Today’s thought comes from a really special place. And it’s special because that place was once so downtrodden and bleak. Until I decided to fix myself. And while I knew what outcome I wanted, I manifested something so much greater. All by never giving up.
I learned about me. How this person came to be and how I could improve. From there I decided to say f*ck it and began to wholly abandon the skeptic which still existed in me.
I realize now that the skeptic in me was a representation of my unhappiness. And I simply had no choice but to change my thoughts. Whether the “stuff” I wanted manifested or not. I needed a better approach. Because despite having moments of happiness, I was still unhappy. And I was unhappy because my happiness was contingent on getting results from others. (Read that last sentence again.)
So that was that. I figured even if nothing of the “Law of Attraction” or any of this “manifesting” blather was true, the worst that could happen is that nothing would change. But the more I repeated something different the better I got at training my mind…and the more I actually felt better. Then reaching into that “flow” began to come easier and became more frequent. Surrender is getting easier. Life is getting easier. So while I still aspire for more, I am genuinely happy right here, right now.
Manifesting takes time. And it takes never giving up. Ever. Even if it seems to take forever. Never. (Click here for the difference between “give up” and “give over.”) Because I continue to experience happiness, no matter the circumstance. (And yes, frustrations still happen. But they don’t diminish happiness if we don’t let them.) My perspective has changed. I am actually believing now. All because I practice repeating. Which is why I am receiving.
