Sunshine And Smiles Are Everywhere… Where's yours?
It's there I know it is! See…
Life is too short to be complacent and accept life-suck moments as reality. Yet as I write this, I know of many who are caught in this limiting belief. I used to be. It doesn't have to be that way!
The matrix of who I am today is one that, well, I believe for all purposes I must have decided to re-incarnate with the intention of cleaning up an incredible amount of karma and learn to enjoy life's adventures. I've learned that most of my experiences have offered me the insight of being a better person and have more to offer to those around me. This wouldn't have happened if I believed the concepts of being complacent and life sucks were to be my life's destiny.
There will always be life-suck moments. It's how you view them. Life offers us these as opportunities to grow. We can either "face our fears" (as my 8 year old grandson tells me he needed to do in order to go in front of his class and share) or we can believe the fears and doubts and doing so, they multiply! Aren't you ready to give up being your own worst enemy?
Its time for you to get off your duff! You've got more going for you than to settle!
Might you ask, "How would I know if I'm my own worst enemy?"
Check your inner dialogue. Are your thoughts more positive or negative? Do they include being supportive and looking at the events of your life as an opportunity… of blessings and gratitude? …Telling yourself that you're doing a good job? Are you listening to and believing that you're a great person who enjoys being you…even when times are tough? Are you treating you with the same respect that you would your best friend? Or do you often find yourself listening to beat-up, never enough, and blame? And then feel guilty??? Those thoughts that are self-defeating and negative - notice what you're thinking and then - make a new choice.
You're in charge of what you're thinking - as you change your thinking to thoughts that work for you rather than in opposition, you'll see that your life will too.
The greatest gift that you can give yourself is being your own best friend.
Imagine that … a life long friend … always and forever! Now that's something to get enthused about!
Sunshine and Smiles to you ...
