Several months ago I began writing notes to myself. I wrote them in big, bold marker on yellow notepaper and stuck them on my computer screen so that I could be reminded of the message that I wanted myself to hear. Eventually, I removed them and tucked them away. I saved them so that I could refer to them at some point in the future and reflect on what I had been thinking when I wrote the note.
They are mostly words of encouragement taken from something I may have been listening to at the time. I’m one who always has a saying or a personal mantra that I keep with me, so this is something that is familiar to me. One of the mantras I have repeated for years is this; “My body is in a constant state of renewal. I am happy, I am healthy, I feel terrific and I have an attitude of gratitude”.
Now, this mantra might be corny to some, but consider the self-talk that all of us have going through our heads every minute of every day; “I should have said this, I shouldn’t have done that. I’m so stupid.” It is important to clear our minds and be in the nothing. To be one with creation, the universe, or whatever the popular term is today. When the mind is empty it is the perfect opportunity for thoughts to seep in and take hold. Unfortunately for us, the negative self-talk comes easier than the positive affirmations.
These random notes mean something to me. I wrote them for me. They are insights that I had on a certain day when I was in a certain frame of mind. It is as simple as that. I will share them here for anyone who would like to read them because I believe that someone may find value in the words. Maybe not everyone, maybe only one person, I don’t know. What I do know is that that one person that may gain a valuable insight because of some random note and may hear it at the exact right time, in the exact right place and spoken (or written) by the exact right person.
Who knows? Now might not be the right time. It may not be the right place. Maybe I’m not the right person to deliver the message, but I’m putting it out there. It is up to the reader if it means anything or not. I don’t know that, but I do know that sharing this brings me great joy. Really, that is the only thing that any of us can hope for; to do something that brings us joy.
I hope you have enjoyed reading this as much as I have enjoyed sharing it. Come back and visit if you feel inclined and read some on the Notes To Self.
