I choose!!! The following is not for the weak!!!
Okay – Today is an excellent day to “choose” to do something that has been heavy on my mind!!! Language – as The Secret and The Four Agreements state our vocabulary has the power to destroy life or create life!!! I choose to create life!!!
The following writing derives from a share my lovely daughter, Sherry posted on my Facebook page!!! I wish I would have saved the article! I have always believed that information finds you when you most need it!!! I was on the verge of trying new things – (as always) and this was one of many – LOL!!! The practice is to wake and free write three pages!!!
So I started writing like the wind!!! – This is the first of what has come from my “morning dump” – eek!!! Yes as graphic as it sounds – most everyone goes number two at the least one time per day! Dr. Parker reports we should go three times per day. Haha!!! I used to wonder why elderly folks love to talk about their BMs with a sense of pride and satisfaction! Well – as we age we begin to understand – Right?
Somehow I made a connection of the need for daily bowel movements to this 3 page free-write!!!
If – *“The average person has about 48.6 thoughts per minute, according to the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging at the University of Southern California. That adds up to a total of 70,000 thoughts per day.” If this is true then we must relieve our minds as well!!!
As David Allen on Ted Talks states we tend “accumulate, stuff, or avoid” thoughts. Add to this my understanding that our thoughts are like DRRUGS – they release chemicals – if they are positive thoughts – they release good ju ju!!! We feel happy, well, energetic… If they are not user friendly they will serve as toxins ready to destroy and conquer and take over all of our wellness – like not being able to go number two – argh!!!
…which do you want?
The grooviest part if our thoughts are mostly positive – Wow – Gosh – look out world! The world is our oyster!!!
Regardless the types of thoughts we may be entertaining – we can have too many!
Since my 3 day free write has begun I have come to the conclusion that we absolutely need to make space for creativity!!! The creative life force thoughts that will flow from your mind will astound you and propel you to see opportunities that in the past may have been there but we may have been too afraid to jump at!!! Like jumping out of a plane!!!
Also – you will find yourself present – in the moment – connected with every person you come into contact with – your relationships will blossom!!! You will find joy in the smallest of events!!! You will squeal at the thought of an old friend calling you and then the phone rings or the feel of your sheets on your body in the morning!!!
There is a lot of pain in this world and our natural tendency is to get caught up in it and ride the painful wave – I firmly believe that if each one of us simply focused on improving our own well being that will improve the world in an exponential way!!! Begin with you – a pen and a notepad. Begin your freedom with a 3 page free write!!! Gosh!!! I would love to hear what you come up with too!!! – it needs to be handwritten, unedited, anything and everything that comes to mind when you first wake up!!!
