This week is all about noticing and focusing on what’s going right in your life and taking time to really be grateful for what you have.
So often, we fixate on what’s going wrong, or not right, and worry about what we can do to change that or fix it… which reminds me of one of my favorite statements: What you focus on grows and what you resist, persists!
So, what are you focusing on? There’s always something that floats around the mind which can bring us worry and anxiety, but when you look at those thoughts, can you see that they have shown up hundreds, if not thousands, of times before and life has continued to go on?
It’s true… those pesky, worry-inducing and anxiety-producing thoughts get a lot bigger when we focus on them, so the next time that old, familiar (and scary) thought shows up try saying this (or something like it) to it:
“Hey, thanks for mentioning that! I’m very aware of what’s going on and you don’t have to bring it up again.” Hopefully the part of your mind that keeps coming up with the scary stuff will relax and take a break. You can use this statement over and over again.
Another thing you can do this week, is to literally list what you’re grateful for at the end of the every day and also what you have accomplished. Be kind and celebrate yourself! (Up your gratitude and accomplishment game by joining and participating in my new Facebook Group called, “What’s Going Right Today!”)
If you really want to have fun this week, be brave and try something new… go outside your comfort zone a little bit and see what happens… you might really be surprised at what can shift when you allow yourself to think outside the box!
And, no matter what, don’t forget to believe in yourself! Believe that you can succeed and do well, and now is a great time to take some time to imagine your dreams coming true - because you are powerful, you are worthy, you are enough, and you deserve your dreams to come true as much as anyone on the planet!
Lastly, remember love rules and be kind to yourself… one o f the easiest and best ways you can do that is to look at where you can simplify and let go of what no longer serves you… whether it’s grudges, sad thoughts, judgments, or literally excess ‘stuff’ in your life… clean your closets (the ones in your mind and the ones in your house) and focus on what’s really important. Know that it’s okay to let go and the timing is exactly right.
It’s a lovely week, with so much potential for being grateful, letting go, and believing in yourself! You've got this! (And, Happy Thanksgiving to all of you celebrating that holiday this week!)
