Just the other day I was having a conversation with a few people on the economy and jobs. We all agreed, that there is change taking place right now.
However, it is the perception of people's views that has everyone running around crazy.
The way I see it is that people fall into 3 categories. By no means am I judging any of these people in these categories. I truly don't think some people know how to move to a place that feels better. As a society, we tend to gravitate to the negative.
- You will find people who completely disagree with everything that is going on and the actions that they take are from a place of low energy. They may feel frustrated, irritated, annoyed even anger. When you take action from this place, it only creates results that you truly do not want. You may feel like you are spinning your wheels, you are stuck in a place and you don't know how to get out of it. You can't see the light.
- Then you will find those people who again, completely disagree with everything that is going on BUT their only action is to complain even more about it.
- My last category are those people that notice change is happening but decide to look at it in a new light, a new expansion, a different view point. When you can be open to the change, to the contrast to the challenge, you are actually allowing yourself to connect with those ideas that can help to move you forward.
The conversation turned into how many people are losing their jobs and business is getting pushed out to overseas in the United States. As I listened to this conversation, this wonderful thought and idea came to me.
I will admit it, I am the person who will most likely look at a "challenge" or area of "contrast" and just know that something bigger and better wants to be born from this. It certainly may not seem like it at the time, but I know, in my heart that something better will come from this.
This viewpoint of mine is something that I have learned. I honestly can say, years ago I would have been placed in the middle category. One who completely disagreed with everything but only complained about it.
So, there is hope! I am proof! =)
So, my wonderful thought that came to me and what I shared in the conversation was, "What if, this is our expansion. Yes jobs are ending, business is being moved, but, what if, this is our wake up call to do what we truly LOVE."
There are two ways that you can look at these situations: You can complain about it, be angry with it.....which will only in return keep you feeling miserable and this will not allow you to tap into any new solutions or ideas. Because you are feeling so low, you will not get anywhere. You will feel stuck.
You can say, OK, what is this telling m?. What am I to learn from this? In fact, you might want to CELEBRATE because the job that you are losing was probably one that you complained about any way right?
This expansion that we are going through is to open you up to love and creation and to do the things that you truly love and want to do. That is what we are here to do. That is your soul's purpose.
Why live life in a box, feeling depressed, unhappy, unloved when you can experience pure joy and pure bliss each and every day.
So, I am asking you, what is your outlook of your life, your world? Are you ready to take charge of your life and start living it to it's fullest?
The best part is that you don't have to wait to make the change. Your change can start today. Start today to do the things that you LOVE to do.
Share with us how you are doing the things that you love to do. If you don't know how to do them, let us know. We can brainstorm and get the energy moving!
Here is to doing what you LOVE to do,
