Experience Gratitude

Experience gratitude in your life. Be thankful for all the gifts in your life, and all the reasons you are appreciative. Think of the people who you are so fortunate to have, and think of yourself and how far you have come. Feel from the love in your heart, and let go of the pain. “Relinquish all regrets, grievances, and resentments. Choose the miracle.” – Deepak Chopra

Have the intention, and go with the choice to forgive, and move from the pain. Choose to be happy, and choose to live a fulfilling life, one dedicated to love, understanding, and positivity.

We are our greatest challenge, and our greatest asset. How we perceive the world ultimately determines how we see it.

See the world for the beauty that it holds, and live a life of gratefulness, peace, and happiness.

Stop the worry. Stop the stress.

Stop worrying, and stop stressing – they’re not good for you, and they do nothing for your cause. If something is causing you worry or stress, remove it from you. Worrying or stressing about something will not work to your benefit, it will do quite the opposite. Either way, if it is something that has to get done, it will get done – and that will be up to you to do it.

Whatever it is you have to do, do it out of love, and be grateful to be in the situation of doing it – whatever it may be. Enjoy what life puts in front of you, and make the best of it. At the end of the day, everything is going to be alright. There are certain situations where this is difficult, and may not apply – but the more we apply these ideals, the easier our lives will be.

Stress and worry is a disease that we carry with us, and for many of us, we have been taught and/or taught ourselves to live this way. But just as we were taught these things, we can unlearn them, and evolve into new patterns and habits that will benefit us greatly.

As soon as we begin to break the chains, is the moment we begin to break free from the things that hold us back. It is a choice, and we can take charge of our lives. It is a journey, and it will not be easy (for things take time to unlearn) but we will continue to grow each moment we choose better alternatives. May your day be calm, mellow, stress-free and happy.

 

The World is what you see

“Your thoughts are your reality” – I am told this in everything I am reading, studying, hearing, watching…it must be true!

I’m not sure what to believe anymore, and as they all say “fear” will bring us back to what is comfortable, our old thoughts and habits.

I’m trying to do my best to live in the present, to live in the moment, to enjoy every second, and forget about the past and stop worrying about the future. I realize now that I have many problems that I have always had. Many things that have happened in my life have created the way that I have become. But I don’t have to continue to let those things hurt me. I can change, just like everyone else can.

The information is just overwhelming, and the constant realizations that I have thought the wrong way for so long is really hard to deal with sometimes, but it’s okay. Nothing can change overnight, so neither can I. Patience is a virtue right now. Slowly, day by day it will get better – it is just fighting everything inside of me to not resort back to my old ways of thinking and seeing the world. It is much easier to drown in sorrow, and feel like the world is against you – than it is to say, “I create my own reality”.

Some of this is hard for me to believe right now, because I did not choose for many of the things that have happened in my life – however if our thoughts really do create our reality, then who knows…All I know is now I am starting to believe, and I am being positive (trying to at least) and much more hopeful of the good that is to come. I am experiencing a change in my attitude, and beginning to see results. I feel as if I keep going on this journey, and continue to learn, and read, and write, and listen – I will create the life that I want, and in doing so the world I envision.

We are only responsible for ourselves, and so only ourselves we can change. We can change our thoughts, our dreams, our lives, and our routines. Knowing this now, puts me at ease. I still struggle with what others are doing around me, but that too shall pass (I hope.)

Sticking with it is the hard part, but just like the rest – patience…move slow…believe…I have nothing to lose.
