Widen your Focus!

Widen your FocusI got a great reminder this morning to Widen my Focus on life, thanks to The Book of Awakening.

Our life is surrounded by miracles, like the sun showing up every morning,  trees that started out as acorns, and of course us humans, just to name a few but we seem to forget about these miracles in our life when the daily routine gets in the way.

How do we change this?… Widen our focus!  When you stub your toe, all you can think about is the pain, and the stupid piece of furniture you just tripped on, completely forgetting that your miracle heart didn’t skip a beat or that your miracle brain sent that pain signal instantaneously.

Next time you’re fixated on something negative in your life, widen your focus until you see the beauty that is in your life!

What “Gratitude” Does for Me

1) Reminds me life is greater than my problems.

No matter how bad my day, when I remember to be grateful for nature, I’m immediately reminded that I’m a part of something huge!

2) Quickly changes my attitude

As soon as I start my “Gratitudes” my attitude immediately lightens and brightens. How can I feel down when I have my beautiful niece, my super fun car or even running water to be grateful for!

3) It makes “Good” just appear!

When I’m focused on gratitude, more and more things that I love seem to magically appear in my life!

4) Brings me peace

When I have gratitude at the forefront of my life, I feel very peaceful. Even if I have a lot on my plate at the time, there is peace in knowing that I truly enjoy the blessings in my life.

5) Inspires Me

My gratitude makes me more charitable. The more I realize how grateful I am, not only for the amazing things in my life, but for the little things too, the more I want to give to others.

Some Kind of Wonderful!

Day 29 of my 31 words in 31 days experiment!

Today’s Word:  WONDERFUL

Friday was wonderful, well not exactly but the theme for the day was “Wonderful”.

The day was just your run of the mill Friday.  I was very busy at work (as usual) and then I spent the evening shopping.  Not much happened that you’d label “Wonderful”.

So when I reflected on the day, I had to get into a different mindset.  As always, gratitude for the day helped me think of a few wonderful things that happened.

  • I realized I had a pink flower popping up on my front door planter (It’s October, that never happens)
  • And then I realized I didn’t wear a coat all day!  Woohooo!
  • I had a good movie on the DVR
  • And I had Chocolate Chip Cookies!

So the day did turn out kind of Wonderful

Peace, Love, Joy and Harmony

Peace Out Sauerkraut!

Day 30 of my 31 words in 31 days experiment!

Today’s Word:  PEACE

Saturday was “Peace” day and it was spent with my extended family.  The day included a ton of kids running around, non-stop eating, bad football and jumping in leaves.  Not exactly what I picture when I think of peace, yet it was peaceful.  I had nowhere else I wanted to be.  Nothing else I wanted to do.  It was loud and chaotic and it was peace!

Peace is not always quiet yoga sessions, a day of meditation or a hike in the woods, sometimes peace is found in a pile of leaves full of toddlers and crazy adults!

Peace, Love, Joy and Harmony

Success! I did it!

Those of you with Toddlers… are you hearing Dora singing “I Did It”?

Day 31 of my 31 words in 31 days experiment!

Today’s Word:  SUCCESS

I have a track record of sometimes not finishing what I start.  But this project I did it, I finished it!  I have to admit, I’m patting myself on my back right now

So did I gain anything from this experiment?

Yes!

I realized that most days of my life had gone by un-reflected on.  I go through the motions of reflecting on the day, but having something different to look at everyday, really made me look at my day in a brand new light.

Through this experiment, I discovered that everyday, no matter what happens you can find something amazing, wonderful, peaceful, full of love, etc… It’s all there, just sometimes we have to look for it!

Peace, Love, Joy and Harmony

Feeling Optimistic!

Day 28 of my 31 words in 31 days experiment!

Today’s Word:  OPTIMISTIC

When I started on this new life path I’m on, I discovered that I had conditioned myself to be negative. When I realized how negative my thoughts were, I got very depressed and thought “How can I ever break this cycle?”.  So I just started small and focused more on gratitude.   I am happy to report that 3 years later, I am a more positive person, more compassionate and kind.  I still have negative tendencies but I do see the positive more readily now.

Every few hours today I would stop what I was doing and take a mental check to see if I was optimistic about what I was doing.  If I wasn’t then I put it aside and moved on to another project.  I only had to put 1 thing aside today.  While working on my new task, I tried to think of positive things about the project I put to the side.  Still, I wasn’t feeling it.  Then it hit me…I don’t have to do that project!  I delegated it to my assistant and moved forward optimistically through my day.  When you focus on the positive, the negative finds it’s way out of your life.  Isn’t that amazing!

Peace, Love, Joy and Harmony

Fear is my Motivation, but not for long!

Day 27 of my 31 words in 31 days experiment!

Today’s Word:  MOTIVATE

Instead of taking today’s word and trying to motivate the heck out of everyone, I decided to look at this word a little differently.  What motivates me to do the things I do everyday?

That is such an uncomfortable question, because I’ve never taken the time to really think about my life like that.  Especially lately, my days seem routine and purposeless, yet everyday I do the same exact thing.  So what has motivated me to think that kind of living was ok?

I’ve been racking my brain all day and I could not come up with one logical positive motive.  With the positive out of the way, I had to start looking at negative motives and I think my motive is FEAR, Fear of the unknown.  I really don’t want to reflect on the negative in my life, I don’t like to give it energy, but maybe if I work through this fear motivator, I can let it go and make room for a success motivator.

I’m not sure what I’m going to do to get rid of the fear (or at least quiet it down), but I know this little life-revelation immediately made me feel lighter!  I definitely have some inner  soul searching to do to get this resolved!  I’ll keep you posted.

Meditation and my Distracted Mind

Day 26 of my 31 words in 31 days experiment!

Today’s Word:  MEDITATE

I meditate everyday.  I’m not very good at it but I do it every morning and usually in the evening too.  But on Meditation day I failed miserably!

I could not keep my mind focused on anything.  I was constantly distracted and never had a moment to myself.  I tried my regular morning meditation and instead of an inner calm, I ran through my “To Do” list.  I tried meditating while brushing my teeth and all I could think about is what I was going to wear that day.  I set an alarm on my phone to go off every few hours to do quick meditations and every time it went off, I turned the alarm off and went back doing what I was doing.

I was so frustrated.  The entire day went by and I didn’t have one reflective/inner moment that I could recall.  I even tried a guided meditation before bed and I fell asleep within minutes.  So I guess my lesson for today is not to force my mediation practice.  The more forced it is, the less likely I am to tune out all the noise around me!

Peace, Love, Joy and Harmony

Day 24 of my 31 words in 31 days experiment!

Today’s Word:  LOVE

I’ve always loved my family, friends and stuff but since I’ve started to transform my life I’ve discovered that “love” isn’t always enough, I’ve learned to appreciate my family, friends and stuff and now I LOVE like I’ve never LOVED before!

With that being said, sometimes I need reminders.  On Sunday I had a family obligation that I was kind of dreading.  I don’t know why, but I felt dread when I thought about my Sunday afternoon.  I decided to change my mindset and think of all the things I love and appreciate about the people I’d be seeing.  Once I went through this exercise, I was embarrassed that I could have had negative feelings about seeing them.  I let negative feelings and untrue thoughts almost ruin my day.  I’m so glad I had a reminder to “Love” today!

Thank you to my large extended family, I can’t imagine how boring my life would be without this huge cast of characters in my life.  You’ve taught me to Love and that is the greatest legacy of every family!

Peace, Love, Joy and Harmony
