when your thoughts are negative – feeling the lack of what you want, wandering aimlessly about things that are not true and will not happen, angry or overwhelmed – what do you do to stop your thoughts?

do you think about what you do want?

do you think about what you can be grateful for in the now moment?

do you journal, go for a walk, meditate?

do you say out loud “stop!” to interrupt the thought and pick a new one?

when you realize that your thoughts are negative, choose one of the above to stop those thoughts and focus on something positive.

what will you practice this week?

how often do i find my thoughts focused on the lack, what’s missing, what i don’t have, the lack of what i want.

if i’m focusing on the lack, i’m not putting my time and attention, my focus, on what’s important to me. what i want.

it’s only important because i make it so. and so i need to keep doing my best to keep my focus and attention and what i want, what’s most important to me.

if i allow my thoughts to stay focused on the lack when i become aware that my thoughts wandered off to thinking about the lack. then aren’t i choosing to make that important?

that’s not what i want. i don’t want the lack.

i want what i want, and i’m going to have it. i want to be who i want to be. i want to do what i want to do. i want to experience what i want to experience.

it’s important to me, and so i’m going to make it so.

what’s important to you? are you focused on what you want? who you want to be. what you want to do. what you want to experience.

what’s important to you? if it’s important to you, then make it so.

choose what’s important to you, and when your mind wanders to lack, choose what you want again. choose what’s important to you again, choose what you want again, choose again, and again, and again…

live your truth!

who am i?

are you connected to who you are? who you want to be?

do you have or know what your internal compass is? what are your values and what’s most important to you? your values and what’s most important to you guide you.

what is your purpose and passion for living your life? your purpose is for you and you alone, to share only as you may wish.

what do you want to do?

what experiences do you want to have? why do you want to have those experiences?

is that what you are living? is that what you are choosing?

live your truth!

life is easy

life is easy.

life is easy? can it be? life is filled with challenges and obstacles. life is filled with wants, and more wants. i’m sure that you can give me a list of wants that you have right now, and you can tell me how they all seem to be just out of your grasp.

wants out of your grasp create feelings of overwhelm as you think about the lack of what you want, giving you stress, anxiety and fear.

how much do you truly want this want? how often do you think of this want? are your thoughts positive or negative? yes, there is a difference in wants. you have positive feeling wants and you have negative feeling wants.

a negative feeling want, can be a positive feeling want. if you are thinking about the want and feeling the lack of it, it is a negative feeling want, you are doing more to push the want away than to bring it closer to you.

when you are feeling negatively towards your wants you see all the challenges and obstacles. you see these as blocks and allow them to slow you down or to stop you in the pursuit of your want.

a positive feeling want is a want that you think about with positive desire, feeling happy and grateful that you choose to create the want in your life. feeling connected, high energy, enthusiasm and excitement for how you will feel when you have this want.

when you are connected to your wants positively, life is easy. when you are thinking positively about your wants you open yourself to opportunities to create what you want. energy is flowing to you and through you. you are inspired to take action.

i imagine that you can look back at the wants that you have had in your life and tell me about some that were negative feeling and took a long time to get the want. i also imagine that you can tell me about positive feeling wants you now enjoy that came to you easily.

what do you want now? is it a negative feeling want or a positive feeling want?

choose to think positively about what you want. connect to how you will feel living with this want and let the positive feelings give you energy, enthusiasm and excitement to create what you want.

tell me how life is easy for a positive feeling want in your life.

live your truth!

you can have everything that you want, you are the creator of your life experience.

Imagination and Gratitude

Do you know that you can choose to be grateful? Gratitude is an attitude, and we choose our attitude. We choose how we are going to respond to any situation. We choose how we are going to respond in each moment that we live and experience.

If you don’t like what is happening, or you don’t like how you are feeling, you can choose to feel positive feelings, you can choose to feel gratitude.

Gratitude has made a big difference in my life. It is gratitude that has tipped my life from feeling negative throughout the day to feeling positive throughout the day. Choosing to be grateful from the small to the big has changed me and transformed me. As I chose to be grateful and focused on the positive, I attracted and created more and more positive in my life.

I had moments in my life that I was feeling so low, so lost, so alone and I knew that I had to start focusing on positive. It is with gratitude that I was able to switch my focus to positive thoughts. I would open my journal and begin to write, “I am so happy and grateful for …” and I would begin to list what I was happy and grateful for. Some days this was not easy to do, I didn’t feel happiness for anything but my kids. And that is where I would start. “I am so happy and grateful for my kids, the sunshine, blue skies, coffee, sitting in the sun, green grass, kids playing outside, my deck” and slowly it would expand. “my job, being able to work from home, having a home, having a car, my family, my Grandpa, going to my Grandpa’s lake home, time spent with my family, traditions.” And slowly it would expand more into some of my wants and goals, and now all the way to my dreams and desires. “my business, reading, learning, a retreat center, writing a book, living in my dream home on the lake, traveling the world, being surrounded by nature.” Journaling in this way turned my negativity into positivity, and being able to focus on positive dreams and desires has made all the difference in my life.

I began to believe and trust more and more of the dreams and desires that I wrote about. I began growing and expanding, first in feeling good and positive more and more. Then expanding, like the ripples in the water, into all areas of my life and my being who I wanted to be, doing what I wanted to do and experiencing what I wanted to experience.

As I was grateful for what I wanted, I used my imagination. Imagination activated my power. The power we all have within ourselves to create the life that we want to live. Napoleon Hill wrote, “… imagination is the most marvelous, miraculous, inconceivably powerful force the world has ever known.”

With our imagination, we can build the picture of what we want. We can create the vision for the life that we want to live. With our imagination, we can clarify who we want to be, what we want to do and what we want to experience.

What are you grateful for? Are you imagining the life you want to live?

Live Your Truth!

let go control

I choose to live in present moment awareness and do what is most important. When I choose to live in present moment awareness and do what is most important it creates a serene day with a sense of urgency which is calm and collected, a focused way of living and experiencing the day.

When I am trying to control and do do do, that creates overwhelm.

I can’t control anything but my feelings and choices. I can be aware of what I am choosing and choose to feel positive.

Letting go control and doing my best, allowing the moment and trusting God, the Universe, is how I want to live. There is so much that I want to do and want to prioritize. I need to be aware that I am not super mom or super woman and I can’t do it all and have it all right now. (still, I really really want it – but I know that the growth and journey to achieving all that I want is so much more!)

So I choose to be and do what is most important in the now moment and living in present moment awareness. I choose to do my best at what is most important at the time. I choose to trust the Universe is creating all that I want.

I can let go and be patient. I can live in faith and trust.

I enjoy the journey in the preset moment.

What control can you let go? What is most important to you in your present moment awareness?

Live Your Truth!

grumbling or grateful

There is much I could worry, doubt, or be anxious about.

But…

I am so happy and grateful!

I am happy to be experiencing life! Living my truth!

Are you down? Are you judging yourself? I was. Then I realized that I can choose gratitude.

You can choose gratitude!

There are many things to be grateful for. Sometimes what we are grateful for seems small, but there are big things in your life to be grateful for too.

Sometimes experiences seem negative, but they are the beginning of something amazing and positive.

How often are those small things not the small things, but the things that matter most in our life?

What experiences have brought you joy, love, energy and enthusiasm?

What matters most in your life?

Live Your Truth!
