beth mccain quotes 6675

There are some days that it feels as if it is heavy somehow. It’s like the weight of the world is on your shoulders and you feel as if you can’t catch a break. Everything feels negative; whether it is or isn’t. Have you ever had one of those days? Well, guess what? The day doesn’t have to continue that way. You have a choice for it to change.

Do what I call the ‘lather, rinse, and repeat’ method. Take a moment and close your eyes. Take a deep breath in and when you exhale let your shoulders relax. With each breath in think of something positive that you enjoy; your dog, a dress in a shop window, a conversation you may have had, a good memory, and place it in front of your mind. Hold that thought and feeling for just an instant.¬† Think about how it feels and then imitate that feeling for the rest of the day.

If your mind goes back to the negative then lather in your good feeling thoughts, rinse off the negative, and then repeat if necessary. Keep diverting your focus to what there is positive in your life and continue the lather, rinse, and repeat until you no longer have to repeat and are in the positive place you want to be in.

It’s all about choice my friend. You choose whether you are negative or positive. Experiences can create thoughts and feelings but we get to choose how they will affect our life experience.
