Each and every day offers up the potential for so many opportunities. Each day is new. It is like pushing a reset button, and each day is another chance to do things that will help us fulfill our goals, hit our targets, and expand into personal growth, or regress and become a lesser version of ourselves.
I believe that all of the horrific things each of us goes through, sooner or later in this life, end up being for our good in some way. Each of us is experiencing a unique life experience, learning important, helpful, new things, and being reminded of things we have already learned but maybe stopped focusing on.
EVERYTHING is feedback. EVERYTHING is information, telling us what we need to know and do differently to constantly upgrade our life experience.
I used to say, “There is a reason for everything that happens.” That would help me to look for the reason or purpose behind each moment of the day and each event that would happen throughout the day.
Now, I like to say, “There is purpose in everything.”
I like to believe there is. I prefer to believe that the Universe was designed from the beginning to conspire on our behalf. I like to ask, throughout each day and especially during difficult times, “What is the possible purpose behind this happening? What good could come from this? What benefit will be produced by me going through this right now?” It has been through asking questions like these that I am able to refocus on gratitude and abundance, instead of bitterness, lack, resentment, anger, hatred, and fear.
What we do think and speak, our subconscious BELIEVES-NO MATTER WHAT we tell it. Why not tell it ONLY things that will be HELPFUL, BENEFICIAL, HEALING, and EMPOWERING? The RAS (Reticular Activating System) CONSTANTLY and ONLY seeks out ALL places, people, things, circumstances, and situations available each second (that is 40 BILLION bits of information per second with our 5 human senses) to PROVE to our consciousness what we are telling it. THAT WHICH WE CHOOSE TO BELIEVE WILL BE MADE TRUE BY THE RAS AND BIAS CONFIRMATION.
EVERY THOUGHT AND EVERY WORD IS A CREATION.
That which we focus on tends to repeat itself in our lives. That which we focus on grows, exponentially. That which we focus on, WE FEED.
Today’s challenge for myself: Today I will look for the purpose or the lesson in the things that are happening to me, and retell my story in a more useful and empowering way, reframing it to how they are happening FOR me. No matter what happens, I will try to see anything I cannot control as an eventual blessing, and I will try to believe that it is meant to be, as it is, in this moment.

It is through adding value to others by sharing and spreading wisdom, that we become more valuable as individuals, and collectively, as a whole, we all become wiser.
Remember: Mindset matters. Character counts. That which we choose to consistently focus on is what EXPANDS in our lives. WE CREATE our personal realities.
