Change Your Mind, Change Your Life

believeChange your mind, change your life…do you believe this can be done?  Think of this way, we are constantly surrounded by people, places, and things.  Consequently, influential practices will enter into this arena, whereby, you will be affected.  Remember, we are all by-products of our environment, and we have the ability to change our environment.  Most times this change occurs when one has said “enough is enough”.  Generally, someone has thought about their current situation and made a decision to change the circumstances.  Aha…this transition took place in the mind—they thought.

How are you implementing this in your daily life?  Are you making decisions to read wholesome material?  Are you deciding to forego the television shows or phone conversations that are not healthy to your well being?  Are you thinking about how these things have been affecting your life for years?  Perhaps you are just now beginning to process that you can train your brain.  Whatever the case may be and however you found yourself here—the point is, you are here.

Today is a good day to bring your life back into balance.  Today is an excellent day for awareness.  Start with your breathing.  From this moment forward, focus on your breathing and the goodness it entails.  First of all, you are alive.  Having come to grips with this, what are you going to do today that will have an impact positively on your life and others?  Think about that for a while.  If you are not satisfied with the answer, re-evaluate.

Are you finding yourself stressed, under pressure, living in constant conflict?  Stop and think about your situation; and assess what you CAN do to make a positive change.  Do not allow yourself to become so consumed with the “can nots” of the situation, that stress overpowers you.  Instead, change your mind, change your life.

Loving God’s Way

loving-gods-wayImagine your thoughts being filled with nothing but “happy thoughts”.  How would your life be different?  Seriously, just think about that for a minute or two, or even a lifetime.  Today is a good day to learn to focus on the positivity around you.  Today is an excellent day to open your heart to love.  Are you willing?

As a counselor, I have seen and heard many things in my life, and the one thing I notice to be universal to all those I have encountered is the desire to be loved…the alcoholic…desires to be loved; the abuser…desires to be loved; the abused…desires to be loved.  Commit today to open your heart and release the agape love that is trying so hard to be freed.  There is nothing like awe and gratitude for something beautiful to open the heart to gratitude in general.

We love nature.  We love pets.  We love things.  Today, is the day to get back to loving people.  We are all created in God’s image and we are all part of His big family.  We were designed to be relational, so be relational—in a healthy, happy, and positive sense of the term.

This will lead to a life of peace…a life of joy…a life of purpose and sense of being.  Open your heart today to love those around you and notice the positive difference in your life.  Be Blessed.  Be Whole.  Be You.signature

Preserving Your Marriage with an Autistic Child

autistic-child-and-marriage-strainUnfortunately, in modern times, many marriages end in divorce or separation. This statistic rises even higher when you mix in an autistic child. No matter how loving and understanding you both may be towards your child, the truth is that autism is a very difficult matter, and strain on the marriage is not uncommon. By trying to stay positive about your situation, and by working to keep your marriage healthy, you and your spouse can avoid marital problems and hopefully survive the trying times of raising an autistic child.

Ask yourself—why did I marry my husband or wife? When you ask this question often, you begin to focus more on the good of your marriage, as opposed to the strains on your marriage.  Raising children within itself can be stressful, now add an autistic child into the midst.  Often times when we are stressed, we have the tendency to project our frustrations on others—typically those closest to us.  This projection may be onto a spouse, a child, or another loved one.

Instead of focusing on the frustrations, you and your spouse need to take some time to enjoy one another the way you did at the beginning of the relationship.  This may require spending some time away from your child.  You will need this “adult” breaks every once in a while, so make sure you have a strong support system and reliable friends or family who can properly tend to your child during times such as these.

Do not attempt this journey alone, work together with your spouse to help your child, instead of fighting with one another. It is possible that your ideas will differ, but it is not the end of the world.  Work toward a unified front for the sake of your child and your marriage.  Be prepared to compromise and always seek professional consultations before making any medical decisions for your child.  Remember that you are giving your child the best opportunities available to them when you work together.

Lastly, seek help when you need it. Part of any successful marriage is spending some time apart to focus on individual needs, and it is no different when you have an autistic child. However, if you find that you and your spouse are not happy unless you are spending time alone, it is time to reevaluate the situation. A family or marriage counselor can help you and your spouse get back on the right track to a happy life together. It might also be beneficial to meet other couples raising autistic children.  Be Blessed.  Be Whole.  Be You. signature

Failure is a Curse Word

failureFailure is a curse word—when you are a child of God.  Why?  Because nothing you can do will fail.  You may not achieve the results you desire, but Christ is always working behind the scenes on our behalf.

The term fail has such a negative connotation attached to it and can leave a person feeling as though they are just that—a failure.  As Christians, we are so much more than that.  We are engaged in battles that have already been won, therefore, we should not consume our thoughts with thoughts of failure.  Instead, focus on the positives that are going on in your life and discover ways to grow from the mistakes that have been made.

I am a firm believer that if you make 100 different mistakes, you are learning and growing.  If you make the same mistake 100 times, you have created a bad habit through the choices you have made.

Are you willing to make a commitment to be the best you can be?  Are you open to learning and growing?  Will you start today?  Schedule your COMPLIMENTARY PHONE CONSULTATION now.  Be Blessed.  Be Whole.  Be You. signature

Imprisoned by Your Past

imprisonedAre you allowing yourself to be captive to your past?  Do you feel imprisoned by your past thoughts and deeds?  Perhaps you believe you have nothing to look forward toward.  STOP—take control, and stop living a life of regret.

Consider the person who is in prison—no freedom to come and go as they please, living at the mercy of those around them, separated from the outside world, limited conversation with friends and family—what motivation is there for a person living under these conditions?  Acceptance.

When we accept the mistakes we have made in our past and learn to live and grow through them, instead of allowing ourselves to swaddle in them, we are able to release ourselves from the bondage the past can have on our lives.

Yes, life can be depressing at times, however, we do not have to stay in that state of mind.  We have the option to rise above.  Look for the inspiration in your life and let it empower you to get up out of the filth of the past and SOAR.  Just as a prisoner may find inspiration in the letters they receive from those on the outside, you too, can find your inspiration.  This inspiration may be found in your children, your spouse, most importantly, your Savior.  Christ did not die for us to live a mediocre life.

Learn to count the blessings, not the curses—functioning kidneys, clothed in your “right” mind, awakened on this side of the earth—we are surrounded by wealth.  Not monetarily necessarily, nevertheless, wealth.  Break through the chained doors of your past and reclaim your present TODAY.

Jumpstart A Super Conversation

conversation-starterDo you find yourself stumped for words when it comes to having conversations with others?

When you do not feel comfortable talking in groups, initiating a conversation can be quite challenging.  The body may begin to do things you are not comfortable with…sweaty palms, tongue tied, racing heart, etc.  Do not let that deter you from becoming an effective conversation starter, instead, try these five tips:

  • Implement an ice-breaker—tell a joke or share a story
  • Engage the group as a whole
  • Choose a topic common to the group
  • Avoid interrogation like questions
  • Ask open-ended questions

While this list is not exhaustive, it will get you headed in the right direction the next time you find yourself in a group setting and needing to get the conversation going.  Feel free to try one, two, or all of the above—whatever works best for you.  The important thing is to remain positive as you engage others.  You will begin to learn more about yourself and what works best for you and your personality.

You are on the road to positive personal development.  Do not let this be where your road ends.  Schedule your COMPLIMENTARY PHONE CONSULTATION with LAE-LAH Inc. today.  Be Blessed.  Be Whole.  Be You.signature
