Good things happen in our own lives, around us and out in the world every day. Focusing on what is good in our lives is a very healthy habit…and it sure makes the challenges easier to deal with! Purposefully looking for and acknowledging the positive creates a shift in how we see situations, including our own. It affects our thinking, our behaviour, our actions and ultimately, our lives. Following this practice does not mean that we won’t experience setbacks of any sort, it means that we purposefully choosing to live and THRIVE. The fantastic thing is that it’s not too late for anyone to make this transformational change.
Last week, I wrote about living our “what ifs” and 9 ways to start taking action towards living them (http://www.goodandkindcompany.com/9-simple-ways-to-start-taking-action-towards-living-your-what-ifs/). I received some great feedback from people who shared their own “what ifs” with me and the changes they are implementing to realize their goals. Thank you!! Every single one of us has different “what ifs”. Choose those that add to your personal growth and then start taking action. Choose to forgive someone, to reach out to someone you’ve been thinking of, to be more loving to yourself and others, to face a fear, to start that project, to be more kind, to compliment yourself and others more, to be more respectful, to celebrate more, to have spontaneous fun, to understand more, to live with less, to laugh more, to not judge others, to listen more and talk less, to see the beauty in the world, to speak positively, to be more compassionate. Choose to BE THE “GOOD”.
When we choose to “BE THE GOOD” and live with compassion and kindness, people change, awesome happens, thinking changes, spirits soften, opportunities reveal, healing happens, situations change, connection happens, hope appears and love happens. – Caron Keens
Kindness and compassion affects the recipient of the act, the doer of the act, the observers, those who hear about it, those who read about it, those who share it and those who watch it on TV or social media. The ripple effect just keeps going and going, spreading all that super cool rockin’ awesomeness to those in its path. Now that’s something good worth celebrating!
Together in good changes,
