What would it take to remove all or most of the negative from your life? If you don’t have any, then you are absolutely way ahead of many of us! Is there any one thing that would make things better? Would you like to improve a relationship, get a new job, or perhaps change your own attitude about something. Often some of these are the most difficult changes to make. I would also like to point out that it is better to only work on one or a few changes at a time. Also, while we can’t change others, we can change how we react to others or situations. So I am not suggesting that anyone quit a job or people, but ask is there a way that we can reframe our approach, our own attitude, or how much time we give to an activity that will bring greater satisfaction to our everyday lives? Is there a way to set some new boundaries for yourself to help bring a new positivity to your life?
Last year, I found myself choosing some of these changes for myself. But then some other changes I really didn’t think I wanted or planned on, but they happened regardless. It was very humbling and a huge reminder; that not everything is in our control, no matter how much we try to make it so. I went screaming and kicking against some of these changes. But almost a year later, I have found that the negative things are pretty much purged and I have gained a new found sense of peace. A peace that is a new norm that I am still adjusting to, but continues to bring happiness.
Is there any one thing in your life that you would like to change that you feel would make your life happier in the coming year?
