Optimism: a disposition or tendency to look on the more favorable side of events or conditions and to expect the most favorable outcome.
"The mind is everything. What you think you become." Buddha
I have found this to be true in my life. This past two years, I've been on a quest to change my mind. Change my thinking. Change everything in my life that is holding me back from being all I was created to be.
The first step was to dig up and release all my anger. There was a rage buried so deep in my soul I didn't have a clue the extent of it. I was blessed to have two months to focus on myself, with a lot of help getting at it all.
When that time was through, I knew I had to continue to grow. To discover my purpose for being on this earth, before that time was up. One thing I cannot do is waste another precious day of my life with anger, regret or any other negative thought.
As I have learned to turn my thinking around, it has become easier and easier. Of course, I'm human, I still have moments of anger, depression, doubt. The difference is, I can let it go quite easily these days.
One thing I cannot abide is laziness and the whole victim mentality. When I am exposed to someone with this bent, it is all I can do, not to shake them. Our lives are all in our hands. It's totally our responsibility to determine how our life turns out.
What we believe about ourselves is exactly what we will produce. Is there something you want to change? Change it. I'm not so naïve as to think it will be easy, or to imply that in any way. I AM saying it's possible and so worth the effort.
My philosophy is: time will pass regardless, if I'm stagnating or growing. Where do I want to be in a year from now? Who do I want to be? What do I have to do to make it happen? Then DO it. One step at a time, one day at a time your life can change. All you need is to believe it's possible.
