21-B Perception

The upcoming topic will be Leave Your Ego Behind!  Join me Monday to see more!

Happy 4th of July!  Check back next week for a new post.  I am taking this week off because my youngest child starts kindergarten next week and this is the only week both of my kids have off until our next track-out.  For my perfect balance, I feel I need to spend some time with them this week.  What do you need for your perfect balance this week?  Enjoy your holiday!

Change how you view the world and yourself one thought at a time.  Do you normally dwell on everything going wrong or do you see the things going right in your life?  Shift your focus and perception and change the overall impression of  your life.  Shift from seeing the negative and begin to view things in a more positive light.  I know sometimes this is easier said than done, but by first noticing how you view things and by then making small changes, you really can change your life.

Make a choice to view the bumps and obstacles as just that.  They are happening for a reason.  What can you learn from them?  I believe we invite into our lives what we are ready for, and when things show up, they are there to teach us a lesson we are ready to learn.  Give yourself credit for being ready to learn something new every time a challenge comes your way.  Without the challenges, you may not be able to  move onto the next phase or step in your life.  Begin to see that things are perfect just the way they are.  Our lives are all unfolding at the perfect time and in the perfect way for each of us.  By just changing your perception about this, you can begin to appreciate your life in a more fulfilling way.

Either journal about the following questions or spend some time thinking about each of  your answers.
- What is going on in your life right now?
- What lesson could it be there to teach you?
- What lessons are you ready to learn?
- How can you change your perception of things showing up in your life?
- How can you begin to see things in a more positive way?
-What do you need to work on the most?
- Why does this seem so hard to do?
- What do you need to give yourself credit for accomplishing?

Each time you think something negative about yourself, another person or your circumstances, begin to reshape your thoughts.  Find a more positive spin to put on everything that comes your way.  Really focus on changing your perception of you and notice how that impacts everything else.

Topic 21 Bonus Challenge:
Think about the way you view others. If you see the negative in others then this is what they give you. Make a choice to change your perception and really work on finding something positive in everyone you see. If it is your boss, the grocery store clerk or the neighbor down the street, bring the positive out in them and allow the positive to come into your life

Enjoy the journey!
