Over the past few weeks I have been reminded of how powerful our thoughts can be. I sat in a meeting where I listened to people have the opportunity to change the course of things and all I heard was negativity. Shit happens people, but do you really want to hold on to it?
There’s always a choice, right? Romance, work, family, illness, friends, home, money; the list is endless. We may not always have complete control over things in our lives but our actions are our decisions to make.
If you want to dwell in heartbreak then do so. You can hold on to the pain for as long as you want. That is your choice. But, what about what happened before your heart went snap, crackle, POP. It’s so easy to forget, isn’t it. Often we hold so tightly onto the pain that any laughter or joy gets erased from the pages of our past. Why? You can choose how you feel through your thoughts, it’s true.
Money. Tricky subject. If you constantly believe you’re skint, well, you will be. Nothing will change. Time will pass, you’ll live from pay check to pay check, with constant anxiety and frustration. Nothing will change, unless you let it happen.
It’s so easy to lash out, to place blame at the feet of others. I see it time and time again. Stop and take a moment. Listen to people. Does that negativity ever profit anyone?
Take a moment now. Where is negativity holding you back? Your relationship. Work. Money. Family. Friends. If you took the time to turn things on their head and see them from a different light, could they be different?
I don’t want to be a self-fulfilling prophecy. Do you?
