What do you WANT?

A famous scene from “The Notebook”, we all know it, there are memes about it! Noah yelling at Ali ” WHAT DO YOU WANT?! ” It’s not that simple!” Her head and her heart were not aligned. ( The Head and the Heart <– really good band, check them out!!) A difficult connection sometimes! Knowing what we do not want, often comes easier than knowing what we actually want. Like Ali, we worry about what other people want for us, what other people will think of us, and a fear of failing to get what we want. Fear is the root of most failures, and turning our backs on our dreams seems a lot simpler..safer. With that mindset, we are failing before we even begin. I think we forget how powerful our thoughts really are! Our thoughts are the deciding factor of how our day, week, month, year, ect.. are going to go. So focusing on what we do not want, will not get us any closer to what we DO want. I recently came across this simple theory of what we think is what we get. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ioKU6Jue_k Sounds pretty crazy, but is it? Finding a way to shift your mindset from negative to positive will make all the difference to living a happy life. Find whatever it is that makes you happy, and channel that. For me it can be as simple as playing a certain song ( right now that would be -Something just like this by Coldplay & The Chainsmokers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FM7MFYoylVs) or thanking God for the good things I have. I realize that’s easier said than done sometimes- we all have crap, some of us hide it better than others, crap is always there! BUT we all have at least one good thing! So use that, channel that one good thing, and you will find your thoughts will shift from negative to positive 🙂 Figure out what you want, and it will soon be what you have !

    A great start to your blog! With a lot of positivity, optimism, and great points!

    So true. Fear of failure and the unknown hold so many people back from following their dreams. We become so comfortable with the status quo and our normal everyday lives that we lose sight of the things that are out of our reach and forget to pursue them.

    Keep it up, look forward to reading more!
