Choosing Your Reality

I claim MY own power, and I lovingly create MY own reality. I ask for more understanding so that I may knowingly and lovingly shape my world and my experiences. ~Louise L. Hay

 

It is amazing the power that one has to determine the reality we see. Whether is all doom and gloom, or sunshine and rainbows, how we choose to perceive the world can have a great impact on how we shape our lives and relationships.  I have always been amazed at the power people have to shape their lives and watching how some choose to use that power or the ones that don’t.  I am and always have been one to create my own reality, a day dreamer and constant optimist. It’s something that has been a part of me for as long as I can remember.

I work very hard to create the reality I want. I work on being the person that I wish to be. I work on remaining positive and being a positive influence on others. It’s not always easy to be the person you want to be. Sometimes there are sides of yourself that may not be so positive that want to rear their head. Those times are going to happen, but I feel it’s important to only allow those moments a certain amount of time before returning things to a more positive vein. To completely deny that other side of yourself and ignore it only teaches one to suppress that side, not control it.  It’s important to learn how to deal with all of your emotions so that when you are in a darker stage you still don’t do lasting damage to anything that you hold dear, be it in business or personal en devours.

Being more of an optimist, I tend to try and look on the bright side of things or if things are going badly, look for the things that happen to be going well. I look for the blessing in my life rather than all the negatives. I certainly could find plenty to bring me down and let it bring me down, but I don’t.  Honestly, I can’t. There’s too much good that I want out of  life, and I don’t want to miss it because I’m focused on the things that aren’t going well in my life.

Those who continually see things negatively tend to drive me crazy, and vice versa. They want to see the bad things, and I try to show them the good things.  It will probably always be a source of frustration; however, I can’t help being me anymore than they can help being themselves.

Sometimes the world really is what you make of it. I trying to make the best of my reality as possible. I have a good life. It may not be filled with riches, and it has more than it’s share of struggles, but I think I lead and amazing life.
