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.
when you live your life positively; you look for the positive in ALL of life
the good in people (you know it’s there)
the positive outcome in a bad situation or event
the lesson that you are learning
the experience that you are gaining
you blind yourself to the negative that you DO need to see, to open to awareness and take action on.
you view the bad and negative as a challenge, as a period of growth – which is good – if that growth is in alignment with who you are.
even when you like change and are welcome to change, if you are only looking for the positive; you do not readily see the right and positive choices, the right and positive path to the changes that need to be made.
you start traveling, or drifting, off course through the wrong choices and changes down the wrong path, giving and pouring your positive energies into these changes.
then slowly, or suddenly, realizing that you are not following the path meant for you, you are not doing what makes you happy. you are not doing what’s most important to you.
are you blinding yourself to negative that would be an awareness to you for a different change?
are you blinding yourself with a false positive and not living your truth?
