Enduring Life to Joyful Living




It is possible to change your everyday thought pattern.  To be able to change from always seeing the fight, to seeing the positive in all that is around us causes one’s perspective and growth patterns and thoughts about life to be altered so amazingly into a state of beauty.  Changing the way we think IS possible.  Each day is a beautiful new beginning.  Time to work on seeing the world positively with the possibility that it has.  Time to be happy and filled with hope, and to live in the moment.  Don’t be bogged down by the past, and let those memories own what the present is able to inspire and see.  The future will unfold itself, in its own time.  Be present, be mindful, and enjoy each moment.  So, yes, it is possible to live in the bright, fully encompassed joy of happiness – and to escape the fight.  The journey is yours alone.

I was able to change my thought patterns in just this way.  It took about one to two years time, but it is possible.  I remember when my mother was alive the daily struggle I lived with.  My mother was my guardian angel, at that time.  She was able to lift me up and help me with my walk in life.  The heartache was always present though.  The fight was always to be felt.  It was when my mother passed, and I was left to fend for myself that the true battle began.  My parents were no longer there as a life-preserver, and standing on my own two feet and LIVING and surviving was now what I needed to do.  Yes, I still had my husband and children, but a sense of “I need to do this on my own”, prevailed.  It took a lot of work and struggle.  I read a lot about living in the now, positive thinking, and I wrote frequently to get my pain out which in turn helped me to heal.  Also, my wonderful counselor (social worker) was always there to help and guide me to stand on my own two feet.  The only regret that I have is, that I wish I had this mindset when my parents were alive.  It would have made them feel more at ease (I believe) when they passed.  My mother feared for my well-being and safety until the day she died.  I was able to tell her that I would be alright a few days before she died, and I believed this helped her, but my heart says that she would have loved to have seen what my mind was able to do when it healed.

I am sure, with my faith, that my mother is smiling down on the progress she sees now.  I still feel her around me often – and my father, as well.  So do it now, and don’t wait!!  Live in Joy, work on changing the struggle that envelopes you into the beauty of the moment that surrounds you.  It is never too late to live in happiness.  It is possible!
