start today – Ending the Cycle

untitled

Each day offers us an opportunity to renew our resolve to the universe that we are ready for change. One of the hardest things in life is feeling stuck in a situation that we don’t like and want to change. We may have exhausted ourselves trying to figure out how to make change, and we may even have given up. However, each day offers us an opportunity to renew our resolve and to declare to the universe that we are ready for change. We may even say out loud that we have tried and struggled and have not found a way, but that we are open to help, and that we intend to keep working to create change for ourselves. Making this declaration to the universe, and to ourselves, may be just the remedy for the stagnation we are experiencing. And, it can be done today, right now.

It is difficult to understand, even with hindsight, how the choices we have made have added up to our current situation, but it is a good idea to examine the story we tell ourselves. If we tend to regard ourselves as having failed, this will block our ability to allow ourselves to succeed. We have the power to change the story we tell ourselves by acknowledging that in the past, we did our best, and we exhibited many positive qualities, and had many fine moments on our path to the present moment. We can also recognize that we have learned from our experiences, and that this will help us with our current choices.

When we do this kind of work on how we view our past self, we make it possible for the future to be based on a positive self-assessment. This inner shift may allow us to get out of the cycle we’ve been in that’s been keeping us stuck. Now we can declare our intentions to the universe, knowing that we have done the inner work necessary to allow our lives to change. Allow today to be the day to end cycles and enter into a new way of being.

    There is a difference between "change" and "different". What we see and feel each day is different from the other day, it doesn't necessarily mean things have changed. If someone lost their job, it doesn't mean his families and friends won't love them any more. Quoting from Irene Peter "Just because everything is different doesn't mean anything has changed." It is us who deal with the different people and different situations each day, and we are not changed and we still love and hate just like others. Maybe I shouldn't say nothing has changed, our understanding and perception of life may have changed after experiencing different people & situations, but what doesn't change is who we are. We may go back to square one and we may proceed to further success, but we are still that same one with the same emotions as yesterday. Never let the differences or changes affect you negatively because it is you who handle those differences or changes, not the other way around. To me, no matter what would happen to me, good or bad, I will maintain my smiling face as much as I can. I can choose between smiling and crying to live with my life, and I have chosen to smile all the way as much as I can. Take care!

    One more thing, our lives is not just about one particular person or one particular subject. It is about ourselves. A lot of the time, it is not because that person don't care or respect you, it is us who take a bit too much serious of that person. If there is someone that you care too much but doesn't care for you the same way or same degree, that is fine because there are thousands of others who would like to care for you and love you. Life is about you get happy first and then you use your happiness to love and influence on others. Now I have realized that whatever has happened in the past is amazing to me as it made who I am today and I am happy of who I am today. I wouldn't say it can't be better but good enough. No one's life is perfect and I choose to live with that imperfection. Good night.

    Thank you for your thoughts. I really like this line you wrote, "no one's life is perfect and I choose to live with that imperfection". That's exactly what makes it perfect and I'm glad you shared. Making the choice to "smile all the way as much as I can", is what makes you and everyone around you be the better version of themselves. It's really wonderful. Thank you, again, for sharing! be Love. :)
