One of the hardest things to do in this life is to rewire your brain to think positively rather than look for the negative in things. It is, however, possible if train those positivity muscles. The easiest way I know how to do this is to start and end each day with a gratitude journal. This is how you do it: take out your journal (or think it - I always think it) right before you go to bed and "force" yourself to come up with 5 things you are grateful for. Write them down. "Today I am grateful for..." The first time you do this you may only come up with one or two things and it might feel awkward but keep trying!!! These can be the most mundane things like sunshine, hot coffee, a friend. When you get more advanced you might want to add really hard things like people with whom you have had major issues (even if it's really hard and you feel a bit inauthentic). Then do this again when you wake up in the morning. And then again and night and again in the morning. I think you get the idea?
When you do this for a while, you won't believe what happens - you actually develop a grateful way of being. You will see beauty and gratitude all around you! You won't believe how many things there are to be grateful for. Try it and let me know how it goes.
I have to go now and look at the gorgeous snow that fell last night 😉
The one constant in life is change. How we navigate that change is who we are. Creating sustainable change is a more deliberate action and gives us the life we want. This is what my practice and my life mission is all about. All of my life experiences, work history and spiritual journey have lead me to this path - to help others create transformation in their lives and live lives that they love.
