Awareness is the First Step

The first step in your practical journey to a happier life.

You wonder why it seems like everything that can go wrong does.  You say you knew it was too good to be true, or think you’ll never get ahead.  You wonder, why me?  Can you imagine living the rest of your life feeling this way?

Have you ever stopped and thought about what you think about?  How your thoughts sound?  How they make you feel?  It’s likely if you take the time to do so you’ll notice a trend of compulsive negativity. To create the life you actually do want you’ll have to change the quality of your thoughts.

Your thoughts are your reality.  It’s called manifesting.  And before you go running away thinking this is some hippie life, or I’ll have you meditating in a closet somewhere, I won’t. (I eat Oreos, and wear skinny jeans, and spend way too much time watching weeknight TV series’.) It’s just the Universe, what you send out will come back to you.  Simple as that.  What you keep thinking to yourself and what you speak about out loud become your realities.  If you continue with your negative thoughts and complaining to everyone you know, then negativity is what will keep coming into your life.  You’re literally asking it to.  But if you make the conscious choice to make the most of the best and the least of the worst, you will soon see progressive changes in your own life.

It’s likely if this is the first time you’ve heard of this it will make you angry or irritated and you won’t believe that it’s up to you.  I understand.  That’s how I felt.  But you’ve got to admit, if constant complaining and blaming everyone and everything for what’s happening in your life isn’t getting you what you want, then could it really hurt to try?  And this really works whether you believe it or not.  Damn.  What’s trending in your life now?  Anything you don’t want?  Your negative thoughts are creating undesirable results in your life.  Because the more you think about what you don’t want, the more you attract what you don’t want.

Being positive changes the way you see things, the way you talk, the way you feel and even your physical health too.  Unfortunately being positive doesn’t come naturally to most, and it’s not something that we’re surrounded by growing up now days either.  In fact, we’re so surrounded by negative media that it seems being negative is our world’s default today.  Do a few thumb scrolls down your news feed, what do you see?  I did a little trial of my own, and not even a few swipes down I was greeted with a post that said – If I had $1 for everything good that’s happened to me in the past six months I could buy a McChicken and a small fry.  And you just said – for real though – in your head.  Stop that.

Positivity isn’t something that’s often taught either.  It’s not a class in school or something parents have talks to their children about.  Growing up the adults in our lives are complaining around us like it’s their jobs, about maintenance bills, taxes, busy schedules, it’s cloudy out today, it’s cold, it’s hot, can you believe how inconvenienced they were by road work?  Day after day for about two decades this is what we hear, and we learn from osmosis mostly, then we’re thrown out into the world expected to not only deal with adulthood but to be happy and successful. But how, when we’re trained to look around and see everything that’s wrong, little that’s right.

While it seems like such a simple concept, being positive and applying it to all the aspects of our lives is extremely hard after years of thinking and speaking negatively.  Sometimes it will seem impossible.  But you can really only feel weak for so long.

Strong is what happens when you run out of weak.

So put your positive pants on, we’ve got work to do.  Instead of just going about your day without intent, become so aware of what you’re thinking.  Once you begin to pay attention to yourself, you can then begin to control your thoughts.  Think and speak intentionally.  Let go of negative thoughts.  Your awareness gives you the power.
