I am still going through my 30 day exercise and so far so good. I must admit I will probably have to stretch 30 days out to a minimum of 60 but the results will be worth it. The one thing that I am finding a constant is a “shift of mind.”
When I am thinking of others first my days and moments go much better. I have an exercise for you to try…the next time you are in a REALLY rotten mood I want you to think about who is at the center of your thought processes. I have a feeling you may be surprised. For me – the negative mood is radiating from a selfish streak where I seem consumed in a thought pattern solely focused on me. You know the ones….
oh I hate how this feels
I hate my hair today
I can’t believe they did that to me,
The list goes on and on…..these are by far the worst of times for many of us.
Try changing direction with your thoughts….what is there happening around you that is good? Isn’t it great to see another day. Are you glad to have hair albeit – wild? When someone strikes out at you, do you turn the other cheek and refuse to let the situation bring you down? In retrospect when someone approaches you negatively have you ever noticed it usually isn’t about you at all?
Back to my 30 days….let’s try a little retrospection – think of others and your surroundings…how would they appear if this were your final 30 days?
Here I come sunshine :)!
