Please DO milk the good stuff in life. Make the most of a hearty laugh, savor that cold, creamy gelato, and allow a compliment to penetrate deeply into your soul.
The trap? It’s so easy to just fast forward through life, or push aside a tender moment as we move on to the next thing.
Life isn’t a race to the finish line.
Smelling the roses and chasing butterflies along the way make the journey rich. And the long way is often the scenic route!
However, should you scrape your hand on a thorn, or a frenemy slights you, or a seagull takes a #$%@ on your head, don’t milk THAT.
Moaning about what went wrong only amplifies it, underscores it, and energizes more of the same.
Just. Stop. It. (Preaching to myself, here.)
Sometimes it’s a habit. We get caught up in the drama of the thing gone wrong. We enjoy telling the story to the gasps and collective groans of our audiences. (Have you ever noticed that, just like the fish caught gets bigger with each re-telling, the drama around your negative story only grows every time you tell it?)
Those of us that believe in the law of attraction have learned it’s not what you WANT that you get – it’s what you FOCUS on that you get.
If you want more instability at work, keep milking it. Talk to all of your co-workers about how unsettled you feel. Play out your negative imaginations, leading to paranoia. Read into every possible slight and anticipate the worst possible outcome.
If you want a better work life, use that amazing imagination of yours and envision your best-case scenario. Play out that conversation with your boss until it’s pitch perfect. Take every positive encounter and fertilize your desired outcome.
Our word these past weeks has been honesty, and I’m all for calling things as what they are. To a point.
There comes a point where it’s far more effective to conceive of what is NOT as though it is.
That’s where you go from living under the circumstances to being truly meta-physical. On top of the physical; over it.
Milk the good stuff and more will come your way.
Naysayers might criticize and say you make too much of a thing.
Can you ever have too much of a good thing?
My musings on honesty and a new WOW, coming right up:
Don’t despise what’s happened in your life if you learned something from it!
Have a great couple of weeks…
