What is your attitude in this moment?

Are you positive? Are you negative?

Your attitude creates the energy that surrounds you. Your attitude determines how you experience your day. Your attitude determines how you react or respond to the moments of your day.

You can choose your attitude. What attitude do you want to choose? Positive and uplifting or negative and draining?

“Remember, the thoughts that you think and the statements you make regarding yourself determine your mental attitude. If you have a worthwhile objective, find the one reason why you can achieve it rather than hundreds of reasons why you can’t.” ~Napoleon Hill

By choosing your attitude, you choose how you will respond to the moments and experiences of your life. It is always in your control what attitude you want to have.

You may judge an experience or moment to be bad, but you can choose to respond in a way that you can feel positive about. And that one choice to choose positive can make the difference in a whole succession of moments. One choice can be the turning point in your life.

Gratitude – Why?

I’m in such a good mood and I’m so happy about it!

I didn’t wake up in a good mood. I woke up feeling down and I was judging myself. I was thinking about all the things that I failed to do, all the things that I wanted to do and wasn’t disciplined enough to do them. I was thinking about the things that I want, feeling them missing, feeling the lack of them in my life. I was judging what I should have or could have done differently to not have failed and had the outcome that I wanted.

I picked up my journal this morning and began writing about and thinking about what I want, and that turned my judging into gratitude. Thinking about what I want and why I wanted what I want changed my attitude for the day! A shift of focus from judging to gratitude. Now I feel focused and a sense of urgency to accomplish tasks instead of the stress and overwhelm that I was feeling earlier about all I need to and want to do.

What creates the gratitude feeling? Thinking about your wants; who you want to be, what you want to do, what you want to experience and WHY you want those things. Building the image of your dreams and desires, your goals and visions, getting the image clearer and clearer in your mind. Bringing the image of what you want into the present moment asking, what is most important now?

What do you want? Who do you want to be? What do you want to do? What do you want to experience? Why?

What’s most important to you NOW in this present moment?

Health and Wellbeing

I was overweight. Obese. I struggled to get rid of weight, and I struggled to maintain weight. I tried different diets, different foods, and different workouts. My weight went up and down for many years.

Then…

I changed my attitude. I started changing my thoughts to positive thinking about what I want. I started visualizing how I wanted to look and feel.

As my attitude changed to more and more positive, my environment did too. A more positive environment created a more positive attitude. A more positive attitude created a more positive environment. And so it grew and expanded in that circular way, in many areas of my life all at the same time!

My goal weight was one hundred fifty something pounds, one-five-any number.

I visualized. I visualized myself being fit and toned kayaking wearing a bikini. That was my image of the vision for my weight (and still is).

I released the weight and kept releasing. Surpassing my goal of one-five-any number.  Surpassing my goal of wearing the same size clothes as I did in high school. I look and feel better than I did. I am healthier and more fit than I was in high school. I am getting younger, not older.

Now I am curious and wonder what more can I do for my body? How much better can I feel than even this? What more can I do?

I enjoy eating a mostly paleo diet. I enjoy the foods I eat. I enjoy feeling good in my body. I enjoy high energy! The foods I eat taste amazing and satisfy my nutritional body needs and emotional food pleasures. I am fulfilling myself with the foods I eat.

I enjoy yoga, strength training and cardio workouts. I love being outside – kayaking, running, hiking and earthing. I enjoy free flowing movements, my body free of tension and stress. I am fulfilling myself by connecting to nature and myself with my activities.

I have found that the better I feel the more I want to eat the good foods for my body and be more active.

I have desires that have expanded and grown to how I want to look and feel and the strength that I want to have. I want to become a black belt in tae kwon do. I want to enjoy many high adventure activities.

My health and fitness is about physical wellbeing as well as mental wellbeing, emotional wellbeing and spiritual wellbeing.

My health and wellbeing are a priority for me. When I made my health and wellbeing a priority, making the healthy choices for food and being active became easy, fun and good feeling!

What do you want for your health and wellbeing?
