First of all, I'm thinking about Maui right now... because I am traveling there this Thursday for my best friend's wedding!!
Can't wait. Or, maybe I can wait... at least until I pack.
But obviously this quote isn't about globetrotting...
I am today where my thoughts have brought me. Interesting to think about.
When I took my first job straight out of school, I hated it. I didn't like my day-to-day tasks, but I also didn't like the person whom the company wanted me to be.
I swore off the industry (construction), but deep down I wondered if it was just the working environment I hated. After all, I have a degree in engineering. You can't just throw that away.
Where did my thoughts take me?
Back to construction with a company that lets me be who I am and encourages me to find my own path to success. I have the "dream" scenario that I wondered about five years ago.
And I still don't like it. It has nothing to do with my coworkers - they, for the most part, are fantastic.
It just doesn't make my soul sing. And now I can officially shut down those "what if" thoughts and move on.
So these past few months my thoughts have taken me somewhere very different. And I started filling out a grad school application last night so that I will be where my thoughts have been.
This law of universal attraction isn't just for big picture stuff. Do you ever have a lousy start to your day and then find a million things to be irritated about?
Maybe that's just your thoughts taking you deeper into misery and annoyance.
Maybe a simple mental shift would put a rosy hue on your afternoon.
Just as I am working to proactively shift my thoughts to redirect my path... maybe I can use this same process to clean my mind of self-effacing thoughts, of judgmental thoughts, of jealous thoughts, of anxious thoughts.
Easier said than done, but let's see where it takes us, shall we?
