There is no question and answer today, but rather a message. I am working on this very thing with a client and I wanted to share it with you all.
Your thoughts are more powerful than you realize.
No one has a perfect life, no matter what their Instagram page may tell you. 🙂 Everyone is dealing with something. EVERYONE has some area of their life they would like to change. We all have moments of doubt. Times when we look around and wonder, “How the F$%K did I get here?” and we all have things we would rather forget about than deal with.
Chaos, change, turmoil… all of these are to be expected over the course of your life. It’s how you handle the inevitable roller coaster that matters.
I choose to focus on what is working, rather than on what is not. I by no means am telling you to ignore your difficulties or shuck responsibility for things that need to be dealt with. Please don’t read this and decide that you can “think” yourself into paying your light bill with your thought up bank account! 😉 What you CAN do is be grateful for having the ability to pay the bill rather than focus on the lack of money you will have after you pay it.
Focus on the fact that you have a job in this economy rather than being upset that it’s not the one you want right now.
Be grateful for the car that drives you to pick up your child, instead of being upset that it’s 15 years old and rusted.
I am asking you to begin to cultivate an attitude of gratitude.
To let go of that constant nagging voice in your head that is telling you, “I don’t have enough.” To be happy that you have more than most. Be ambitious. Always strive to do better. But learn to be content with where you are right at this moment. Do that, and watch as more comes to you. Thank the Universe, God, the Easter bunny for all I care, for what you have today. And watch your tomorrow become better than you thought possible.
Think in terms of abundance and watch as abundance appears.
Try it…the worst that happens is you wind up exactly the same as you are right now. The best? You actually wind up with the life you deserve.
