In order to maintain a positive outlook throughout our journey, it can be necessary to realign our focus from time to time. Sometimes we get a little lost in events (we feel as though they are a part of us) and forget that our concentrated focus forms our reality.

We, humans, find it easy to get lost and become complacent. Unintentionally, we go on automatic pilot and become absorbed and all consumed in events. When the lessons get tough we can get lost in an attitude of “why me” and allow this less than ideal attitude to weigh us down. We can forget that we are not what we experience and begin to own what is happening in our lives. Thank goodness something eventually jolts us back into the moment and reminds us that our negative focus is actually exaggerating the lesson into stress and turmoil.

We have to remind ourselves that we are human when we find that we have somehow turned our “life” boat around and are paddling up stream against the current of life.

Always be gentle with yourself and through a loving reminder turn that boat back around to flow downstream with the current. The faster we recognize our “against the current” struggle (negative focus), the faster we can return to the natural flow of the current and re-centre ourselves and start to enjoy the ride again.

If we can truly focus on what bring us happiness during these life lessons, we can at the very least ease the stress of these lessons. Do not take life’s lessons personally. They are not in place to punish us.

We are always capable of shifting our focus to anything that helps us to experience contentment. Happiness is a choice. We can learn to choose calm over stress.

The object of our focus does not have to be anything colossal. As a matter of fact, it is usually the small simple pleasures of life that help to uplift us. As we are well aware, focusing on negativity only brews sadness, fear and anxiety.

If we have allowed ourselves to slip back into a more negativity outlook for an extended time or if this is a new concept for us, it can certainly take some work to learn not to identify with these energies. It can be difficult to even recognize in the beginning, but with constant mental reminders and a gentle but concentrated effort, it does get much easier.

Eventually a focus on negativity will become effortlessly recognizable. Your vibration (energy) changes as you regain your positive momentum and life will feel as though it is lifting. It will feel much lighter and easier.

It may take some time for these effects to be noticeable as much depends on how long we have been drawn into negative drama and how studious we are at practicing this shift. Little by little, we notice the subtle changes and our lives will begin to feel and look much more promising.

Do not give in to the challenging conditions in life. See them for what they are. Acknowledge them and let them go. You do not have to own them. View them simply as lessons that lead you to great growth and development.

We can never forget our focus. By being aware of our focus, we take control of our journey and our attitude towards it.
