’t cause trouble. What is it with nice?
Have you ever considered that nice can get you stuck in a pile of dung. Not everyone plays nice and yet when we decide we are nice, then we have already decided we had better play nice. Sometimes the playing field needs a little snark, as defined by Bliss Habits. Not everyone plays nice and those that don’t will take advantage of your definition of yourself as nice.
But what if when faced with a situation where we are being taken advantage of that we introduce a little snark, maybe both definitions! If we are infinite beings, and we are, then as that, we can use all energies in response to a situation not as a reaction to a situation.
Consider this; if you define yourself as nice then you are limiting yourself and you expect others to be like you. As a consequence, we can get blindsided by others who don’t play nice and that my friends is not so nice!
What if we chose a little snark, in response when others aren’t playing nice with us. Kids do it all the time, until we teach them to be nice. What if we taught them to choose? Sometimes a good verbal whack back is what is needed to restore order. It says to others, don’t mess with me!
Now that is feisty! You don’t have to be mean but you can choose it in a moment to convey your unwillingness to be taken advantage of. Then you can choose to use nice. We get to choose who we are in each moment. Sometimes it could be nice and sometimes it could be snarky and sometimes it could be plain old feisty and sometimes it could be a little is in order.
So dear ones, if you are to be your authentic self which is you, then you, as an infinite being is all things. It doesn’t meant you use it all but it does mean that you recognize it is all there to be used, when needed, in response and not in reaction. At some point you will find that you are all things and you will recognize it in everyone. You will not be disappointed by others. You will just notice who they be in a moment and then you get to choose your next response.
Maybe that next response is some snark. Maybe it is quietly turning away. The point is that you get to choose and until you recognize that your choices are infinite, you will limit yourself and your creating.
The truth is dear ones that the truth for you-always feels lighter-your very own internal compass-how cool is that?
