How to live a beautiful life? Well that is simple my friends, live in the “can’s”. Life is so extremely beautiful, do not dwell on what you cannot do, focus only on what you can do. I find that so many people complain all too often about what they cannot do, what they cannot eat, what they cannot afford, what they cannot look like, what their children cannot do and so on and so on and so on. I gotta tell you, live in the “can’s” my friends and life will be so much more beautiful and stress free. In fact stop dead in your tracks when you are about to utter the words, “I cannot…” stop right there and think of something quickly that you can do and that you can do extremely well I might add.
Most importantly, while you are living in the “can’s”, do not even give a second thought to anyone else who might say anything negative, just pray for them. Having somewhat different boundaries put in place by my eyesight, I know a thing or two about just what living in the “can’s” can accomplish. Whenever I hear something or begin to think something negative here are some of the things I combat those “cannot’s” with in my brain.
- I can work just as effectively as I used to.
- I can enjoy a play, ballet or the movies.
- I can travel and still enjoy beautiful sites.
- I can put my makeup on without a mirror.
- I can style my hair without a mirror.
- I can cook like a gourmet chef mostly by feeling.
- I can walk with God by my side each and every day.
Why don’t you make your own list, make it detailed and extensive. Focus on the “can’s”. I implore you, the words you speak have so much more to do with stress than you realize. The words you speak are directly from your heart and mind, so if you want to improve your life, here are my own personal thoughts. Pay no mind to naysayers. Pay the utmost care to the words that are coming out of your mouth and focus only on the “can’s”. Actually, if you never utter, “I cannot” ever again, it’ll be fine by me.
