Happiness, is it a frame of mind?
An object? Money?
Having the latest new tech, designer clothes?
Or the perfect body? (Which by the way, doesn’t exist!)
Even someone who you consider pretty damn close to the ideal body, sees flaws in themselves.
So how can we be happy?
Happiness is a skill, it is a lifelong practice.
Have you ever noticed that you could look at yourself in the mirror and think hey, I’m looking good today, then moments later you totally just see yourself in a completely different light. You haven’t changed but your view, your mind, has!!!
How we think and the way we feel changes all the time so everything we see also has a different value.
So knowing that, if we retrain how we think and feel can we then get the output we want, or at least closer to it? In my opinion, yes we can!!
So let’s start to put this into practice. Every cell of your being needs to jump on board for real success. It is not enough to think alone, you must waken your body to feel it too.
Live it, breathe it as if it were already here.
Appreciation and gratitude for you.
You are amazing aren’t you? Yes, yes, YES!
Naturally most of us are geared to finding something negative to focus on, its part of our ancient brain hard wiring, so when we notice we are doing this trey to switch it up and focus on the positive stuff, think about what makes you unique?
What are your qualities? Maybe you are kind or caring? Fun, passionate or creative? Humble or calm or wild and crazy? Maybe you have amazing hair or the cutest nose or dimple? A voice that makes others want to listen to you forever.
Take a moment to sit peacefully and just think of things you can say make you uniquely you. See if you can increase the amount of positive attributions each practice.
Your amazing body. Show gratitude to your body for working, for being amazing! Feel blessed for the gift of life, movement, sight, speech, digestion and the ability to just even think about this. Be thankful and appreciate what your body does for you. No matter what is going on or what you are going through, what does your body do for you? How it copes with daily tasks. These are just simple things we often take for granted, but these are our blessings. What other amazing things can you do?
The way you think
The brain is like a recording device, if all you have recorded time and again is negativity, unkind words, frustration because you can’t do something, then guess what? That’s what you will keep on getting.
It’s time to change that recording, time to take back charge of how you want to feel? How you want to show up to those around you and the world. Lets create that.
Imagine you already have that, create the feeling inside you as if you already have it, what does it feel like? What does it look like. Really feel it, meditate and focus on that.
Start creating the future and the neural pathways and the energy around you that brings you that much closer to it .
