When I was a young girl, one of the mothers in our neighbourhood used to often shout at us: “Quit your bellyaching!”. Her goal was to get us to shush because she didn’t want to hear it.
But I now realize how profound an admonition that was. I have found that the more I complain about something in my life, the more of it I get. That is the essence of the law of attraction.
The law of attraction is impersonal; it merely acts on what you’re paying attention to because it thinks you must want more of that.
Don’t give your attention to things you don’t want more of.
Easy enough to say, easy enough to understand, but doing it, ah, there’s the rub. Oh how we love to tell and re-tell the story of someone who’s done us wrong. It feels good to have others agree and commiserate with us and validate our feelings, doesn’t it?
Or does it?
Try this ONE thing
What if we just quit talking about it, cold turkey? Zipped our lips and refused to relive it, period!
A far better choice is to turn our attention to what IS working in our lives, what’s good and pure, what makes us happy, what’s ahead of us.
