One thought

It only takes a thought to change the direction of your life.

Think about that for a minute! One simple thought has the power to completely change the path we will walk for years to come, either positively or negatively. It is true, that we have been conditioned by our families, our teachers, our peers, and our society to think certain ways, but we also have the inner power to completely retrain ourselves into a new life!
We’ve all heard about the study where a class of below average students were told they were exceptional and their grades improved. The problem with that is the thought was planted by someone else. It has worked that way for years, we get told something by someone, and it becomes our inner voice, our thoughts. Unfortunately, these thoughts aren’t always beneficial ones as with the class. More often than not, these thoughts are negative. So how do we begin the process of retraining our thoughts?
We begin with the self-talk. Those thoughts that we think about ourselves all day, every day. When we look in the mirror, we teach ourselves to see the beauty in our self, instead of everything we wished we could change. When we make a mistake, instead of berating ourselves, we talk kindly and look for the positives in the situation. We tell ourselves we can do this or we do deserve that instead of that dialect of fear that says we can’t or don’t. We always use the kind and gentle words with ourselves instead of the harsh ones. We talk to ourselves they way we wished others would talk to us. We become our own best friend. Pretty soon, this new way of thinking expands and spills out into the world, in to the lives of those around us, and flows like a river for everyone to think from.
Tomorrow when you wake up, go to the mirror and begin your New Year with 5 kind thoughts about yourself. Each time you look in the mirror after that, have 3 kind thoughts about yourself. Before you go to bed, have 5 more kind thoughts about yourself. Repeat this every day after that until you retrain the inner voice to be as kind and compassionate to yourself, as you are to others.

It only takes a thought to change the direction of your life.

No Fear…

This seems to be a theme that keeps coming up for me; the universe’s not-so-subtle way of telling me that I need to learn the lesson!
We have had a wild two years, jammed full or high ups and very low downs. As I look back on now, after everything I have learned from the people who have entered and left my life, I have come to realize, I created all of it. I was the on who orchestrated the entire journey, both good and bad.
So I have to ask myself… If I created it, why did I add in the bad parts, why suffer through the hurt, pain, and sadness? Simple answer, fear!
I had fears that I was unable to conquer or refused to face at those times. I feared I was not good enough, that I could not make it by myself, that I would fail, that I was not strong enough. I also feared what others would think of me, how they would respond to me, or how they would treat me. The truth of the matter is, I allowed the fear of what could be to change my choices and thereby change the future in which I created.
A young lady I know posted a meme today that said, “Pain changes a person”. Pain is just an emotion, it nor any other emotion can not change anything. What happens is we allow the fear of pain to motivate us to change who we are in the hopes that we will not be hurt again. Problem is, there will always be pain,
There will always be some sort of emotion that we do not want to feel in our life, be it hurt, pain, sadness, loneliness, even failure. They will always be right around the corner; it’s the human experience. However, we have a choice in how we approach them. We can either choose to fear them, allow ourselves to be motivated to change who we are and how we react to the situation and our world; Or we can face those emotions and the fear head on, allow ourselves to live through the situation, embrace and feel the emotions, take lessons from them that will make us stronger, and then choose to release the effects of them that are not beneficial to us.
Looking back on the last two years, and even the rest of my life, I can point out so many times that I allowed fear to motivate me into changing how I reacted to situations and to people. It could have changed my life in so many ways had I faced fear at those times, but that in itself is fear or what-could-have-been, and I am more than satisfied and overjoyed with my life and the people who are in it.
It is regrettable that it has taken me so long to learn the lesson, but one thing is for certain… I will no longer allow fear to motivate me to change my actions or reactions any longer!
