Day 30 Intentional Living: Focus On What You Want

Focus On What You Want

It is easy for things to spiral out of control if you focus on what you don’t want.  Instead, you must focus on what you do want.  When you are having one of those days, you know the ones where it seems like everything is going wrong, you have to do something to change your state and focus.  What works for me is to do a gratitude rampage.  What does this mean?  Well, I either grab my journal or go on a walk, and I start listing everything in and about my life for which I am grateful.  I start at the tip of my toes and go to the tip of my head and everything in between.  I say thank you, thank you, thank you.  The reason this helps is that it changes your focus to things that are positive instead of upstream or negative.

Momentum

Our thoughts gain momentum.  If we are thinking thoughts that do not serve us and that assist us in feeling bad, they will gain momentum, and more of those kinds of views will come.  Likewise, when we are in a state of gratitude and joy, our thoughts will be positive and useful.  There is no doubt which of these thought processes are more likely to help us to create a life that we love.  Choose easy.  Choose flow.  Choose joy.  Choose downstream.
