I had a conversation yesterday with a friend yesterday and we both seemed to have a case of the blues. Sometimes all it takes is a conversation with a friend to lift our spirits which we both felt happy after a few minutes. We both agree that it is so easy to look at the stuff in life that we haven’t accomplished or is making us unhappy. Why do we focus on those things rather than the good?
Many people talk about the law that attracts things to us. People have phrased it different ways but it all seems do be based on our ‘feelings.’ Like, ‘what we feel we will attract.’
Here’s an image I found that might make you feel HAPPY:
I’ve been doing an experiment for a few days and wondering how I can impact my feelings. If I always feel like I’m procrastinating and behind in my responsibilities, I will always be procrastinating and behind in my responsibilities.
So for a few days now I have had my ‘to do’ list in front of me. Next to it (and on the same sheet of paper) I have my ‘have done’ list. Even the little things like making my bed, doing the dishes make it on the ‘have done’ list. I’ve noticed that I get a WHOLE LOT of things done from my ‘to do’ list now and am actually feeling happy and have a huge sense of accomplishment. I feel lighter on my feet, more outgoing and am interested to see how this continues.
Lao Russell wrote a book called ‘God Will Work With You But Not For You‘ and I love that! It tells me that only when I take action that the Divine (God, the Universe, your Higher Power) will jump in and assist me. What a great concept! Two hands are always better than one and I’m certainly open for miracles.
Anyways, I am happy to report I’m getting a lot done and I’m feeling much better. Will be on the lookout for the miracles but truthfully believe they are coming! Do I always feel this motivated, energetic and inspiring? Hardly. 99.999% of my days I wake up as an afraid old grinch, angry that I cannot stay in bed. We all have to coax the little voice in our head to get a move on. Let’s believe that when we start pushing ourselves to work toward a goal, we have an invisible hand giving us assistance along the way.
