Some times in life things happen that you can't control. Now don't misunderstand. These things aren't all necessarily bad. Sometimes they are wonderful carmic events that change your life for the good.
When times get tough and the road long, always remember you have to reach your destination eventually. It might seem endless and fully of bumps and pot-holes, but it's there nevertheless.
Lately, I've been questing what's important in life. I've been pondering the way I think about things. It's possible that my thoughts hold the power to either encourage or discourage my health, happiness and general well-being.
Isn't it interesting that our own mind, just ours and ours alone, has such amazing power? If we can know that, why is it so difficult to reverse any negative thoughts and flood our brains with only goodness and light?
The answer is simple...
Because we're human! Unfortunately, it is in our nature to be skeptical. It is also normal to live occasionally by the "glass is half empty" way of thinking.
The problem comes from letting ourselves drown in the sorrow and self-ptty that attempts to take us over. It's easy to give up and crawl into the hole and hide forever. It's much harder to stand up, dust ourselves off and keep going.
The second example is worth it however. The rewards for sticking to the positive are endless. People who don't let themselves get caught up in the everyday drama that insists upon dragging us down.
So my call to action is this...
Try this for one week. Force your brain to eliminate the negative and embrace the positive. When you feel yourself getting sucked into the darkness, pull yourself out and run away as fast as you can. Keep telling yourself that you are worth it and you can do it.
If this doesn't help after a week, you haven't lost anything. That's the beauty of it. You have nothing to lose, but everything to gain. So try it, and let me know in the comment section or personal message how it works for you.
