I’m at a place in my life where peace and happiness are my biggest priorities. I am choosing to only deliberately give my attention and energy to the things that make me feel good.🙌🏻 . That seems easy enough but the contrast of life will put you in situations that test you. So how are you going to respond? Are you going to automatically react to the people, places and situations that normally cause negative emotions or anger? Or will you rise above, find the lesson and grow from it? . You see, life will continue putting situations in front of you until you learn from them. No matter how bad and how low you get, it is only an opportunity for growth. If you continue reacting to life the same way, day after day, month after month, year after year it’s safe to say most days, months and years will repeat the same lessons over and over until you learn from them. . The power we have as physical beings in this universe is that we have the ability to choose our own perspectives about things. We can choose to see the lesson or get mad about it and repeat it. Real change will ONLY come from within. . If you begin to stop yourself in the middle of a reaction, and place your focus on something more positive you are beginning to rewire your subconscious mind. If you can’t find a positive aspect about a situation, simply don’t invest a lot of your energy into it. I realize some people go through negative situations daily, but they do have a choice on how they react to it. If you allow that negative situation or person to consume you and you think about it all day then you already lost. . The best way to create change is to become aware of who you really are and how you react to life. Start noticing what emotions consume most of your day, and then realize what it is that is causing those emotions. From there if you change your perspective you can begin to find the silver lining in the dark cloud so that no matter how bad life may get, you will always have the opportunity to make a change day by day. Choose to only invest your focus and energy on the things that give you peace of mind and happiness!🙏🏻
