Write a new scenario for yourself. In this story, you are the self-confident, attractive, loving, and lovable heroine (or hero). You always get what you choose. You choose success, wonderful loving relationships, loving friends, a fulfilling job or career, etc.
You can change your script by changing your thoughts and becoming the person you want to be. Become the kind of person you would like around you. If you have been crying out for love, be more loving. Never mind the meticulous dissection of others’ relationship with you to see if by any chance, they are acting out one of your fears (rejecting you, abandoning you, lying to you, etc.).
Change your expectations, your thoughts. Stop expecting disappointments and let-downs at every corner. Start living each day joyously, like a child that always expects wondrous surprises, and finds them in little things like ant hills and blades of grass, or a smile and a kind word.
Be thankful for the good in your life. What you focus on gains importance and expands. So focus on a joyful expression of life. Be thankful for things we sometimes take for granted, like flowers, butterflies, sunshine, rain, a smiling face on the street, a roof over your head, food to eat, etc.
Let the face that smiles be yours because the world is a mirror. When you smile and put love in your heart, you see and feel it reflected all around you.
Don’t expect the world to change first. Start with yourself. Focus on the beauty in your life, however small you may feel it is.
Put a smile in your heart, however shaky that smile may be. Don’t be afraid of the past or of the future. Become a child again expecting that everyone that comes to you is bringing a gift.
Look for the beauty that is to be found in everyone and everything. That is the gift waiting for you. “Seek and ye shall find.”
Make sure you are seeking what you really desire. It is there waiting for you.
It’s up to you—the present is yours to discover.
