Break The Complaining Cycle ?

We all have those moments when life feels a little harder, when things tend to pile up or when we feel overwhelmed and stressed that we just want to vent and complain.

It’s ok to have those feelings and allow our emotions to be released, we all need that. The problem is that we often don’t know how to process our emotions in a positive way and we instead start complaining about our circumstances. And as we know, complaining only adds negativity to what we’re already experiencing.

Most of the time we don’t realize when we’re complaining, yet little by little it becomes a habit and the more we COMPLAIN the more we REMAIN in that situation. There’s a story in the Bible of the Israelites looking toward their promised land, it was the land of their dreams. But because they complained about almost EVERYTHING on their journey they remained in the desert circling the same mountain for 40 years. This was a trip that could’ve taken only about 2 weeks! But the complaints only kept them focused on the negative rather than looking ahead toward the place they were trying to reach.

Do you notice that this happens to us in our lives as well? The more that we complain the more we remain in the same space. This can be in regards to anything; our relationships, our bodies, finances, self esteem, jobs etc. It is in complaining that we remain focused on the negative. We continue to “circle the same mountain” over and over again and year after year we find ourselves in the same situation or worse.

So, once again we’re given the opportunity to choose for ourselves where we want to be. Do we want to continue the complaining cycle and remain the same? Or do we want to change that and consciously turn it into something positive for us? There’s a remedy to complaining that actually works and brings lasting positive results. Since we know that what we focus on EXPANDS OR GROWS then why not allow something positive to grow within us. This is what having an attitude of Gratitude will do for us. ❤️

No matter how difficult life may be, there’s always something to be thankful for. We’ve read about how gratitude pushes people forward. It’s one of the key habits to success and one of the most important attributes that God has asked us to focus on. He’s asked us to be thankful in all things. ❤️ Gratitude is the quality of being thankful; the ability to have the readiness to show appreciation for all that we have and to return kindness as well.

One of the best ways for us to get rid of complaining is to practice being a little more conscious and aware of what we’re feeling. Taking some deep breaths, redirecting our energy and keeping a gratitude journal where we can write down our top three things we’re thankful for each day, is super helpful and healing. It is also a great opportunity to write down some of our challenges and difficulties and be able to take a moment to recognize that those experiences can also help us to be a little more polished, to grow and develop.

Once we’re able to focus on gratitude instead of complaining, our world will begin to change. We won’t be so easily affected by the world around us, but instead we will want to radiate a little more peace, love and light. Not only for ourselves, (because we’ve chose it) but also for others as well. This way we will not be going around the same mountains ? but instead we will be moving forward toward a life that is happier, more fulfilling and peaceful. It is our choice 😉

So this week I would like to challenge you to notice how often you are complaining as well as how often other people around you complain. Try to focus on changing that negative environment into something positive ( By counting your blessings, or the things that you’re thankful for) God will see you effort and will reward you for it. ? Try it for yourself and notice a difference.

Hope that you can make it to class this week and allow yourself to have a moment to grateful for the body that you have and for the opportunity that you have to do something good for yourself & to strengthen your body, mind and spirit. I hope that you can join us this week! Specially since class will be canceled next week. (Jan 27th). Stay focused, keep doing your best and take it ONE DAY AT A TIME! ☀️don’t let negativity get in your way, focus on the good and notice how it will GROW in your life. ?❤️??

Rest for your Soul ?

As we experience the challenges, difficulties and heaviness of the world around us, we realize that we really do have a choice.

We can either choose to allow more negativity to enter our minds and hearts, we can continue listening and trusting the many voices of the world. Or instead, we can choose to have a moment to take some deep breaths, be more present, slow down a little, focus on what we can control and most importantly TRUST IN GOD more than men. ❤️

God has given us promises and tools to bring us inner peace and to truly bring rest to our souls. But the question is; Do we genuinely show God that we believe Him? & How willing are we to look within ourselves and to look toward God for inner peace and rest from the burdens we may be carrying?

Mathew 11:28-30 Says

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest into your souls.

For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

He wants you to come to Him. He invites YOU! & guess what? you get to CHOOSE for yourself. He tells you that you can learn of Him, you can know Him better. & by doing so, you will learn that He is a GOOD GOD. A God who is never blind to your tears, who knows your pain and all of the difficulties you’re going through. He is never deaf to your prayers and is always right there ready to comfort you in the way that you personally need it. He Hears YOU! He sees You! He knows you and loves you more than you’ll ever know. ?

We all know that life is short and temporary. Each day really is a gift and a new opportunity that God gives us to do better. ? Do we want to be constantly triggered by all that is going on in the world around us?… Or do we want to gain more inner stability, peace and strength in God? He is ready to provide it to any who SEEK HIM. The more that we’re able to align ourselves to Him the less fear we will have in the world and the better we will be able to make choices and handle the difficult situations that may come into our lives.

With God we can do all things and with Him we are WAY MORE STRONGER, PEACEFUL AND STABLE. ??? We all know that our world needs a little more of that. and as our minds and hearts are more peaceful and stable we can be a light in the lives of our families, loved ones and the world around us. ?

So, remember He’s got you! & HE ALWAYS WILL. You’ve got this! Come to Him & you will receive peace and rest. Focus on the light, love, peace and all the good that you find in TODAY and feel the difference. ?❤️??

Hope that you can make it to class tonight at 5:00pm to continue on your journey of strengthening your Body, Mind and Spirit. ?This is a little therapy for all of us. 🙂 So, make it happen for yourself and see the benefits from it. ? ??‍♀️?

The Focus Of Your Life ?

As 2021 begins I’ve been thinking about the lessons learned form 2020.

I noticed that I could focus on all the negative things that happened…but as I looked back at my journal for 2020 I remembered that my goal for the year was to record how I could see the hand of God in my life or in the life of my family throughout the year.

I’m thankful that I had recorded the ups and downs of 2020. We all had tears, experienced fear, challenges and difficulties. But, I also noticed that it’s sometimes during the darkest or hardest moments of our lives that we can be a little more polished, we can gain new wisdom that ultimately blesses us and allows us to grow.

As I looked back at what I recorded in my journal, I noticed that I did write about the negative things that were happening. But to my surprise as I kept reading the different experiences I realized that my journal was filled with all of the ways in which I was able to recognize the hand of God in my life and the life of my family. It was beautiful for me to see our 2020 miracles, the answered prayers, the amazing people who were angels to us and all of the other positive things that came from this “Negative year” I realized that I had placed my focus on the positive things, Which was very hard to do in 2020, right? But as I noticed how focusing on the positive really helped me, I remembered the words from President Russell M. Nelson which say;

The joy we feel has little to do with the circumstances of our lives and everything to do with the focus of our lives.”

Of course, if I had only journaled about the negative things I would’ve missed seeing the hand of God during 2020. I wouldn’t have recognized the kindness, service and love from so many people around us and I would’ve missed the beauty and the lessons that 2020 brought to my life and the life of my loved ones. It really does matter what YOU CHOOSE TO FOCUS ON.

I’m thankful that the 2020 challenges lead me to receive my certification as a Mindfulness coach. I learned throughout the year not to seek for peace externally but internally. I learned to be more present daily and I began viewing the world differently than I had in my entire life. My connection to God and to others was deeper and I began to notice that Divine light all around me. I realized that NO ONE, & NOTHING can control the way we CHOOSE to react to situations. It will always be up to each one of us to choose how we want to react. Do we want to focus on the good? Do we want to connect to that divine inner light within us? Do we want to strengthen our relationship with God more?

As we tap into that inner light and connect to it more often it will allow us to become more present, to disconnect more easily from the outter world and instead gain the peace that we need for each day, and each moment. The more we search internally and allow ourselves to connect to God directly, the more confident we’ll feel. The easier life will be to navigated and we will see that we will be less reactant to the world around us. We will instead radiate more of that divine light not only to help ourselves emotionally and spiritually in times of difficulties, but also to be a light to our family, our communities and the world around us. ?

So, this 2021 allow yourself to be way more loving and kind to yourself. Look for the positive lessons learned from 2020 and move forward from here. Be willing to have your eyes open to seeing Gods hand in your life daily. Allow yourself to connect to Internal self more often to gain more emotional and spiritual strength to keep you moving forward. Give yourself time to breathe deeply! Give yourself the gift of letting go of any internal pain that may be holding you back. Focusing on your emotions from the past or the future isn’t going to do much good RIGHT NOW. So, focus on being a little more present and on welcoming more peace and love into your life . When your internal world is at peace, you’ll feel it touching all other areas of your life. ???

So, Set your goals, systems or intentions for 2021 coming from a place of LOVE toward yourself. Think about how you want to SHOW UP for yourself this year & try to do it in a way more positive, peaceful, kind and loving way. ? YOU DESERVE THAT! ?

Look for Gods hand in your life. Remember that He knows the plans that He has for you. He won’t leave you comfortless, He will give you peace. Do your part each day and He will do His. He loves you and wants to continue to be here for you. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND IN THAT DIVINE INNER LIGHT WITHIN YOU. ??? You can do way more than you imagine with God by your side. So, Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths. As you choose to Focus on the GOOD, to TRUST GOD & to inhale and invite more Peace, Love, and kindness into your daily life. You’ll see that 2021 will be a beautiful year. YOUR FOCUS IS YOUR CHOICE. & THAT FOCUS CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING! ?????

Hope that you can join us in class on Wednesdays at 5 PM. To keep you motivated to accomplish your goals and to help you feel more internally balanced, stronger and peaceful.
