Peace, joy, and happiness are your birthright.
As long as you can keep this thought uppermost in your mind, you’ll stay on the right path.
Every time a roadblock appears, remind yourself. You don’t have to be in control of each moment, just the way you respond to it. This is the challenge. You have to keep the gratitude rolling, no matter what happens externally.
It’s tougher some days than others. There are days when it feels like you should have stayed in bed. But how we meet those hard days is the real test.
If you make the effort to “stay positive”, you’ll get through and find that the detour you didn’t plan on might just be a shortcut to where you really need to be.
Stop yourself a couple of times today. Think about how you’ve reacted to external events. Are you able to embrace every change in plan that presents itself to you? And can you do this in a spirit of thankfulness, knowing that each of these events has a purpose?
Can you remember a time when something changed your plans, and you ended up much better off? Keep that thought close, to remind yourself that you don’t know what will happen today, but that it WILL work toward your best interest.
If you can allow that it’s possible that “bad things” can have a positive impact, you’re halfway there.
Keep the spirit of gratitude close to your heart. Be ready to experience joy at any moment. And remember that you are a lighthouse, shining love to all around you, every day, all the time.
And have a spectacular day today!
