Yesterday I was clever so I wanted to change the world,
Today I am wise, so I’m changing myself.
When 2018 started, I was completely determined to make it MY YEAR! I turn 60 this year and with the beginning of each new decade of my life, I like to start it off with a bang! Some dramatic change that adds simplicity and peels away all of the layers of living that I have accumulated. (you can only carry around so much emotional baggage!)
So this year I was determined to stay focused on the positive, every day, regardless of what else is going on in my world or the world as a whole. I set a few intentions for this year, one was to continue to maintain my daily meditation practice, listen to my intuition more and let go of worry, doubt and overwhelm.
In the last two weeks, the Universe decided to put the shift in my thinking to the test, delivering me a series “what else could go wrong?” antics. What I found when I shifted and focused on as much positive as I could, was angels disguised as humans.
Angels who helped me navigate my situation, no questions asked. Who remained calm and kept my problem in their sights and worked with me. Angels who, when I became frustrated, empathized and once again remained calm. And even a “coffee angel” who gave me a much-needed cup of that wonderful brew. (most of you know how I feel about my coffee LOL)
As I write this and look back on these last two weeks, I see and appreciate the blessings that these angels gave to me and how even in the face of lots of frustration and stress, focusing on the positive made things easier.
I know this year will be filled with more of these challenges, I fully expect it because life is a bumpy, rough journey with smooth edges thrown in to temper the path. But knowing that my journey now is the beginning of a new decade, I’m more determined to make more smooth edges and smile often over the rough parts.
How about you? Can you join me in this new way of thinking and together we can be wise enough to change ourselves? What a beautiful impact we could make on the whole world.
Leave a comment and tell me what shifts you have made in your thinking. And please share this post with a friend.
Peace and Love!
