What Gives You Satisfaction?

It’s those little things that do it for you, am I right?

Perforated edges, getting the last cookie or sitting down at the very start of TV movie that you wanted to see in the theatre. Woo hoo!

When we’re in a sour mood or things aren’t going our way we often forget to do those little things that make us happy and we also stop attracting those amazing moments when things just line up for us.

So, what happened?

The law of attraction says “like attracts like” and as we have thoughts of “this sucks” or “I don’t like this” then we just get more of that. I personally find it frustrating when I’m right in the middle of something I don’t like. What I tend to do is overthink it and what I’ve taught myself to do is allow myself to not think about it. As I just let it be, a crazy thing happens, I slowly become more and more happy. I don’t make a giant leap but bit by bit I find an improvement in my state until I’m where I want to be.

I laugh because I’m the guinea pig for all I’ve learnt. (I also am a keen observer of everyone around me as well as anyone who wants to teach me). I write this from my experience, not because I’ve mastered it but because I’m becoming more aware of it and think that I can explain it in a way that makes sense.

My point is, and I do have one, that our natural state is alignment. It is to be content and when we find ourselves far away from that state of joyousness we only need to remember that we will eventually get there if we just stop doing that thing we do that keeps us unhappy. Meaning, stop thinking about the thing that’s bothering you. If you have a headache, don’t think about your headache. If you’re at a baseball game and you’re scared of getting hit in the face with the ball, don’t think about getting hit in the face with a ball and you’ll decrease the likelihood that you’ll need a new set of teeth.

Our thoughts are powerful. They attract exactly the feeling we have when we’re thinking those thoughts. 

But, take heart because your positive thoughts are infinitely more powerful than your negative ones so you won’t instantly manifest something that you thought about for 5 minutes one Sunday.

So the next time you find yourself in a mood as I call it, find something, anything that makes you a little bit happier and do it.

Make that tea, paint those nails (you too guys), go for a walk, vent to a friend, watch Netflix, write in your journal, watch funny cat videos or in my case ripping perforated edges of my parking receipts and put a smile back on that face even if it takes all day.

One little improvement after another and your natural state of alignment, happiness will prevail and lovingly suck you back in.
