Writing has brought me new insights not only in the realm of the literary world, but in my world as well.
I have become acutely aware of how I live my life- how I write my story. Every comma, every period, and every exclamation point makes a statement about what will happen next.
When a relationship ends, do you bring closure by putting a period or do you leave space for pain and suffering to continue by putting a comma?
When you’ve been touched by love, do you use an exclamation mark to signify importance or a period to shut it down?
We are the authors of our story. If you want change, growth and expansion – be aware of how you are writing. Place a period where things should end and a comma where you want to continue. And when something has impacted you, remember to finish it off with an exclamation mark so that everyone knows (including yourself) just how important that experience was.
Write your story and live it the way you have always dreamed.
Have you ever heard of the phrase, “Change your thoughts, change your life” ? Easier said than done, right?
We know that having a positive mindset and joyful thoughts are the keys to accessing the abundance of whatever it is we desire; Success, love, happiness, health. But why is it so difficult to change our thoughts? Think about it. Have you ever been in the midst of an argument with your partner, friend or children? Your emotions have gotten the better of you and you are angry or hurt. How easy is it, in that moment, to decide to be happy? Its not. But it can be!
By understanding and bringing awareness to the fact that our minds are conditioned to respond to situations based on past experiences, we can bring forth new possibilities for how we can interpret our world. The key to changing our thoughts is to reprogram our conditioned mind so that we may offer a new set of beliefs for interpreting our world.
To quote The Work of Byron Katie, begin to ask yourself “Is it true?” These three magical words hold the power to reprogram how we think by questioning our conditioned mind. Next time you are confronted with a fear, thought or situation, instead of defaulting to your early programming, ask yourself “Is it true?” and watch a new life of thoughts emerge.
