Sometimes it seems like nothing works the way it “should.” If you’re human, at one time in your life you have probably hit that point where work was no fun, a relationship was a struggle, or you didn’t even feel comfortable in your body.
At times like these, changing your life can seem overwhelming if not impossible. There’s so much to do…where do you even start?
It’s quite simple, really…just change ONE thing.
Before we talk more about changing just ONE thing, let’s enjoy A Powerful Pause relating to “should.” Life is so profound and brilliantly designed, by you and for you, for your highest good and for the highest good of all. Anytime you “should” on yourself is a perfect time for realizing that you most likely are in resistance to what is and leaking energy…no wonder things seems so hard. Simply, take a breath, observe what you think “should” be; look at what is, still as the observer – don’t make it personal – then ask if there is anything for you do now?
Wait. If the answer is no, then move on. Let go of your resistance and accept what is. If you receive helpful action steps that you can do, then take action. This is how you move through life with ease and grace. Fun – right!
Now, back to…just change ONE thing.
- Eliminate one unhealthy food from your diet.
- Do an unselfish act of kindness for a loved one with no expectation of anything in return.
- Find three things about your job you can be grateful for.
- Find three things about your relationship you can be grateful for.
- Take a different route to work.
Any simple change has the potential to drastically change your perspective and transform your life.
It’s like a ship at sea…if it changes course even one degree, 100 miles later it’s in completely new waters.
Too many people leak so much energy trying to control and manipulate things, other people and circumstances on the outside only to end up frustrated and exhausted.
Of course, the most profound shifts are the ones you make on the inside. Annoyance can easily be turned into fascination. Frustration can be flipped to become gratitude. Even anger can be transformed if you simply turn it into a song.
You don’t have to tackle the whole kit and caboodle, just make one simple shift.
And the best part is…its all experimentation. Live your life in a playful state of being and experiencing all that life has to offer. If you don’t like your new perspective, you can always go back to your old one or even create a different, new one.
What “one-degree” shift can YOU make TODAY?
Blessings and abound in grace,
