Thoughts to end the Work Week

I always enjoy reading my mindful day book, before heading off to work. I thought this message was perfect for these times. It is easy to get caught up in the negativity storm out there. Just remember there is beauty out there. There are things to be positive about. Things may look grim now, but we can get through this with a calm and positive mind. It is easy to be filled with hate and anger, but change can only happen from a peaceful, calm and positive heart and mind. I know this is hard to practice, but try not to look into the worries of tomorrow. Try not to dwell on the sorrows of yesterday. Look into the wonders of today. You can only change what happens in the moment. The moment is your chance to grow, learn, challenge oneself, evolve, make change etc,. Struggles are lessons to overcome. Try to live each day as happily as one can. See the good, see the possibility, see the positivity. I know for some it is hard, I get it, I empathize. Just remember a negative mind and soul does nothing for your peace of mind and well-being. I wrote a bit more than I thought I would. I hope you all have a lovely weekend. Try to do something that invokes peace and happiness within yourself.

Food for Thought Post

It is nice waking up to some inspirational reading, and giving myself time to reflect and think. I really enjoyed this post in my Mindful Morning Book. It is nice to give your mind time to reflect, relax, and think in the morning, instead of filling it with noise and distractions. It gives you a chance to focus on you, and not everyone else. It can start your day off on the right foot.

This post is a reminder to look at the reality of a situation, rather than the illusion of negativity. People tend to see things in a negative way, but there is also a positive spin, and then there is the truth. Lets try to focus on either the positive side, or the reality. The negativity will get you nowhere. It will lead to misery. Push away negative self-talk, and focus on the reality. Peace of mind will cultivate.

Have a lovely day, or evening everyone.

Start Your Day With A Blank Slate

I always think how you start your day is important. Now what do I mean by this title? It means having no expectations for the day, good, or bad. You think, how can I have no expectations? It can be difficult, but awareness of expectations can be helpful.

Expectations can lead to negativity. Whether you are expecting it to be a bad day, or a good day. Now expecting it to be a bad day is an obvious one. Thinking it will be a bad day will have your mind set on negativity. Your mind will seek out negativity. Anything that goes wrong will amplify, because your thoughts are negative. If you think it will be a bad day, than you will see the world in a negative light. It is the laws of attraction. A self-fulfilling prophecy.

Now expecting a good day may seem like a good idea, but that can also lead to negativity. So why is that? If you are expecting a good day, and a problem, or mishap occurs. It can be really upsetting, and completely ruin your day. It can put you in a state of negativity, because you were expecting a smooth, challenge free day, but what you have seen from my blog posts, life doesn’t happen that way. Life is unexpected.

This is why expectations can be problematic. You can hope for a good day. You can hope for things to go smooth. You can be aware that today may go either way, but you will get through it no matter what. Start your day clear of expectations, and go with the flow can be the most peaceful way to get through your day.

Do Things You Enjoy

This post was inspired by a spontaneous walk/day in the park I decided to do on this beautiful day. I had the day off for an interview, which can be pretty stressful for me. I decided afterwards to go to the park to relax my mind, and enjoy the rest of my day. It was a nice way to calm my mind, and not think of the interview too much.

I was able to take a two hour walk, and then just sit with my blanket, while listening to music, viewing the scenery, working on some writing, and doing some word searches. It was a really nice time to just sit, relax, hear the sounds of birds, and the wind, smell the fresh air. It just made me realize how little things like these bring joy to my life. It doesn’t have to be too extravagant. Little things like this spark joy.

Even though the morning was stressful. I was able to relax, and enjoy the rest of my day. Life can be a struggle, and stressful, but making time to do the things you enjoy makes a difference. Always try to find joy in life. The little things do count. It is something we all need for our well-being, happiness, and peace of mind.  There is joy in life. You just got to find it.

These are pictures from of the view, while sitting. I go here a lot, but there is always new experiences every time I go. I hope you all have a wonderful day, or night. Try to find some joy, and enjoyable things to do.
