Many of us are struggling with life issues: Health, setting goals, personal relationships, feeling fulfilled as a human being. What has helped me each day is to rethink how I think about those things in my life.
What I’ve recognized is that to feel fulfilled in my own life, I’m the one that decides what has to happen first. In other words if I am the one that decides whether to be happy each day then I need to be happy – just because I can control my thoughts and feelings – it’s up to me.
The same goes with health, setting goals in your life and yes actually figuring out how to support your family. I struggled for years as a single parent raising my children (and I had severe health issues from time to time). What I realize now is that I accidentally made life much harder on myself by worrying, adding unnecessary stress to the various situations that occurred and whether you believe me or not, how you think about where you are right now in your life determines how it will continue to go. When you take positive control over your own internal thoughts & negative emotions an amazingly change will take place.
At least the view from my eyes indicates this to be true. But you decide. As I said it’s up to each of us.
My personal daily mantra:
“Today I will unemotionally review my life, my values and my true needs and then make intentional decisions, bringing about a positive change and an immediate improvement to my attitude and total well-being … after all I am in charge of me.” ~ Plh
