Personal development

When everything is in black and white

We all have days like these,

when we feel like we have let ourselves down,

when we are frustrated because nothing is going right,

when we just don’t want to do anything but wallow in self pity and hide in bed.

But life hasn’t changed. Today might feel worse than yesterday because of certain events, but in the grander scheme of things, it is a drop in the ocean of all the life events in your lifespan. Nothing is impossible to fix. Never underestimate the power of a true decision.

A true decision is one that commands commitment and the willpower to do ‘whatever it takes’ to make it happen. I don’t say this lightly as it is not at all easy to do. But, ironically, making the decision is a split second action that requires nothing but our mind (hence making it extremely easy to do), it is honouring that decision where many of us fall through.

I have been fortunate enough to be shown how a change of mindset can suddenly alter the meaning we give a set of events and flip negativity to positivity almost immediately. Just change your story in your head around what is upsetting you and you will see how silly it was to waste precious time being unhappy. Now you have the power to make a change.  Albert Einstein famously said : “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different result”

Music is a powerful tool for altering our state of mind. I hope this some draws out a smile from you as it did me. Feel free to bob along to the music! if only you can see me now!
