Ever feel like there’s a team of tiny wrestlers in your heart, battling it out? One side’s ready to rumble with hurt and anger, while the other whispers, “Hey, let’s move on to better things.” ✨
Guess what? You’re the referee! Shine your attention spotlight on the part that craves peace and growth. It might seem quieter at first, but it’s got the moves to lead you to victory.
This is a truth bomb!
Imagine you are driving a car with two pedals: one for gas and one for brake.
The brake pedal represents your ‘Darkside’, the part of you that wants to stay stuck and bitter. The gas pedal represents your ‘Right-side’, the part of you that wants to heal and grow.
You can only press one pedal at a time. Which one will you choose? The answer is obvious: you want to press the gas pedal and move forward.
But sometimes, the Darkside is so loud and persuasive that it makes you press the brake pedal instead. It tells you that you can’t forgive, that you don’t deserve happiness, that you are better off being angry. It makes you feel powerless and hopeless.
But you are not powerless or hopeless. You have the power to choose which pedal to press. You have the power to choose which part of you to feed with your attention.
The more you focus on the Right-side, the more you will feel calm, contented, and peaceful. The more you focus on the Darkside, the more you will feel stressed, unhappy, and resentful.
Treat your attention like a superpower. Where your attention goes, the energy flows!
Here are some tips to spotlight the Right-side: ✨
Practice gratitude. Every day, write down three things you are grateful for, no matter how big or small. This will help you appreciate what you have and what you have overcome.
Practice forgiveness. Forgiveness is not about condoning or forgetting what happened. It is about letting go of the pain and freeing yourself from the past. Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself, not the other person.
Practice positivity. Surround yourself with positive people, positive media, and positive affirmations. Avoid negative influences that drag you down or trigger you. Replace negative thoughts with positive ones. For example, when the Darkside says, “You can’t do this”, the Right-side says, “Yes, you can! And I will help you!”
Practice self-care. Take care of your physical, mental, and emotional health. Eat well, sleep well, exercise regularly, meditate, relax, have fun. Do things that make you happy and fulfilled. Treat yourself with kindness and compassion.
Remember, you are the driver of your own life. You have the power to choose how you feel. You can choose which direction to go. You can choose which part of you to fuel with your attention.
Fuel your Right-sight with the love, the attention, the joy and the peace that it deserves!❤️
