Where's Your Focus?
By Selena Richardson

Are you focusing on the positives and living your life to the fullest? Or are you caught up in all of the negativity and fear that is troubling the world today?

It is easy to become trapped in the cycle of fear these days. Everywhere you turn someone is talking about what's going on 'over there'. Or you turn on the TV and the media is replaying the latest pictures from the front lines.

So how do we concentrate on ourselves during times like this, especially when the media makes it so difficult to do so? How do we keep our focus on what we want for ourselves? How do we keep our energy positive?

It's not an easy task but we have to keep our thoughts positive and our hearts full of love. We can't let ourselves get bogged down by everything that's going on. Unplug the television or at least cut down on what and how much of it you watch. That will help.

There are many other ways to keep your focus off what's going on. Go to the library and pick up a few books that you've been meaning to read. Rent a few feel good movies. Connect with your family more, have family nights where everyone gets together.

Now that spring is officially here, you can also get outside. Taking evening or early walks will help keep your spirit up. You can try bike rides or a game of softball. Yoga and meditation are good for the spirit as well.

We have to remember love. Love for ourselves, for our families, for those we don't even know. We have to keep love in our hearts and not let the world situations make us bitter or resentful. And we have to remember that life moves on. It may be hard to deal with sometimes, but life keeps on going. The grass keeps growing and the seasons keep changing even when it seems our world is falling apart.

You have a choice, as always, you can let fear and negativity weigh you down so much that your day to day life becomes difficult or you can keep moving on. You have the power to choose your focus. Keep it on the positive.

Life is too short to be spent worrying about the 'what ifs'. Put those 'what ifs' to the side, deal with them later. Return your focus to your dreams. Don't be afraid to go for what you want. And don't feel guilty about it either. If you want to start a business - do it. If you want to write a book - do it. If you want to go back to school - do it. Now is the only time you have. This is your world and change begins within you. Remember to keep love and peace in your heart. Replace your worries and fears with love. And don't be afraid to move on with your life.
