Something that has made me proud within the last few days is my ability to alternate my focus from negative feelings to the positive. Granted this may not sound grand but for me it is. It’s a bad habit of mine to constantly ruminate on issues that I can’t seem to fix at the moment. Then I get myself worked up for no reason. Within the past few months I’ve been watching tons of personal development and self help videos which are helping me to better embrace my life for what it already is. A recurring theme that I hear in these videos is that “In order to become more blessed you’ve got to appreciate what you already have.” Some people call it an attitude of gratitude.
Regardless of what you may call it or view it as, the important piece to simply have appreciation in your heart. I know it gets rough sometimes and we can’t see pass the bullshit in front of us. However, it is important to find a way to shift your focus. Overall, I am just proud of myself for finding my own special way to set my mind on the things that I am appreciative of versus those that bring me down.
