In these unprecedented times, we have to change our thinking, get creative and find new ways of doing things. Our old way of thinking and doing things, in most cases, won’t work.
Most of us are “staying at home” and we don’t know how long this will last. Depending on where you live, it may already have been two or three weeks long. This is a real adjustment from life as we knew it. Many are stressed over the whole situation; some are already going “stir-crazy” staying home. Others are fighting depression. But we have a choice. We CAN turn the entire situation around by changing our perception of what is happening.
Let’s look at the good that is coming out of this; families are spending more time with their children, people are getting creative, neighbors are helping neighbors, and good will is everywhere. In many ways, it appears that society is getting back to what is truly important in life; loving, sharing, helping, family and friends, and creating.
If you find yourself in a difficult place, have lost your job, are worried about money, etc., as difficult and dire as it may seem, you must look at the good that is happening if you want things to change. You must have gratitude for what you have, every little thing counts. Often the little things become big things when you get into gratitude. Nothing is too insignificant to express gratitude for. When you get into the “feeling” of gratitude, you then can move the joy.
Let go of the thoughts that keep you down. Lift thought with gratitude and joy. It really is OK to be happy, laugh and enjoy life, even when times are hard. It will lift the cloud and let the light in again. There you can find relief.
When you are in gratitude, you are focused on what’s good in life, you notice the abundance and you’re not focused on the lack or what is missing. That’s when the shift happens. The more you practice gratitude, the more you notice the abundance and good in your life. I find myself looking for more things to be grateful for. It’s fun, make a game out of it.
This may sound trivial, but it really works. It’s by law. What you focus on is what you attract into your life. When you are thinking about not having enough, how to pay the bills, how am I going to… then you just get more of the same. When your thought is dwelling on what’s good, when you are FEELING gratitude and noticing the abundance and good surrounding you, you will attract more abundance. Ideas, resources, things you hadn’t thought of, will come to you, will come to your mind, and life will open up in ways you hadn’t imagined. Good brings with it more good.
Stay away from the television news casts that predict more hard times, more sickness, more lack. Don’t let yourself get sucked into their story. Create the story you want to live. Your thinking really can get you the results you want. Don’t live based on what the outside world is saying. Use your thinking mind, reject thoughts you don’t want manifested in your life, decide what you do want, fall in love with the idea, take action and create it. Even if you don’t know how, take action to move toward what you want. The way will open up. Action is an important step. In essence, think it…feel it…act on it…and you must get the results you desire.
Brainstorming is a great way to get creative and find new ideas. Find a partner that you can brainstorm with. The saying, “Two minds are better than one” will really work. Or get a group of people with similar desires and create. When a negative thought is brought to the table, say “next” and move on. Don’t give it any consideration. Only look at possibilities. The answer to any problem is already there. We just have to get on the same vibration with it to see the answer. Keep an open mind. Don’t let any limiting beliefs or thoughts stop you from moving forward. Anything really is possible.
Each person holds the key to any problem. It is all in our thinking, our perception and what we believe is possible. Quiet the chatter of limiting thinking, get into gratitude, find the joy and create the results you want. YOU have the thinking power to do it! Now go create it!
