Internally Grateful Weekly Newsletter, Volume 8: Bring Out the Best in You

Action for the week:

This will be a rather painless activity. Those are the best kind. Right? This is going to make you feel good for all the right reasons. It won't take long but the after effects will be permanent. So make sure you do it!

What do you admire most about yourself? 

Just one trait...yes, you can think of at least one. Perhaps it is your kind way with people, or your ability to make people laugh. Maybe it is your positive nature or willingness to help others. Take a moment to determine what you admire most about yourself.

Write it down in the middle of a piece of paper and circle it. Own that wonderful trait as you circle it with enthusiasm. Feel good about it!

Clear your head and keep the feel-good feeling flowing. 

Next to the circle with your admirable trait, write down a situation or person that you are having difficulties with, keep your good mood going, just jot it down. Now circle what you just wrote while keeping your natural high.

Look at what you just wrote on the page. See how you can join the two together. How can you use your admirable trait to resolve the issue you are concerned about?

Allow yourself to focus on what you can do and that you certainly can do it well. Allow yourself to see what you maybe did not see before. Surrender to making it work out on some level for you, simply because you can.

The solution may be much simpler than you imagined it could be. Very often, all that we need to do is have faith in our abilities and keep the good feelings going regardless of what is going on around us; stay on our path of self-empowerment.

Thought for the week:

The best in us is a reflection of our higher selves. Expressing this part of ourselves is truly magnificent.
