The words you use when you speak can make or break your confidence. They can determine whether you have a great day or a terrible one. They can also cause emotional bliss or turmoil.
Choose your words wisely...
You will find times in your life when you are more forgetful than usual. Typically it is when you under stress and bogged down by many little annoyances. This is what I call mental clutter. Mental clutter is a collection of the thoughts that continuously pop up in our mind. It’s the things that we think of and should take care of but then we end up ignoring. These thoughts will continue to haunt us until we attend to them.
When we were babies, we were born with a completely clean slate. No preconceptions of what the world would be like. We saw the world with new eyes, everything was so interesting, so new, so exciting. The world we were born into was limitless. With each new experience, we learned. With each new touch, we felt a connection to others. With each new smile, we felt love.
I used to read the news right before I went to sleep and first thing in the morning when I woke up.
It was the perfect way to ruin my sleep or to start my day off on the wrong foot. For years, I thought that reading the news was important because I needed to be informed. If I wasn’t informed then I wasn’t relevant. I probably learnt that directly from the news media. I was wrong. They were wrong…Dead wrong.
There are so many wonderful lessons that I have learnt from my two children over the past few years. I learn just as much from them as they learn from me (I might even learn more). They are little teachers that give me amazing insight, at the most unexpected times.
Unfortunately we as adults often fail to see the lessons because we are so busy in our own little world.
When you follow the herd, you lose a sense of your true self. You pass on the urges that you have deep inside of you to be your own person. You waste mass amounts of time, doing things like everyone else where that time could have been better spent doing something that takes your life to the next level.
