I do not fix problems. I fix my thinking. Then problems fix themselves.Louise Hay
Fixing your thinking sounds harder than it actually is. When we perceive it’s a problem, then the mind goes into ‘fixing mode’ in order to deal with the problem. But what if we were to accept the problem and thus fix our thinking to acknowledge the change in our life and to see what we want to do with it.
Example: You get fired from your job. At first, perhaps you are upset, worried and mad. But as you come to accept that you no longer have this job, perhaps you can see the change as a joyful one for you are now set free from the burdens of this job and can find another one. How do you feel about the phrase ‘every ending is a new beginning’? It’s true that you are now able to find something else that pleases you, that invites enthusiasm into your life and with it, a Joyful Change!
While I’m simplifying the situation, it’s sometimes easier to allow your thinking to be simplified, especially if you weren’t happy in that particular job for whatever reason. Now you have a whole new path to pursue that brings you joy! It’s baby steps for sure, but with the outcome of a new path!
Fixing your thinking means counting your blessings with gratitude and allowing your mind to wander to limitless possibilities. It’s allowing your creativity to flow in ways you hadn’t before. now. It’s accepting what is instead of fighting against the tide. It’s going with the flow and allowing yourself to broaden your horizons. It’s not letting disappointment hold you back, but instead having it initiate you forward to what you’ve been dreaming of doing.
It takes time and practice to allow your mind to fix itself in order to fix your problems. I can help if you need a hand to hold while you process the situation. Reach out. I’m here to help!
