As those of us the coaching profession already know (why else would we enter the profession?), happiness = better health .
And one of the ways to happiness is becoming aware of your less than positive habits, particularly your thoughts and speaking traits.
Why am I bringing this up at Ageless-Sages? Because if you make it a habit of being happy, commit to cleaning up your conversations and surround yourself with the people and things that support that mission, you are far more likely to enjoy the time you spend with your elders. It’s true, it’s true. In fact, you’re more apt to enjoy, accept, embrace ALL of your relationships. Tall order? Not really.
Consider all the examples out in the world who can substantiate that theory. Louise Hay is a great person to start with. She is the Grandmother of positive affirmations and her life is living proof that we are what we think. Then there’s Esther and Jerry Hicks who, through Esther’s channeling of the metaphysical teachers who call themselves Abraham, had this to say:
What makes people decline is that they start forking in the direction that doesn’t allow them to be the receivers of this never-ending Stream of Well- Being. You don’t have to decline… “Happy, healthy, happy, healthy, happy, healthy, happy, healthy, dead!” That’s Esther’s plan…
If you’re interested in being happier, may I suggest starting with the words you use? Yvonne Oswald has a great book called Every Word Has Power that gives actionable examples to cleaning up your way of communicating.
And when you begin to notice that you feel better because you’re allow the flow of more positive emotions, you can’t help but see your relationship with your elders venture into more positive areas as well.
