My daughter Sarah is miles ahead of me when it comes to making the world a better place. She’s like my own personal Guru.
Today she gave me a ‘Complaint free world’ purple bracelet to wear. She said that every time I find myself complaining, gossiping or criticising anything, even if it was in my thoughts, I had to take off the bracelet and swap it onto my other wrist. I had to keep moving the bracelet from wrist to wrist until I could keep it on the same arm for 21 days. Well there’s a challenge! I like a bit of gossip from time to time but I’m not one for complaining or criticising – or so I thought!
I’ve already had to swap it over, twice in 5 minutes, so I’m not the positive thinker that I thought I was!
Scientists believe it takes 21 days to form a new habit. So my goal is to wear the bracelet and not think or talk in a negative way for 21 days consecutively. Each time I fail I need to swap the bracelet onto the other wrist and start again. Eventually I will reach 21 days without a negative thought or word and I will create a life of complete positivity.
I love the whole concept about this bracelet because it really helps you to become aware of the words we use and also what kind of thoughts are ticking over.
Our words are powerful indicators of our thoughts and our thoughts create our reality so by wearing the bracelet reminds us to be careful about what we think about and the words we choose. When we complain, gossip or criticize we are focusing on the negative and we will attract the negative back to us. Focusing on more positive thoughts will change our vibration and this will radiate out into the world changing our reality. Life will be happier, more loving, positive and abundant.
Gandhi said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
