The definition of Stubbornness and madness sound the same to me. The definition of stubbornness is dogged determination not to change one’s attitude or position on something. Like the definition of madness: doing the same thing and expecting different results.
It’s difficult to watch stubborn people repeatedly making the same mistakes because they refuse to take ownership of the situation they are in. The only one that can make your situation better is YOU. Blaming others or the environment is a waste of energy. Waiting for someone else to make it better for you is also a waste of time.
My best advice here is to pay attention to the areas in your life that you are struggling with whether it’s your family life, personal goals or work. Ask yourself questions like:
What can I do differently to achieve the result I want? What feedback or constructive criticism can I use to move ahead? Am I keeping a pleasant and happy attitude while trying to find a solution?
Remember you are the only one who can improve your situation. Take ownership of your life and your problems. And give thanks for recognizing the problem.
Life is as easy or as difficult as you make it. One can wake up and thank the universe for a new day. Or you can wake up grunting and upset that it’s morning and keep hitting the snooze button.
One can look at sleep as the caffeine he or she needs to wake up bright eyed and bushy tailed. Or think that the day can not start until the caffeine kicks in from their morning coffee.
When it’s time to go to work one can dread it – complain about the commute and sulk. Or put a smile on their face and be grateful to have a job to go to.
You see it’s all about perspective if you look at the glass as being half empty then you are most likely going to find things to complain about. However if you are truly appreciative of life and you roll with the punches you will find yourself happy and successful.
I went to the acquarium on Monday and heard something interesting – the maritime volunteer said we have electricity and energy in our body that sharks can feel. If a new diver went into the shark tank to feed the sharks and the diver was nervous the electrity – pulses they send out would make the shark feel tense and uncomfortable and the shark would stay clear of that diver.
What an interesting piece of information. If sharks can feel this electricity and energy what about humans? When we are around certain people who have low energy we feel dragged down- depressed and uncomfortable. While being around people with high energy makes us feel motivated, alive and energized.
When we feel down and depressed we are sending out low frequency vibrations that are attracting the wrong people and relationships. We need to take care of ourselves and be the person who attracts high energy people so we can get on a higher frequency.
When we surround ourselves with winners we become a winner. Those who are spirituality connected have a higher frequency. And are happy, successful and satisfied with their life.
Today be aware of what energy you are putting out there. Everyday make an effort to be on a higher frequency so you are attracting the right people in your life. Get spiritually connected to your inner self and the universe- this will be the quickest way to get on the right wave length.
Today we are going to open our mind and thoughts to receiving. We are going to be limitless and open up the gates to everything we want. There is only abundance and love in our lives.
Life is full of love, peace and serenity. And we deserve to allow these positive emotions into our heart and seek out what it is that we want. There is no one holding us back from getting what we desire- good health, love, wealth and happiness is within our reach.
Believe and you shall receive. Keep your thoughts clear and your mind focused on what it is that you want. We have the power to obtain our dreams and goals. Our thoughts and actions dictate our future.
Be open to receive – be grateful for what you have and know there are no limits on what you can achieve. Stay balanced don’t give away your energy on what you don’t want – stay grounded and only focus on abundance. Know that you deserve the best and the universe wants to make you happy.
Don’t waste time on worries as these negative feelings will only delay and block you from receiving. Stay in the now – know that you are worthy to receive. Believe you have what you need and it will be there for you.
Days where you share your feelings in hopes of getting compassion but the conversation turns into a battle of hurtful words. It’s fustrating when you don’t get the results you are looking for.
Arguments can turn ugly and can causepain. Anger is poison and toxic to your body and your relationship. Take control of your health and saniety by ending the argument. Find peace because the damage you can cause is not easy to fix.
Self care is not a luxury it’s a necessity. Most of us put ourselves last and everything else first. The needs of others are not more important than our own needs.
How is your relationship with yourself?
Do you check in and ask yourself how you are feeling?
What have you done for yourself to let your body know you are important?
It’s important that we do what makes us happy. When we are happy and grounded we are healthier and stronger. We can listen more and be more aware of our environment which makes us better people, partners, friends and parents.
What good are you to others if you are dehydrated- hungry – sick – stressed – depressed- unhealthy?
You must check in everyday to make sure you are getting what you need in order to take care of those around you. Be good to yourself my friends. You deserve it!
It’s always hard for me to sit down and rest. There is always something I need or want to do. I get so excited when I’m able to put a check next to an item on my to do list. But life is different now. I don’t always have the time to actually write a “to do list” it’s more of a mental check list of things to do.
I feel more relaxed now, even though I rarely have time for myself. There is a feeling of calm and assurance that I’m right where I’m suppose to be.
I recently read on linked in that people who are depressed live in the past while people who live in the future are anxious. I’m perfectly content in the present.
My spirituality gives me the confidence I need to be present. This feeling makes me happy- secure and calm. I love feeling calm it’s one of my favorite emotions.
