This is the time of the year to look inside yourself and become a little introspective. A time to think about what you are grateful for, what you have learned and perhaps something new you want add into your life. When you take the time to do this, it is a wonderful practice as it allows you to rewrite your story.
Listen to Wisdom, #Wisdom is the integration of #knowledge, experience and understanding. It is the acceptance of life’s uncertainties and the belief that it will all work out right. A wise person is optimistic and calm in the face of fear. They see the big picture, put things into perspective and understand how it all pieces together. “It is not what you look at that matters, it is what you see”. ~ Henry David Thoreau~
Be Grateful Gratitude lets us appreciate what we have and opens us up to new possibilities and thinking. #Gratitude requires humility and respect. According to research done at Baylor University gratitude can improve health, relationships, energy and you become more patient and happier. Think about starting a gratitude practice by journaling with details what you are grateful for. By noticing your gratitude it opens you to appreciate the goodness in your life. “Gratitude is the memory of the heart.” ~Jean Baptiste Massieu
Don’t Judge or make assumptions about a person or situation. Your brain very quickly and automatically judges something as good or bad. Become aware of the moment and come from a new perspective. In most cases there is always a more #positive way to look at something. “The major block to compassion is the judgement in our minds. Judgement is the mind’s primary tool of separation.” ~David R Hamilton~
Believe in yourself and know that you are worthy and capable. Build and have self #confidence in yourself by looking at what you do well and get complimented on. Look at failures as as a learning experience and gIve yourself permission to try something new. Research shows that once you believe in yourself, you actually embody it. “If you hear a voice within you say “you cannot paint,” then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” ~Vincent Van Gogh
