Change Your Mind

Lovely day for a miracle, yes?

What if you couldn’t get it wrong?

What if you were right where you needed to be, even if you’re standing knee deep in experiences that felt awful?

Perhaps you’re worried, as most of us are at one point or another, of the what if’s.

What if I don’t get that job?

What if the house doesn’t sell?

What if I never get it figured out?

What if, what if, what if.

Just because we’re using our minds, doesn’t mean that we’re being productive. We need to measure how well we use our minds by something other than exhaustion. There’s a myth which states that if we’re tired as hell, we’re at least doing something in the world; we’re putting the effort forth so where’s the good stuff, right? It’s more dangerous than you think, because it keeps the spark in you sleeping and your dreams stay comatose; unrealized, undisturbed, untouched while you slowly die inside and try to give the condition other names: depression, loneliness, disappointment, just another crappy relationship, need a new job.

If you’re tired and it feels like too much work, allow me to offer a new perspective:

maybe, it is too much work

But not in the way you might initially think. Maybe it’s too much work because of things we do, rather than what other people or situations are doing to us.

Maybe it’s your job, your relationship or your friendships.

Be gentle with yourself.

Be brave.

It’s ok to have no answers and just the desire.

And yes, you can experience what you want.

I don’t care what you think about the economy, what your parents told you or what that bitchy teacher said to you in high school.

They’re full of it.

The sweetest moments in life didn’t come to you by virtue of your having all the answers.

Think back on it for a moment: what is one of the best experiences you’ve ever had? Did that really come to you because you started at the beginning with every.single.answer?

Probably not.

You don’t have to change everything at once.

You never did.

Maybe the only thing you have to change about the situation, is your mind.

Which luckily, you’re allowed to do at any time.

You’re right where you need to be.

I Mon-dare (like a dare, but specific to Mondays) you….

Change your mind.

Start small.

But make that small change once a day.

With a little time, you’ll begin to see that because you changed your mind the world around you changed.

It starts with you.

On The Wings of Miracles,
