If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
~ Dr. Wayne Dyer
It has been a long time since I visited with all of you. How is it possible that it has been almost a year since I wrote my last blog? Time seemed to be speeded up with the world spinning in so much chaos. I am sure that each one of you reading this has had your life impacted in many ways in the past year.
It’s easy to get caught up in the chaos and drama if you aren’t careful. Hard not to! Jobs changing, weather conditions out of control, relationships ending, people passing, and the daily way of life forever changing. We are all affected.
This past year I had to continually find a balance between working, “doing” and taking care of me. I love what I do and with many people asking for help, some days I didn’t quite find that balance. I realized I had to prioritize my life and make me my #1 priority. Something I asked clients to consider, so I had to do what was best for me also. I shifted things on my “to do” list and thus the hiatus from writing.
I have taken time for self-love and self-care during these past months. I have come to a sense of peace as events unfold in my life. I am now in a place of harmony with the different aspects of my life. It feels good to be writing again! Everything may not always be in balance in our life but we can find a way to harmonize them.
It’s all about your perspective. Dr. Wayne Dyer said, “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” I have found this to be true. I can find good in some of the most horrific things that have happened to me. Really! I mean that sincerely!
How are you looking at things in your life? Are you seeing the glass as half full or half empty? Can you change your perspective? Are you a “half full” kind of person who looks for the positive no matter what is happening?
We all do it. Something challenging happens in our life and we get caught up in thinking negatively about it. Then we have negative things to say about what happened. Then we believe the negative thoughts and words. Soon this negativity bleeds over into other areas of our life if we are not careful to stop ourselves.
We are all aware of the negative or “bad” things that happen every day. We are constantly reminded through all forms of media. What if for every “not so wonderful” thing you hear or read about, you look for five wonderful and beautiful things that are happening?
You create more of what you focus on. Want more negativity in your life? Focus on all the negativity that is going on around you and out in the world. Want to be more positive and live life experiencing more good, then look for kindness, love, compassion, patience, generosity, happiness, joy and thoughtfulness every where you go.
You can change your perspective as simply as taking a deep breath and choosing to look at what is happening in front of you in a completely different way. Can you be open to other possibilities for what you are experiencing? Let go of past conditioning and beliefs and open yourself to the world that is full of many perspectives, options, and possibilities.
Are you ready to be open to other ways of being? Commit to looking at everything in your life through a new set of eyes. What can you change or what can you let go of?
Being willing to change your perspective, gives you permission to see differently. Perhaps something wonderful has been right there in plain view every day but your current perspective has caused you not to see it. Changing your point of view even a little bit could make a major difference in your life.
Happy New Year . . . Happy New You!
