UNEXPECTED WISDOM

Yesterday I got some news that hurt a bit. Instead of dwelling on it and crying for hours and hours. I regrouped and changed my mind about "why". Yes I cried a little...just a little...barely. I realized that it was a small thing.

I have survived...overcome a great deal. How could I let a small disappointment undo all my progress? I mean I realized that nothing in my life changed based on that disappointment. I didn't give it any more energy. I didn't go back and think what could I have done to change the outcome. Doing that is a real waste of time. Now onto the next thing. Onto the next goal. opportunity, dream.

As my Crush loves to say...You create your reality. I used to be baffled by that statement. I could not wrap my brain around it. But I tell you it is clear to me now. Change your mind to change your life. What's on your mind is reflected in your life---that goes for people, things, books, activities. All those things reflects what is on your mind. YES!

So letting a small disappointment stump me, trip me, send me into a funk does not serve me or my spirit. That's it. And you know it's not about small or large disappoinment. It is any perceived disappointment.

I have come far. I have endured much and here I am standing in love. In grace. In full awareness of myself. I feel wise today...unexpectedly so.

"Change your mind to change your life."

Very much related to Proverbs 4:23 (AMP)
"Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life".

It's a good thing when we realize that everything in life begins up in our hearts and minds, isn't it? And it's up to us to keep everything straight.

Man those are words to live by real talk. I try to stay positive at all times but even I ocassionally get tripped up by something dissapointing. But those words are similar to the ones that I tell myself to get me right back to where I need to be. Great post!
