Or should I ask, are you weird enough?
This post is for the weirdos! You know who you are! You are in good company here!
I have recently started a facebook group called Beautiful Mind, Beautiful Life. In this group, we are all about manifesting. I shared a quote in it today, “The greatest revolution in our generation is that of human beings, who by changing the inner attitudes of their ends, can change the outer aspects of their lives.” Marilyn Ferguson.
That quote pretty much sums up this facebook group, not to mention the concept that helped to change my life. If you are not in the group, by the way, get your butt over there! Click here to join!
But like I said, the group is all about manifesting. I was thinking about it the other day, and I believe that in order to really be a good manifestor, you have to be…well….weird. I’m talking, NOT normal.
Let me explain. (Watch the video below or just keep reading).
I was listening to Dr. James Rouse the other day on facebook and he was talking about rising above mediocrity. He described mediocrity as when we forget our truth. It is when we are not living from our soul. It is when we are just going through the motions.
If you go out there into the world, you will see a lot of people just going through the motions. It is as if they are sleep walking. We all do it from time to time. But how do we wake up?
We gotta get a little freaky. Get weird. Break away from the normal.
Ready for TMI?
My fabulously weird husband and I were both in the bathroom the other day. I should mention, my super strange husband is a master manifestor. He just never knew it until he met me. He is actually probably a better manifestor than me, but I digress.
So we’re both in the bathroom, and my husband says the following, “Isn’t it so amazing that we go to the bathroom in this hole, we flush it, and it just goes away. How cool is that?”
I respond, “THAT……is amazing.”
When I say get weird, I mean start appreciating things that normal people probably don’t appreciate.
Start thinking differently from the crowd. Does everyone complain about the weather? Start loving cozy winter and what comes with it. Get excited for Spring. Refuse to complain. Refuse to give in to the low vibes.
Recently I realized that many of the people my husband and I know probably have more financially than we do, but they act like they are in way worse shape. If anyone saw us in public, they would probably think my husband and I have more. Not because of how we dress or anything like that, but by how we act. We see abundance everywhere. We don’t complain about money. We love the money we have and feel very rich (even though we are not rich according to the world’s standards).
I’m not sharing this observation in a judgmental way. I used to be the same. I used to have more but actually be miserable.
The truth is, if you have a roof over your head, the heat on, food in your refrigerator, even a working toilet, you have more than a lot of the world. You have a lot to get freakishly thankful for. And with what you have, you can create anything you want in your future.
So get weird with me! Start loving life! Hear the sounds, smell the smells, feel the vibrations, share the love. The field of Positive Psychology has shown that 10% of your happiness depends on your circumstances. 10%! Is that shocking to anyone? It shocked me. Our outward circumstances do not determine our happiness. We can choose to be weirdly happy now, whatever our circumstances.
I also read recently about another study in Positive Psychology that showed a simple journaling exercise to be as effective as antidepressants in depressed individuals. The exercise? Write down three things that went right each day and why they went right.
That sounds like my Things That Went Right journal!
Let’s get weird and think about all the things that go right! Try it for 30 days with me! When you write down what went right and WHY it went right, you see that you are responsible for many things that go right in your life. The only price you pay for taking responsibililty for your happiness is giving up blaming other people and circumstances.
Are you ready?
Let’s do it! Let me know how the journal exercise goes! And tell me how you will break away from the norm and get weird in order to create your own happiness!
Peace, Love, and Fabulous Weirdness,
