Living In The Now…

Standard

Got to live in the now…

Absolutely plan for the future…but live in the now.

Living in the now means; embracing your life as it is now instead of reacting to it. Embrace yourself for who you are; not for who you were 10 or 15 years ago; or who you think you’ll be 10 or 15 years from now.

For me it’s embracing the facts:

I am 42 years old this year; my life isn’t where I thought it would be.

It’s also about embracing the fact that it’s okay that this is so.

Life is funny in that it never really turns out the way we want, but it does turn out the way we hoped it would but would never admit it.

So I task you…my ardent readers…with this…

Live In The Now…

Embrace Who You Are…

New Frontiers…

Standard

After being unemployed for over a year…I have finally found employment!!!

Super excited!!

It’s a short contract…and that’s okay.

I’ll take it…

It’s dipping the toes back in the lake as it were…to help me get use to dealing with people again, as the last year I have spent mostly talking to the dogs…and my mom about the dogs…and their poop. It happens…dogs, as do we humans, should they have a malaise of some kind it’s usually evident in their poop. It is also indicative if my girls have had a dietary indiscretion (pretty sure they both managed to eat a raisin…which is seriously bad for them…and if it wasn’t a raisin then it was the bacon…)

I am hopeful about this new opportunity…

While I am hopeful I still struggle with the negative thoughts in my mind…

The ones that say I am going to fail at this job…

The ones that say I am rubbish and will be fired immediately…

I have to work hard to get rid of those thoughts…they are deeply rooted in my mind…

I know in my heart I will overcome these thoughts…

It is HARD work…I will do it…

 

Laws of Attraction…The Power of Positivity…

Standard

I recently took part in an online ‘seminar’ about the Laws of Attraction…

90 minutes of what was essentially an infomercial, like those ones on late night television. Now while I didn’t buy the product their selling, I am intrigued enough to wonder about if the Laws of Attraction do work, do visualizations work for improving your life?

Now while I can get behind getting the negative thoughts in your head out of there and replacing them with positive thoughts, is that really what is going to attract what you want? Are thoughts enough? Or do you need to manifest those thoughts into something those outside of ourselves can actually see.

Apparently the Law of Attraction – according to answers.com –  is basically one of the 7 Super Laws exists in this world. Basically put The Law Of Attraction states that everything “attracts” or manifest based on our human brain results of thoughts.

It would seem a rather loft, worldly view…and perhaps it is…and perhaps it is not.

As you go though life, your visualizations will change…for what you want at 45 might not be what you wanted at 25. Me, I wanted to live in a hacienda on the beach of Puerto Vallarta and run a fishing charter company with my dad when I was 25, now, at almost 45; I just want a job I can hang on to longer than 18 months, and a stronger foundation in God.

If visualization works for you…wonderful…

If it doesn’t…that’s okay too…
