Dear Lovely One,
Keep your thoughts in the places that you want to be, dear friend. It takes a tremendous amount of discipline, but it is so worth it to train your mind to shy away from fear, hopelessness, dread, negativity, anger and jealousy. It truly is possible to practice day by day turning your thoughts towards gratitude, happiness and goodness…true happiness for the accomplishments and blessings of others, hope for the future, and forgiveness….even in the most difficult of times.
Each day, just make a solid decision that you will do whatever it takes to feel peace for the rest of the day. When a difficult feeling or situation arises, remind yourself of the commitment that you made that morning. Focus your mind on the beauty of the world, on the love that others have for you, on the love that you have for others, and on the blessings that you find in the moment (even if those blessings are as small as the fact that you have a roof over your head) and focus on hope for better days.
You must choose for yourself how you will feel, how you will react, how you will move forward in each moment. No one can do this for you. It is SO worth the work it takes to train ourselves to continuously focus on what is RIGHT rather than what is wrong.
You are phenomenal, strong and capable.
You can do this.
You are so very loved.
