For Only The Good Friday, I’m working on some “affirmations.” It didn’t start out as a good, day–so I’m having to work at reminding myself. That’s the point of this “optimism virus” that I’m trying to spread on the internet. Staying positive and being optimistic is not a natural trait for all of us. We have to practice “seeing” the good, so that it becomes a habit.
This video is high on my list today. I’m going to watch it several times, until I realize that what I make of my life is my choice!
You will receive a body.
You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period this time around.
You will learn lessons.
You are enrolled in a full time, informal school called life.
Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons.
You may like the lessons or think them irrelevant and stupid.
There are no mistakes, only lessons.
Growth is a process of trial and error, experimentation.
The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately “works.”
A lesson is repeated until it is learned.
A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it, then you can go on to the next lesson.
Learning lessons does not end.
There is no part of life that does not contain its lessons.
If you are alive there are lessons to be learned.
“There” is no better than “here.”
When your “there” has become a “here”…you will simply obtain another “there” that will, again, look better than “here.”
Others are simply mirrors of you.
You cannot love or hate something about another person…unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.
What you make of your life is up to you.
You have all the tools and resources you need…what you do with them is up to you.
The choice is yours.
The answers lie inside you.
All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.
You will forget all of this at birth.
I hope your Friday is a good one (take a little tip from me: don’t start your morning trying to upgrade to WordPress 2.8!!!).
Leave me a comment or write a post and tell me that you did, so I can add you to these other fine folks who participate in Only The Good Friday.
