I am ready for Power Thought 7: I am content and emotionally stable. Tha means I am also half way through the program. At this point, I think to tweak my methods a little. I spend a lot of time every week making an abundance of signs with my Crayola markers and the posting the new power thought all over the place. I don’t really see the signs that much, except for the one that is posted on the fridge, but it’s gotten to be a habit. The one thing that I really want to do more of and haven’t since the first week, is to take time and meditate and write about the week’s power thought and how I can apply it to my life.
This week’s power thought is: I am content and emotionally stable. Joyce Meyer’s shares some practical ways to make this thought a part of your life in her book Power Thoughts and the chapter devoted to this particular idea.
One good thing to do is to keep a list of all of your blessings–a long list of everything you are thankful for. I have started a list, and I hope to reread it and add to it through the week.
I also can practice the power of “thank you”–that means being thankful in all circumstances, and focusing on the blessings, and what is going right instead of what is going wrong. This kind of thinking creates contentment and stability.
I am also thinking about specific areas in my life where I tend to get discontent and instable–for me this happens mainly internally. I get impatient or frustrated with myself. I am not content with my progress. I get down on myself or upset about situations in my life. I want to be more secure and I want to treat myself kindly, and remain calm in all circumstances! Yes, those are very big goals. I am going to begin to work toward them this week, and I will get there.
So, no big markered poster board signs this week; instead I have renewed my committment. I will renew my mind. I will renew my mind this week with Power Thought 7 in particular: I am content and emotinally stable.
