I don’t know about you, but the Law of Attraction changed my life in a dramatic way, and definitely for the better.

Sure, I’ve used it to attract “things” like cars, and money and a business, but the change has been much more profound, and valuable, than any individual item or circumstance I could possibly manifest.

Like many people I’ve talked with, when I first learned about the Law of Attraction, it was as if I had been struck by lightening.  A sudden, drastic change in my perception occurred, and I quickly jumped from being mostly anxious, angry and pessimistic to becoming someone who was suddenly reaching for positive thoughts on purpose.

Although this transformation began quickly, it still continues today.

I’ve come to find that the metamorphosis to becoming a “positive person,” doesn’t occur overnight, but rather it is a process that unfolds in every waking moment.  As time goes on, we simply peel back layer upon layer of limitations and negative beliefs, getting closer and closer to true harmony…but it is an infinite journey that never ends.

The closer you get, the more you learn. It gets better and better, but it never ends. We’re always in the process of becoming what we are to become.

Now, however, I am at a point in my life where I can reflect on the distance I’ve traveled since that moment years ago when I first heard of the Law of Attraction. I’ve peeled back a lot of layers since those days, and lately, I’m finding that my life has truly evolved into something much more special than I ever could have imagined back then.

In fact, the latest awareness I’ve had about this change has been especially amazing to uncover. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve become aware that the way I approach my life, and my work, is completely opposite to what it once was.

See, I used to be a very regimented and control-oriented person.  I did my laundry every Saturday, and I went grocery shopping every Thursday after work.  I arrived at parties on time, and I arrived at work at least 15 minutes early.

I cleaned my house the same way week after week, and I exercised at the same time each day.  I prepared for my work well in advance of any due dates and I did my best to be the “right” kind of mom, wife, teacher, daughter and friend.

I was a machine of organization.  I was a machine of control.  I suppose you could say I was a bit of a perfectionist.

I’m happy to say, those days are officially over.  They’ve been becoming fewer and fewer over the years, but a couple of weeks ago I realized, the way I used to be is entirely in my past. I’m no longer that person.

This isn’t to say that routines are bad, and that if you have them you should get rid of them, because for some people, I’m sure routines provide a great deal of comfort and stability. However, for me, the routines I insisted on had become a prison to me.

It was my belief that in order to be a good person who was worthy of my own happiness I had to jump through certain hoops and attain certain standards.  I couldn’t be comfortable if I felt that my life wasn’t “living up” to certain expectations I’d come to believe in.

Today, when I wake up, I ask myself “what do I feel like doing?” instead of jumping immediately in to a pre-established routine.  When I want to write my blog, I write my blog. When I want to clean my house, I clean my house.  When I want to take action in my business, I move forward, and when I’m feeling overwhelmed by it, I step back.

I play more than I work, and I relax more than I stress.  I don’t beat up on myself for my lazy days, and I let it be ok to spend an afternoon lounging around if that’s what I feel like doing.

My only real goal these days is to enjoy the here and now. That’s it, and my commitment to this goal has taken a massive burden off of my shoulders.
