Over the next 12 weeks, I will be presenting an aspect of positivity or mindfulness for us to focus on. These are all topics that I am working on myself and focusing on myself to achieve a happier mindset and calmer state of being. I’ll have a blog post each week and then quotes on my social media networks to support that week’s theme. For more support, join my Positivity Facebook Community. The 12 weeks will all be on my Positive Thinking Page.
Hey everyone, welcome back to our weekly positivity focus. I took a partial blog break for the past two weeks while the kiddies were home for Easter holidays. I’m feeling really happy about getting back to the weekly focuses as I was finding them helpful myself & have missed them! I’d love to hear your thoughts on how you are enjoying the weekly focus in the comments.
Before we get started on week 7, since there has been a break, I’ll give you a quick catch up on the first six weeks of our positivity focus. I’ll include links in case you missed any and want to have a little read…
Week 1 – You are More than Just your Body
Week 2 – Love Yourself First
Week 3 – The Healing Power of Nature
Week 4 – Stay Focused on the Present Moment
Week 5 – Embrace the Moment like you Chose it
Week 6 – Forgive and Release
What Others Think About you is None of your Business
Ok, read this a few times until it really and truly hits home – what others think about you is none of your business.
This is a true revelation my friends. Just think about this. Think about how much time we waste wondering if others approve of what we do, what we wear, what we say, how we look. Wondering what people think about us – do they like me? Did I annoy them? Should I do something just to please them even though I don’t’ want to?
Each of us has our own minds and we can think as we want to think. It’s up to us how we think inside our own head and it is no one else’s business what we think.
So the same goes for what others are thinking – it’s none of our business what they are thinking. So let’s stop analyzing, worrying or judging what we think others are thinking. And just focus on our character, on being who we want to be.
You don’t know what is going on in someone else’s head
Really and truly even with your best guesswork and detective hat on, you don’t know what others are thinking or why they are thinking it. So it’s best to not even guess. Don’t try to figure it out. Don’t try to act a certain way for approval or as revenge for what you perceive others are thinking or feeling about you.
We are only ever guessing at what others think. And we never know why people act or think as they do, we all have our own ways about us. So make your decisions and keep your thoughts pure as to who you are and what you want, don’t allow the opinions or the possible thoughts of others to creep into your mind.
Own Your Peace & Happiness
Your happiness is your responsibility. Other people might do things that make you feel hurt or unhappy but it’s your responsibility to pull yourself back to a positive space and to carry on. Blaming others for their actions and holding onto the hurt and wanting them to fix it only leads to more negativity and hurt for yourself. If you are holding onto anger toward others, try the tips in my forgive & release article.
You need to own your peace. Own your happiness. Be the only one who is in charge of that.
I’m going to keep this week short and sweet and ask you to focus on not allowing the opinions of others to bother you. Try not to think about it and if you find yourself doing it, stop yourself. Remember, what others think about you is none of your business. And own your peace and happiness too – don’t let that be contingent on what others say or do.
I’d love to hear your feedback on this week and if you find this helpful. I have quotes focusing on this weeks theme, so follow Cuddle Fairy below for your daily dose of positivity. x
