It’s what you make it…life. Do you choose to be appreciative? Are you happy for a sunny day or a hot cup of coffee? Or are those things just “mundane” and they don’t count? Are you sitting there just moping around and waiting to win the lottery or for your old rich uncle to kick the bucket? Do you figure that having all that cash will finally make you happy?
Well guess what…it won’t. Well, it will for a little while but then that feeling will wear off and you’ll be moping around again looking for some more rich relatives to pass away.
Be happy now! Be grateful now. Cultivate an attitude of appreciation. It will each day feel special and you won’t have to wait for a funeral.
Are you taking some time..to connect with your inner self? Do you pay attention to that little voice when it calls to you? Or do you close it off and instead listen to the voice of others.
Now listening to others is not a bad thing- we can learn valuable lessons form others. But when somebody is giving you advice and that little voice is literally screaming no, no. no- then perhaps it’s time to start listening to that inner you- because that is the best possible advice to take.
They belong to you. Your thoughts and your ideas so pay attention to them when they flash through your mind. Pay attention to all the little “signals” that the universe sends you- the ones you tend to discount because you think it’s “just your imagination”
Your imagination is a fountain from which dreams spring forth. Your dreams. Your ideas.
So instead of saying “Oh, it’s just my imagination,” say something like “Okay, now how can I proceed to bring this idea into fruition.” And then let those ideas flow to you.
Just a little dab will do you..a little dab of kindness.
A friend of mine has an older family in the hospital, and this lady was scared. They give out little teddy bears to the little kids when they come in, but nobody thought to give one to this older lady except this one one orderly who grabbed on and gave it to the woman.
She immediately calmed down and hugged the little bear until she fell asleep peacefully. After that, she hung onto that stuffed toy and it comforted her. And so did the orderly, who made it a point to visit her each day after his shift.
Do you keep track? Do you write down your goals? If not, why not?
Just the act of writing then down makes them more concrete. The idea of crossing things you’ve gotten done is very motivating. Get yourself the kind of notebook you like and the kind of writing instrument you like. Make it a pleasurable experience to keep a goal list. Keep it with you and review and update as you see fit.
The act of writing things down helps us immeasurably. Why not give it a try and see if it works for you.
Will it be up or down? Your journey through this life?
Will every setback destroy you; every mistake bring you misery? Will a chance remark deflate you? If you let it then it will. You will always be at the bottom of the steps looking up, but you will never climb to a higher level.
The world is full of setbacks. We all make mistakes. And there’s always somebody saying the “wrong thing” You’re not going to get away from it unless you choose to live in a bubble. And how much fun would that be? Probably not much.
Learn from your mistakes and climb. Let people talk. Ignore it…and climb.
Why not try something different today? Why not have a different kind of breakfast, or try a different kind of drink at your coffee place? Why not take another route to work or wherever you’re going and see some different scenery?
They say that variety is the spice of life so why not add a little zing into your life today?
