The Power of Persuading your Mind
What you can accomplish in your thought process of persuading your mind in a positive manner is magical. It is so important to think of first thing in the morning how your day is going to be. I have a story from the past I have thought about recently and am trying to live by it. If you persuade your mind to be happy, and focus on the good things in life, you will get more out of life, in your heart than focusing on all the things that go wrong. When I get old I want to follow the footsteps of a mentor I have in this older women I grew up with that has shaped me into the person I am today. How she has persuaded, and looked at life in such a fashion, who dressed each morning, make up and a smile on her face. I will never forget her jolly laugh every day, as I watched her , cook, and make a beautiful garden. Yet had to face a man that was not so nice to her as he was brought up with Old traditions that the man was the head of the house, and she had no decision making. When he was in his Machismo, yelling “Get me this or get me that” I would walk around the corner, and she would put her finger over her mouth with a Shhhh and a quiet chuckle. She was a women that could handle pressure for the time period we lived in. She didn’t need to make it worse, as the man she had married she was fully aware of who he was, and who she had married. She realized after a while his bark was worse than his bite. He never ever raised a hand, but for those days, it was I was the boss kind of thing.. She was the kind of Lady that was happy even though she didn’t know what was in store for the day. She persuaded herself to love the day, be happy in it as a child sees and ice cream!! She taught me happiness is something you decide ahead of time. It is how you think of a situation, and arrange it, and persuade your mind how you want to feel. You need to decide you are going to love this day! It is a decision you make every morning when you wake. You have choice spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty you have with the parts of you that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do. Each day is precious, and it is your own power of persuasion how you are going to make your life be. You have to think of the “I Am” what I want to be. Old age is like a bank account, you withdraw from what you’ve put in. So my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories. I still have a lot to deposit so I thank My Mamasita for all the wonderful memories she gave me.
