The FLU!!!! Get your flu shot now if you haven't already. I just hadn't "gotten around to it" and boy am I sorry I procrastinated on this - but aren't we always sorry we procrastinate on things...sigh. But that's for another time.
What I really wanted to talk about today is that old phrase "one step forward and two steps back". That's the spiral that I feel I am in right now. But it's totally up to me to keep it from being a negative spiral and using the changes to my advantage. That is my responsibility because what I do and what I choose to do is all dependent on what's inside of me, NOT what's external. It's often easier to put the blame or responsibility outside of ourselves because then we don't have to do anything - we can just whine and complain and feel sorry for ourselves. No other action is expected of us. Anne used to say that once you started learning metaphysics you were "in trouble" (jokingly) because you can no longer stand by innocently and blame the Universe for what happens to you. You MUST accept responsibility and take action because this is all of your making.
I know this and so I am examining my attitude and making the appropriate adjustments. I have definitely declared that 2016 is MY YEAR. And I know it will be. So, I have to look at everything that happens and simply "Declare it good!" and then believe that it will be good. So many things have happened in my life to prove this statement that all I really need to do is look back at a few of them (remember I call them Kodak Moments because they are good memories that I can recall and change my vibration almost immediately).
What does all this have to do with my not posting for over a week? I was finally getting back into the swing of running - even though I really was starting over and almost as if I had never run before. But, at least i was out there doing it. And feeling good about persisting through the discouraging moments, those moments of doubt about whether I'd really be able to run or not but continuing to be out there. And then I get hit with this knock down Flu bug and I'm out of commission for about two or more weeks. That means I will have to start over again....poor me..NOT. I am declaring it GOOD! I know there is good in this one step forward and two back. I am being exposed to important lessons and it's up to me to absorb them and build on them. That I can do. That I will do. I am unstoppable!
What seems to be standing in your way? What can you do to change your attitude to deal with it in such a way that it will end up "Good".
Remember to declare everything GOOD!
