It’s amazing how after even years of healing and inner work, we can instantly be triggered to go spiraling down!
How do we get out of the negative mindset?
Celebrating Mother’s Day can either be a cheap commercial process or a deeply emotional family celebration! It’s our choice how we see it and how we celebrate it!
In my family we’ve done both. Now, we celebrate it as a way of honoring the people who have made sacrifices for their families.
Living mindfully isn’t enough if we aren’t also adding the secret element of joy, for that’s what brings us satisfaction!
I’ve written about following our joy in life, but purposefully choosing to do things which bring us joy really is the secret sauce to living a fulfilled life!
At the beginning of January this year Netflix started a brand new program called Tidying with Marie Kondo, which I was curious enough about to watch!
Wow! Marie has the whole concept of joy down to an art! Her area of expertise (tidying) has allowed her to observe that when people simplify their belongings and choose what brings them joy, then organize and display them, that the emotional benefits greatly impact their lives and their relationships by redefining what and how they choose to live!
Overcoming the Impossible!
What has your year been like? Are you preparing yourself to look at what resolutions you wish to put into place for the New Year?
What if I were to say that I don’t do resolutions anymore? Why not?
Well, by creating a list of resolutions we’re focusing our energies on what’s negative or not working in our lives. When those resolutions don’t pan out we then bathe ourselves in negative self-talk; do this year after year and our self-confidence slowly evaporates. I know that only too well. I kept putting myself through that process because I desperately wanted to heal, to grow, to change.
The toll it took on my self confidence became overwhelming, and rather than being able to move forward to where I wanted to be, I became stuck. So stuck that I felt I wouldn’t ever be able to move forward, because there was probably something so wrong with me that no matter how hard I tried, it would never happen.
So how is a person going to change, grow and move forward in life if this approach doesn’t work so well?
Well, a few years ago I heard of a brand new approach, which spoke to my yearning soul. This new way seemed focused on positivity, and echoed the new lessons in positivity I was learning from other sources.
What is that approach and how has it made a difference in my life?
