It has been a few days since I've entered into this journal. The last few days have been up-and-down for me. I have been working very long hours at work and having trouble shaking his tired feeling. I have not meditated for a few days nor have I been practicing the law of attraction like I should be. Two days ago I woke up feeling tired and by my feelings set myself up for a bad day. It was Labor Day weekend in the restaurant that I work in was very busy. Sunday two of my cooks called out which left me with only one cook needless to say it was a very long and hard day. But I made it worse by being negative in my thoughts. After work on the way home I stopped to buy a hamburger and realized that my wallet was missing at that point I was very angry and upset and I stopped myself and reset. It took a few minutes for me to calm down but the rest of that day was great I took my son fishing and saw a beautiful sunset and enjoyed every moment. Thinking about the bad day I just had I realized I could change the way my day was going by thinking differently and that I probably attracted that bad vibes that got my wallet lost. The next morning Labor Day Monday I woke up and made myself in a good mood. I enjoyed the ride to work and I knew it was going to be a great day. When I got to work, again I only have one cook because the other two cooks had quit and it was very busy like it was Sunday but everything went smooth and I actually enjoyed myself the entire day. After work I stopped at a gas station to get a drink and the guy behind the counter handed me my lost wallet. I told the guy that he just made my day, but knew in my head that I had already made my day because I chose to have a good day today. I had already canceled all my cards in my wallet but just having my wallet back was a good feeling. I decided to go out for a few drinks something I haven't done in years and ran into a lot of old friends and had a very good time. The lesson I learned was no matter what situation you are in it is possible to change your way of thinking and become happy, no matter what. Sometimes you have to force yourself to get rid of negative thoughts and feelings and searched deep inside for your inner peace. One of the goals I set for myself was to help other people and try to at least help one person every day. I have found this goal to be the most rewarding. I have always helped people but have never gone looking for people to help. I realize that the universe will send people in need to me. Even the little things like slowing down to let someone merge into your lane or holding the door for someone I believe adds happiness to your life it may not be instantaneously but what you put out you will receive back. I have a truckload of good deeds stored away somewhere and even when I am having a bad day I still help others when I can. I will practice the law of attraction to the best of my ability for the next few days. I will write about the results in a few days.
