Each day I learn something new. I believe my philosophical approach towards learning allows me to find blessings in the small things. This realization provides me much solace, now. This challenge once written here, took on a life of its own. My thoughts, actions, and behavior all became suspect the more I focused on actually remaining positive with everyone. It was not an easy feat. I would catch myself often becoming frustrated with people in general. Normally, my invisible rocking chair would ease such frustrations. In search of my rocking chair, my only confidant was more frustration. Then the small voice would whisper, “Positive thinking births positivity”. I am pretty sure I waved my invisible stick at the small voice. However, stopped in my tracks, I bowed to the voice.
Each time, I challenge myself; I gain a deeper understanding of who I really am. The primary reason, I weigh my words carefully comes from the understanding of their true power. Actualization happens according to the profession I speak outwardly. My words have been known to feed defeat. Conversely, they are a blueprint for victory over the obstacles in my life. In either case, they speak to a deeper truth about the Law of Attraction/Power of the Tongue.
Today, I felt condemned by my own words. My silent thoughts failed to lineup with my written words. Frustrated, slightly disgusted, and publicly exhausted I managed a small level of civility when communicating with others. I constantly reminded myself of a few simple truths. First, I am a work in process. Second, I fall short so God can rise up. Third, the greatest blessing is awareness of the first two truths.
While today was not the greatest exercise in positive thinking, it was a day of awareness. Tomorrow will be better.
