We’ve all been there – a place that feels like hell on earth. And we ask ourselves the same question over and over: “Why me?”
Have you ever stopped to think about this continuous loop and how amazingly coincidental that it continues to happen over and over again? If your thoughts and beliefs are permanently fixed on the “why”, you will never have an opportunity to investigate the “what” for your life.
Life obstacles and traumas are inevitable and they happen for a reason. The sooner we learn the lesson, embrace change, and focus our thoughts on what we DO want versus what we DON’T want, the sooner we can begin to move from living hell to living well. Change is growth, and the only want to have a fulfilling life is to be willing to grow beyond your comfort zone into a place of peace and purpose.
You have all the tools you need to begin today. You didn’t arrive at this place of misery overnight, so don’t expect to feel better about your life overnight – it takes time. Sometimes your ship has to crash (friendSHIPS, relationSHIPS, etc.), in order to save your boat. Life’s rejections are Universe protections. The storms will pass; they always do.
Begin with acknowledgement. Recognize that you are miserable and admit it to yourself. Say it out loud, have a pity party, and then prepare yourself for a magnificent transformation.
Once you have mourned and grieved your past life, losses, failures, disappointments, and regrets, you can begin to slowly align thoughts around a better YOU. Begin each morning with a positive statement. It can be as simple as “I am worthy”. Throughout the day, become more aware of your thoughts and where you are focusing your energy and attention.
As you consistently focus your thoughts on positive statements, you will eventually begin to feel and experience a change in your life. I have been through tests, and I have many testimonies that this process WILL work. It has worked for me, and it can work for you too!
