Did you choose how to greet the day today?
Our experience moment to moment, day to day can appear to be one of only two things: living or life happening to you.
If you are currently in a state of disempowerment then the chances are that life is happening to you and fooling yourself into believing that you have no say in the matter will only magnify the feeling. Whilst it is true to say that there are a multitude of events and circumstances that are happening around us without our apparent input such as the sun came up this morning, your outlook at that miraculous occurrence will be the judge of your experience…
Did you greet the sun upon waking with a groan that indeed you were being forced to participate in another round of “a day in the life of…” or did you decide that with that sunrise came an opportunity to make a real difference in your life, in the lives of others?
You may think that making a shift between these two states is the equivalent of personality surgery or that something would need to drastically change in order for you to feel positive about a Monday morning and you would be right, something would need to change: You! You would need to be that change, make that change and recognise that waiting for life to change around you is as disempowering as it gets. If you are waiting for the universe to serve you a miracle then you need to know that the universe is encouraging you to become the miracle.
Start by one small internal shift, just one: instead of yearning for all the things you don’t have, feeling disappointed, celebrate all the things that you do have by showing them some genuine love.
Everything that exists in your life right now is your creation, whether you actively participated in its creation or sat back and complained without intervention… it’s all yours so start loving it… and watch how much life starts to love you back.
Gratitude is the key to a beautiful life.
