Good evening fellow co-creators :)
I have to emphasize the importance of pivoting once again today. I probably won't stop talking about this practice. It got me out of my negative attitude that I held this morning and afternoon. Now it's evening time and I feel my spirits are up again.
Even though I've "just" started my journey, I've come a long way. I try to journal the more positive aspects but that doesn't mean I don't come across rough patches. Today was one of those days. It was difficult to tap into the reality of my desired appearance despite the magical day I had yesterday. For some reason I didn't continue pivoting because I was riding on that high from yesterday. However, the high doesn't last forever! It just gets longer and more frequent with each "low" you pass through. Learn from my mistake and don't try to ride the high forever. Negative thoughts will return and you must keep pivoting no matter.
With pivoting, it's really important not to deny your negative feelings/dislike of what you're currently experiencing. You should absolutely acknowledge them because what you resist, persists. But after acknowledging them, focus your attention on what you want. It'll be nearly effortless if you've pivoted correctly.
The resistance I experienced today I believe is inevitable for many of us on this journey. Constantly not seeing the physical manifestation of our desire can wear us down and make our faith crash, which is what happened with me today despite the strong faith I had yesterday. But you should pivot, you'll feel your faith increase organically without having to "push it". Remember, when you feel down over having your current appearance, you are giving it attention. I mentioned this quote by Abraham yesterday but it's a very profound one. The reason we focus on what we don't want is because we think "it's true therefore I believe I should give attention to it." This goes both ways, good and bad. And if we don't believe in our desired appearance, we won't pay attention to it. It's all about cultivating positivity, therefore on-going faith, therefore attention on what we want. As you can see, many LOA concepts are intertwined.
And as always, the solution is always to keep going! I felt many times to give up but I won't :)
