The storms, the shootings, the doom and gloom headlines we are pounded with daily. Our phone goes off every time something tragic happens or the never ending political drama. We are the only country that focuses on the negative. Other countries have a 50/50 ratio, some have 70/30 on the negative news. What a great idea it would be to turn on the TV to know your cup would be filled up and not depleted.
I'm not asking for us not be aware or un-educated. I am just asking what more could we do in this world if we reacted with positive action? No matter what your belief is, we are here for the better of each other. We are here to love. We are here to have a life with abundance. We are here to have Joy.
When did your dreams get out of your reach? What doubt did you hear, read or was told? When life gets hard... and at times it does, we have to push through to see and feel how strong we are.
I have this dream and it changes at times, but I am on a ride. Most times on these rides I am with my mother or father. This holds a special place for me as I lost my father when I was 20 and I lost my mother three years ago. On this ride, one thing is very clear, I am determined to get someplace and I quickly seek the obstacles and how I can get over them. I wake up with a racing heartbeat and I can see... where I am going is one hell of a fun ride!
Life is not a complete picture. We only see the spot we are currently in, and we can look back at the good times and the bad.... but it's this very moment we have control. We can't change the past. We can't control the future. We can control our thoughts this very minute that can decide where our future takes us.
Your mind is like a garden. Negative thoughts become weeds and if those weeds are not pulled, they take over the garden. How do I know this? Because I have let the weeds take over my mind. I let doubt and fear come into my life and like weights to my ankles slowing me down.
Women in their 40's struggle with self-worth. Have you ever been told a lie? Being told something you know is not true? A lost relationship, a job or career. We drink too much, play the 'why me' game. We let the weeds in!
You are not the job you lost or the career that made you take a different turn. You are not that failed relationship. You are the dream you have in your heart. Like a mirror to see what is right in front of you. Your dream is your reality. It's what you are here to do. It won't come easy...but it will come if you apply the action needed.
How comfortable are you at seeing doubt against abundance? What do you prefer? The action is your solution. Find a way around the obstacles. Stephen Hawkins found a way around a disease that was to take his life within 2 years of being diagnosed. For 54 years he found a way to beat the obstacles of death and a life in depression. He had a passion, a purpose and will apply ACTION. He pulled the weeds in his mind. Hell, if he can SO CAN YOU! It's called the principle of favorability. Because there is a force that wants you to realize your Personal Legend.
I keep BLOGGING and writing because I know where you are. I know you can be more and do more. I believe in you! You have a Glimmer of Possibility in you!
Pull the weeds! Be the BOSS of your thoughts! Be who you were made to BE!
