When I was asked to write on the topic of The Power of Your Thoughts for The Better Apart Blog, I thought, Fabulous! That’s my jam! It was to my surprise when I sat down to write, I was completely stuck. I was so confused what the problem was; This is who I am! This is what I do! I practice living a mindful life and help guide others to use their thoughts to think higher, to think better.
It wasn’t until I took a couple of days—okay, more like weeks—to process and acknowledge that I was going through my own life challenges, and it was a doozy! I’ve learned to live my life mindfully with the power of my thoughts and my inner knowing shining through. This has led me down a path to face challenges, big and small, with more ease. I learned to not waste energy worrying about things that most of the time never even happened. It organically became my way of life—healthier and happier. I was left to ask myself a very big question: “What the hell was going on?” I took my own advice that I often ask others to do; Look in the mirror. It always helps to look deep in the refection of your own eyes. So deep that you connect with your soul. That is where your truth lies. If you do not recognize yourself in the mirror, something must shift.
I watched my eyes fill with tears and reminded myself to take deep breaths. I knew that would help me feel calm and more centered. I noticed that the emotions that came up felt familiar. I was reminded of a past life event: My
divorce. A defeated and paralyzed feeling came over me, but at the same time, it also felt pleasantly different. I was reminded of my superpower that got me through the most challenging time of my life and all the opportunities that were waiting for me on the other side. Everything I needed to know was in the power of my thoughts and inner knowing. I realized that it was not a coincidence that I was asked to write about the power of your thoughts. Rather a reminder to accept and shift my perspective to let go of what I couldn’t control and get a handle on what I could control.
Controlling the Controllable!
I immediately felt a sense of relief, insight and strength. The writing began to flow. My only hope is that my words will resonate with an individual to help them find their superpower.
