So, I've been hearing so much lately about the power of positive thinking, the Universe, Higher Power, etc. and to be honest, I was saying a Big Phooey to all of it. Then, I began to notice that I wasn't as joyful as I once was. I didn't enjoy little things like the birds singing or when it was raining and the sun was shining all at once - by the way, I just LOVE when that happens. So, I started to look at my thoughts and actions. Man, did I have some stinkin' thinkin' going on.
Well, I started really thinking about all the hooplah about positivity and I realized that there may actually be something to it. After all, the bible tells me that I should dwell on whatever is good, pure, holy etc. so that I can be joyful.
Sooo....I started trying to practice affirmations. That was difficult for me, to say the least. Then, I heard about this neat APP called Think Up. I decided to give it a try and I love it! If you struggle with negativity, I hope you will consider it. You can thank me later!
Stress-filled days. We all have them. Sometimes we are lucky enough to have a heads-up that they are coming. Today is one of those days. Tight deadlines, too much work and not enough workers, pressure to give the best service possible. All that adds up to a giant pit of dread in my stomach. But, not today. I set my clock to get up a few minutes early. I applied Frankincense to the crown of my head and to my forehead. Gratitude went onto my outer ears. And last, but not least, a drop of Hope over my heart. Then, I began my prayer time. Not a long time, just 5 or 10 minutes spent giving thanks for my many blessings and asking for God's direction over my day. Guess what? The rock in my stomach is gone! Now, I can face my day with a clear mind and a song in my heart, knowing that no matter what comes today, God's already there!
Hope you have a wonderful day and that it is filled with many blessings!
