I must begin by deciding it will be a good day, before it is. I think we have much more control over our days than we realize we do. A decision early in the morning to have a good day, sets the tone. Do I want to bless my day? or curse it?
I could get up in the morning and focus on the pain in my shoulders, or I can get them moving and be thankful I can. Gratitude is the beginning of a great day, a great life. Thank You Lord for all You've done for me.
It is early and I'm up and I can see, I can feel, I can move, I have a great job, I have a great family, I have my health, I have a beautiful place to live, I have good friends, I have a good attitude, I have a relationship with Jesus, I have everything a woman could want, need or dream of.
Why is it, we as humans focus so much on the negative? I've heard so many theories from evolution and the need to survive to the Velcro theory, negative sticks. All of them excuses I think. The truth is, what we focus on is our reality.
Perception is reality, awareness, sense, recognition of ones surroundings. "If I change the way I look at things, the things I look at change." Wayne Dyer. . .truth. Yesterday I was feeling down, today I am deciding to feel differently.
I am taking the time this morning to count my blessings and realizing as I put one down, there is still another to count. Endless blessings, so what do I have to be down about? Nothing really.
Realizing I don't have to follow my feelings. It is up to me to change them. Changing my feelings is as easy as taking the time to question them. Fantasizing the freedom to win over my feelings, changing them if I wish.
