Hey Hey! I hope you are all off to an amazing week filled with happiness, love and LOTS of positive energy! ( I know I am : ) ) Today I wanted to talk about how we ARE the writers and deciders of our life. How it’s up to us to be happy….be positive…create the life we want….and just ENJOY the present moment. Hope you enjoy this post today : )
So, I was dropping my little ones off to school this morning and I heard the song “Unwritten” by Natasha Bedingfield (if you don’t know this song….go youtube it. I love it.) I was singing along and really zoned in on her lyrics…..then it hit me….this song is the perfect inspiration for my next blog post!!!! (so, here we are…..with a new blog. Thanks Natasha! haha) To me…..this song speaks on many levels of how we are in control of our lives, our happiness and what we want to fill our pages with . (“I’m just beginning, the pens in my hand, ending unplanned” )…It’s about living your life…not being afraid to take chances….”coloring outside the lines” and not being afraid to make mistakes…..being happy…..living in the present moment….enjoyment….realizing that your life is UNWRITTEN until YOU fill the page with what you want your life story to say. (“Staring at the blank page before you……”)
This song inspired me to really think, “We are the deciders of our life story….how many people realize this?”. How many of you out there know how powerful you are in “filling up” those unwritten pages of your life with your attitude and intentions? Well, if you don’t….I’m here to tell you that YOU ARE POWERFUL. Your attitude, your thoughts and your intentions play a huge role in how you shape the book in your “life story”. The pages that lie before you are UNWRITTEN and are waiting to be filled up by YOU. You are the author in your book of life……how are you going to fill those pages? Me…..I’m going to fill them with as much love, happiness, kindness, positive energy, smiles, appreciation, gratitude and ENJOYMENT as I can.
The wonderful thing about your life is that it’s YOUR story…no one else’s. You get to decide every single day how you want to feel, how you react to situations and what you do with your day. (yes, we all have responsibilities or things we must do everyday…some of which we don’t want to do. BUT…when you go at those moments with a crappy attitude….does it really make those things easier to do? NO. So why not choose a better suited attitude) Stop giving power to situations and the people around you……stop giving them the power to affect your mood, attitude and your day. Erase those moments from your “story” and rewrite it with how you WANT it to be. (not saying you can “delete” those things that come up, but you can decide how you want to react to it, if you want to give it energy, etc.. …) When I say “It’s all about your attitude. Happiness and positivity is a CHOICE.”, I totally mean it. It is. It’s all an INSIDE JOB. The more you practice the “attitude of gratitude” and realizing just how MUCH you have to be thankful for in this life…..the better elevated your attitude will become. (Stop what you are doing right now…..say aloud 5 things you are grateful for…right now. See, I bet you could keep naming stuff off…..Be Grateful) The more your practice this “attitude of gratitude” the more habit forming it becomes (trust me, I know…..a couple years ago I was in the same boat as many of you….trying to think more positive, trying to stay happy and trying to figure out how to make it all habit. I’m here to tell you….it’s possible. Thinking and being happy, positive and full of love has transformed my life…..for the better. Do it now…start today…and I promise you’ll look back at where you once were and be in awe of how far you’ve come and grown.)
I guess this post is to let you know that you have many, many, many unwritten pages in your book…..you’re the author of your book. You get to pick how you fill those pages…..it’s all up to you. (How cool is that?). Stay in the present moment and enjoy it. Don’t live in the past…that creates fear. Don’t live in the future…that creates anxiety. LIVE in the present moment, enjoy it and that will BRING YOU PEACE. We are all powerful manifestors….we create our life with our thoughts and intentions. The choices are all in your hands…….so remember, you have the choices to create a life filled with complete happiness, positivity and love. (choose wisely 🙂 )
Hope you have an awesome day. As always, thank you for stopping by to read my blog.
