How many times have you heard or caught yourself saying:

  • when I make loads of money, I'll do......
  • if only I'm back together with my ex boyfriend, and I'll be happy
  • why did I marry my husband, I must be blind
  • why can't these people behave themselves, they are so noisy
  • why can't my child be the rest?
  • why must I go to work?
Sounds familiar? Don't worry! I'm not here to judge you. Because I used to have these thoughts too and sometimes even till now.... Hey! I didn't say I was perfect did I? =)

Most of the time we are always looking for happiness, prosperity and most of the time LOVE outside ourselves.  We think if our external circumstances are perfect we will then have all of these.

But guess what, if you haven't already noticed, our external circumstances will never be perfect because you cannot control it/them.  The only thing or person you can control is yourself.  It's so much easier to control others than make an effort to make your life work by thinking what you want.

If you find that your external circumstances are in a mess, then it's probably a good time to reflect your emotions.  Are they in a mess too?

I've heard this saying from a very wise teacher and I agreed with what he said.
Change the way you look at things and the things you look at will change.

So how do you maintain peace and sanity when everything is falling apart?

  1. Clear your mental clutter. Don't believe everything you think about.
  2. When you make a decision, ask yourself if you are making it from a place of lack or abundance.
  3. When you are emotionally triggered, ask yourself WHY are you triggered.
  4. Learn to still your mind.  Learn to listen to your inner guidance
  5. Listen to your body. If you don't feel right or good, then probably it's not something you should do.
  6. Always start a day feeling good about yourself. This will set the tone for the entire day.
  7. End the day feeling grateful. The Universe loves gratitude.
“Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.” ― Lao Tzu
