illness or death of a loved one that's big heavy traffic junior commute it's not a big deal unless you choose to make it a big deal i'm not suggesting that negative emotions will never happen or you should ignore them but you don't have to focus on them and ride them like a wave into the next day room about a bad experience or annoying situation for days is unhelpful for moving you back on track to a positive mindset three tips for how to let go of the little things for years i ve been working on building a positive mindset which includes letting go of the little things most recently i am a student with rhonda grins fearlessly life course certification programme through my studies i ve been able to more fully ingrained the following habits of intention and gratitude and my daily life and help they might also help you gain more energy join one have gratitude for what you do have

you think or plan things to go in a certain way and then you feel disappointed when things don't go as plant expectations are focused on results that people believe should happen some examples of expectations are expecting your spouse do the dishes after you cook dinner is making your boss to recognise the extra hours he put in our work expecting friends to help you move as rhonda bryn teaches in her book intentions are the antidote to expectations living with intention cannot be stop letting little annoyances ruin your day here's a snippet from the book fearless living that explains what living with intention means quote intention is living purposefully on purpose with purpose proactively responsibly and intuitively while we intend we erase should from our role capillary there's a committed process versus the results you become willing to practise a new way of seeing and acting in your everyday exchanges and quote living within
tension will help you purposely focus on the process of having good day but the responsible body of how your day goes into your hands and shift your focus to start seeing that things are happening for you not to you intentions are processed driven because they help you practice do purposely choose how you'll be present in your day you commit to the process not the results here are some examples of intentions today i am willing to practice seeing the positive aspects of my spouse term will into practice being organised and productive at work today i'm willing to practice being patient with my friends in those examples the intent in practice a process not to have your heart set on a specific result contingent on someone else instead of focusing on what's going wrong proactively decide was important to you and then send intention to get there and so did he caught up on the things we don't have or annoying
behaviors of those around us by focusing on your daily intention matters into your own hands and decide where to focus your precious time and energy three nuclear your energy where you have control quote how people treat you is there karma how you react is yours wayne dire powerful quote by self help growing dire we can control others action so do you want to waste your time and energy try we do only have control over our son oh and how we act your inner joy is your responsibility direct yourself laying the blame name for the things that aren't the way you want them in your life look within yourself to figure out why you're any less than who you want to be choices quote b miserable or motivate yourself whatever has to be done bits who is your choice when dire because i'm what you do have rather than what you don't have reached for more than you
right now and make choices to reach your dreams no matter what happened in the past you have the power to change your experience from this point forward you can't change another person but you and change yourself are you choosing to react to others around you in a manner that helps you to create more of what you want what you spend your energy are getting upset about things that are out of your control doesn't serve you well it'll bring you down a path that more feel good and mid isn't worthy of your energy remember what you think about you bring about you strategies and attentions to change her thoughts one thought met a time she has to spend your energy focusing on good things that happened for you sir you are likely to bring more good to your life if you wake up later our own how are you going to react are you going to let you have a downward spiral on your entire day are you going to send an intention to practice being gentle and forgiving with yourself today be a better version of yourself tomorrow
