Focus on Others

We put on the news and we are inundated with negativity.  Stories of death and illness, unemployment and homelessness, anger and violence.  Scientists and doctors telling us how important it is for us to control this virus.  Knowing it is the right thing to do, it is still very difficult to heed their advice and stay home during this holiday season.

I have decided that I am going to try and keep my focus on other people in the hope that I will remain at peace throughout this difficult time.

“Focus on an ocean of positives, not a puddle of negatives.” 

Kevin Ansbro

I am working at sending positive energy for healing, prosperity, peace, love, and harmony to others.  This is the best gift I can give to the people I love.  Everything, including our bodies and our thoughts, are energy. Knowing how my thoughts can affect my own body, actions, and life, it is possible that  my positive thought energy will have a favorable effect on other’s lives too. It certainly won’t hurt.

It is by focusing on others that I can remain peaceful in my own heart and head. The loneliness, sadness, and depression can be like a black cloud threatening to creep across my mind.  When I keep my focus on others and their needs, I feel as if I am of service.  This, in turn, helps me maintain my mental health.  

“Your inner thoughts aren’t truly hidden. Their essence reflects in your energy. Energy speaks what you don’t.” 

Drishti Bablani

Keeping my focus on others helps me to put my troubles in perspective and realize just how fortunate and blessed I am.  It is very easy to feel sad or depressed about our current situation but there is always someone who has things more difficult that we do. By recognizing this, I can keep a positive mental state.

I also keep in my mind that, “This too shall pass.”  I work on remaining present in every day because the one thing this pandemic has taught me is that life is forever changing and we never know what tomorrow will bring.  

The positive energy and love we give to others, heals our own wounds.

I look forward to the day when I can be together with my loved ones again.  It will be a combined celebration of every event we missed during this pandemic – births, birthdays, and holidays.  What a party that will be!
