I recently wanted to put my energy into a trivial issue that was way beyond my control. Yes, I can pick at it, over analyze it and have the most insecure thoughts run rampant in my head. How would that benefit me though?
Yes, I was getting to that point but then I stopped to ask myself, “Is this a true reflection of my greatness?”
“Is this very moment going to make me feel better about myself or attract the energy that I need to thrive?”
Low key: I so anxiously wanted the last word and I had to realize that by me encouraging further insult to injury, the only person I was truly hurting was myself. Not cute.
I know it happens to the best of us: our energy gets caught up in the wrong places and it puts a hold on our lives which ends up becoming repeated cycle. That same negative energy keeps us focused on the wrong thoughts, people, emotions and scenarios and it forces us to stay in a cycle of personal destruction.
Shifting your energy to the positive instead of entertaining something negative, especially if it’s way beyond your control or doesn’t represent your wonderful self, is so powerful.
I write/speak on cycles a lot because I believe that if the lesson isn’t learned in the previous cycle, it will continue. Life is supposed to teach us lessons, especially through our experiences.
We have the power to choose how we disperse our energy and the type that we attract. I had to activate that today because I really wanted to allow my emotions to control me.
You have the power to do better than yesterday and even more tomorrow. You have the power to not allow outside circumstances determine your joy.
I made the self-preserving decision to NOT have the last word. I didn’t send a response to what could have been a COMPLETE disaster. I did this to not only protect my energy but to also remind myself that I don’t have to entertain my negative thoughts. You have the power to choose.
- I can choose to be positive.
- I can choose to shift my energy.
- I can choose to focus on how I can be more aligned with the purpose that I was called to do.
Releasing the idea that I need to have it all figured out is so….darn freeing. I have so much living to do (as well as you) that doesn’t involve petty arguments, assumptions, anger, confusion, frustration, self-sabotage or manipulation.
No hunny, that’s definitely not cute.
You could be:
- Seeking God through prayer, worship or reading his word
- Activating your ministry
- Reading a great book
- Planning your next get away
- Working on a much-needed project
- Spending quality time with loved ones
- Finding ways to healthier living choices both mentally and physically
- Enjoying nature
- Focusing on your greatness
- Participating in self-care rituals, unapologetically.
It’s totally up to you what you decide to label as your energy focus but it is a matter of being conscientious about your decision to maintain your peace and understand that your greatness matters. The energy you release into the universe will eventually make its back to you.
What are you doing today to shift your energy and focus on your greatness?
Make it a day of greatness, beautiful soul.
