Momentum Monday

What does this statement mean to you? What feeling hit you when you first read it? Was it like a kick in the stomach? Did it feel like "wow, this is me. I react really well all the time no matter what happens"?

Do any of you remember Play Doh? Maybe they still have it, I don't know. But it was a flexible clay that you could mold into various shapes and then change that shape again and again. If I remember correctly, though, if you left it out to dry then it would dry and you couldn't reshape it.
You need to be like Play Doh - no matter what happens, it's your reaction and your response - your vibrational response to it that matters.  Can you try to remember this quote the next time something happens that isn't exactly what you planned?
How are you going to behave both internally and externally? You surely can take a few moments to step back and think about how you feel and how it's hit you. But don't take long at that step.  Don't let your vibration spin downward for long. Try to get your momentum back on the upswing. The shorter time you're on the downswing, the easier it is to keep your vibration going steady or even on an upward path.
Ask yourself a few questions. What does this event or these circumstances mean to me? What activities do I have to change in my life? Even if these activities were very important to me, they do not define me, so how am I really defined? What can I do now? How am I defined? How do I want to be defined? Is this a temporary or permanent setback? What am I feeling right now? What do I want to be feeling? What can I make of my life now that I have to take another path - the woods are full of paths. What's down this one? Most importantly, what can I give to other people despite my new circumstances?
Keep thinking of and asking yourself these questions. They will lead to a new sense of happiness. The Universe has a great way of leading us to where we're supposed to be if we allow it and don't get in its way with negative thoughts.
What's going on in your life right now? What path have you been going down? What path do you want to go down? What can you do about it? If you can't do anything, then find another path.
Keep us posted.
