Thanks Giving

Thanksgiving has come and gone again. We all have left overs in the fridge and our lives have continued. After the left overs our gone we don’t even think about the day until the following year. This is sad to think about. 

Thanksgiving is a day we get together with friends and family alike to “Give Thanks” for everything in our lives. We have dedicated one day of the year to be grateful for everything we have. Why is it that we only do this for one day? We should give thanks for everything we have in this life alot more often. Realize what you have and give thanks. Bring positivity into your life. Try arranging a Thanksgiving type meal more then once a year. Invite your friends, invite your family, and invite anyone close to you to get together and enjoy a meal. Granted it does not have to be a huge turkey dinner every time but prepare the meal together. The comradery that comes from working together and then enjoying the spoils is priceless. Bring everyone together and bring more happiness into your life. 

It’s Easy

Anything you want to do is easy. If you want to change, if you want to make money, if you want a better job and anything you can think of is quite easy to obtain. Then why don’t you have absolutely everything you want in your life, because anything easy to do is also easy not to do. 

The only reason we don’t have all the things we want is because it is easier to do something else. Human nature is to take the easiest path possible. We know that we should exercise but it is easier to turn on Netflix and relax. We always choose the easiest path. We all want to be happy and enjoy our life but it’s just so much easier to complain about it rather then change it. 

The key to this is realizing what we are doing. Realize that the easiest way to do things isn’t always what is best. Think about what you are doing and how it will affect you in the long run. You have to make conscious and deliberate decisions throughout your day. What do you want and how are you going to get there. These things need to aid your daily decisions. It really is that easy. 

Talent

Most of us have things that we are just good at. Something that we have an innate aptitude for. This may be a physical or mental skill. We have all heard someone say,”That person has a god given talent.” In other words that person is good without ever practicing. Talent is great but it has the drawback of being taken for granted. If you are good at s9mething and you never put the work in to be good at it you will not appreciate it. Most of us have these talents and we do nothing to appreciate them. Talents go to waste. 

Schools teach us to be well rounded and to know a little about everything. By all means we should know a little of everything but dont neglect your talent. Learn as much as you can and make sure to spend time cultivating your talent. If you are a good artist then you should draw, if you’re good at basketball then play basketball, whatever you have a talent for then that is what you should do. 

You are most happy when you are doing well at something, so why wouldn’t you do it more often. Figure out what you are good at and spend time being happy. 

Change

Are you happy in your life? Are you happy with the amount of money you make? Are you happy at your job? Are you happy with the car you drive? Are you happy with the area you live in? These are the only a few questions we have about our own life. The thing that they all have in common is the solution. Change. 

If you are unhappy about the answer to any of those questions the answer is simple, change.  Einstein said that ,”Insanity is doing the same thing over again and expecting different outcomes.” If you are unhappy quite doing the same thing over again. It’s time for change. 

Get a new job. Save money for a new car. Look for a new place to live. Go back to school and build your education so you can make more money. Everything you need to do means you have yo change. Change takes time and you have to put the time in to achieve it. Think about what you want. Make the necessary changes in you life and then be happy. Be happy with your car, your job, the amount of money you make. You deserve to be happy and if you are not, it is time to change. 

Law of Attraction

This world is governed by laws. There is a law for everything we know and everything we do. We grow up and our parents are the first people to tell us what we can and cannot do. As we start getting older and attend school we start to learn other laws. We learn about laws that the government have imposed for the safety of the community and ourselves. Mathematics have there own set of laws. Then there is the law of attraction. 

The law of attraction states that you attracted the same things that you put out. The main difference to this is that you actually get more of the same that you put out. When you are out and about try to frown. Do not smile at anyone and see what happens. Everyone you encounter will scowl back at you or just look at you with confusion or empathy. These people do not know you, do not know anything about you but instinctually return the emotions that you are putting out. 

This time go out and smile. Smile at everyone you see and watch the immense difference. People will now greet you with excitement and happiness. Just as the law of attraction states you will get more then you put out. Strangers will see you as being more approachable and will see you as someone they want to be around. 

Be happy. Smile. Even if you are having a bad day do whatever you can put a smile on your face. Surround yourself with other happy people and it will be contagious. You can have a bad day and still be happy. 

Dreaming and Complaining

A great nights sleep with lots of dreams is a wonderful thing. If you are lucky enough is remember your dreams you have a small insight into your subconscience. Your dreams are an extension of your conscious mind. You wake up and feel great, remembering all that your dream had to show you. These glimpses you have are showing you your true potential. Dreams show you what you can achieve and all that you can become. 

We wake up and begin our day and we forget our dreams ever so quickly. We clomp about our day and encounter different things. This is when we start to complain. Sometimes we complain out loud and sometimes we keep it inside. We bury our complaints and pretend they are not there or we find those like minded and let our complaints be heard. 

Amazingly enough dreaming and complaing are extremely similar. They both lead to nothing, achieve nothing, and will soon fade away into your mind. Don’t be this type of person. Rather then complain or to let your dreams fade away, do something. 

Your complaints will disappear when you start doing something about them. Complain, figure out how to fix it, and then work to remedy this problem. Sounds easy but this takes time and work. It takes you doing something about it. Work on the things you don’t  like in you life and soon you will have nothing to complain about. 

Dreams only fade when you wake up because you choose to do nothing. Just like fixing complaints in your life, it takes work. Remember you dreams and work to achieve them. If you dream about a better  job, then start looking. If you dream about a partner then start dating. Whatever your dream is it will take work to accomplish. 

Complaining and dreaming are completely different actions. Yet they are quite similar and will be achieved in the same way. Once started your life will begin changing in ways that you will not be able to explain. Your complaints will fade and your dreams will become a reality. 

Meditation

Simply described is thinking or focusing deeply. Most people do not meditate or meditate is very small burst. We have all been studying for school or at work and we tell ourselves, “Come on, we need to focus.” This is usually due to our scattered mind wandering while we are set at a singular task. This lack of focus, on whatever we are doing, causes self doubt and most of the time negative self talk. 

Everyday we should set time aside alone to just reflect on our day. Disregard all the issues that are happening, all the things we need to get done, and just silence our thougbts. Moat of us cannit compketely silence our thoughts so we should at least focus them. 

Sit alone and slow your breath. Focus on your breathing. In through your nose and out through your mouth. Do this slowly and calmly. Try to not think about anything that is going on currently or anything that will have to be done once you finish. Listen to your breath, feel your heart beat slow as you relax. Continue this for as long as it takes for you to remember that you were trying to forget everything.  Sounds odd, I know. Once you have forgotten that you were trying to forget things you have completed your meditation. 

Some people continue with their meditation beyond this point because they start to enjoy this clarity. It is a cleansing of the thoughts. You know longer have “a thousands” things on your mind. You have , in essence, reset your brain. Once you stop meditating you will be able to focus on the task at hand better. You mind will have a single goal and be able yo perform at it peak potential. 

As you get better at .meditating you will be able to achieve this clarity at a faster and more efficient pace. At first thing could take you 30 minutes or more, to achieve this clarity. No doubt that with practice you will be able to obtain this type of focus in a matter of a few minutes. You will be able to stop whatever you are doing, take a few breathes and refocus on whatever you are doing. A clarity of thought will allow you to be in the moment and really focus on being happy.
