Hello My Friends,
I don’t know if it’s the new year or just life in general but so many things in life just don’t seem to go the way I’d wish for them to go. I read, study, listen, absorb, pray, practice, work, pray some more, but it just seems so many things are still off kilter. I’m probably sharing too much so I won’t go into gruesome details but I have decide to do something very different than I have all the years of my life. I have always been a pretty positive person over all – it just makes me happy – but sometimes I think it’s not enough. I have recently become aware that it is our subconscious that drives the majority of our decisions, and our decisions drives our behavior, and our behavior drives our life. There’s much more to this but to be brief (just for now) I have decided to try something that I have never done. It is something that may seem small but from what I have read over and over again, it is one of the critical and major decisions a person can do.
For the next 6 months, I am going to TRY my best, my very, very, best, to think positive thoughts the majority of the time. At work, at home, in the car, in my deepest, saddest moments. All day, every day for the next 180 days I am going to try to block out any negative thought that tries to barge in and drag me out of the sunshine. I truly have no idea how well this is going to go or how successful I’ll be at actually switching my mind to where ugliness cannot live in any form, but I’m going to try. I’m going to see how/if my life changes and to what degree. I want to see the impact of positivity and how my life will vary 6 months from this day – January 8th, 2018. I will update the progress on how this is going and God willing, things will be the BEST they have ever been overall in my life starting NOW!!
Maybe you could do this challenge along with me. You can post comments below on how you’re doing along the way. And after 6 months if we all aren’t better off for it, then we can always go back to letting the drag-me-down-this-totally-sucks-steal-my-joy thoughts back in anytime afterwards, but I’m really hoping we will never be there again – at least to a lesser degree than we are now, and that’s a start. A very beautiful start to a very beautiful life that is there just waiting for us to walk in and say “Come with me! You’re mine!”
