Second Thoughts? Think Again!
Life is perfect. If you have read these articles long enough,
you have seen this written in several different forms and ways.
There is even a series on it in one of my ebooks. Life is
perfect is a way of living for me. If I understand that I have
the ability to create my life by the actions I take, then I
understand that both the life I live today and the life I will
live tomorrow is perfect in that sense.
Except when it is not.
Last week we had the flu bug. (Actually, the little sucker is
still hanging around!) Our five year old was having such a hard
time getting a breath that it hurt just to watch him. I have
been able to lay in bed and on the couch for a couple or three
days. Did the actions I take create this in my life?
When you are not feeling your best, and things seem to get out
of control (as they sometimes do), then one begins to question
the strength of their beliefs.
Am I on the correct path? There are so many from which to
choose! Will I really be able to reach my current goals? Why
does it sometimes seem so difficult? Do I really need to write
another article? Who is even reading them?
This is the place where I used to buckle up and get to work. I
would remind myself that thoughts like these are my fears
surfacing, and I must squash them before they can do me harm.
Now, however, I think a little differently.
I am not afraid of my fears, and I do not treat them badly. I
accept them, let them surface and look at them very carefully.
Is there anything here I need to consider that I might be
avoiding, or hiding from? Am I doing what I want to be doing
according to my defined values and my definitions of success?
I can also go back and review where I have come from, and where
I appear to be heading. Am I pleased with the results? Am I
excited about the future? Am I excited about today?
So, with all of that said - now what?
I am going to take a bit of time, stand back and review. I will
look back on what had been accomplished, congratulate myself,
and be grateful for the help I have had. I will look ahead and
reevaluate my plans, and ensure that they are still right for
me. I will take a deep breath and commit to the principles of
values and my definitions of success to be absolutely sure I am
doing everything in my power so I have a... you guessed it...
