People often misunderstand quotes such as the one above. They believe that a quote such as that blindly believes nothing bad will ever happen to us. Positive thoughts don’t prevent bad things happening all of the time, life happens and in life bad things can and do happen.
Quotes such as the one above are a reminder for us to choose how we react to what life throws our way. They aren’t trying to convince us that positivity will keep the bad at bay, they are reminding us to stop and think before we act, or react.
If someone upsets or angers you, pause, count to ten and then see how you choose to react. That moment’s pause is often all it takes to take the sting out of our reactions.
Starting your day off with a positive mindset can have a huge impact on the rest of your day. You will feel calmer right from the get go, and feeling calmer can give you a whole different perspective on what transpires for you throughout the day.
Bad stuff can and will still occur, because we can only really control our own actions and reactions, we cannot prevent everything from happening. There will always be negativity, illness, death, etc, that is life.
But by choosing how you react to your partner throwing an off hand comment your way, or how you react to your boss and their bad mood, these things can be handled with a positive mindset, you can choose not to react negatively.
Choose peace over anger.
What a really positive card and a great start to the week!
The energy and your emotions are building, the sky is the limit, your dreams can come true. Keep moving forward as your goal is in sight.
I think this is a great card, coming right after Mercury has gone direct. The time is now to plan and do. There’s always a sense of hurriedness once Mercury has begun moving forward, but slow and steady wins the race, remember that when the current energies are urging you to move, move, move.
What a great start to the week!
This card, for me on a personal level, has come at a crucial stage in my life. The past has held me back and I’ve been afraid to move forward for fear of hurting the feelings of someone.
But that’s the past and I’m not going that way anymore.
Letting situations go is never an easy thing to do. We always feel safe in the tried and tested, why would we unsettle everything?
But it is in the unsettling that we find our voice, often find out who we really are, not who we are pretending to be for the sake of others.
Embrace change. Let things go. Move forward knowing it is the right step for you to take.
With Valentine’s just a couple of days away, today my message is one of love.
I am always talking about how love isn’t just about the romantic kind. It’s about our families. Our friends. Work or school colleagues.
People can go OTT at this time of the year. I don’t think that matters, why should it to us? We don’t always know what is going on in the personal lives of other people.
People without partners can feel down at this time of year. The displays of cards, flowers, gifts, a constant reminder of what they don’t have.
This is where self love is important.
Self love is a special kind of love. You always have yourself. I think it’s important at any time of the year to practice self love and care, soul love. Especially during these dark and uncertain times. But at this time of year it can be a wonderful way to help with any feelings of lack.
Be good to yourself. Be kind. Be loving. Remind yourself that you are not defined by having a man or a woman in your life. Your worth is all about you as a whole, not what someone else brings to your life.
Celebrate the love you have for yourself this coming weekend. Even if you are in a relationship, there’s nothing wrong with loving you too.
And if you’re not in a relationship and haven’t learnt to love yourself yet, just be gentle with yourself right now. Use this weekend as a starting point to loving you. Keep things simple to start with, learning to love yourself is difficult enough, so don’t over complicate any gestures or actions you plan on doing.
Most of all celebrate love this weekend. Any kind of love. Not just romantic love.
Mercury is retrograde, a time when communications have a habit of becoming fraught with problems, among other things. This card has shown up now to remind us that communication is key.
In everything we do we communicate with others on some level. This card is letting us know that we can have that chat we have been meaning to have, without fear of being ignored or unheard.
Remember, relationships aren’t just romantic, they are our family and friends too. Even our work colleagues, or peers. We can have loving communication with any of these people, this card is showing us that the time is now.
So if you need to tell someone something, you can be sure this is the time to have that chat and say all you need to say.
The outlook for February seems to be much of the same, the energy is still quite heavy, and for me, I believe the onus should be on us achieving our best for ourselves, as well as those around us.
Even though everything still has a bleak feeling about it, we can focus on all of the good in our lives, no matter how small.
Carrying even the smallest amount of hope within ourselves allows us to forget, however momentarily, about the dark days that we are living through.
That hope grows a tiny bit each day, until one day it has encompassed us and filled us with brightness and positivity.
Over the coming weeks be the change that you want to see in the world. It always starts with ourselves and grows bigger and wider from there.
Stay strong. Have hope. Smile often.
Continuing on from yesterday’s body theme, today the guidance is regarding rest.
Resting isn’t just about getting sufficient sleep each night, although that is a big part of it. Resting is essential after we’ve been to work or to school/university; even when we work from home, in fact, especially if we work from home.
Rest plays a vital role in maintaining our bodies needs, along side food and water. Rest can make sure we have a clear head when it comes to our lives.
The card is suggesting the coming weeks may continue to be hectic and stressful, and that getting the rest that our bodies require is essential.
