Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life

If we can find a small ounce of gratitude, no matter our situation, we elevate ourselves, our spirit, and our entire overall well-being!

  • We aren’t supposed to suppress our feelings — even our hurt. We need to feel the feelings to get through the feelings, and to the other side of our growth. It’s how we respond afterward that matters.
  • When we remember to trust — with wild abandon — (even during the hard times), we can more easily move out of our fear-based thoughts and back into our love-based thoughts.
  • Letting go of the outcome enables us to free ourselves from attachments, and be open to the guidance we will receive from the Universe (if we allow it.) It’s not about giving up, but about remaining flexible — and open to surprise opportunities that can also come about.
  • We need to simply believe…. With God, ALL things are possible! The Universe is limitless.
  • Finding gratitude in every moment — (even in the midst of the sheisse) — keeps us moving back up in frequency to attract that which we actually desire. (What we focus our energy upon is what we will experience.)
  • When we stay tuned in to our highest self and our Source (God/ Universe/ etc) — we can experience the small wins — that silver lining — behind every situation.
  1. I let go. I let go of the outcome. [Notice, we didn’t give up. Joel was on the phone seeking the closest available aid we could locate while I took on the spiritual side of the quest during dinner-making! Remember, there is a difference between not trying, and not forcing.] The worst-case scenario was that we would have to miss out on surprising the girls with a visit to a theme park that we wanted to bring them to at the end of our travels — a couple of states away en-route back home… I figured, it’s close enough to home. We can go a different time. I let it go.
  2. NEXT, I found all sorts of things to be grateful for, in spite of the circumstances:
  • Our camper trailer braking system enabled us to get to a local campground for the night, so we could tend to this problem. (We weren’t stuck on the side of the road somewhere…. Amen again.)
  • Because we could disconnect the truck from the trailer, we were setting up ‘home’ for the amount of time we needed to stay in the campground, and the truck could still be worked on without a problem.
  • We had no more reservations for the remaining 2 days of our trip! We could totally wing-it as needed, per the timing of our fix.
  • I was able to begin making dinner as Joel was outside using the phone to contact the closest mechanic shops we could find via the phone book located in the campground office.
  • *As you can see…. none of this was ‘ideal’ or what we’d hoped for — but — there were still things to be grateful for. I dug ’em up, and shifted my energy with gratitude.
