The Law of Attraction

the trouble is in the mind, for the body is only the house for the mind to dwell in, and we put a value on it according to its worth

It’s Thursday and you know what that means? It’s time for some Thursday thoughts!

Today, I want to talk about this whole phenomenon called the Law of Attraction. I have been thinking about it for a couple of days now, since my cousin brought up the idea to me. Apparently it helped her achieved her goals and she wanted to share it with me in hopes that it will help me out in the future.

To anyone who has never heard about the law of attraction, it is the idea that whatever we put out to the universe, positive or negative, is reciprocated back unto us. It is the idea that the universe is listening to our every thought and every word that we speak.

Every time we think “Oh, I can’t possible get this job. I’m not good enough,” the universe hears us and returns it back to us.

It also works the other way. That is the beauty of it. When we start to think of ourselves in a positive light and start putting out positive energy into the universe, we feel our life starting to shift for the better.

I, myself, can vouch for this. For quite some time, I felt the most negative. I always blamed the people around me for their negative energy and almost taught myself that it was their fault that I was always so negative. However, that is not the case. We are responsible for our every thought, action, and energy we put into the universe.

When I started blaming others and taking responsibility for my actions, as well as believing in myself and focusing on all of my goals, I stopped letting myself down. I started thinking, “Your are kind, generous, and you deserve to be happy.” The more I thought about myself in a positive way, the more I noticed my mood began to change for the better. That is because the universe responds to whatever it hears. When it hears our positive thoughts and feels our beaming light of energy, it gives us opportunities and helps us achieves our goal. You want that job? Start believing that you are qualified. Start telling yourself that you will get it. And you know what will happen? You will be one step closer to getting it.

If we keep thinking positive thoughts, we welcome positive things to happen to us. It is simple. The law of attraction is the idea that by focusing on negative or positive things, a person will bring negative or positive experiences to their life.

 

 

Learning How to Get Warm

People leave you out in the cold and get mad when you learn how to get warm by yourself.

It has almost been a week since my first break up with my very first boyfriend. It left me torn into pieces. For days I had tried to pick up the pieces to quickly glue them back altogether, in hopes to feel alright again. Unfortunately it is not that easy.

There will be days when it seems that the pain has fully vanished, days when I feel like I am finally done wallowing in my own pain. However, these days only exist when I am physically surrounded by my support system. Other times I am forced to spend an afternoon alone, and these are the moments I fear the most. I fear it because this is when I feel at my weakest. These are the times when I’m reminded that there is a gaping void in my life where the person used to be, and once again I am torn into pieces.

I am learning that sometimes it is okay to be broken. Strong walls are not build over night. It takes time to build a wall strong enough to hold through an earthquake and not collapse. For now it seems that I am experiencing an earthquake everyday while I am trying to rebuild myself piece by piece. I may lose a part of myself along the way but I am also gaining something worth even more, and that should be an incentive to keep fighting.

Losing someone is always going to be hard no matter the circumstances. Fortunate for us, it is only when we go through these heartbreaks and trials do we find ourselves stronger than before. It is only when we finally learn to get warm by ourselves, stand on our own feet, and hold our hands do we find peace within ourselves.

I took this photo a while back when I went to the Royal BC Museum. At the time I didn’t really understood what it meant. Today I looked at this photo with a different mindset. It made me think of all of the wonderful people in my life. People who love and support me. People who knows me not by the things they have seen me do but by sitting down and listening to me.

This picture to me means that all beings in this universe has a meaningful part to play. It is comforting to know that we all need one another. We all need to listen, support, and encourage one another.

With that being said, I am so grateful for all of the people I have had the pleasure of meeting in the past. For those who came and went, thank you for the lessons you taught me during the short time that I have known you. I appreciate getting to know each and everyone of you. With every piece of yourself that you shared with me, I shared a piece of myself back to you. Thank you for being a part of my life and and opening my eyes to all of the things that I was unaware of.

For those who still continues to support and love me, thank you so much for sticking by my side. Thank you for being the anchor who grounds me but does not weigh me down. Thank you for encouraging me to shoot for the moon. Lastly, thank you for showing me that life is a journey you travel with whom you care the most.

Starting a new chapter

Just a month ago I was an aspiring elementary teacher hoping to get accepted to either SFU or UVic. That was of course until I had a chance to read an article going over the hardships aspiring teachers face in today’s world.

I’ve always known that being a teacher wasn’t going to be easy but I was always looking toward the bright side. However, the truth of the matter is teachers are not in demand. And I was not about to spend $30,000 or more on my education in hopes to teach a class someday. I wanted to be able to finish school and be able to provide for myself.  With that, I decided that school isn’t the right fit for me right now.

I was scared at first with my decision as school has always been a safety net for me. Not to mention that one of the schools I’ve applied for was the same university my boyfriend goes to. Sure it’s tempting to go to a school that will make me closer to him as distance sometimes can be a real challenge, but at the end of the day I had to do what was best for me. At this point in time, the best thing to do was experience new job opportunities that I can pursue in the future, something that was expected to be in high demand in BC.

However, with fear and uncertainty comes excitement. I’m excited to see where 2016 is going to take me. I’m excited for the new beginnings and maybe someday I’ll revisit my dreams of becoming a teacher.
