I want to leave you with a short sweet message going into the weekend. I want you to understand that “You’re In Control Of How Your Life Is”.
Believe it or not, we’re all energy beings. Whether or not we’re attracting positive energy or negative energy is solely up to us. Yes, life is going to happen. Yes, somethings are outside of our control. However, your reaction isn’t. You can CHOOSE to give that event positive or negative energy.
For an example, if someone cuts you off while driving. You can CHOOSE to be upset for the remainder of the day or you can CHOOSE to let it go. Another example. The father of your child doesn’t come pick up your kid yet again. You’re extremely upset because your child is now upset, and no mother wants to witness that. Please know, you have every right to feel how you want. However, you should NEVER allow those emotions to consume you.
Let me paint an event clearer picture. The father of your child doesn’t come kid y’all kid. You become angry because of the inconsistency in your child life. You send several heated texts or calls. You’re yelling, you’re hurt. Your child now feeds off this energy, so now they are misbehaving. Now, you’re even more frustrated and have an extreme headache.
Get where I’m going with this!?
I’m not saying you don’t have a right to be upset. However, don’t let your emotions consume you. Deal with the disappointment and refocus your energy onto something more positive. For example, you can take your child somewhere special to get their mind off their father not showing up and have an open conversation with them about it.
We have more power then we realize! We have more control over our life, our thoughts, our actions then we realize. We must be intentional with EVERYTHING in our life, especially with our thoughts. You don’t have to remain angry that you’re a single mother. You don’t have to remain angry that you were let go from your job. You don’t have to remain angry that you had to start over. Those are all moments to take back control of your life and to change the narrative.
I’ll leave you with this exercise for the weekend. Take one thing you’d like to shift in your life. I want you to write down 5 affirmations. For an example, if it’s be more positive, write 5 affirmations about being positive. I want you to meditate on that for the weekend for at least 5-10 minutes. When you complete that, write down how you feel and then repeat the activity.
If you decide to do this small activity, let me know how it went. You can comment under this blog post or send me an email. I would love to hear how it went!
Until next time,
