Welcome to day 4 of my 21 days to be positive series, I am Brandy Ellen and am famous for being a happy, smiley, optimistic person. Remember each of these days is supposed to be a collaborative effort of exercises to practice for 21 days! Each exercise is published on a different date at HappilyBlended.com for you to review later and continue to practice as a means to become a more optimistic person in love, life and friendship!
Did you ever hear about the saying, you get what you give? How about you reap what you sow? I firmly believe that we get what we put out there in the world. If you are a person constantly thinking and speaking negative to yourself and others, then that is exactly what you will get in return. This is a bit similar to my day 2 of this series, Attract what you Desire, but it stems further than just changing your mindset. Today I am going to cover the area of what you think and what you say to others and to yourself.
I know that my brain goes 100 mph just like my typing fingers that go 110wpm, sometimes we all get overwhelmed with thoughts and our anxiety can get the best of us. Today I want you to think nothing but and say nothing but positive words. Yes, you can do this, I have Faith in you!
When life throws you lemons, make lemonade? Sound familiar? So today you are going to be making lemonade aka positive thoughts & words from lemons aka bad situations, mean people and other negative feed that goes into your brain. Just as your mind starts to do that protective, turn to the easy way out thinking, practice pausing. Put a pause button on your brain, let others around you know that you need to take a moment, please. Step away from the situation and redirect your mind back to positive words.
Find yourself in a field full of your favorite flowers, envision the smell of those flowers. Think about the smile that is now appearing upon your face, think about how that smell and the view of those flowers makes you feel. You are feeling pretty good, aren’t you? Envision this field, now take yourself into the moment that has you wanting to think and speak in a negative way. Use this flower scene as a means to return your brain to a positive mindset and speak only from a place of kind, positive words. Practice speaking kindly to others and to your own self, using positive words for the next 21 days, and after those 21 days, come back and tell me if you noticed a change in yourself.
Have you started to be better at having control over your speech? Have you started to respond more positive to situations you would have otherwise been negative about? What is it that has changed thus far in your 21 days to be positive journey?
