Life is primarily choices, not that you can choose things that happen to you, but how you react to them. Life bring, disease, accidents, and other hardships, but whether you suffer through it or not, is a choice. There was a time I would have disagreed with it, telling myself that I just didn’t understand. Gratefully I understood better by the time the end of my mother’s life came to be. I could have been frustrated, angry, impatient, but was not. I understood this was her path, not mine and was able to help her through it without taking anything personally. She was surrounded by my Loving Self until the end. For that I am grateful.
Each day offers the same thing- a choice of how we will look at the things that come our way.
Be grateful. For every negative thought that comes into your head, find something to be grateful for. The more you do it, the easier it becomes. I am blessed to live overlooking a beautiful lake. I begin my days looking out and being grateful for my surroundings and my life.
Follow gratitudes with affirmations of how your life is or will be. Some affirmations I have borrowed and use are:
2. I am grateful!
4. Everything is happening perfectly.
5. I act from a place of love and courage.
6. I am enough.
7. I hold my well being sacred.
8. I am positive.
10. I am accepting and forgiving.
