Do your part…

Do your part…


She felt like doing her part to change the

world, so she started by giving thanks for all the blessings in her life, rather than

bemoaning all that was missing from it.

Then she complimented her reflection in the mirror,

instead of criticizing it as she usually did.

Next she walked into her neighborhood and offered her smile to everyone she passed,

whether or not they offered theirs to her.

Each day she did these things, and soon they became a habit.  Each day she lived with more gratitude, more acceptance, more kindness.

And sure enough, the world around her began to change.  Because she had decided so, she was single-handedly doing her part to change it.

Sometimes we are just not where we want to be in life or not where we think we should be. Whether it is because of our age, or our advanced education, or station in life, it becomes easier to complain about all the things that are going wrong instead of what is going right.

And honestly, if that is what you are doing, you will keep getting more to complain about.

If you realize that you are a complainer – you can change yourself. In fact, you have to change what you are thinking about and speaking about in order to change the outcomes you are experiencing.

We are trained from a young age to seek out people who resonate with us.  Some one who understands us and what we are going through.  A soul mate – or a life partner. And while it is good to have people who seemingly understand you, if you are determined to live a life of complaint, you will keep getting more to complain about.

Things will never get better until you can be thankful and grateful for what you have right now,

changing your perspective to that of appreciation.  There is always something to  appreciate.

 

If you are breathing (and I assume you are) you can start there.  Many have difficulty even breathing.

What else can you appreciate?

Do you have:

  • children
  • clothes to wear
  • food
  • something to eat with
  • something to drink
  • a car to drive
  • a drivers license
  • friends
  • a house to live in
  • shoes
  • a phone
  • a computer
  • pets
  • television
  • music
  • a bed
  • blankets
  • etc.

If you start being thankful and grateful for what you have, more will come.  It may take a while to change your habits to positive ones, but if you really do want a better outcome in life, you have to put the effort into having an attitude of appreciation instead of complaint.

There is no way around it.

You get what you think about in life.

 

So if you want to do your part in changing the world,

start with a smile and see where that SMILE

can take you…
