First, let me tell you background of this story. It was a start of a new year. Appraisals and Promotions are being discussed everywhere in the company I work for. I was happy. There was nothing stressful in my life. I used to do another part-time job to increase my monthly budget so that I could live easily.
And then one day, probably Monday, I woke up. I finished my chores and started getting ready to go to work. On my way to work, I got an accident. I was injured and I got depressed because of that accident. Although it was not so worse but it still made me think negative about some days ahead. I reached office. I was there and then , someone from the place where I work part-time, called me and told me that my services are no longer required by them. It made me more depressed. I was getting negative thoughts regarding my future days. Then, after some time , my senior at work told me that appraisals are not being sent due to some issue. May be, the company will not send it this year. I was shocked when I heard that. I was under so much pressure. I became pessimist. Anyhow, whatever I did that day, turned bad for me.
I came back home. I finished everything and went to bed. I lied down. Then I started thinking about what happened today. I realized something. Something that made my eyes open. I analyzed the whole situation and the conclusion that I got was so helpful ( I will tell you later , how?). All that bad things that happened today was because my thoughts became negative. My mind was not thinking positive. When I first got depressed, it attracted negative vibe and then, that negative vibe attracted more negative energy and the second bad incident happened and it went on.
After realizing that my thinking became so negative, I closed my eyes. I imagined that my brain was rusted. In my imagination , I started cleaning my brain . I cleaned and cleaned until all the rust went off. And then I started imagining the positive outcome of every situation.
The very next day , I started my day in normal routine. When I got back to office, they told me that appraisals are on their way. I found an alternative for my part-time job. And I recovered from the injuries faster than expected. In short, everything went right.
The conclusion here is that the life treats you as how you think it will. Positive thinking can really make you live in peace. The mission should not be “to survive”. The mission should be “to live”. Don’t let a bad incident or a bad thought carry you away. Even if something worse happens, just relax. Calm down. There is still something positive in it. Think about it. Block all the dark energies. Do not let them prevail you.
