“The universe is fully aware of the things that you speak and think. Therefore, you must be careful of the energy that you put out.”
I consider myself one of the most impatient people in the world. I like what I like when I want it the way that I want it. It’s not my most admirable trait. I don’t really have a clue how to work on it. I’m actually tested on it daily. Both of my kids have autistic features and force me to be more patient, but I often fail that test.
Working on having more gratitude has been helpful in becoming more patient. One of the exercises that I do is to use my journal to list at least three things that I am grateful for. I try to do it at least twice a week. When I get up in the morning, I try to make gratitude the first thing I think about. It helps to determine the way that I navigate my day.
A friend sent me a list of things that she had been meditation on. The first thing that I noticed is that she spoke of what she was not going to do. My advise to her- speak positively. Turn those NOT’s and DON’Ts into I will and I can.
- I won’t worry becomes I will focus on thinking positive thoughts
- I’m not giving up becomes I will preserve and remain disciplined
- I don’t want to fail becomes I will succeed
The universe is fully aware of the things that you speak and think. Therefore, you must be careful of the energy that you put out.
When I was offered the opportunity to write a piece for Kimberly Elise’s website on gratitude, it came on time with what I was already learning at this point in my life. Learning to be more patient has come through recognizing that I should show and have more gratitude in my everyday life. Taking the time out to think of the things that I am grateful for has required patience. It has required that I slow down and take a moment to really figure out what is important. What things really need my attention? What things are draining me unnecessarily?
Make a list of the things that you are grateful for. Make sure that you are using positive words to describe those things.
