Creating A Positive Future For Myself

05 July 2016 Written by 

“Instead of asking for things to be different when facing difficulty, pray to know what is true. Ask to see clearly the way things are. Then it becomes possible to choose to cooperate with the highest good.” ~ Ellen Grace O’Brian

In sharing with a close friend this week regarding an upcoming situation which will be challenging for me, she suggested that I imagine the outcome that I want. In other words, come up with the best case scenario, not the worst case scenario. An interesting thought. 

Can I create the outcome I want? Can I choose to cooperate with the highest good as Ellen O’Brian suggests? Why am I naturally inclined to visualize a negative outcome rather than a positive one? Is this “awfulizing”?  And why do I tend to do that?

If I live in the moment, I can dismiss my past history and instead create and visualize the future that I desire. I can align myself with a positive outcome and move forward toward that end.

I will ponder the possibility of my best case scenario and bring that into focus in my mind. I can choose to play that movie in my head and in my heart. And that might make all the difference!

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
