Life Will Never Be “Fixed”: Enjoy it Anyway
The client didn’t hire you? You didn’t get the raise? Feeling stuck? When you focus on what you don’t have or what situations displease you, your mind becomes darkened. You take for granted even the sunshine, flowers, and beauty and joy around you. You may look for what is wrong and refuse to enjoy life until it is “fixed.”
Our life is a big fat puzzle and sometimes the puzzle pieces don’t all fit together just right, but if you focus on what is working instead of what is not working you don’t miss seeing the beauty around you. Sometimes my Registered Dietitian clients and I are happy things didn’t work out, as it made room for even better things.
I was extremely frustrated and sad that I was not hired for a certain meeting keynote. I told myself you have a choice. “I choose!” “I choose abundance!” I told myself I would attract something better and I did; a speaking engagement for $1000 more to an easier, more grateful audience. The audience was extra wonderful as they gave me presents when I showed up. I had interviewed a few of them before the keynote. And three people were so excited they sat in the front row. I felt like a million dollars. All because something else did not work out!
Remember, you attract who you are not what you want!
When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears.
