The Power of Positive Thought

"An idea ran back and forward in his head like a blind man, knocking over the solid furniture. (Anonymous)"

I love that quote! I saw it on my Facebook feed and knew I had to bring it here. It describes my head perfectly! So many thoughts, so little order!

It used to worry me, I used to wonder if I was going mad. You know when you meditate and you allow your thoughts to quieten and then supposedly these amazing revelations come into your mind. I could never 'get' meditation and so I gave up trying. I even have a relaxation tape that you are supposed to listen to and take in what he is saying. Not me ... my thoughts are wandering about all over the place thinking great thoughts (I wish) and only coming back to listen occassionally.

I am sure it's not because I am a Gemini - I don't really believe in horoscopes ... unless it fits what I want to happen of course!

Last year I did a quiz thingy on FB and the result was interesting. Now I know many hundreds of others would have got the same result but it stuck a chord.

2010 will bring a happier, more positive you. This may be because of your new years resolution. If this is the case then you will stick to it and make life better not only for you but the people around you. Others will notice you changing and they will welcome this more positive side of you. Look for a complete change around April of 2010. This is the time when you will begin to take note of your life being xompletely different from last year at the same time.

I printed it out and put it on the wall right next to my computer and looked at it and read it often. I am a firm believer in the power of positive thought and affirmations. I just forget to do them!

So did it come true? It did .. I have changed. The power of positive thought worked, not hurt by it being the time in my life where I have worked through the grief and know that this is a time for me. I kept looking at it and thinking - 'yeah - it is happening' and when April arrived I was happy - it had come true! The funny thing is, once I got to April, I kind of got stuck! There was no little note reminding me I can and will change. Nothing telling me it is going to be a good year. And the even funnier thing is, it is only as I am writing this that it suddenly occured to me that maybe I should write another affirmation about where I want my life to go!

So where do I want my life to go? 
  • I want to like me more as a person, emotionally, physically and intellectually.
  • I want to  be healthier, eat better, exercise more.
  • I want to become more financially aware and so worry less
  • I want to feel secure in my work and to enjoy it more; I want the negative people I work with to finally decide this is not the place for them! 
  • I want to write - to have 'One Woman's Journey' published
And then for my family ...
  • I want my kids to be happy
  • I want my kids to be healthier, to eat better and in the case of 2 exercise more. 
  • I want Lachie to get through the early teens without me feeling the need to kill him!
  • I want Lachie to go to the high school of my choice.
Nothing world shattering, just every day normal stuff and I am working towards each of them, but maybe, just maybe writing them down and looking at the every day may just help me to remember where I want to be. It might just help me not to buy something I really don't need, or not to eat that food because I am bored or to sit and write instead of wasting time not really doing anything.

I guess time will tell because I am off to write them out as poitive affirmations right now and print them with a pretty picture and then put them over the top of my old affirmation. 

The power of positive thought! Look out world - here comes the new me! (again).

I hope you achieve your dream of getting 'One Woman's Journey' into print; it's a moving story and one I'm sure would inspire other people going through a similar experience. :) xx
