Nature Has a Way of Soothing My Soul

Nature has a way of soothing my soul. When I feel chaos inside my mind, I simply escape into the trees and lose myself in the sky.

Today’s Positive Note

Be content in your state of mind, even if it feels uncomfortable. There are simply some things that can not be changed over night. Therefore, it is best to roll with the emotions and feelings, whatever they may be. Nothing that was ever worth it came easy.

Keep your focus on your goals. Aim for success. Don’t give up.

You know that things always get better, so don’t get down about whatever it is you are going through right this moment.

Life can be gold, sometimes you have to “dig” for it though.

 

Right Here, Right Now

It is way too easy to get caught up into thinking about the past, or worried about what is going to happen tomorrow.

Start by embracing every moment all the time.

Note what it is you are doing, thinking, and feeling as often as you can.

When you acknowledge what you are doing, it gives it deeper meaning and greater purpose.

By being aware of your thoughts, you can have a better understanding of them.

By realizing how you feel it teaches you how to deal with your emotions and allows you to figure out why you feel a certain way.

You have to keep your mindset right here, right now as much as you possibly can.

 

Control Your Day

I strongly believe when you wake up, you determine what kind of day you are going to have based on your mindset and attitude. Not every morning is going to work in your favor. Sometimes, we may lose sleep or wake up in a bad mood. I think that it is very important to tell yourself as soon as you open your eyes, that the day is going to go positive and that you are going to have a good day. This can take some getting used to, but I can assure you it is well worth you time to get yourself in positive mood and mindset. It’s quite amazing what the mind is capable of, simply convincing yourself that you are feeling good and that things will continue to go well for the rest of the day can legitimately be a successful way for you to start changing your life.

Take responsibility for your mood, feelings and what you are thinking at all times, because everything is tied together. The sooner you realize that, your mind, body and spirit are all connected and that what you think as a direct affect on how your physical life is going to play out, you will start to understand exactly how to manipulate your thoughts.

Ultimately, we do not know if the day will go as planned, but we can put ourselves in the right mindset to take charge of the day. There’s a quote somewhere that goes something like this, “You may not be able to change what happens, but you can change your attitude.” I have been working towards becoming a more, positive person and let me tell you, this step is absolutely necessary. If you fail to take action as soon as you wake up, you may subconsciously be in a negative mindset or be less motivated to actually have a good day.

Old habits die hard, but today is a new day in which lays a new beginning for you to take advantage of. Control your day from the very start and watch your life transform! That’s my little piece of advice this morning. Let’s all have a wonderful day, filled with positive vibes and a healthy attitude!

Blogging Stresses

I have realized that being able to stay content is one of my main weaknesses. My mind has been filled with all these wonderful ideas for my blog and how I want to build on this positivity idea.

For example, I am trying to make this website better, but I am missing the fact that I don’t have the knowledge for it. Earlier, I tried to download wordpress 4.4 on my computer. Needless, to say that went down the drain when I was presented with tons of information that was foreign to me. I keep telling myself, just believe you can make this happen and it will.

That is  a true statement, but I have to understand that I am not in a position to go forward with this website and blog anymore than I have. This week alone, I have started a facebook account, an instagram account, and bought the domain name. Also, published many more blogs and beat my daily Stat records. I should be proud that I have come this far and give myself a break.

I get so consumed in an idea sometimes  and try to jump ahead of myself. After spending another night, trying to download software and use codes that I had no knowledge of, I realized something. I’m not ready for that step. It is going to take my years upon years to make this happen.

I have to slow down and remember why I’m doing this. It’s not for the traffic, or to make money. It’s to help myself understand what it is I am going through. Of course, I have a passion to help others that’s why I have chosen to make this blog public.

Something I am going to work on this week is being more content with what I have going on in my life. Focus on the projects I have already started and make some time not to worry about anything. Set some time aside to “burn” and enjoy without questioning whether I should be wrapped up in a book or writing a blog post.

Not to mention, I went through some difficult times with my ex boyfriend the other night and I haven’t given myself a chance to fully get over it all, because I’ve been so focused on this blog.

Basically, to sum this up I have to find a healthy balance in my life and quit looking too far ahead.

It’s great to have goals, but it’s important to slow down, in order to take in everything that is happening in your life.

Instant Inspiration

Sometimes, it is easier for me to give advice, then take it. It comes natural to give others advice, but not listen to my own words. During these times, people like myself may need to be reminded of our inspiration. Being positive doesn’t mean you remain positive all the time. Everyone falls down into the darkness sometimes. It is up to each and every one of us to pick each other up by exposing us to the light again.

Recognizing Patterns

I don’t know about you guys, but I make a mental note about every experience I have with every person I spend time with. I think it is a very smart and wise decision to observe those who you allow to be apart of your life. You have to take in everything about them, from how they talk to what kind of hobbies they have. You must ask them questions about their life and actually get to know who they are. Also, you must ask yourself how do you feel around this person? What kind of activities do you practice when you are spending time together? How is the relationship between the two of you? Do you two get along? Have things in common? Do they make you happy? Upset?

Ultimately, you have to ask yourself if the person are you spending time with is having a positive or negative affect on you. You owe it to yourself to maintain a mental journal of all of the relationships you have with others. You have to be aware of them, because sometimes it is not easy to spot someone who may be bringing you down. On the other hand, you may not realize how much someone means to you, until you really think about why you continue to allow them in your life.

As an individual, it is your responsibility to make judgments and observations about the people you meet, who you call your friends, and even those who are apart of your family. Once you start mentally noting how they affect you and what kind of person they are, you can determine whether or not you want to be involved with them. There are some people who may be draining your energy or bringing bad vibes into your life and you may be too distracted by your expectations and thoughts of them that you fail to realize how they truly are.

It is easy to create an illusion in your mind due to the thoughts you are thinking. You need to give yourself time to judge someone, because you want to give them a fair shot, but you also don’t want to drag out the amount of time you spend with them. Most of the time, we are oblivious to how people really are because we have created this mental image of how we want them to be, and/or how we want the relationship to go. For example, this could be with a friend. You may think the friendship is strong and worth keeping, but if they aren’t investing as much time and energy as you are, then you should focus your energy and time elsewhere.

Remember to always recognize the patterns with those you are in contact with. If negative things happen too often when you are involved with them, then you have to decide what is best for you. If things are going great, you may be worrying too much about the bad, so you should take time to let those concerns go. Take a step back and analyze the relationships in your life, figure out who is worth your time, and swift your energy into all relationships that are going to benefit you. This can be a devastating process. More than likely, you are going to have to minimize your friends, cut people out of your life, and start building relationships with people who you previously didn’t think you should. No matter how tough this is, or how many people you lose; you have to understand this cleanup is required.

Start recognizing patterns and watch positive ones come into play!
