As I've been reading and studying about the law of attraction through reading The Secret and related texts, a new door has opened to me about how to approach every day life, circumstances and relationships. In the daily adventure to personal
growth, I've learned that taking time each day to achieve personal alignment is at the center of your ability to have a harmonious existence within the your environment.
People and gurus have touted the benefits of "inner peace" for centuries, and I'm only just now realizing the truth behind it. Each day should begin with a practice of gratitude for the good in your life. Gratitude then opens the door to awareness of self. From awareness, you have the ability to choose love, happiness and joy. When you can choose love, anything is possible in your life.
This concept can seem far-fetched and esoteric for many, especially for those who are recovering "Type A" personalities like me. I'm a recovering control freak and loving every second of it. It is honestly still very hard, and I have to practice releasing the things that are out of my control daily. I struggle with patience the most. I want what I want, and I want it NOW!
I get frustrated and grow out of alignment when I'm feeling rushed or impatient. This disharmony is evident to me and others around me. I'll confess that I'm not patient, and maybe that's the first step to learning patience. Now I aim to envision myself as a patient person and see it manifest in my life and relationships.
As I continue on this journey of releasing control and choosing love, gratitude, generosity, happiness and joy, I encourage you to discover your personal alignment, too because you can!
