A Discussion on Happiness, Faith and Positive Thinking

Yesterday afternoon I met with some fellow Institute for Integrative Nutrition graduates to talk about our business goals, achievements, concerns and inspirations. On my way to the meeting, a little old man stopped me in my path. He said, “Hey! You’re going to make it.” I replied back with a confused look and a “huh?” Then he said, “Wherever you’re going, you are going to make it.”

That right there gave me the chills, as I took it as he meant that I’d make it in life, in love, in my business. I couldn’t help but think he was sent to tell me that, like an angel of sorts.

When I brought up my story at the meeting, all of the ladies agreed that an angel was sent to deliver that message, that I am going to make it, that in fact I already am making it and may not even realize that now.

After a couple hours of chatting, snacking and discussing our dreams and goals, we ended the meeting with some Law of Attraction cards and my favorite part: a meditation. Anne, the woman who guided the meditation, had us breathe out all of those doubts/fears/setbacks and breathe in new, clean fresh air and positive thinking. She also stressed that at the end of the night while going to bed, be thankful for all the little things that transpired throughout the day. Then in the morning, attempt to set the day with gratitude, open eyes and a fresh start.

After all, you never know what will happen when you set the intention in having a meaningful/powerful/spectacular/successful/____ (fill in the blank) day. So be sure to keep an eye out for all those little “angels” sent to you, be it a phone call you’ve been waiting for or a much-needed dinner date with a good friend. There’s beauty everywhere if you keep an eye out for it.

What good news do you have to share this week? What are some little things that you’re thankful for, that you may not even realize at the time?

    The latest blog post I wrote was on signs, and how the belief that things happen for a reason and signs leading us in the right direction can be just what we need for motivation.

    Sounds like the gentleman who stopped you in your tracks was just that; a sign.
