Since becoming part of Positive Focus, Lexington a whole new world has opened up to me. First, I started to test my own inner strength by setting up a group to start with. I wanted to learn more about changing the way we see things and this had to start firstly with myself. Coming from an environment surrounded by negativity, I lacked confidence, self-worth and any sort of belief on been able to do anything different than what I knew. I believed everything that had happened to me in the world everyone was doing to me. I was the prefect victim of my circumstances. It was all I knew at the time. Upon reading Louise L. Hay I read a quote in her book about ‘change your thinking, change your life’ and a strong theme in the book was to LOVE YOURSELF. I started to take these theories on board and all of sudden I knew what I wanted to do with my life. I discovered my purpose was that I wanted to help others, to give back. To show others the way and that they too do not need to be victims of their circumstances.
As I wanted to help others, I started a group here in Lexington and then learned about Positive Focus. What could it hurt, I emailed Carol and became part of a bigger movement on positivity. Carol was probably the first person to come into my life with this amazing energy I was seeking of my own. Now I have a team of anabolic energy as part of my everyday. Anabolic energy is a leader who has the ability to motivate and inspire themselves and others to do extraordinary things. What a new world I was living in. During the course of starting the group and building it up today in a short period of 8 months. My confidence just grows and grows, I am expanding my comfort zone constantly. I am less judgmental of myself and others, I have also have been complimented on my positive energy and that I am inspiring. Amazing that was not the same girl 2 years ago. I uplift others and then me. My self-esteem and self love is far stronger than it has ever been before. I no longer criticize myself, I am internally happy, I am peaceful and my days are filled with a clear mind. The monkey chatter has stopped and when it comes to greet me again, I now have control over my thoughts and I can turn them around into Positive Feedback. Huge when you were and have been heavily criticized your whole life. Enormously freeing. My relationship with myself and others has improved. I have more confidence in the company of the opposite sex, I have more confidence in my current job. I now have the ability to diffuse conflict in my daily living. I take things less personally and this is reflected to me in my outer environment. I am a person who is very Aware, I see awarness to be a huge concept and learning to work from the inside out. The more I work on myself internally the better my outer environment becomes. I have also become more spiritual. I believe there is something greater than ourselves and I love the idea that we are all connected, it gives me great inner peace. Gratitude is another big one that I have now brought into my life, having gratitude helps you accept where you are right now. I see that I have the created everything that is in my life right now but I also have the choice and power to create the life I desire. And once you know this, that is what you will do. I am very much now creating the life I desire. I now live, a happy, joyous, peaceful, fulfilled life, thanks to Positive Focus and its members. I have also learned to be my authentic self.
