Your plans work out sometimes … and sometimes they don’t. The ability to go with the flow and make adjustments in your mental picture – while remaining grateful is a critical component of getting great results and having fun along the way.
Michelle shares some of her experiences having life not go as planned – and how to make the best of any situation.
Going with the flow and being grateful for any and all situations can be easy to get theoretically… KNOWING that what you need is what is showing up in your life and living from that awareness is more challenging – and more rewarding.
Here are two practical ways that you can shift any situation from the stress of your plans not happening as you pictured to something you are truly grateful for:
1. Write down at least three reasons why the situation you are in is a good thing. Why is it good for you? For others? For the world in general? Actually write them down … my experience is that writing down is much more real and powerful than only thinking about them.
2. Take time to breath. Five or more conscious breaths will calm the mind. Oxygenate the body and reduce stress inside and out. Stressful thoughts manifest in the body very quickly. By breathing the mind and the body get a break … space is created and gratitude can fill that space.
Have a terrific week. I’m excited for all of your plans to work out just as planned! And i’m equally excited for them not to!!be free! eric
