Mocha Angels 365. Day 49.

Day Two of work.

The second step of becoming deeply fulfilled by all that you do is to bless your current job with love. You don’t have to believe what you are saying. Just say it anyway. Bless the building, the parking lot, the elevators, the equipment, the doors, the floor, and most important, the people who work there and the customers who walk in the door. Bless everything and everyone in the building with love.

If there’s a co-worker who bothers you, again, bless him or her with love. If she is critical, affirm she is loving and full of praise. If he is grouchy, affirm that he is cheerful and fun to be around.

Why? Because this isn’t about them. It’s about you. You have to be the one to start changing your consciousness about your job. Try it. See how it makes you feel. And this isn’t a one-time occurrence. Repeat as long as you work there.

Up next, part three.

Mocha Angels 365. Day 48.

I’m going to talk about work for the next few days. This is based on Louise Hay’s concepts in You Can Heal Your Life.

Wouldn’t you love to be deeply fulfilled by all that you do? The joy and meaning that would bring to your life would be spectacular.

The first thing to do is to check your negative thinking about your current job:

  • I hate this place.
  • My boss is an ass.
  • These people get on my last good nerve.
  • I don’t make enough money.
  • I am so tired of y’all I could just spit.
  • My co-workers suck.
  • Who hired these people?
  • This is way more work than I expected.
  • I am so tired of this s@%!
  • I work here? How did I end up here? WTF?
  • This is where I spend eight hours a day? Is this my life? Again…WTF?
  • (Feel free to add to this list in the comments because y’all know you’ve said the same things! And if you haven’t, I’d like to hear that too!)

We’ve all been there. I know I have. I have said variations of those sentences myself. Negative, defensive, angry thoughts about your job aren’t going to help. Even if you get a new job, you’ll have the same problems because you’ll bring the same thinking to the new job.

Change the way you think about the job you have now. Check your thoughts about it. What do you say when you complain to your partner or friends about your job? Awareness is the first step to change. No matter how crappy your job is, and it very well could be, you must make the internal change first.

Second step coming up tomorrow. Let me know what you’ve been saying about your current job. Anonymous replies are fine. I’m not trying to get anyone in trouble! (((hugs)))
