November 29th. Thanksgiving is over. Too much turkey, pumpkin pie and mashed potatoes still linger in the stomach and rapidly approaching the hips. Or, you may not celebrate our US holiday but are still thinking about what you should have done about this or what you shouldn't have done about that. Whether the pants are tight or the wallet is empty, we often don't like our life as it is. It is uncomfortable but a familiar place. We blame ourselves for what we have and we don't have. It sucks!
However, what we most often forget is that we can press the "start over" button at any time. We don't have to wait to January 1st to make a new resolution, we don't have to wait til tomorrow starts a new day. We can choose right now, in this moment, to declare our last game as over and our new one can begin.
So, wherever you are at, right in this very moment, think about just one thing you want. Forget the past and realize that you are in the most perfect moment of time. You are a powerful person and truly ANYTHING is possible in the future. Take a deep breath, grab a piece of paper or open a blank page on your computer. Give gratitude for whatever it is, right now, even though you don't have it yet in your life. BELIEVE THAT YOU DO and continue to write until you FEEL like you already have it, then feel that feeling as long as you can. Even if that means continuing to write about it.
Our minds won't want to play this game, by the way. It'll remind you that you aren't smart, this won't work, you're not good enough, etc. Let me ask you, if you have negative friends in your life, what do you normally do with them? You try not to spend much time with them, right? That voice in your head just put aside, it is not the voice of truth.
Your thoughts cause feelings and your feelings cause an invisible creation process to begin. Look at the things you have around you right now. Good or bad, is it possible that you stewed on certain thoughts and feelings long enough that you have these things in your life?
You have nothing to lose by trying this and all you have to gain is feeling good. Who wants to play with me now? Lets take 5 or 10 minutes and write. I'm going first!!
