“SHUT THAT %$@!!# DOG UP!”
That’s how the guy across the hall at our hotel woke us up – screaming and banging on the door of the room next to ours.
Change your thinking. Change your results.
We were in Alabama for my mother’s funeral.
We decided to get a hotel room because the family ‘crush’ was just too much for my dad.
The Drury Inn on 280 is close to dad’s house – and also a pet-friendly hotel.
Whoever was staying in the room next to us had a dog who was alone in the room for whatever reason — and not happy about it.
The guy screaming and pounding only made it worse.
I didn’t know what do to, but I DID know that I was NOT down for an angry confrontation on THAT morning of all mornings.
So, I got out my phone and started playing meditation music.
Then I had one of those 💡lightbulb moments to prop it up near the bottom of adjoining door thinking maybe if the dog could hear the soothing music it might calm him down a bit.
I was surprised, but shouldn’t have been.
- Anger can’t open doors.
- Screaming and shouting does not solve problems.
- Escalating situations is never the way to de-escalate them.
Change your thinking.
Change your results.
I hope you have a wonderful day.
Meditation music is incredible for relaxation, mindshift and an overall sense of peace and focus.
If you haven’t tried it – or maybe it’s just been a while – check out this 4-album set from Amazon.
And please share your results!!
