When things go wrong, don’t go with them
We attract or create what we think about most. Right? Not some of the time, but most of the time. This is a good theory to have in my heart and my head. This week has been a bit of a bummer and it makes me forget my theory.
Right now, I was supposed to be on a plane to a very sunny location on this vast planet. Instead, I am sitting here in my kitchen. I could complain and begin to point fingers and feel sorry for myself, but I won't. I'm going to focus on the good and look to what I will be doing this weekend instead of thinking about what I would have been doing. You know, the more I complain about what’s wrong in my life, the more I will experience what’s wrong. That is the law of attraction, eh? I'm letting it go so I can remain positive.
The reason I am not on a airplane to a very sunny location is there has been a death in our extended family. I could have simply hopped on that plane and flown away from the entire situation because frankly, death and me are not friends. Not that everyone enjoys wakes and funerals. But for me, wakes and funerals actually cause me huge attacks of panic, migraines and nausea. I have not slept in two days thinking about this wake and how am I possibly going to get through the door.
I'm trying to stay focused on the positive and not get myself in a funk. I have to remember to be thankful. I'm going to be grateful for what is happening to me, whether it is good or bad AND I'm thankful for the people I have in my life. I'm going to be so busy focusing on my gratitude that I won't have any time left for stress, worry and negativity.
