Day 432 - Positive Energy
Friday, February 05, 2016
Make sure your thoughts are positive and powerful.
Ever since I started on my journey of healing after my accident, I realized how important our thoughts are to how we feel, how we act, and how we behave. If you see life as a constant struggle, always challenging, and difficult, then that's what your life will be. If you see your life as a source of joy, an opportunity to help someone else, a source of pride and love, then your life will be filled with wonder.
I remember last year when this job opportunity first came to me. Every time I passed the intersection where the college was, I would think to myself that the job was mine, that I was going to be offered the position. It was so real in my heart that I couldn't think of any other alternative. On top of that, I saw in my mind a job that was perfect for my skills. I knew that I would fit in perfectly with the team from day one.
You know what? All those dreams became my reality. And the job turned out to be even better than even I could imagine! Every day is awesome, and I go into work each day feeling energized and enthusiastic. Even a day like today, when I had meetings from 7am until noon, and then an endless parade of people walking through my door with issues and questions and frustrations, I still felt like I had a mission, a drive to make a difference for the campus and our faculty and staff.
Every day I try to focus my energy in a positive direction. It's how I approach eating, tracking, exercise, and relationships. I hope you'll give it a try. It certainly can't hurt! Give yourself some space to be awesome! Believe in yourself. Keep your thoughts positive, and harness their power.
