I create my own life.”

Change

Any change, even a change for the better,

is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.

Arnold Bennett

Change, my life right now is in a constant state of change.  And yes, Mr. Bennett is right.  It is accompanied by many drawbacks and discomforts.

I’ve always been resistant to change on the inside, while on the outside displaying (or trying to display) the strong, adventurous, scared of nothing persona.  And when I did change something in my life, it was selected carefully and only one thing at a time was changed.

So what got into me?  I have totally turned my world upside down.  I’ve dumped out everything and replaced it with new and alien things.  I’m lost, alone, uncomfortable and confused.

I hate mania……..I hate the pain of change.

Guard your thoughts

“Be vigilant;  guard your mind against negative thoughts.”

By :  Buddha

“If you think something, you give it life.”  You know it’s true.   Letting a thought ramble through your mind, dwelling on something that has happened, and/or writing or speaking something will bring the emotions and energy of that thought come to life.  It will overshadow your day.  It will guide your decisions and refocus your energies.

I struggle with this daily.  If I did not consciencely put an effort forward every morning to think of something positive, my days would be spent drowning in negative thoughts, pity and frustration.  I would find it difficult to smile, to enjoy any aspect of my life.  Depression would be a daily partner.

So every morning I start the day with a inspirational or motivational though and share that thought through out the day.  I sing a fun song in the car on the way to work.  I find something that day to look at and really smile or giggle about.  It’s a job;  it’s a routine; it’s necessary.

I’ve been writing this blog for a while now.   Please let me know what you think.  Having a difficult time finding a reason to continue.

Positive Thinking

depending on the talent that rubs against it.
