I wrote a post the other day about the flow of fate. About how when you make a decision about something then things start happening in your favor.
Well amazingly, that just continues to become more and more true for me lately.
I set some goals while I was at Camp Mighty a few weeks ago and strangely enough, opportunities have started coming my way in relation to those goals. It’s all very exciting stuff and it’s all happening quickly. My head is kind of spinning to be honest.
And even though these are all things that I am excited about and really, really want in my life… somehow there’s always that tiny bit of doubt that comes to visit me.
Do you have that nasty little voice in your head like I do? The one that is always there to remind you of the things that aren’t going right? The one that turns something exciting into something fearful? The one that tells you that you can’t possibly achieve what you want to achieve?
Self-speak is the worst saboteur there is. It is that tape that is on a constant loop in your brain and it is destructive.
When you become conscious of how you speak to yourself, you can begin to slowly change it. The words in your head create energy and if they are negative words, they create negative energy. When you become aware of them and you decide to consciously change how you think, you can transform your energy from within.
I have found that the easiest and best way to shift that energy is to think about what I’m grateful for. As soon as the negative thoughts crowd my head space, I immediately switch the channel to gratitude: my family, my health, my friends, my home, the health of my children…. poof… the energy has shifted. And I’m ready to accept the wonderful opportunities that are in my path.
With Thanksgiving upon us, it is a natural time to start thinking about what we are grateful for. But my hope is that we can remember to be grateful all year long. So this Thanksgiving I’m sending gratitude and positive energy your way. I’m thankful for all of you who have supported me along this journey. May your turkey be delicious and may your heart be full! Happy Thanksgiving!
