What can I say? Maybe I am Pollyanna… or maybe I am just really committed to enjoying the life I have been given.
Whatever it is… I love that part of my personality. I love being able to flip things easily in my mind to see how the moment is supporting me where it is often easier to feel unsupported.
If the quality of our lives comes from the perspective that we hold, why wouldn’t we strive to find the blessings in even the most difficult of situations that life hands to us?
Being more positive sounds great… but where does one start?
When we find that we are struggling during the day and resisting the moment before us, take a deep breath. When I say deep breath I mean a slow exaggerated deep inhalation in through the nose… and long slow exhalation out through the mouth.
When we remember to breathe, we are no longer resisting or judging what is happening in the moment and, instead, are choosing to surrender to it. Surrendering doesn’t mean that we agree with or prefer what is happening. Surrendering means that we have become aware that the moment is creating stress and disharmony for us.
When we choose to take big deep breaths we are able to put a pause button on our normal reaction and choose to create a meaning of the moment that supports the way we want to feel… instead of feeling like we are powerless to what happens in life.
I love waking up in the morning and using the affirmation, “Every moment of my life supports me”.
When something creates stress for me, generally it means something isn’t going the way that I want or planned it to go. If I believe that every moment supports me, if something doesn’t go the way that I want, it is an opportunity for explore how what is being given to me is even a better opportunity. How is this moment supporting me? When we remember to breathe and asked ourselves this question during the day, an extraordinary thing happens. When we close our eyes to sleep at night and think about our whole day, we begin to feel supported and empowered by every moment in our lives… and I have to say that is one awesome feeling!
