Positive Thoughts

Posted: 20 Nov 2015 04:45 PM PST
It’s always necessary to accept when some part of your life has reached its inevitable end.  Closing the door, completing the chapter, turning the page, etc. – it doesn’t matter what you title it; what matters is that you find the strength to leave in the past those parts of your life that are over.
It’s all about embracing the truth: What has happened is uncontrollable; what you do now changes everything!
Of course, knowing this and actually living a lifestyle that reinforces this truth are two very different things.  Letting go is NOT easy – it’s a journey that is traveled one day at a time.  If you stick with it, here’s what your journey will ultimately teach you:
  1. The most powerful changes happen in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over everything you don’t.
  2. Most people make themselves unhappy simply by finding it impossible to accept life just as it is presenting itself right now.
  3. If you worry too much about what might be, and wonder too long about what might have been, you will ignore and completely miss what is.
  4. When you are lost in worry, it is easy to mistake your worries for reality, instead of recognizing that they are just thoughts. 
  5. The biggest obstacle to growth you’ll ever have to overcome is your mind.  Once you can overcome that, an overcome anything.
