Recently, I introduced the observation of using “when” while imagining…..i.e Imagine “when” rather than imagining “if”.
I’d like to expand the concept of “when” in our lives.
To me an obvious time for using “when” is in times of doubt. It becomes a time for re assurance …..e.g,
When things improve rather than….. ‘hoping for things to improve’
When I commit to action rather than……I’ll get to it sometime if I feel the need
When I know that I can do this rather than…..nah, everyone tells me it’s too hard to attempt
When is also a positive statement…... Many of you may be aware of “I am” statements which are used in positive reinforcement training & are very powerful in their own right. Combine them & you create an even more powerful force e.g,
“When I am making a difference…..to myself, to my community”
“When I am unbeatable”
“When I am trusting, understanding of myself”
…… they bring a permanency to your thinking…..i.e it is happening
Some more examples of the power of when:
When I choose to “live” rather than just exist or survive
When I embrace each moment instead of letting them slide by
When I love rather than hate
When I accept rather than judge
When I act & participate in Life rather than sit on the sidelines
When I say ‘thank you’ for this day instead of having ‘just another day’
When I share myself rather than go it alone
When I see the beauty in others and in my environment
When I take steps with purpose and create my world with care & positive action
Do you see the difference? adding or prefacing your thoughts and verbalisations with when adds an edge, a sharpness, a clarity……..to your message to both yourself and to others.
I’d love to know how when can affect your Life…..in what circumstances can you use when?…..do you now?
be good to yourselves
