Do you ever feel like sometimes you’re a bit of a hypocrite? Well allow me this moment of feeling like a hypocrite because I’ve had a small flicker of enlightenment. I sat here today staring at the title of my blog and realising that I’ve lost some of the mojo that inspired that title in the first place.
So why am I no longer feeling inspired and optimistic about my life? It’s because somewhere along the way the human me (as opposed to the super human me who has amazing powers) got a little bit bogged down with worrying about things that simply will be what they will be. Worrying won’t fix them – and yes I hear those of you who are saying but we’ve been telling you that.
I’ve written on this blog for months about setting goals and positive thinking and that’s because that’s what I do, it’s what I’m good at. Well most of the time anyway. Now a big fat whammy has disrupted my life and while it doesn’t directly affect me it has thrown my loved ones into turmoil and what did I do, I suddenly threw in the towel and jumped into the pit of despair with them.
More than ever this is the time when I need to follow my own advice and remember the importance of positive thinking and encouraging words. Not just saying them but believing them and living them as well.
As Karyn said yesterday on my post, sometimes it takes baby steps every day. This time though it will be me guiding a loved one through the baby steps and helping them to help themselves. Where have I been going wrong? I’ve been trying to save the world by myself and feeling like the weight of the world is sitting on my shoulders. Yes it's a problem that I often suffer from - my 'I can fix the world' complex.
Its hard writing this blog sometimes because there’s me that needs to talk about the things that are weighing me down and clouding my normally super clear focus and there’s my respect for those that are going through hard times and don’t need me broadcasting their problems out to the blogosphere.
So consequently as my first step, here are my positive affirmations for this week:
1) I trust in the process of life
2) Everything is getting better every day.
3) I am calm and relaxed in every situation
4) Good times are coming
So I will say them, believe them and live them. However, if anyone finds my mojo before I do - please send it home, I'm missing it.
