Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life

Guest author: Tammy Matthews

The real secret is that whether you feel sad, broke, lonely, overweight, depressed, overwhelmed or hopeless, you have the power within yourself to change the way you look at life and ultimately the power to change your life.

Oftentimes we spend too much time thinking about the negative parts of our life. But what we don’t realize is that by keeping ourselves in that state of mind we are sabotaging our happiness, our future, our daily lives.

Another important point is that no one other person can make us happy.  Although being around or with someone may make you feel happy, they don’t create the happiness in your heart. They don’t decide whether you feel like being happy or whether you feel like being upset or depressed.

The truth is that by changing the way you think about things you change your life.

You might be behind on your bills and sit around worrying about it or you can take a good hard look around at what you have to be thankful for. The bills haven’t gone away; you’ve just decided to change your state of mind to focus on the good in life.

You might be struggling to lose weight and sit around looking in the mirror complaining about the way you look. Or you can take a look deep within yourself and think about all the things you’re good at and all the things you have to offer. The weight is still there, but instead of focusing on a few pounds, that don’t make you who you are, you choose to focus on the great person that you are and the many things you have to offer others.

You might have lost your job and be sitting around blaming your boss for firing you. Or you can think about what you want your life to look like from this point forward. Maybe there’s a career change in your future. Maybe you’ve had a dream of working with young children or people with disabilities or becoming the manager or a retail store. This job loss is your opportunity to take a hold of your life and go after your dreams.

Once you take a look around you’ll see that it’s up to you to decide to change your state of mind. You can decide that you want to feel hurt, broke, overweight or depressed. Or you can decide that you want to feel alive, blessed, beautiful and happy. The choice is yours!

Simply by changing the way you think about any given situation you change your life. Happiness is a decision that you make. It comes from within you. It is up to you and only you to make that decision and to live life to the fullest.

Make a choice today to be happy. Look around you and discover what you truly have that you are blessed with. Chances are you have a lot to be thankful for. Allow the happiness to flow into your body and to attract more happiness back to you.
