Hello my friend! I hope that you are off to a good start this week, speaking kindly to yourself and validating your feelings and efforts.

Just wanted to reiterate something we discussed back in Step 1 of the 7 Steps to Family Wellness Seminar which was, Take Charge of Thoughts & Vision.

But first a quote:

“Right now, in this moment, without moving from where you are, you can find ample evidence to prove your life is a miserable, depressing, terrible burden, or you can find evidence to prove your life is an abundant, joyful, exciting adventure.”
John-Roger & Peter McWilliams, You Can’t Afford The Luxury of a Negative Thought

Inspiring and true isn’t it? Not sure? Ok, how about a little meditation?

{This whole exercise will only take about 60 second, two questions, 30 seconds each.}
Please read each sentence, close your eyes and answer carefully in your mind.

If I shift my mental focus to look for them, what are the beautiful gifts in my life right now?

Close your eyes and think clearly about the answer.

{30 seconds is a long time to stay focused isn’t it?}

Now, when you are finished answering that question, please take 30 more seconds, eyes closed, to answer this one:

What percentage of my time am I focused on seeing and appreciating the positives in my life?

Close your eyes and let the answer come.

Any revelations?

Now, what will you do with these insights? {I hope you will quickly write them down and post them where they will keep inspiring you!}

Now a few challenging thought questions:

How can you alter your environment so that it will remind you to keep your focus where you want it to be? Sticky notes? Reminder on your phone? Daily gratitude journal? An accountability buddy? Put your thought training bracelets back on?

And lastly, what will you do each time the habitual negatives creep in?

Well, this is where we Lionesses get fierce! We knock the negatives out! We don’t invite them in! In fact, we disarm them by calling them out and exposing them as the deceptions they are!

Going with the flow on this point doesn’t work. We will de-volve if we stop trying! We must practice keeping mental boundaries that will aid us in moving forward to becoming the force we were born to be!

Much love to you today my friend.

P.S. Life is beautiful. Peace is available. Support is ever around you. You are loved. That is the truth. Life is also challenging and trying, but that is on purpose and by design and even that truth can turn out to be beautiful too when our hearts are humble and teachable.

P.P.S. I would love to have you join us in the next seminar group! You won’t regret it if you do! I have gift certificates for your husband to purchase. “Oh Santa…!”
