Have you ever felt squeezed in certain situations or in making a choice?
I had that happen just recently when I called for technical help on my site and noticed brakes screeching on the inside.
I felt that tightening in my chest when I asked a question on a specific problem I was having on my site and they weren’t able to help. Instead, I was referred to another area that wanted me to sign up for a month of technical support.
I was as polite as I could be in declining their offer and hung up after ‘mildly’ expressing my disappointment. I felt a difference this time. Before, in techy issues I would panic and fret knowing only enough to get me in trouble. This time, I felt a calm, though noticed the squeeze but didn’t respond to it. I decided to sit on it and check out some things on the internet and revisit it again the next day.
I wrote a few years back on a Dr. Wayne Dyer story where he talks about squeezing oranges and asked what comes out when you squeeze an orange. I guess I noticed it this time – the squeeze and the feeling that came out. But, I was able, in noticing, catch it and respond differently. Maybe, I am learning and changing a little here and there. Good for me to take stock. I’m not there, yet, but I’m better than before.

As a result, what unfolded is a few days later a fellow blogger posted an article that related to my problem and I was able to fix it. I love when answers come much easier when I get out of the way.
