Positive Food For Thought

Positive food for thought…
So I’m a month down the line from feeling so hopelessly disconnected from everyone and everything around me.
I wanted a fast return of my positive self but unfortunately I first had some “mind” obstacles to overcome.
My ponderings for today are about positive thought.
Do you believe in positive thought? Do you believe it can work?Before you jump up and answer my question, read on - and then decide.
A couple of years back a friend of mine gave me a DVD copy of The Secret. I’ve watched it a couple of times and looking at the testimonies of the people on the film I was pretty much in awe of how it worked for them.
Last week I found a copy of the first book.
I’m reading it slowly and “taking it in” chapter by chapter.
 it's one of THOSE days -
I'm going back to bed!
I definitely agree that if you stub your toe in the morning, it’s probably a given that you’re going to have a clumsy day and the more you “focus” on those negative moments they just keep on happening.
I’ve had a day where my friend’s car seemed to be attacking me, yes – every time I’d have a clumsy moment it involved the car!
I bumped my noggin on the roof, the door slammed into my leg, It seemed to be a vicious circle of me against the Raider. I ended up looking like I was abused.
For those of you who know me well enough, you will know that I’m a natural clutz, but I wonder if those who don’t believed me when I told them what happened. It could easily have been construed as – hmm – ok – she was attacked by a car… sure!
By the end of the day I was laughing at myself and the day started to improve.
Note to self: You still worry about what other people think?? Duh! You know the truth and that’s all that matters.
I’m seriously veering off the subject here – so straight back to it then.
This week I decided to start changing things here and there so that I could lead a more positive life.
I have honestly had a pretty decent week.
Monday was positively stressful. My husband went back to work - for the day - during his time of being booked off work with a broken femur - and now he thankfully knows himself that returning so early was not such a good idea. This is what made me decide to make my days more positive, so I decided to give each day of the week a positively delicious name, and see how things went from there.
Tremendously Terrific Tuesday went off without a hitch; Wickedly Wonderful Wednesday was just that. I’ve had moments with a friend that I wouldn’t exchange for any cash in the world and other things have been working out as if they were arranged to perfection.
I even managed to change from a negative mindset to a positive one.
I caught one of my kids being really naughty, usually that would set the day off into a tailspin on negative happenings. Without even considering the secret’s teachings I had thought of something really good and I had a smile on my face. I felt like a super star when I realised what had happened.
Hmm… this is really working…
On good days the kids and I usually choose a really loud and bouncy song to sing-a-long to in the car in the mornings, on the way to school. It’s an awesome way to start the day… so now we do it every day. It just sets our days off on the right note. (For us music addicts that is ;))
This is one that my kids and I get going to... Dunno why but it brings on our happy vibe...
So this is the point I’m at right now…
Have you had moments like these?
Would you test it?
