The Power Of Positive Thinking

Life Is Good Positive Thinking

I am feeling a little low. My right arm, which is injured, unexpectedly got worse yesterday and the medication – antibiotics and painkillers are playing havoc with my system. This morning I woke up to a very-swollen arm. First, I laughed at the sight. Then, remembering it is my arm,  I sobered up. The ice-cold water from the tap helped. I froze, arm mid-way between the running water and my mouth. Ask me why.  My hand did not reach my mouth because of the swelling.

I progressively became more and more alarmed because I don’t want it to get worse..and went to my regular doc. He took one look at it and asked what I had applied. Surprise surprise. I am allergic to betadine this time around. Who knew? Anyway,  I can now stop the painkiller and antibiotic and take only an antihistamine (whew! what a mouthful….and a tummyfull!). I’ve also been prescribed a topical cream – to apply on the crazy arm. Reassured, I returned home.

A positive attitude always works for me. I decided, I would share a quote on positive thinking with you. And dear friends, at the end of the post, I’ve got a free  download for you. Clicking that link lets you directly download the book. Yes. I found it recently and signed up, because it seemed like a grand idea to be able to offer you’all something really nice.

Positive Thinking

On this note, I would like to share a fabulous post by Farnoosh Brock of Prolific Living that I simply adore. Please do read: The Power of Positive Thinking – 22 thoughts to change your life.  It is full of affirmations that will help brighten up your day.

Besides solid encouragement and great resources, Farnoosh also offers a free 21-step confidence building email course – check it out. I really loved it.

And, I would like to share one more gem with you – from a beautiful post titled “On being who I am” written by my friend Terri Sonoda -her powerful words touched my soul.

Positive Thinking

If that is not positive thinking, I want to know what is.

And now, the book download. (No sign up required).

Title: Abundant Thinking
Click the title to download the book in pdf form.  This book is about creating a mindset of positive values so you perceive your life as one full of abundance, not one of lack.

Reminder: In my previous post, “Paradise Found” I mentioned that my friend Joy of Facets of Joy was kind enough to offer me the privilege of gifting her beautiful course, “Gift of Presence: Musings at Sunset“, a 21-day self-study ecourse, a $15 value,  to two of my readers. During the course, you will receive  a daily email with a sunset photo and a heart whisper. Joy weaves energetic intention through each message. Please see more details at Gift of Presence: Musings at Sunset – and if you would like this gift from Joy through me, please let me know in the comments, or via email at vidya at vidyasury dot com

Happy February. Don’t forget to say your “I love you”s

    Sorry to hear you still aren’t feeling too up to it Vidya.

    Yes, the real pain comes through after one or two days, and no matter the amount of medicines you might take, it does take a few days to full go away. Perhaps some kind of balm’s or pain killers could help out.

    Loved the quote you shared, and thanks so much for sharing these wonderful links with all of us, which I shall soon check out.

    Please do take special care of yourself, and give yourself complete rest, which means no blogging too!

    Enjoy your weekend with your family and let them pamper and look after you for a while, such times are rare – so enjoy them. 🙂

      Thank you, Harleena. Just a pain that the allergy spread all over the arm, making it swell up. This too shall pass ;-).

      Strangely I usually blog twice or thrice a week – but now, since I can’t physically move around, the urge to write is strong. Can’t wait to be fully mobile soon!

      Thanks again! Happy February to you!

    Vidya,
    I’m so sorry it’s taking so long to recover! I’m glad you can keep a positive attitude throughout this experience.

    I just love Farnoosh, Terri and Joy! Such wonderful bloggers who posts always inspire. I will head over and read their posts. I somehow missed the part about Joy’s course. So I will also head over to Paradise Found. During my teacher conferences I seemed to miss a lot!

    Great post and as always… inspiring!!
    xoxo

    Hi Vidya,

    Oops… Sending you wishes for a speed recovery dear 🙂 May be I’m late here and you were almost recovered 😀 Anyway take care Vidya.

    Allergic to betadine? Never heard of such though. Glad you met your doctor and else that could be worse.

    I think positive attitude keeps us alive Vidya 🙂 It matters when we face real problems. It’s we, not someone else, who shouldn’t let us down, right? 🙂

    You make me laugh ~ “This morning I woke up to a very-swollen arm. First, I laughed at the sight.” 😀

    Life is always good and keep smiling dear 🙂

    Let me try imitating Harry Potter ~ Esta speedo recovery… Now close your eyes and look at your arm 😉

    Cheers…

    Our thoughts are an energy which manifests and creates what we do want and what we don’t want. What you are focused on is what you make happen.

    If we want to change our reality, the first step is to make that decision 😉

      Andy, welcome! I firmly believe in that philosophy and have seen it happen throughout my life. 🙂 It has taught me in a very gentle but sure way to expect and focus on the outcomes I would like. Moreover, better to channel our energies towards what we want. I am trying to steer my son in the same direction.

      Glad you are here today!
