Sometimes it’s hard to stop the swell of painful, negative memories. Don’t get me wrong…as early survivors, we NEED to dwell, think, and fight to understand what we just went through in order to process it and move on. It’s part of the healing process. There is no correct time limit for this part to be over, and every human processes things differently and in their own time. If it seems to be taking longer than your neighbor, don’t sweat it. When we are tired of rehashing everything, we will start trying to fill our thoughts and life with more wonderful, beautiful things.
I found this online today, and it really touched something inside. Everyday we will continue to struggle out of the negative thoughts that fight for the fore-front. There again remains our choice to succumb or to be free today. This is a daily choice. Once the choice is made, then it’s up to us to fill the negative swell with something positive. We need to end each day with a pleasant thought.
I love this: Live in the present and make it so beautiful, it will be worth remembering.
I’m issuing a challenge, and I’d like to hear what you discover in 1 week, 2 weeks and so on…
We all need to find a way to make EVERY day beautiful in some way.
How will you make today and each day beautiful? It can be in something you do. Spend the day with a friend you haven’t seen for quite some time. Smile at a stranger. Walk in the park. Do what makes you feel beautiful and blessed.
I’m truly excited about this one! I am expecting some changes in my own life as a result. Let me know what you find out 😀
