Build a new model…what does that mean?
Taking a moment to ponder my responses to daily situations I ask…
- Am I smothered in a pool of worry and fear?
- Am I focused on ideas of how I think life should be…how other people should act?
- Am I giving myself permission to make a change as well as others, or stuck in a repeating mental tape or pattern?
- Do I feel as if my attempts to move ahead are being hindered by my own thinking, or feeling the need to have acceptance and approval?
Drexel Swanson found this quote, “Excellence is not a singular act, but a habit. You are what you repeatedly do.”
We can not deny that there is turmoil all around us. But we will always have the option and agency to decide what and where we will place our focus.
Cast off worry! Nothing good comes from this emotion which appears to be an innocent and sincere way of showing great love and concern. Rather, join me in adopting the motto, and building a new model… “It is not worth losing my health and wellness over; I am focusing on BELIEVING AND BEING HAPPY”
All worry does, is eat away at the shore footing of hope and faith eventually draining our physical being of life giving energy, eventually overloading the body with toxic chemicals of our own making.
President Gordon B. Hinckley once stated,
“Be believing, Be happy, don’t get discouraged, things will work out.”
