Be Able to Choose Your Thoughts

IMG_5438

 

Hello everyone,

Thanks for stopping by today!

I wanted to do a reminder post about how important it is to think happier and uplifting thoughts.

So here are some quick do’s and don’ts for your thoughts:

DO

thank others who are helping you.

repeat positive affirmations on a daily basis

encourage yourself by saying, “you CAN do it!”

look in the mirror and say nice things to yourself

put some of your earnings into tithing

read more uplifting books and articles

DON’T

wake up with a complaint

judge others based on their looks

watch the news (it’s filled with fearful tactics)

blame your family for your short-coming’s

think small of yourself

There have been times when I would hear troubling stories from a friend or relative. At first, it’s hard to come up with the right things to say, especially when you know that they’re in such a vulnerable spot. I usually listen with an open ear and an intention that after all of this passes, only good will manifest into their lives.

For me, I usually say the truth and what I feel about the situation. Then I figure a plan of action which usually requires some affirmations and a change of thought pattern. Overtime, if they DO remember to choose positive thoughts, their life can become significantly better. It’s a habit that must be formed just as it is to brush your teeth every day. If you don’t do it every day, you’ll simply forget to do it.

Not being able to help or encourage someone is tough, especially if it’s a person that I know and love. However, I do believe in timing and that all realizations and mind-clarity will come at a certain time and place. For every person on this planet, certain situations can happen at any given time. We don’t have a specific timeline that shows when this or that will happen, but I do believe that we can shape those situations from being detrimental into a learning experience.

I am reminded every day that our thoughts literally unveil our future. I am an example of that because I saw how my life changed from thinking negative thoughts in the morning to positive thoughts in thoughts in the morning. Before, I’d wake up and the first thought was a either a complaint about having to wake up too early or how awful it will be at work that week. Those negative thoughts are immensely harmful for your own well-being and it lets the Universe know that you are unhappy, ungrateful and not deserving of the many blessings that life has to offer. So chose the better thoughts, always.

My thoughts and prayers go to the victims of the Oklahoma tornado and for all people suffering from natural disasters. Much peace to you and your loved ones and you’re in our thoughts.

Be Able to Take in the Good

There are events that happen to us out of nowhere that can bump us out of our happiness path. We typically aren’t ready for it and it comes at an unpleasant time. This even personally happened to me this past week and it wasn’t easy.  In a nutshell, my former colleague who has tremendously helped me a lot this past year was treated unfairly this past week. It especially hurts when you’ve become so close and admire that person you work with, so it’s hard to pinpoint as to how you begin to digest the whole process.

After hours of thinking, I had to get back on my path of happiness and peace. Therefore, I began with my thoughts by taking in all the good that this experience has brought me. I came up with several positive outcomes that this event has taught me which in turn has helped me a lot.

Taking in the good from a good or bad experience is something positive that we can get into the habit of.  Instead of only seeing the bad in a particular situation, we can also see the good in it. The lessons we learn and the experience we gain throughout our lifetime is priceless and no one can take that away from us.

Being optimistic about a negative situation also helps a lot. Adversely, don’t be afraid to feel the pain that a negative situation comes with. We are human and we often can’t hide how we really feel, so express those feelings and get back on the happiness path. In the long run, our positive mindset with bring us so much further than our negative beliefs.

Here are some positive affirmations to allow the good in any situation (Inspired by Louise L. Hay):

I am at peace and the Universe loves me.

I am divinely protected.

I surrender my worries and problems to the Universe.

All is well. Everything is working out for my highest good. Out of this situation only good will come. I am safe.

The Universe knows my every need and provides me with it at the right time and the right place.

Here’s to a great week and let the sun shine in!

Be patient

 

I am a firm believer in situations happening at the right time and place for any individual. One cannot foresee it or even imagine it happening without a strong intuition but it happens. When this new situation does happen, it can be an awakening. Awakenings teach us something new that we’ve never learned before, it is that “Aha!” moment in our lives that we can either take with a grain of salt or take it with the utmost acceptance.

Everyone in this lifetime strives for something, whether it be a peaceful lifestlye, a perfect career, passive income, that amazing body, or all unlimited happiness. Funny thing is… you CAN have it if you consciously choose to let it be a part of your life. Consciously choosing it means that you live and breathe what you want or would like to see manifest into your life. Whether it be repeating an affirmation or visualizing it in your heads.

To have something you want, you have to be willing to hustle. Back in the day, hustle meant to cheat people and steal them off their earnings. Nowadays, the meaning has turned into a lifestyle or way to make it to the top. Hustle in my opinion, is the work that an average person does not do because of blind fear. Hustle brings out the core of an individual and shows how much they want something to come into their lives in due time.

Therefore, don’t be afraid to want it all and having to do put in hard work because in due time, the best things in life are free and the other things will just be things.
