thanks John Tracy!
Do you ever feel self-conscious about "being positive"? Do you fear others will judge you for "being happy for no reason"? Do you worry that if you fully commit to releasing negative thought, it won't pay off and people will say "I told you so"?
Worrying about what other people think means you don't love yourself enough to trust your inner guidance. If you are concerned people will think you're foolish for choosing thoughts that feel good, then it's only because you think you are foolish. And if you think you're being foolish for choosing to feel good over feeling bad, then you're not loving yourself - because following what you know feels good to you is how you love yourself.
Start feeling good about choosing to feel good!
Life is a mirror. The more positive you are, the more positive your interactions are. The more you give, the more you receive. The more you love yourself, the more you are loved. It's the law of attraction.
You lead by your powerful example. When you choose to feel good above all else, no one will judge you. They will want to be around you more because you make them feel so good! Positive vibrations are contagious, and when the people around you feel how happy you are, they'll want to know your secret.
Whatever you believe is true. If you believe thinking positively just isn't going to help you, then you're right. If you think it is going to help, then it will! All you have to do is make the leap of faith and believe that your higher self will guide you. Believe in yourself and release all the magick you've pent up inside! It's there if you look, I promise!
By committing to a life of joy, you are choosing to feel happy before you get the "things" that you think will make you happy. Isn't that a good deal? Think about how fucked up it is for others to think you're silly for deciding to be happy right now, as you are. Why shouldn't you be? You're a beautiful, perfect human being and you deserve nothing but love and happiness. Choosing to feel good right now, instead of waiting until just that one thing changes, is how to start living a life you love now.
