“The same boiling water that softens the potato hardens the egg. It’s about what you’re made of, not the circumstances.” Unknown
We are often hearing that it’s not what happens to us but how we react to it that makes the difference. At a deeper level we really do know this to be true, but it can be hard to rise above it when we feel life has delivered us an unfair deal, or when we have made a decision that comes back to ‘bite us in the b…’ We want to blame everyone out there, but not ourselves. When in that situation we don’t want to hear that we have attracted whatever has happened, that we create our own reality with our predominant thoughts. Yes I know we write down our goals, put out the positive affirmations, and wait for our dreams to materialise. But what are the thoughts you are having for the rest of the day? Are you doubting yourself, not really believing in all this stuff or listening to the inner critic telling you’re aren’t good enough in some way?
It’s time to make some changes in your head. When we listen to the judge we close down our energy and effectively put out thoughts that have a low, slow vibration, and attract more of that into our lives. When we have a daily practice of something as simple as writing down what we are grateful each day, research has shown that we raise our vibration and that then is what goes out into the universe to attract more of that into our lives. As Denis Waitley says, “There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist; or accept the responsibility for changing them.” Which choice are you going to make?
Enjoy choosing what it will be!
