Your life tells a story. You might not like the beginning of your story and there may be a few chapters you wish you could rewrite. But even though you can’t go back to edit them, you can start where you are and change the ending.
What is the story you want to tell? Is it full of romance and adventure; insights and intrigue; or wonder and awe? If you don’t like how your story is going, it's up to you to do something about it. Every page you turn and chapter you enter in your life is an opportunity to start again. So, be your own hero, add a new plot and write the story you want to tell, starting with changing your thoughts.
By changing our thoughts, we have the power to change our lives. Our thoughts shape our reality because our attitudes, decisions, behaviors and actions reflect our thoughts. Therefore, we must choose our thoughts wisely and discard those that don't serve our highest good or our goals and dreams. This is how we can affect our future and ultimately change our own destiny.
There are six tools that help create more positive thoughts, actions and outcomes in your life: love, kindness, compassion, peace, mercy and affection. By sprinkling your story with these life-changing virtues, you will not only have more positive thoughts, but you will also have a happier disposition, a stronger sense of self, more peace of mind, more courage and confidence, better health, more loving connections and greater success. Therefore, they add more texture to your story and more meaning and purpose to your life.
You are in charge of your life, my Pineapple, so, hold onto your pen tightly and write your own story. To create a real page-turner with an ending that makes you proud, choose your thoughts carefully because the attitudes and actions they create can add those plot twists you desire, fine details and vivid colors to your landscape, and memorable characters for you to cherish for a lifetime. I can’t wait to see where your story leads you!
Live, Love and Lead with Aloha!
