Changing Our Way Of Thinking Changes Everything
Saturday, May 23, 2020
We all have to do things in our life that we don't want to, and the easiest solution is to change our thinking.
We all have days when we are faced with chores, errands, or responsibilities that we just don't want to or feel like doing. It's times like these, it's easy to get into become disgruntled and stay that way even as we tackle those tasks. However, given the fact that our bad mood won't change the fact that these things have to be done, and the mood we're in will only most likely make things worse, we could also try to shift our way of thinking which in turn will change our attitude as well. Many wise people have pointed out that it is not so much what we do as it is how we do it that makes the difference.
It's important when we're facing something that's really difficult, whether it's doing taxes, paying bills, or visiting a challenging relative, that we lovingly support ourselves through the process. The more supported we feel, the easier it is to open our minds to the idea that we could change our way of viewing the situation. In truth, most of the chores we don't like doing are intimately intertwined with our blessings. When we remember this, we feel gratitude, which makes it hard to stay in a dark mood.
We can shift our attitude by considering how much we love our home as we clean it and how lucky we are to have a roof over our heads. Any task can be transformed from a burden to a necessary aspect of caring for something we love. All we have to do is shift our perspective, and our attitude follows shortly behind.
