There are things in this life I do well and things I can do even better than that and the key is being able to identify those things and bring them to the surface so they shine like the sun! Of course there are many benefits to doing this such as always knowing there is something you are good at, having something positive to say about yourself at the drop of a hat AND knowing that if YOU can do something well, there WILL be someone else out there you could assist. Now why is any of this important? Follow me.
When we know what we are capable of we build a reservoir of strength deep within us that we can tap into for the fortitude to carry on when it appears that all around us might be falling apart. It is also the foundation upon which we can build a life, a happy life, a peace-filled life, and life of joy and LOVE. See many people believe that when physical items are acquired then they will be happy, or the coming together of a love affair will create that loving life that they yearn for but what I have found is that you can have all the outer trappings and still not be happy OR you can have all the outer trappings and eventually when those things are gone there you sit with your life such as it was before those things existed or worse off because you gave ALL your power to those things and now you are experiencing a feeling of powerlessness. Oh my goodness, what to do now…
Well when you can take a deep breath to regain your composure and then take another to make sure the first time wasn’t a fluke and then take yet another, you’ll find the mind begins to clear and a sense of capability begins to fill you. Then of course in response to your feeling calmer, a thought about the situation that brought you to your deep breathing will more than likely surface and because you have established that knowledge of what you can do well, you can draw on THAT thought to bring a smile to your face and create the sense that you are not alone for you have THIS going for you. It is uncanny how those thoughts of perhaps days gone by can become our allies when we least expect it.
So does bringing the memories of our triumphs resolve the issue at hand? In a way, yes because once we are in a positive, supportive state of mind we take the time to see the situation for what it is and most importantly what it is NOT which removes the overwhelming power of said situation and levels the playing field allowing us to look at it head on without flinching. Notice how when you look life directly in the eye, feelings of helplessness fade and you begin to attract what you need to bring you to a better place. And this very process can be one more achievement to add to the list of things you do well!
