What you resist not only persists, but will grow in size. ~ Carl Jung
How is your life going? Things flowing for you? Or, do you have something going on that is draining your energy and causing you to feel not so well?
Life happens! You are human. People and events are often not in your control. You have what you feel are good days and then some that are not so good. You do the best you can but you may not like what is happening.
Have you found that the more you resist or deny what is going on, the worse it seems to get? Many of you have heard the saying “What you resist, persists!” The more you fight or struggle with something, the more it seems to show up in your life and cause you distress. This stress can cause symptoms in your physical, mental and emotional bodies.
You have the power to transform all of this. You are just one thought away from changing the feelings of helplessness and hopelessness you may be experiencing. Yes, just one thought could change everything for you! Let’s look at an example.
Where you work, the schedule has been cut back and overtime has been eliminated. You were counting on working overtime to have extra money to repair your car that is not running. When you find out that overtime has been eliminated, you get upset. You blame the company for not having a working, dependable car because they cut back on overtime. You get mad and angry with the company or your boss because you will not be able to earn extra money.
The more you complain, blame and get angry about your situation, you are resisting what is. What if you took a different approach? Instead you could say “I need money to repair my car.” Period. That’s it.
It is what it is . . . accept that. Stop allowing it to paralyze you. If you don’t, it will be difficult for you to do anything about it. You will struggle to find a way out of what is going on if you continue to resist it. Accept it. Release it and then move forward.
Once you let go of all those negative feelings about what is happening “to you”, you open the door for more positive solutions to come to you. By accepting what is, you are freeing yourself up to find a solution. Now you are one thought away from changing your situation.
It is common to blame someone or something for what is happening in your life. When you can understand that it is your thoughts that are at the root of what you perceive to be happening to you, then you are able to change everything in your life! Your thoughts are making you feel the way you do
. . . not anyone or anything else.
When you experience something, you have a thought about it. Can you find something, anything about what is happening and think a positive thought about it? Rather than think negative, think positive about what is happening. Not always easy but watch how your life seems to flow more when you focus on the positive.
For one week, or even just one day, do your best to find the good in everything that is happening in your life. Regardless of how devastating something may seem to you, find some good in it. I have found when I focused on even the smallest positive thought about what I was experiencing, it helped me get through some of the toughest times in my life.
Your life is full of experiences and people that may cause you to have negative thoughts and feelings. You can start today to change your mindset, your life, to one that is more positive and uplifting. When you do, watch how you feel better and your life flows with more opportunities.
You have the power within you to form positive thoughts and change your life. You can do this! Believe in yourself!
