what you focus on determines how you feel. Choose to foucs on things that make you feel goo. 
This week, we are discussing:

Shift your focus...

Sounds easy right?

Like 'choose'day news - shift focus on Facebook

a couple of sentences or a few minutes can ruin your whole day... or make it better.

Recently I had a conversaton with someone and a couple of things were said that were confusing to me and somewhat hurtful. Over the next few hours I replayed that part of that conversation about a thousand times. It didn't help me to do that. I fretted over what it meant, what I could have said and how it made me feel. The funny thing is, I am a coach, I coach people about taking responsibility for their lives, owning their own stuff and letting other own theirs. And yet, two sentences held me captive in that moment in time at least for a little while. 

There were lots of great things happening around me and I was focussing on what was already in the past. It should be easy to say ' I live in a great country, I have great friends, I enjoy good health, I am able to work and earn a good income and am surrounded by blessings. ' It should be. But sometimes it is not.  Sometimes we get stuck in a place. The thing is when we know that we have a choice in how we think and what we focus on, sometimes we still make the choice to ruminate over things that are not that positive. 

I would say, recognise that is what you are doing and then let it go. Don't give yourself a hard time about it. You are already in a negative space. Give yourself a pat on the back for recognising your thought patterns and then move on. As soon as you recognise what you are doing, you will also recognise you cannot go back and have that conversation again. This point of acceptance is a great learning point. Don't let a couple of sentences or a few minutes in a negative space ruin your whole day. Then again, when great things happen, replay them.

That's a challenge I know you are up for :-)


till next time...
