This week’s positive word
on our A-Z Inspirational Journey …
B is for
I love this word.
I love being around people who are ‘bubbly’; people who ooze personality and character.
How bubbly would you say you are? Do you talk enthusiastically to people? Or do people leave your company feeling drained?
In the book, The Art of Being Brilliant by Andy Cope & Andy Whittaker they talk about ‘mood-hoovers’ –
the quote below is taken from this awesome book:
A mood hoover is, ‘Someone who has a problem for every solution.’
We all know one … or two … or are you that person?
How do you think people see you?
If someone was describing you to another person … would they say …
OR … would they say …
There’s so many people facing different problems every day, but how those problems are thought about can lead them to being the most tragic problem ever or a simple blip in life.
I always look for the positive in any situation and truly believe that things happen for a reason. The Law of Attraction shows us that we bring positivity or negativity into our lives, so when something happens that I feel is negative, I search for the positive outcome.
A situation may be occurring that you feel is completely negative in your life, but try looking at it from a different angle, ask yourself … ‘Why is this happening to me?’ I don’t mean, ‘WHY? WHY? WHY ME??!!’ As you scream to the heavens, I mean, ask yourself, ‘Why is this happening?’ ‘What am I learning from this situation?’ Tell yourself you can gain something from this.
Here’s this week’s therapeutic creative writing exercise:
HOW TO DEAL WITH A SITUATION THAT MAY HAVE BURST YOUR BUBBLES
Write down what happened/what is happening and how it made you feel/feeling.
Write down 5 things that taught you a lesson.
Write down 5 things that have made you a better person from this situation.
You may feel that you haven’t learnt anything, but you will have you just need to look closer. If this means doing some ‘free-style’ writing, this means just letting go, just write, just let rip on your thoughts. Once you’ve got that off your chest, write down what you would like to happen from the situation.
Imagine you are in the place you want to be. Imagine being happy. Smile. Keep smiling all day. Think of yourself in that situation where you feel happy. Your troubles are over. Your life is your own. Imagine … play the game and smile. Everyone you come into contact with smile at them.
Further down, I will give you some more tips on becoming the bubbly person that people not only want to be around … they want to be! They want to be you.
So look for the positive in any adverse situation you are going through.
Take this and turn it around so that you can project these feelings out to others.
It maybe something that isn’t as serious as you feel it is …
For example, a little blip happened to me last week …
My bank card got cloned!!! Now I’ve heard people really stressing about this happening and it becoming the biggest deal ever … if you do an internet search you’ll find lots of people becoming angry about this and really throwing their negativity out there. I don’t see the point in getting angry over something I can’t do anything about. The most I can do is protect my card, which I have done, but it still happened.
The point of this story was how I turned it into a positive and was actually buzzing that my bank account was chosen!
Buzzing? How the ‘bleep’ can you be happy your account was cloned???? Hands up if those were your thoughts?
Here’s why it was a positive in my life … Before my knowledge of the Law of Attraction, when I didn’t realise I was the cause of my negative life. We had no money, so there were no pennies for anyone to take, so it wasn’t something I even thought about, let alone worried about.
So when I discovered that someone had spent £104 on train tickets and £59.64 on Pizzas – I was quite pleased I had the money in the bank for them to use! There was money in there, it was such a lovely feeling? It really made me smile.
Now don’t get me wrong, it was a little inconvenient. I was on the phone for over 3 hours (after an hour and 20 minutes I got through to someone, who agreed it was fraud, then he put me on hold and I got lost back in the system for over hour again, but I just focused on getting it sorted. What was the point of screaming at the delightful music and at the woman who automatically kept thanking me for my call!! Oh I’m not a robot and I did beg that someone, ‘pls, pls, pls answer!’ But getting angry would have just made my head hurt. It was also inconvenient that I had no bank card for a few days while I awaited another one … but hey ho … it’s been refunded and all is good.
This situation could have left me in a serious bad mood, I could have felt so much anger to those that had decided to commit fraud, but what was the point? I know that my anger would have led to negative thoughts which in turn would have led to more negative life events. Small things in life being made into something bigger than it really is, leads to more negativity in our lives. I often look around me and at other peoples’ lives and understand how a negative personality does actually lead to more negativity. Where as a bubbly and lovable person sees the good in life … always!
The thing is ….
So ask yourself how do you view life?
When you are talking to others, what do you hear yourself saying?
Would you like people to leave your company thinking …
Be the person that people don’t forget for the right reasons …
Still finding it hard to just simply be happy, let alone bubbly?
Here’s 5 tips on how to be bubbly
Wishing you love, happiness and fulfilment always
