My thoughts help me to manifest my destiny. 2 years ago, I was depressed. I wasn’t happy with what I had. I could only see sadness, unhappiness, and hate in the world. I was really ungrateful for the things that I did have even though I had more than most. I saw moments of happiness and sometimes I could feel them but it wasn’t lasting. I was manifesting the thoughts that I was thinking. I would sing a horrible song to myself. I turned the song “I’m Beautiful” by James Blunt into “I’m ugly”. I would sing that to myself on a daily basis because that is how I felt about myself. One of the ways my life coach helped me is to change the way I think about myself and learning to be grateful of what I have. Every day for a month I would get up and right down three things that I was grateful for. I still do this exercise only I do it in my mind. Just this Saturday, I had a busy day at work. As I was walking out of the hospital, I was hit with this sudden overwhelming joy. The thought that was going through my mind was that I am living in Hawaii. That is something that I used to only dream about but was too scared to do. I was scared to not be near my family and friends. Now that I have changed the way I think, I have more happiness in my life. I’m attracting more positivity into my life. I’m seeing more beauty in the world. I’m more out going and doing new things that I have come to love and lift my spirit. I still have negative thoughts at times but I don’t entertain them like I used to. I’m manifesting a more positive life. I’m attracting what I am now and that is positivity. The first thing that really helped me to change the way I think was changing the way I eat. When I ate doughnuts and fast food every day, I was sad and depressed. When I changed to eating more raw fruits and vegetables, my thinking started to change. I started to feel good about myself. Now when I eat a muffin or a brownie, the next day I feel sad and not myself. The thing that I get complimented on most at work is my ability to keep smiling even when the work is hard and that I help out a lot. The last hospital that I worked at really showed me the power of positive thinking. I didn’t want to be floated to another floor because I like the people that I worked with. I decided to look at being floated as a new experience. I didn’t have any problems when I floated to another floor. The people were nice to me and even asked if I would come back to the floor sometimes. I turned the situation around with my thinking. Positive thinking works. I know that I would not be where I’m at right now if I had not changed my thoughts and then took action. I am a beautiful person inside and out.
