For too few people, life is fun. There are currently many people on the planet not enjoying their journey. Why is that? What happened to us as a species that so many of us came to believe that life is hard?
One reason for this may be that we have built our societies around the consideration that social/economic success is the ultimate measure of a fulfilling life. In this regard, the human species is unique on earth. No other species in the animal or plant kingdom goes to ‘work for a living.’ Humans alone spend the majority of our waking hours concerned with making money to purchase the things we need and want.
This is OK, and it has allowed us to thrive in many ways. Our progress and development in many fields is so exciting and interesting. We can look inside cells, build skyscrapers and fly to the moon and back. These achievements and so many others are only possible because of the organization created within societies, and because of the economic value we assign to people’s thoughts and labor.
However, with so much activity around us all the time, many people have lost sight of some reasons we are on the planet at this time. We are here to learn, grow and have fun! Life is fun, if you can remember to add fun into your daily life! On the other hand, life is hard, if you forget to make it fun!
Life is a series of events: That’s all!
Stuff happens every day. Life is a series of up’s and down’s, emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. How we choose to think about, feel about, and then react to each event will determine if we are on the happy or not so happy side of the scales.
Imagine that your emotions are currently in a state of balanced neutrality. Everything we are exposed to gives us the opportunity to have thoughts, feelings, and reactions. The way we think about, feel about and react to stimuli determines if our state of balanced neutrality tips to the upside, (positive) or tips to the downside, (negative). Simple, yes?
OK, so why do we get upset, sad, depressed, angry or fearful? If the power is ours to either create an up-swing or down-swing in the way we feel, why do we so often punish ourselves by choosing to have negative thoughts, emotions, and feelings?
A lot of the time, we are just reacting to our conditioning or the programs of our subconscious mind. The power of your subconscious mind to control your life is overwhelming. Unless you choose to take control of your thoughts and reactions consciously, your subconscious mind will force you to think and react, without reason, based on its PAST PROGRAMMING. This most often does not support you in the present moment!
Your life is now: It is happening at this very moment!
We cannot affect or alter the past no matter how hard we try. Your life is NOW, only at this moment. So why are we reacting based on past programming that we may have unconsciously accepted when we were a young child?
If we, as individuals, can understand that the thoughts, feelings, and reactions we are having to various situations on a daily basis are not based on the current situation, we can then begin to think consciously to create better outcomes for ourselves. To do this we need to become more aware of our own thoughts, more often. Then if we catch ourselves thinking in a negative, or non-supportive way, we can quickly change our thought process to lead up towards better outcomes in all situations.
Our thoughts create the substance of our lives. If you want to know why your life is not working out the way you want it to be, you only need to review the dominant thoughts you have had in the past. However, we have the power in the present moment to begin creating the content of our future. If we focus our thoughts positively to how we want things to be, we will be living in the future that we desire. Why not make it a future filled with lots of fun, laughter, joy, and abundance.
Change your mind change your life! Yes, happy, fun, abundant thoughts create a happy, fun and abundant life!
Your life is waiting for you to step up: Take control now!
So, what are you going to do about it? If you do nothing, then your future is sure to look very similar to your present.
However, you have so many options available. Your life is waiting for you to think, feel and react. If you can turn the majority of your thoughts, feelings, and reactions to the positive side of the scales, you will change your life for the better.
Please, choose to be happy!
Sure stuff is always going to be happening, and some of it is going to not be so good. Maybe, instead of getting angry or upset, we could use laughter as a tool to cope. Sometimes, laughter is the best medicine, because really, at the end of the day, life goes on. Whether we choose to laugh or cry, whether we choose to love or hate, stuff is still going to be confronting us every day of our lives.
By choosing to laugh more of the time, we will begin living the best life we can. Being mindful of our thoughts, feelings, and reactions will give us control of our lives and allow us to create the future that we desire.
Life is simple: Or as difficult as you make it!
Don’t get hung up by thinking too much about stuff. Feelings are actually more important than thoughts. With any challenging situation you find yourself in, it will benefit you greatly if you can learn to pause, close your eyes, and take several slow relaxed deep breaths before reacting. This will help to focus your mind on the current situation, and then you can react accordingly to achieve the best possible outcome.
Breathing deeply helps to engage our heart energy. It is from here that our feelings will lead us to make better decisions than if we reacted based on habits, (the conditioning of our subconscious mind). By doing this, your life is simple, and your life is now, in the present moment. Why make it more difficult than it needs to be?
So, what’s next? How do I have more fun in my life?
First, remember that life is a journey. By this, I mean that life is a series of events that continue to unfold around you at all times, with or without your permission or consent. This, we have no control over!
However, we do have control over ourselves, but only if we choose it! It is we, and we alone, who determine how we react to these events. The events, of themselves, are neither good nor bad. It is our thoughts and beliefs that assign a value to them. It is possible that any singular event can be viewed as good by some people and bad by others. The only difference is in what each of us as individuals believe.
Therefore, lighten up! Stop reacting based on old subconscious mind programs, and learn to become consciously present at the moment. From here choose positive ways to react to situations, and add some laughter for fun. Laugh at yourself, laugh at the situation, or just laugh because you can!
Your life will soon be filled with lots of fun.
