Today I have stopped by to share with you a music video that a very dear friend shared with me a few weeks back.
Now I know it is difficult to be happy 100 percent of the time, mainly because if you are a living human being with feelings, well there is this thing called life that just loves to jump in and send all your well thought out plans to Mars. That is just the way it is and has been since the dawn of the human being 🙂 so lets just deal with it and move right along shall we.
Now as promised in my last article I wanted to focus more on mindset this year as personally I feel this can be a big reason for a lot of our health issues. Be it in our general feeling of well-being, our relationships with others, our physical fitness endeavours, weight-loss and all aspects of our lives in general. Now there are many articles and studies from the medical and psychological fraternities that also show when our mental health is compromised our mindset and the way we view the world around us can make a big shift towards all things negative, which has a tendency to darken our mood.
Mindset and How you View the World
Over the last 14 months I have been working extensively on my mindset in my efforts to change my personal circumstances in life. I decided 14 months ago that I wanted to view the world differently and to do this I was going to have to make some big changes in my life. So I threw myself into the challenge of self-development in all areas of my life with the goal being to change my view of the world, to change my circumstance I needed to first empower myself not only with knowledge but also on a personal level, I had to change my mindset.
Now I know a lot of people out there scoff at the terms Mindset, Self Development and empowerment likening anyone who is actively partaking in these practices to hippies and loony tune nomads wandering the world on happy drugs and only looking through rose-coloured glasses and that is fine they can stay in their boring mundane over logical box working their 40 hour week in a job they have had since forever. I am quite happy for them to stay in their job being “JUST OVER BROKE” (job) for the rest of their day’s good luck to them I say and I will not force my beliefs and way of thinking on them; as long as they leave me alone and don’t force their views and way of thinking on me.
The funniest thing about all of this is generally those nay sayer, doubting Thomas, mundane logical thinkers are general people in our closest circle; friends and family members bi bummer because it kinda makes it hard for you when they are the ones you generally turn to for support in your efforts to change your mindset so you can have a better life. So the thought of having to end your relationships with them whilst on your journey of self-development is for most of us not really an option, I understand this because I have faced this challenge myself during my journey of self-improvement over the last 14 months, and I can tell you they’re were days when I just wanted to curl up and cry and just damn well give up. But you know what I didn’t I kept going and you can to just keep your belief in what you are working toward very strong and in your field of vision every single day.
Because I’m Happy
So let’s get back to the lighter side of life happiness.
Happiness is the emotion we all need more of in our life on a more regular basis. Happiness releases certain chemicals in our brains and our bodies which in turn increases our health both physically and mentally in ways we do not fully understand and quite frankly I don’t really want to know the entire logistics of how and why it is, I just prefer to enjoy the happiness and know it is what it is a pretty damn power good feeling that helps me be more productive, energetic and a much, much nicer person to be around.
So before I ramble on into a blog article the size of the latest best-selling 1,000 page novel I would like to end this post on a very happy note by sharing this video I spoke about at the beginning of this article. Like I said it is a music video that was original shared to me by a very good friend Jill Humphreys and Jill is just the most incredible amazing woman whom I met through a business community I joined 14 months ago. Jill has always been a source of inspiration to me but much more than that Jill is just one of the fantastic friends that I have forged a lifetime bond with whose support kept me going on my really bad days when I just wanted to quit. I would love for you to meet Jill and become better acquainted and you can do this by visiting her at either one of these places. This is Jill Humphreys….
