It’s Friday and I’m happy!!
Well, I typically am most days. You see awhile back I decided to let everything go; ideas, fears, limitations, relationships that weren’t healthy, and sabotaging or holding myself back (the last one was a big one for me), or dimming my light and the essence of who I am for others sake (top worst). Along with this transformation I decided to only surround myself with people who were on the same journey to strive for perfection *reaching their highest of abilities* emotionally, spiritually, mentally and physically. I changed my mind, I changed how I viewed society or the tools of the world. I decided…to change my mind-to develop a new mindset…which in fact, will change your world because it certainly did mine.
Has anyone ever considered what they’re complaining about? Have you looked around or listened to people to find that they too are complaining? And for what??? It’s always something….”my spouse, my kids, my job, my body, my clothes, my things….etc etc”. Why is there complaining? My theory; people listen to others and well since that’s your surrounding, you begin following suite. You begin complaining not only because everyone else is but because you’re actually happy but don’t want to make anyone else feel different. You complain because you’ve simply made it a habit!
My list can go on 5,000 different ways as to why we are so fortunate and if you’re not careful those very words you use to criticize and complain will simply take over your life and the essence of you. You will have everything unfulfilling you could possibly *not* have wanted, you will do unfulfilling things to complain about, and you will surround yourself with bitter/ungrateful people. Sounds great, right? …..Yeah, no thank you.
I’m not saying the thoughts don’t cross my mind or the words don’t come from my own mouth occasionally, especially since I tend to be hard on myself. When this happens, I hear what I’m saying, I correct myself and then I remind myself all the blessings that surround me and all that there is to be grateful for in this world. To think of other countries suffrage or the suffering in your own community should cause you to quickly stop the horrible habit.
It’s a beautiful day, my family is healthy, I’ve had a warm cup of coffee and water I can drink from the faucet…..life…is…good. And if you’re reading this I’m sure yours is too and if it’s not? Change the mindset and break the habits.
Yay for the weekend y’all! I’m going to enjoy and appreciate mine and I hope y’all do the same!!
