Is it time to stop taking life so seriously?

While some people may choose to view blindness as a tragedy and pity me, I choose to make light of it when the opportunity presents itself.
For example, there were a few times that I was talking to someone, and that person left the room without telling me. I kept talking until I realized that the other person wasn’t answering me. She came back, and I told her what happened. My friend apologized for leaving the room without saying anything, and we both had a good laugh over it.
In one instance, a family friend bought a large container of catnip for his furry companion, and he showed it to me. We were having spaghetti for dinner, and the container of catnip felt similar to the container of parmesan cheese. I poured a small amount into my hand and got ready to sprinkle it onto my spaghetti. My mother grabbed my arm and asked what I was doing, and we had a good laugh.
During both of these incidents, I could have gotten annoyed with myself or even engaged in self-pity. However, I chose to laugh. I refer to these types of incidents as the perks of being blind. Laughter can brighten the most serious or embarrassing situations.
Laughter can also raise one’s vibration, so take some time to have a good laugh at your own expense!

how to beat the blues during life transitions

Life transitions are inevitable, and they can sometimes bring a case of the blues with them. Here are some suggestions that have helped me to navigate these times.
First, it is important to remember that these situations are only temporary, and things are likely to get better. You may have to remind yourself of this several times a day.
Also, take time to engage in your favorite activities in order to bring more joy into your life. Don’t forget to take some time to laugh. It may feel forced at first, but just go with it.
Another thing that helps me during these times involves engaging in my spiritual practices. For example, I like to use my daily walks as meditations. During these walking meditations, my thinking mind is out of the way. This allows room for insights, solutions, and a fresh perspective.
Also, make sure you get plenty of rest, even if that means sneaking a power nap into your day.
Don’t forget that it is okay to let yourself cry sometimes. It is healthy to allow yourself to express and release pent-up feelingsFinally, and most importantly, ask for support when you need it.

why you may want to stop asking this question

If you are familiar with the law of attraction, then you already know that affirmations, if used correctly and with other spiritual tools, can help you to manifest your desires. However, did you know that questions can be used as affirmations if traditional affirmations aren’t having the desired affect?
Neither did I! In fact, when I was first introduced to this concept, I nearly laughed. However, this practice transformed my approach to affirmations. Let me give you an example of how this works.
Have you ever said, either out loud or in your head, something like: “What’s wrong with me/this situation in my life?”
Maybe you’ve even noticed that everything that you thought was wrong with you or a specific situation in your life has been reflected back to you. After experiencing this, you may be inclined to think, “Wow. Something must really be wrong with me/this situation.”
That is an example of a negative affirmation, and I’ve definitely been there! After several years of doing that, I finally had enough!I began to ask what was going well in my life.
My experience and outlook began to change. The changes in my life were not immediate. In fact, my perspective shifted gradually, and it definitely took some effort.
Affirmations are definitely not a quick fix or bandaid to cover deep emotional wounds. Now, if I feel like something is going wrong in my life, I take several deep breaths and ask: What is going right? I do this several times until I begin to raise my vibration, and from this state, I can either let the situation go if it is out of my control or take action on the things that I can. Then, everything that is going right in my life is not only reflected back to me, but it is magnified! Isn’t that much more fun than dwelling on all of the perceived wrongness in your life? I dare you to try it!

a message about success

Hello, everyone! I received some more guidance that I’d like to share with all of you. In order to be successful, there are two essential things that need to happen. First, it is important to be in a state of gratitude as much as possible. Second, in order to be truly successful, it is important to listen to our intuition and take action according to your inner guidance. If we do these two things, we are able to create success for ourselves.
It may take some time and effort, but the journey is definitely worth it!

insight for today

During meditation, I received some guidance that I wanted to share, and I hope it is beneficial to you in some way. Focus on joy and success rather than fear and stress.
Yes, I can already hear some people telling me that this is easier said than done. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. Ask yourself these two questions:
How can I bring more joy into my life? How would my life change if I focused on joy and success for just five minutes each day?
If you don’t feel able to do this right now, that’s okay. Alternatively, you may want to start by asking yourself what is keeping you from allowing more joy and greater success into your life. Remember that you always have a choice when it comes to how you want to experience life. You owe it to yourself to choose a life of joy and success. Yes, it is truthat you may have days when nothing seems to go your way, but you can still choose your reaction to those experiences.

three benefits of asking for and receiving help

In our society, there is this idea that we have to take on as many tasks and obligations as possible, preferably without anyone’s help.
While independence is an important value of mine, it can be taken to extremes, and this could have consequences for us.
First of all, we can become completely overwhelmed if we try to do everything by ourselves. This could decrease our energy and increase our stress levels. Also, when we ask for and receive help from others, we are allowing those people to be of service to us.
The third benefit to asking for and receiving help is that we actually increase our ability to receive abundance and prosperity. This is because we are literally telling the universe that we are open and willing to receive. Doesn’t that make asking for and receiving help much more exciting?

how to turn frustration into something useful

Have you ever been in a situation which caused you to become frustrated? I’ve been there, too, and it is not fun at all!
There’s good news, though. Our frustration can be turned into something useful. In order to explain this concept, I will give you an example from my own life.When I started my business, I couldn’t help but notice that there are certain resources that aren’t accessible to those of us who are blind or visually impaired. I have two choices: I could complain and become frustrated, or I can turn my frustration into an opportunity to learn to be more flexible and find more accessible alternatives.
However, you do not need to be blind or own a business to turn your frustration into something positive and much more productive. For example, let’s say that you are sitting in traffic, and you are going to be late for an appointment. In fact, there is so much traffic that you have to take another route altogether if you want to make it at all. Doesn’t that just frustrate the pants off of you?
Now, let’s look at your situation from another perspective. You were so frustrated by the traffic that you chose another route. Now, you just learned a whole new route that could save you time and money in the future. Isn’t that more exciting than remaining frustrated?
