Have you ever said the phrase "sick and tired"? I know I have. In fact it became one of my favorite phrases for awhile. "I'm sick and tired of my boss." "I'm sick and tired of the kids being lazy." "I'm sick and tired of so and so." I'm sick and tired of blah, blah, blah."
Well guess what....I only thought I was sick and tired. When I actually GOT sick and tired I realized the error of my ways.
Words have power. What you put out there will come back to you. If you keep putting out into the ethers how sick and tired you are of everyone else's crap, guess what? You get Mono.....(granted this is just my example, but it is a good one). If you constantly complain about being broke, why are you so surprised that you are always broke? When you complain about your pathetic love life, why are you surprised when your love life sucks.
Lately there are have been a lot of books and movies like, The Secret and What the Bleep, coming out showing the power of thoughts and words. All of this information is not anything new to the thousands of Pagans out there. This is something that is a basic tenant of our beliefs. What you put out there comes back to you threefold. Or, an it harm none, do what thou wilt. Or more commonly know, do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Seems pretty simple and obvious to me.
What I really want to say is watch your words and thoughts. Stay positive. Think positive. Speak positive. Live, love, laugh......put out into the world what you want to get back from it. You'll be happy with the results.
