At some point in our lives, we are inevitably met with some form of negative energy whether it be someone’s opinion or a situation. When faced with said negative energy, it is solely up to us how we respond and the impact we allow it to have on our lives. Will you let negative energy weigh you down and second guess yourself or will you let it fuel your fire and use it as a step on your ladder to greatness? Life is way too short and there is too much to do than to sit around and nurture negative thoughts.
People will always find something to criticize about and when they do, brush it off. Do not NURTURE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS for this can be your ultimate downfall. Do not allow someone else’s negativity to live in your mental space. If there are people in your life that have hurt you, deal with the hurt and let it go. Harboring hurt in your heart does nothing but take up space where love could be and will hinder your happiness.
We all are guilty of keeping anger and frustration bundled up inside at some time or another. Because of so much pent up negative energy, we come across as bitter and angry. The mouth speaks what the heart is full of! The time is now to let go all the negativity and think and live positively. Happiness is yours all you have to do is claim it; here’s how!
“Let Go and Let God” Box
I got this idea from a workshop led by Koereyelle some time ago and it has stuck with me every since. The idea is to have a sealed box in your home that whenever there is an issue or negative thoughts arise, you write them on a piece of paper and put them inside the box. Once the issue is on the paper and placed in the box you can longer worry about it. You have given it to God and as we all know, there isn’t a problem or situation too hard for him.
Meditating is a good way to relax your mind, body, and spirit. There are tons of free and paid guided meditation resources online. One of my favorite people to listen to for mediation is Deepak Chopra.
Think about all the things in your life that are right and focus your energy there! Your situation could maybe better but it could also be worse. Be appreciative for the things you do have.
If you don’t want to talk to a person about what’s going on, you can always pour your heart out to a journal. Journaling is a great way to vent and relieve stress. After you’ve released that negative energy to your journal follow it up by making of list of the things you’re thankful for.
Dance, Exercise, whatever you need to do to clear your mind…do it!
As said by the late and great Farrah Fawcett, “Positivity is a Necessity.” You will only be as happy as you choose to be. Never give a person or situation power over your life or space in your mind.
