We all know how easy it is to stay mired in the problems of life. Some of them are the result of our own choices, but many are through no error on our part. They can still hurt all the same, however. When our bodies are clouded with unwholesome (but often lower-priced) foods, health issues, financial shifts, relationship challenges and career and our stress levels bursting through the roof, people often look for release in ways that only offer a momentary distraction, not a true release (or solution). We need to find ways to be able to move through the storms of life while staying as grounded as possible.
Do you believe that “life” is your friend or enemy?
Sometimes, we may just make it through by the skin of our teeth, but we have to remember that we made it! Having a ritual or spiritual guidance to carry us through these times may be the difference between making it to the other side or perishing. “Success” and “Failure” are not guaranteed either way.
From Louise Hay:
What are you grateful for? How do you begin your day? What is the first thing you say in the morning?
Is it positive or negative? I spend about 10 minutes being thankful for all of the good in my life.
List at least 10 things in your life that you are grateful for.
You may take a month to write this list. Don’t worry–there is no time limit. You may always add to the list.
Close your eyes and really think before you write.
