Practicing shifting my thoughts away from the negative

Hi Brooke,

I’ve been in Scholars since October. I’ve had a big breakthrough in the last few weeks. I tend to be very negative (have started to realize this through doing this work) and of course its been impacting my life in a negative way.

So now whenever I notice myself thinking negative thoughts, I shift them and refocus them on something positive. If I look for it, I can usually find it. Its been making a huge difference in my life. I’ve really noticed this at work where I’m constantly refocusing away from the negative and towards the positive. There’s a colleague of mine who has been really annoying and I found myself getting really upset even when I wasn’t around her because I kept thinking of her and working myself into a frenzy about her. LOL But now when my mind goes there, I tell myself that I don’t want to waste my time thinking about her and try to shift it away to something else. Its been working really well.

But now this month’s homework is really having my take this to a whole new level. I’m single and just haven’t been able to find someone that I’m excited about. I had a setback with someone recently who “ghosted” me as soon as he got back from a really long work trip. I had really had high expectations about him so when he totally dropped the ball, I found myself looping back into major negativity about men. Same ol same ol… They are all lame. There aren’t any great ones out there. I’m not attracted to anyone. When I find someone exciting, he turns out to be passive and lame.

Anyway, this month’s theme is perfect for me and the timing couldn’t be better. I’ve started to practice my new thought which is:

I am in a wonderful, loving, fun relationship with a great, attractive man who adores me and whom I adore.

Wow, that’s it. I can’t believe I just wrote that. Trying this on…

Thank you!!!
