“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” Maria Robinson
I regret nothing in my life. Even if my past was full of hurts, I still look back and smile because what I am today is because of my past. It made me stronger and stronger.
The nature of our thoughts determines the quality of our life-whether it is sad, happy and contented. Happy, optimistic, positive thoughts, emotions and feelings generate a zing in our system which makes the blood flow freely and heart beat joyously. They create a spring in our feet and spur us to action.
We keep mulling over our misfortunes, the perceived wrongs committed to us by those who we have loved and stood by so sincerely. We never stop cursing ourselves for the mistakes that we think we have committed. What would have happened if I had done this or that? What would happen if I do this or that in future?
This is not to suggest we should not learn from our past mistakes or plan our future intelligently. The only thing is we should stop thinking over and over once we have learnt from our past and decided about our future.
We can always choose to perceive things differently. You can focus on what’s wrong in your life or you can focus on what’s right. – Marianne Williamson
Positive thoughts create more abundance. If you want better relationships, to be more successful in your career or to find a level of happiness that brings you peace and comfort, then focusing on what is right, on what is positive in your life, is a good start. Negative thoughts, on the other hand, contribute to feelings of dissatisfaction, disappointment and defeat. You think the worst – and then it happens. Learning how to change your negative thoughts is the difference-maker between living a life filled with frustration and one filled with confidence.
Make the most of every moment because life can change in an instant. While the present moment may be uncomfortable, it is the only one that is guaranteed. Look beyond the present problem and find the moments that are worth enjoying and then savor each one. Accept the fact you are human, wonderfully, beautifully human, and then embrace your mistake as an opportunity to learn something new about yourself, and others. By becoming aware of your mistakes, you are able to move past them and prevent regret from keeping you stuck in the past.
Keep focused. Stay on your path. When you feel your positive attitude slipping away, hold yourself accountable for getting it back on track. No one wants your goals and dreams more than you do – and it’s going to take a positive attitude to make your dreams come true. It’s up to you to walk your path.
I am SAD.
I am sad since morning. I can’t think of the reason why, but I am sad. At work I was sad, even driving back from work I was sad. But then lightening struck me, well not literally ofcourse (as I am still writing this post)*.
*Lame Alert!!! Apologies!
This lightening told me to accept my sadness and instead express gratitude to all the good things I have in life. Believe me its a task specially when you are feeling down already, but I forced myself to thank the car, the empty roads, a good productive day at work, completed tasks, healing class tomorrow…
It’s always good to feel and accept all of our emotions, even the ones we think are negative. They need an outlet and if not released can cause even more negative emotions and even depression. Allow your feeling to flow outward, don’t judge them or condemn them. I think we have all gone through that we want to move quickly from what we feel is a negative emotion as fast as we can. But, Thing is when our hearts are sad we can’t just jump to joy, and then we get frustrated that we can’t so feel even worse. Taking time to feel sad then time to feel angry, discouraged, overwhelmed and then frustrated releases all the emotions that are associated with each other. In time you will feel the release as you work it and you will begin to feel hopeful. Somedays it comes quickly and other times not. Just keep on cancelling out the negative with the power of the positive!!
There are two primary choices in life; to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them. I discovered I always have choices and sometimes it’s only a choice of attitude.Whatever you choose, you might as well enjoy it. It is your choice. If you are satisfied with your job and you do not want to supplement or replace your income do not complain. You made that choice. You chose not to take “action” toward changing your life. Nothing will change unles YOU change.“Some people choose to live by complaining. Other people choose to live.”
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Challenge procrastination with decisive action. Remember that it’s not necessary to have all the evidence before you commit yourself. Sometimes it takes a leap of faith.
Respect yourself and other will respect you ~ Confucius
Respect starts with respect for self. A person who respects themselves is confident and has a positive attitude. When you feel good about yourself, it will in turn affect the way you treat other people. The above statement of Confucius means that when we learn to respect ourselves truly we will not do anything that shall embarrass and put us to shame. This ensures us that we will do good to ourselves and to others. We have to carry ourselves with respect so that others will respect us. Speaking of respect, it is simply about valuing or loving ourselves of who really we are. And having respect means, we treat ourselves, others, and even our environment with kindness and consideration. This means, we take good care of ourselves, and being aware of how our actions affect others. If we do not respect ourselves and others, no one will respect us. If we do not treat others like what we want to be treated, they will not treat us well. When we refuse to let others disrespect us that is a positive proof that we respect ourselves. We are only treated how we allow others to treat us.
It is very important for us to have self-respect, because the feeling of being respected is so great. And in order for us to develop and build self-respect, we have to evaluate, analyze and reflect upon these some of the important questions; do I respect my values?, my opinions?, my self-care?, my actions?, my intentions?, or my motivations?. These are some of the questions that we have to think of.
Maintaining a desirable vibration will consistently create desirable experiences. An inconsistent vibration will create inconsistent results. This information is very important and very valuable, because it can help you obtain more attractive results when applying the law of attraction to your life.
If you were to only think about what you want a few times each day as if it is in your current reality, you would only be feeling the feelings of living your dreams for a small portion of each day and due to the law of attraction, you would only attract a few experiences that match the vibration you have maintained for short periods of time.
In order to truly generate the type of results most people would like to generate when utilizing the law of attraction, you must focus on what you want for the majority of each day. As a result of this focus, you will feel as if you already have what you want for the majority of each day and thus attract experiences of having what you want for the majority of each day. It is also important that you avoid activities that make you feel differently than the way you want to feel, the way you would feel if your dreams were a reality for you right now. If you are used to watching TV or listening to others talk about their problems, but these experiences do not make you feel the way you want to feel, then you need to find a way to replace these experiences with experiences that are a better match to what you want.
Its your life, Make it a PRIORITY!!
Why have we allowed this to happen? How have we gotten sucked into the vortex of living a false life — a life that we never defined for ourselves?
It takes courage to say, “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore!”
It takes courage to say, “This is my life, and I’m making the rules here.”
It takes courage to say, “I don’t give a damn what ‘they’ are doing or saying or admonishing or threatening.”
I just don’t give a damn about political correctness. Human decency, basic manners, and my personal values serve as my guide not some bound up ideas about avoiding offense at the cost of common sense and reality. Sometimes we must have the courage, the guts, sometimes even the anger, to not care about the possible consequences so that we have the freedom to live life on our own terms.
But there is a catch. It is not about not giving a damn, it is knowing when we should and should not. This is one of the keys to living, the ability to discern what we should and should not do and when.
Hence, I don’t really try to live up to the expectations of others because I have to take responsibility for and define my own life. But where possible, I still listen to what they have to say in case I might have missed some crucial insights about a situation. It is good to listen to advice and suggestions, but at the end of the day, we must always form our own conclusions and not blindly follow others.
What’s your philosophy?
