React or Respond?

20160520_100546

I have heard that what we focus on actually grows, and when it does, we shouldn’t be surprised at the harvest we get.

Look at your life now. It’s a culmination of every belief, and choice that you have made because of those beliefs… Sobering right?

We can look at any aspect of our life and see the “results” of our beliefs..

I have been working on controlling my emotions rather that letting them dictate my actions, I have to admit, according to  my present situation, it’s a result of living according to my emotions.

I have avoided doing the things that I said I would do by making excuses based on how i feel at the moment, ” I don;t feel like it” I’m tired” …..  it’s like saying “The dog ate my homework.”

I don’t know about you, but when I stick to my word and do what I said I was going to do, I always feel confident..

This is key to everything..

How then should I respond to the fact that I can control my emotions?

Something happened the other day. I had to a “talk” myself out of a very negative reaction.

I could literally feel every cell getting riled up.. I decided that I was going to control this emotion. Not react, wait and  consider the truth of the voice I was hearing..

We all have two voices speaking in our mind  we get to choose which on we will listen to.

In the past, I would have reacted but this time I waited, and quietly considered.

I choose to think well of the dear ones in my life instead of looking for the negatives and judging .. I choose to understand first.

I ruled over my negative emotions. What a feeling!!

To respond with understanding instead of reacting according to my negative emotions.

What are you working on this week? Pick one thing to improve on and watch your world change.

 

Have a wonderful, week
