"Your life is in your hands. No matter where you are now, no matter what has happened in your life, you can begin to consciously choose your thoughts and you can change your life. There is no such thing as a hopeless situation. Every single circumstance of your life can change".
I have an app on my phone that delivers positive messages from Rhonda's Byrne's, the Secret, each day at the same time. It's one of the ways that I remind myself to remain positive. And the timing could not have been better this morning.
adapting to the tides
I was on a downer. Having my own personal one man pity party. Even though I didn't really have a specific reason to be feeling that way. Everything was going along smoothy. Making progress, as I do ... little by little each day. Maybe that was the problem.... "little by little". Sometimes I get so frustrated at the baby steps, and just want something awesomely big to explode on to the scene. Patience has never been my strong suit.
But then... right on schedule.... at precisely 9am.... my phone made it's wonderful little noise, telling me I had a message.
And what a PERFECT message. My life IS in my hands. Who else's hands could it ever be in? God? God gave me free will. And it wouldn't exactly be free will if He then made choices on my behalf. I'm responsible! If I want the dream to come true, then it's up to me. You only have the power to change that which you take ownership of, and responsibility for. All else is victim mentally, and I have never been a big fan of that.
That doesn't mean of course, that there isn't guidance and assistance available upon request.... but there is a big difference between providing pertinent information on the subject, and making the decision for you. The end result is always up to you.
being able to stay your course
So I am going to do my best not to accept anymore invitations to pity parties (even though I am capable of hosting some really good ones).... My life... my choice... it's all in MY hands.
