Pay Attention!

“Small things make me happy, and I laugh out loud at the silliest of jokes!" ~Divyanka Tripathi

Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer

How can you find the good and the happy in every moment? You simply have to pay attention! Be aware as your life is unfolding in the present moment. It's time to get out of that repetitive behavior, the old "auto-pilot", the often too serious mode of thinking, and bask in the delight of your life that is in front of you now. Have fun with it! Laugh and smile a whole lot more. Try breaking out of any thoughts you have of the past, unless they make you feel really good. Let go of the need to think about where you are going next and what you will be doing, and bring yourself back to NOW.

O.k., now it's time to really pay attention. Are you present right now? Are you here, in this moment? Now... stay for an extra minute or two and look around at all the little things there are to be in awe of. Pay close attention to these things! Because, believe me, when you find a new autopilot of love, gratitude, and fun, your life will take off and will never be the same again!

Indeed, this takes practice. But, it is so well worth it. As you learn to live more mindfully in the moment you are living and experiencing right in front of you, you will begin to feel exhilarated!

How? Our day is a sum of precious moments and experiences. We have lots of moments in our lives that we can more deeply experience in a joyful way. We just have to decide to give them our full attention. First, take a deeper breath, then do it again. Relax, by dropping your shoulders, open your eyes and truly see all the beauty around you. Smile as you “see” the magnificence of the human being you are speaking to, the flower on the tree at the side of the road as you drive by, or the joyful flight of a bird overhead. Just see whatever it is that’s around you right now, wherever you are, and see the perfection in it. This requires that you see only the beauty and blessings it presents to you. Look for the magnificence that the moment holds. You CAN do it!

Even when you have created a moment that you would prefer to be different, you can take the high road. First, give yourself a break, hug yourself and remind yourself that you are doing the best you can. Cry a bit if you need to, or laugh at yourself. We are all different, so whatever works for you is right. Know that the situation is just temporary. Then, be committed to letting it go. Say it out loud. Tell yourself that you want your joy back and mean it. You can do it! Tell yourself, “I love you (your name)" and feel it. Now, send love to the thought or the other who is at the root of your discomfort. It’s always your choice.

Do you want to move forward in love, gratitude, and fun for yourself and others?

Remind yourself that everything is going to work out. Then, “Flip the Switch to Joy," to your preferred outcome, and feel the wonderful possibility of it happening. Be committed to thinking from your heart by finding thoughts that make your heart glow. Those thoughts will show you the way to feeling the joy of the moment. Now, see a picture of what you want and put thoughts of gratitude in your mind, as though it has already happened. Feel love all around you, because it is there . You just have to see it... and feel it. The more you enjoy the moment you are in, the more you will create the next moment the way you want it to be.

Love is at the heart of true fun. When you are truly having fun as you are living in the present moment, feelings of love and calm will always prevail. This is how you get your next experience to be more joyful than ever.

Remember, as much love as you feel right now, know that you can take it to even higher levels. There is no end to the amount of love and joy that we can feel. Why is this so important? The more love you feel consistently and intensely, the more quickly you will become successful in every aspect of your life. And you will have so much fun along the way!

So, love yourself more. Then love everyone and everything else more than you ever have before. As you do, you will see this World in a completely new way. You will see new beauty around you for the first time ever. Now, watch as your level of fun, magic, and miracles goes beyond anything that you could have ever previously imagined!.

Have an absolutely magical week full of love, gratitude, and fun, fun, FUN!
