Taking a Day at a Time!

I had this awful habit of constantly being anticipating the future. I was living in a constantly stressed life, so unsure of what the future could hold. My baby daughter’s well-being, what would happen to her if, for some reason, I was no longer there for her. It was cruel knowing that she would have no one else to take care of her, to love her and protect her. It was exhausting.

The years went by, I was always re-adjusting to her school schedules, finding jobs that would fit in our schedules, so that she would never stay alone.

As I explained in my post of How to Quit Smoking for Good, I went through a bit of a scary time due to a clot that was found on my left foot. My daughter was 18 years old, and she took care of me with the sweetest and loving attention that I’ve never had in my life before!

This health event made me change the way I lived and perceived life.

The sentence “we’ll cross that bridge when we get there” started to be my way of living.

It’s now so clear to me the time and energy that I wasted all those years, the tears I cried, that were absolutely useless. We have no control of the outside events, nothing. We only have control of our thoughts, actions, decisions, or goals, and this is the most important part.

I decide to have long term goals, short term goals, but I take a day at a time, I live the moment with total intensity, I love every moment that I spend with my loved ones, with this blog, that I absolutely love!

I decided to put into practice every dream that I had, I learned that everything is possible, that we deserve the best!

Fight for your dreams to come true. Don’t need to step on anyone to be happy, Create daily goals, and enjoy every conquest, be grateful for your daily memories.

You have today, focus on it, love every minute of it.

Embrace today, knowing that the future is bright, and take one day at a time, one challenge at a time, and before you even realise, you are in that place that you were dreaming about!

How to Improve Your Day

Do you know when you have that gut feeling when you are absolutely sure that something is going to happen, your body senses it, and you feel butterflies.    

Your mind takes this message, this gut feeling, and acts as if it’s already happening and your body reacts accordingly.

We all have different experiences, and our circumstances may differ, but each and every one of us aim to be happy, to actually feel happiness. That starts with our mindset! Do you want to know how?

Step 1. First thought every morning

Think to yourself every morning: “Today is an amazing day” and physically feel it, just like you would if it was your birthday or the New Year’s Eve!

Step 2. Be persistent

Throughout the day keep reminding yourself, even when you have setbacks or obstacles. Keep feeling it. Your mind will be calmer, and you’ll have the ability to resolve everything with the right mindset.

Step 3. Make it a mantra

If you make this your life mantra, you’ll notice that actually everything is so simple and it’s so easy to make things go your way.

I hope this will bring an immediate positive change to your life.

How to control your Thoughts

It’s amazing the millions of thoughts that can fit in just one second of our lives, isn’t it?

It can become overwhelming when we just can’t control the number of thoughts that poor down like Niagara Falls!

It becomes a problem when they just don’t stop, and it’s keeping you from sleeping, from resting properly.

The great news is that you can control this, all of it!

When gaining control of our thoughts, we gain control of our lives!

Like everything else, it takes willingness, and it takes practice.

For me, it works wonders when I started to change the way I perceived life.

I hope these steps will help you get there, just like they help me!

1.Mindset

Start by making a change in the way you deal with your challenges.

Become conscious of your ability to overcome any situation, you can face and overcome everything that might come your way!

You can change your life by changing your focus! Think positive, act positive!

Trust yourself, trust your thoughts, trust your knowledge, your skills!

Don’t let doubt set in, always imagine positive outcomes!

2.Control Negativity

When imagining different outcomes in a particular situation, have you noticed that our mind tends to jump to the worst case scenario, the one that is just impossible to happen! The fact is that we always imagine the worst.

From now on, cut every negative thought by the root, replace it immediately with a positive thought. At first, you will feel resistance, you’ll have to force your mind to make that change, but by doing it consistently, your mind will start making this change in a natural way!

3.Let it Go!

When you set a goal, fill it positive thoughts, outcomes, create strategies, make a list with all you need to do to achieve that goal, and then just act on it! Don’t over-think, just let it go, let it happen. Don’t worry about how, just work for it, overcome the obstacles that naturally occur in any situation, and then just let the universe work to your favour!

4.Train your mind.

To make a change you must first practice it, and then you master it, right? You must practice, train your mind, on a daily basis, for positive thoughts only, even when facing a negative situation, look for a positive outcome, or for a different solution, just trust that there is always a way!

Train your mind not to think. This is a challenge! When you start to master it, you feel a major positive impact in your life!

Every night, before going to sleep, put your headphones and listen to some calm music to fall asleep. Stop thinking during that period. There will be some resistance at first, but by pushing it trough you will make it! You will feel all of your body relaxing, and you will be able to start experiencing quality sleep, your body and your mind are finally resting!

You have the ability to control your thoughts, and consequently controlling your emotions, controlling what you allow in your life!

You have this amazing power, that can actually change the way you live, the way you treat other people, and the way you allow other people to treat you!

Make it simple! Living is simple, go back to basics, find your purpose, be consistent. We don’t have dreams, we have goals!

Work for them and reach them!
