Be Able to Recognize the Good
This past weekend was a blessing for me!
I was with my mom and she told me a story about how her great-grandmother was a firm believer of the Law of Attraction. Of course, that’s not what it was called back then. However, the main strength of the message is the same. That message was, “If you think good thoughts, good things will happen and if you think bad thoughts, bad thoughts will happen.” The “self-fulfilling prophecy” or “karma”as others call it as well. There are many different interpretations and sayings but the main message is the best and most important part.
I’m sure a lot of us may (or may not) believe in this in some way or another but do we really remember to play it out on a daily basis?
I know some days it can be hard to turn the other cheek, especially if we’re having an “off” day and I think that’s completely normal. But if we’re continuously beating or belittling ourselves on a regular basis, then it can create serious effects. Being able to recognize the good simply means, being grateful and taking a second or two to actually look around you and notice your breath, that you have your vision and/or sense of smell. We often take those amazing things for granted and sometimes we have to step back and say, Hey! I am perfectly healthy and happy and at the end of the day that’s all that matters.
Here are some ways to recognize the good in your life:
- Think of 3 things that went smoothly in the past 5 hours.
- Look up at the sky and make a positive intention.
- Inhale in and feel your chest expand with an abundance of air.
- Write down some things your grateful for and just be thankful for those things/events.
- Hang a nice picture up and let it remind you of the good you have in your life.
- Play with your pets.
- Think highly of the ones you love.
I am really grateful that my mom was able to share that little story with us, it’s as if she too was awakened to think outside the box of abundant possibilities. For that, I am happy.
