Aroma Therapy      Today’s Positive Thought is by Dr. Libby Adams.

“Forgiveness is continuously letting go of blame and judgement.  It is letting go of past hurts, disappointment and resentment.”

PEOPLE

By: Jay

“People,” my friend said,  “I don’t understand them.”  Continuing he said,  “Here I am having a modicum of success and all of a sudden all those who I offered to help or work with who didn’t want anything to do with me are now knocking on my door.  If I wasn’t good enough for them then, why am I now the one to know?”  This really was hard for him.  Over the years he has offered his talents for free and given his ideas freely to help others out of the goodness of his heart, with no expectation of return.  Some individuals he offered his talents and ideas to, wrote him off as, well, a “unique individual.”  Granted he is different from the average individual, but his heart is big and he did what he did out of compassion hoping that it would inspire them to move forward and if he was included in the moving forward, fine.

Now, as he is moving up the ladder of success these same people are seeking him out for his help and ideas.  So, he asked, “When I was not as successful and offered you help and ideas why did you turn me down and write me off as an oddball?  I have not heard from you in a long time.”  Ah, the judgement of others who are creatively different.  Life is funny that way.  Those who are “different” are often written off until they become successful and then, wham, everybody wants to know them.

There are a selected few he has decided to help who were sincere and honest in their response to his questions.  Others just hung their heads and gave a so-so,  mostly insincere, apology.

As he moves up the ladder of success he is mentoring others and providing them with information on moving forward to greater success in their field of work.

Each of us are uniquely different, each of us have our own unique talents and abilities that can carry forward to greater success in living life.

Next time you see a guy in a pork pie hat, plaid shirt, bow tie, and plaid pants, wearing some unique looking footwear, it may be to your advantage and his to say, “Hi.”  We are always in the right place at the right time meeting the right people, a chance meeting that can be of mutual benefit to you both.  Follow your intuition and you’ll be amazed who you meet on this journey of life.

I’m different and glad to be so.  How about you?

Clutter

   Dr. Jack Addington wrote on goal achievement; in this paragraph he writes about mental clutter.  Sometimes we need to clean our mental house of the clutter of negative and limited thoughts,  beliefs and concepts. 

“The mental house in which we live is very much like our physical house.  It, too, becomes cluttered, cluttered with non-thinking clichés and prejudices.  Prejudice, as the word implies, means pre-judgement, prior judgements, rather than today’s judgement.  Often we let our mental house become a hodgepodge of limitations and negative patterns.  So, the first step in overcoming mental barriers is to et them out in the open and take a good look them.  We need to see them for what they are.”
