There are so many distractions in life. Things to think about, see, understand or worry about. Sometimes it all becomes so overwhelming and hard to see a light at the end of the tunnel. I have learned over the years to stop, refocus my thoughts and actions, to put them towards positive things instead of the negatives. If I can't control it, LET IT GO. I can't control anything but myself. I am in charge of my actions and my thoughts. So it's up to me to change how those things affect me and the people around me. I can't make money fall from trees for the needs in my life but I can do what I love, sell my jewelry, keep learning how to better my product and improve my work, to improve myself! I can do those things. I can keep my house clean which makes my mind calmer, grow things in my garden which makes my body stronger and healthier, take care of my animals which brings me joy and laughs. I can do those things. I can set goals and work towards them. I can eat healthier. I can learn new recipes to use veggies in. I can change my work habits to include down time for my body to rest. I can do what I put my mind and my actions towards. I can take more time to listen to my friends and family. To really connect with them. To really love those amazing people in my life. I can do that! If your world is looking glum...pay attention to what you are focusing on. I can't control what Negative people do or say...but I can unfollow them on social media and keep the positive people on my homestream. I can keep those negative people out of my home, out of my friend circle, and out of my head. I am in charge of my life...I am the protector of my mind on this earth. I busy myself with MY business and by doing so, I don't have time to worry about what anyone else is thinking about me, saying about me. If everyone did this, the world would be a happier place. It starts with you. You are in control. If you let it happen it will continue to happen. Take a stand today to make your life better for YOU.
