“Dear past thank you for all the lessons. Dear future I’m ready” Ralph Smart.

I have been pondering lately the past 2 years and the journey to living a better life. When I started I did alot of reseach, info was coming at me from all angles, lots of self help, lots of education on why people behave the way they do. I will say in the 1st year I learned alot about myself and the world around me. I learned that when you start to change your outlook on life and you are focused on the positive, even in that which comes out of the negative. People who are prone to be a negative or the people who do not support your journey will automatically be removed from your life. Like attract like and if you choose to practise gratitude and they don’t. Well, how can two walk together unless they agree? Right?

Today in particular I was reflecting on how toxic my work environment was and how that bleed in to my daily life. How I felt prisoner to it and that there was no way of getting out of that, but I learned that even when it seems like there is no way out just wait because things wont stay that way forever, this to will pass. Dwell on the better outcome and things will start falling into place for that better outcome. Pay attention to your intuition and go with your gut. Don’t forget to be thankful.

Now, I work in an environment where we laugh and show care and concern. Where people aren’t used and manipulated to do what you want them to do. But rather when something needs to be done we simply ask. With care. It took some shaking things up, some tears, some drudged up bad feelings, some worry, and tests to get to this point. But the road to peace is never flat and uneventful. There will always be unexpected dips but it’s all in how you respond. It’s still not perfect but it’s a far cry from what it was.

Now, with all that I have learned, and the learning is never ending, I think I am getting to understand that however I am feeling, whatever I bring to the table shapes the tone for my environment. If I’m feeling shitty and pessimistic, it’s most likely to be a shitty day. But when I’m upbeat and optimistic, even the things that don’t go so great, I am able to handle them better. I’ll be the first to admit I’m not always the most bubbly person in the world and that’s ok, it’s not about being a ball of sunshine all the time. That’s just unrealistic. It’s more so about being mindful and focusing on how you can do better in this moment.
