Intentional Thoughts Promote Happiness Do you have an intention for your life? Intentions are so important because you use them to create your reality. Unfortunately, many people do not know that intentions are Carol Juergensen Sheets powerful mindsets that sync with what God or the Universe wants for us. How would your life be different if you lived in a world where you were happy, grateful, and enthusiastic about today and tomorrow. You may be thinking to yourself that your life is stressful and it is difficult to focus on the positives because your stress interferes with your thoughts. Well, you may have it backwards. Your thoughts cause your stress and no matter what occurs in your life you have the choice to decrease your stress by promoting healthy, intentional thoughts. At any point during the day you can overcome your stressful thoughts by promoting positive ones. This does not mean that you lead a Pollyanna-ish life but instead you look at your situation and say what good can come out of it? This does require some discipline because when you have a negative thought you must create an awareness, take some deep breaths, and ask yourself how can I change that thought to work for me. I recently had a medical crisis and found myself naturally worrying that the worst outcome would happen. I literally had to stop myself and say, “I can envision my body working with my thoughts to promote good medical health and harmony.” That intention not only stopped the worrying but it helped me to feel better in the process. There is a debate that thoughts cause feelings while others believe that feelings

cause thoughts. I believe they're very interrelated and that both can happen and therefore it's important to make a conscious choice to check in on your emotional state and ask yourself “how am I feeling right now and are my feelings driving my thoughts in a helpful, productive ways?” Again, this takes discipline to choose to activate positive thoughts that promote your well-being. If you tend to be a negative person or you are prone to depression and despair, you may want to find opportunities to spend time with people that are happy. If you don’t know any happy or positive people, join the Optimist Club or Rotary Club as both focus on positive well-being and making a difference in the lives of others Lastly, you want to stay in the attitude of gratitude. That means focusing on what you're grateful for and what is working in your life. If it appears that your life is crumbling around you, I would encourage you to take a walk and notice the beauty outside. No matter what your plight, whether it be a divorce, a loss, bankruptcy, a failed job, or any other calamity… When you notice the beauty around you it will increase positive energy in your life. This may seem like a foreign concept because no one teaches you that you have that kind of power to bring good things into your life. But your connection with universe is powerful and when you practice noticing the beauty around you it will multiply tenfold. If you practice these techniques, you will begin to see that your life will move towards a better outcome. When you create the intention to have healthier thoughts you enjoy life more. You take control of your destiny. When you change your thoughts, you change your feelings, and when your feelings and thoughts change, the happiness factor does too!

Damages for Personal Injury Unique to the Person The impact of an injury on a person’s life is unique to each person. If you have been injured in an accident, full recovery of damages far exceeds the amount of your medical expenses. In Indiana, injured people may receive compensation for: • Past and future medical bills; • Lost time from work and loss of earning capacity; • Pain and suffering; • Emotional distress and mental anguish; • Scarring and disfigurement; and • Loss of quality and enjoyment of life.

A fair and reasonable settlement for personal injury takes into account all of these categories of damages. Compensation for the loss of quality and enjoyment of a person’s life because of injury should consider the loss or limitation of a person’s ability to take part in activities they once enjoyed. Such a loss is unique to each individual and can include activities such as walking the dog, gardening, traveling, or playing with children or grandchildren. If you have lost the ability to live the life that you once enjoyed because of an injury from and accident. Our toll free number is 1-800-792-0332. Call me for a free consultation.
