Well, it's Wednesday and you know what that means? It's time for some warm fuzzies. I'm going to start by sharing something that Elemental Essence Essential Oils posted on their wall. The post is about a pastor's advice on improving your positive thinking.
"His advice was to add "and I like it like that" to the end of each or your thoughts. I got the most amazing AHA moment out it. I've also been practicing it and it's amazing what you realize you DON'T like that you are constantly putting out there. Try it out!"
I agree! Let's try it out together. Let's say you wake up and think to yourself, "I'm so tired." Adding 'and I like it like that' will immediately shift that thought. You can now wake-up, raise your hands in the air and declare, "I AM filled with energy and enthusiastic about life." Put on a cheery song like 'Living in the Moment' by Jason Mraz.
I sound like a broken record, because I keep repeating this quote that I heard from Panache Desai:
"Stop speaking limitations into existence."
It just rings so true though. I've really been reminding myself of this lately. I've been at a military school in Arkansas. It's training for a job I've never done before. It's easy to get caught up in the material and confusion or the girl next to me that keeps saying she's going to fail the test and how she doesn't know what she's going to do because she's a single mom. NO! I AM going to pass and I'm going to help others pass! I refuse to speak limitations into existence. I slip up sometimes, but the more you practice, the easier it is to catch yourself and shift that thought.
I'll leave you with this little ditty that KC Miller, founder of the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts posted (make sure to read the caption below the photo):
"Step up! Once you realize a wall is really just a big step, every wall becomes one step closer to what you want. Are you willing to learn to LOVE climbing?"
Are you willing to LOVE climbing and acknowledge that each wall is one beautiful step closer to your destination?
Hope you're feeling all warm and fuzzy now! Keep smiling!
