Letting Go (When things don’t go your way)

The worst thing we can do when seeking happiness is more of what we were doing that brought us unhappiness.

LOL. DUH.

Look at the picture, feeeeel the good feeling, Try to feeeeel that good feeeeeling as much as possible. Make that good feeeeeeling you’re priority.

Letting go doesn’t mean we don’t care. Letting go doesn’t mean we shut down. Letting go means we stop trying to force outcomes and make things happen our way. It means we give up resistance to the way things are, for the moment. It means we stop trying to do the impossible–controlling that which we cannot–and instead, focus on what is possible–which usually means taking care of ourselves. And we do this in gentleness, kindness, and love, as much as possible.

Allowing for things to happen how they are supposed to, is a much faster way to beauty, enlightenment, and truly getting what you need. Trust me. When you’re looking for miracles, “What is next is what you least expect”. Miracles can only happen when you let go. If we stare at an atom, it literally stops. When you let go and don’t look, it flows freely and in unison with your desires. Desire attracts. It is “The Law of Attraction”. If you remain in a state of healthy uncomfortability, a little bit hungry, a little bit cold, a little bit unsure, accompanied by hope, and memories or thoughts or belief that what is happening is for the betterment of you, whether you can see it right now or not, abracadabra. More often than not, inconveniences, no’s, redirection, and things not going as planned, are in disguise. So what may seam like an inconvenience, often is not. You may not be able to see it right away, but if you wonder, it will eventually be revealed, and far more powerful than you could ever have imagined.

If you want others to support your happiness, then you support your happiness! It’s that easy. So easy, we forget. 🙂

Break a Bad Habit

Steps to break a bad habit:

  1. Assume there’s a good reason for it to exist in the first place and find out what it is. The reasons will include long-standing perceptions and beliefs that have made that habit a good idea. Time for a new idea. Think a better thought.
  2. Examine the mechanics of the habit. What are the actions, step-by-step, that add up to the unproductive behavior?
  3. Completely illuminate the cost of the habit. How much time do you lose to feelings that don’t serve your happiness? The short- term effects are a loss of power and an emotional response of rage or fury. And the long-term effects are health, time and money, relationships with others and losing out on all of the opportunities that do surround you, that you can’t see, because you are stuck on what isn’t helping you out at all.
  4. Create a new commitment. Bad habits aren’t actually broken-they are replaced. Since each habit is actually a day-by-day expression of an ongoing belief and commitment, the trick is replacing an old belief and an outdated commitment with one that is new and empowering. This actually takes all the struggle and effort out of “breaking a bad habit.” The new commitment naturally finds ways to be expressed without a lot of struggle.
  5. Find like-minded people who share your new commitment. This step isn’t necessary but it’s helpful and makes creating a new, good habit a lot more fun.
  6. The first three days of anything are the hardest. Dopamine has been stored in the other habit, no matter what the habit is. It takes a while to start building the dopamine with the new habit. Know that old feeling or way, is sooooo comfortable, but remember it’s heroine. It will leave you alone, once you let it alone.
