What if these ailments we are suffering from are a result of us punishing ourselves?
Now I’m really just playing the devils advocate here. So let’s play along and you can decide at the end whether it’s bullshit or valid. Maybe it’ll just be another piece of information that goes in one ear and out the other, but maybe it will change your life.
Do we subconsciously punish ourselves?
We hear the scariest stories everyday or almost, at least in my career. I’m a hairstylist and for some reason, I guess because people have nothing else to say so they talk about the news, people tell me the current events, whether in their life or what surrounds them.
I think most people socialize in this way. We don’t know what to say so we talk about all the scary crap we’ve heard. I wonder what would happen in our lives and in the world as a whole if for even just one week we only talked about the positive goodness in the world. Because there is so so so much greatness.
We hear these crazy story’s and we think wow I’m so lucky that wasn’t me. But why was it them? Why did this crazy messed up thing happen to them and not me? Why is my life so perfect? I kinda feel guilty. Do you ever feel that way?
What if what ails us is really us punishing ourselves because maybe if we are suffering in a small way, maybe if we don’t really “have it all” we don’t have to feel that guilt. We feel like we can blend into the world along with everyone else and no one will be mad at us. No one will be jealous or envious of us if we are struggling too. You ever meet that person that always has “something” happening in their life. Some drama. Or maybe you are that person? Maybe if you always have something crappy happening to you, then maybe you don’t have to feel so bad.
Do I deserve this? Do you ever think that?
Here is what I challenge you. I challenge you that you abso-fuckin-lutely deserve the good health and happiness in your life. You deserve success, you deserve that baby, the dog, the husband, the 3 acre parcel and the white pickett fence. God wouldn’t have given it to you if you didn’t.
Live one moment at a time because it’s the only moment that’s real. God wants you to enjoy this life. Your life! He gives you what you need and he wouldn’t have if it wasn’t for you. Next time you think of feeling guilty or sad for the person you hear of sad news. I challenge to to send them love and light of good will and wellness and peace, then drop it.
I challenge you to talk only positive for one whole week. And when you get to the end of that week and you see how amazing you feel. I challenge you to go another week. Stop talking and posting about the shit of the world and share a positive story on instagram or Facebook.
Everytime you feel tempted to say something negative, I want you to think of say 5 things you are grateful for.
May today bring you more peace love and happiness then you could ever imagine!
