I’m Tired of saying things like…

I’m tired of saying things
I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired
I hate feeling like I hate feeling
I get annoyed at getting annoyed
I’m over being over it
I get frustrated every time I get frustrated
Ive had enough of having enough
Why do I allow my negativity to feed my negativity….
I never get sick or tired or annoyed or hateful or negative or get over choosing happiness.
why does it seem easier to feed our negative side than it does our positive side?
worry begets worry
joy begets joy
they are not the same but they are companions.

    please dont view this post in any other context than a poke in the ribs to look at how we perpetuate our mental and spiritual state by using phrases, words and thoughts.
    When we preface something with a negative that something becomes a negative ie “I really hate the way….” bang we have put ourselves into a hateful state.
    If I finish that sentence….”my hair looks today” the hateful state becomes a reflection of myself and all negativity around that state sits heavily and uncomfortably on my shoulders and in the air around me and makes others feel uncomfortable too.
    When we preface something with a positive ie “I really like the way…” bang I am feeling better already and I am in a good state to deal with the challenges of the day. To finish the statement…”my hair has a mind of it’s own..bit like me really” I am going to walk out the door with a spring in my step and a smile on my face.
    Thing is you cant make other people think this way.

  2. Liz says:

    I’ve been working on this one for quite some time–if you notice who is the one who is annoyed, fed up, hateful and who is the other who is watching. There is the mind and there is awareness. The mind loves its stories and convinces you to believe them. Let your awareness be. (This is from Eckhart Tolle). It was a puzzle to me but once it made sense, it helped a lot but I still get lost in mind stories a lot but learned to be the watcher in small steps. I like the part where you become one with how your hair is looking today, that is accepting what is.
    Also one of mhy new year’s goals is to not spend so much time on the computer but I am still here.

    I just had a revelation. I am always trying hard; in my life and as a PC. I am always looking for Paul’s News etc. I am the student who asks for the extra credit or would answer the extra question; or would practice my experiment so it would turn out right–I was like that esp in grade school; as I got older everything unraveled; life throws you surprises and I cannot control the outcome each time no matter how hard I tried. So there; thanks Paul for triggering an epiphany. Hah!

  4. Think of being in a negative state of mind is like being a magnetic field of negativity that attracts the people around you as well as yourself. I guess it’s easier to feed negativity as it feeds your fears and insecurities. Once you accept that life is unfair 90% percent of the time, i guess positivity comes easier. Gee I guess a lot don’t I? 😛
    I’m a new face by the way. I find myself on this more and more each day. Reading through the archives helps me get through things. Thanks for your insights Paul 🙂

  5. paul says:

    Liz I am a student of Pauls Corner and therefore you, what we share and give is terrific and on occassion really important or more often than not truly life changing.
    Leigh – welcome and thank you for commenting. I must disagree with you regarding life being unfair 90% of the time I dont believe that is so. Life is not always how we want it, pray for it or accept it but it is often what we make it thereby I try to make it fair 100% of the time and succeed occassionally. Fair is a rating that belongs to a judgement and I try to live not judge.

    Great words Paul. I am on the same track but have a ways to go. My Christmas was a disappointment. I’m sure I had something to do with it. lol. Damn, brain of mine, still falls back into habits that perpetuate disappointments. I’m just so used to it. I visualize myself as different than this. I will eventually get there. There is no doubt in my mind. It’s taking the course that is necessary. I just have to stop fighting it and realize that I am worthy of peace and happiness and it is nobody’s intention to punish me. As far as this next year is concerned, I want to live like I was dying, so I can make each day count! I want to LIVE!

    Hey all,
    Paul, I agree….. The law of atraction is VERY strong. Be careful what you say as when you say it, you invite it to happen. SOOOOOOOO, lets try to make all of our comments positive and joyous so that the experiences we receive are joyous. I try anyway. I am trying to be positive and feel as though my job is around the corner just waiting for me and I know it will happen, I just have to wait till it does and the right moment. I had a revelation, this wqas my Dad;s time to go. It was. nothing about it was anything like anything else that had happened t him, and he made the choice, it was all about him. It was his time. I am happy he is in paradise, I just wish I could know he wqas happy for certain, but I believe he is. In my dreams he is very happy.
    Love to all,
    Kelly

    I don’t know why it’s so much easier for many people to be negative, express themselves through negatives etc. One could endlessly theorize and speculate about that, but I won’t!
    As I struggled with and through a lot of things in the last 2 years especially, I noticed how many negative messages, conditional messages etc. I was raised with and have internalized. For the last 6 months or so in particular, I am replacing these negative messages and thoughts with positive, life-affirming and life-embracing ones and it is a choice, it is also hard work. I’ve also noticed that when I don’t manage to live this new positive life style and thought system, I can quite easily beat myself up for it, i.e. fall back into another trap of negativity. So be gentle with yourselves as you embrace positivity, don’t expect and demand perfection from yourself, ever, but esp. not as you transition, practice, learn and live positively!

  12. Sarah says:

    Paul, I like the way you think. 😀 (Woot! I was positive! LOL)
    I am a firm believer in “self-fulfilling prophecies.” I realized some time back that if I said “this will never happen, ” and the like often enough that I was bang-on – it didn’t happen. So now I do my best to have positive self-fulfilling prophecies. My current one is that I know my surgery next month will be successful and that I will reap benefits from it. 🙂 I’m also sure that 2010 is the year that things turn around for me in the romance department. Pretty good start, eh? 😉
    Leigh, welcome to PC. Nice to have another person adding their thoughts. I hope we’ll see more of you.
    Oh, Paul my mom LOVES the cookbook. She was so thrilled to have a signed copy. She called me and said, “I’ve never had an autographed book before!” It definitely made her Christmas, and I know she will be diving in and making some of those dishes soon enough. 😀

  13. Melody says:

    Happy New Year Paul, Cat and PCs!!
    Paul, loved your entry. Kind of like we are what we eat . . . or how do we frame it? We need to feel worry so we can feel joy–how else would we know the difference? Companions for sure.
    Sarah, I hear you on affirmations we are raised with and internalize–our early family relationships shape our lifetime.
    It’s taken all these years to see the parallel between my early days and reactions, and current times and, yes, some of the same reactions. If I stand back before reacting, I can catch it and turn a negative into a positive. But, sometimes I see it when it’s too late.
    Kelly, I just read your Christmas post and hug to you. The first holidays without your dad or mom are tough. Feel his love within your heart.
    Sarah and Liz, thanks again for all you did in getting Paul’s book to us. It came while I was off for Christmas and it was fun to open the package and see Paul’s smiling face on the cover.
    Paul, the book looks fabulous and the pictures are very inviting. You are so creative in your cooking! I look forward to reading your narratives, too.
    Now, as for what you wrote . . . I think that’s best wishes?? (Best waltzes?–hey, dancing souls here!) 😉
    Seriously, it’s a treasure. To think I own a genuine Paul Mercurio book, signed by the master himself–awesome!
    Again, Happy 2010. Wishing many good promises, adventures, love and happiness to all of you!

  14. Evelyn says:

    Melody, it was so very nice to meet you in person on Monday when I was up in Chicago!!!!
    Paul, I give up on the one word. I know it needs to be a noun, I just can’t make it out. I’ll take a pic and post in in FB. 🙂

  15. Evelyn says:

    never mind, Paul, as I took the picture just now, I figured it out! too funny how that happens!

  16. kelly haggard says:

    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!!
    Be careful! In Aussie I think its already new year so hope everyone is safe there.
    LOVE TO YOU ALL!
    Evelyn, what di you have troiuble reading? hummmm
    Happy Day Everyone!
    Kelly

  17. Evelyn says:

    Happy new your to all of you! May you experience the best 2010 has to offer! Cheers!

  18. Liz says:

    Happy New Year! Best wishes for the New Year! Thankful for all there is.

  19. Liz says:

    I am not very original when it comes to making New Year’s resolutions; this one sounds like a good one to look into, not necessarily follow, so just check it out:
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-mehmet-oz/its-all-in-how-you-see-it_b_408183.html

  20. Liz says:

    About New Year’s resolutions, I am tired of trying to become something improved and better and working towards becoming something I am not right now–If only I had this success in my project, as soon as I get to my exercise goal, when people start behaving a certain way towards me, when I earn enough, etc, THEN I will be happy with myself. Through the years I see that putting off being happy in search of that something else only leads to more seeking. So even for one brief moment I will be satisfied with me as I am–with all its flaws and failures and some successes too. (Not to say there is no room for improvement–there’s always a lot that can be done). What I am trying to do is give up the trying to become something else again.

  21. Liz says:

    Sorry for the 4th post but I wanted to add that the book for me is a good starting point for healthier meals; the flavors and influences are from around the world: Aus, NZ, Asia and Mediterranean. The recipes avoid unhealthy fats–always using olive oil or real butter not the trans/hydrogenated fats. Also it shows you how to use fresh local ingredients; I was thinking it would be more expensive to get local veggies, meat and fish but think how expensive it is to truck or fly food from faraway places. So it is cheaper to use local ingredients as the book recommends. Also no nannygai fish in our local store but Paul gave a good substitute; Happy New Year of Enjoyable Meals from Mercurio’s Menu.

  22. MaryS says:

    Happy New Year everyone! I too try not to make “resolutions” in fear of them becoming empty promises.
    I read something today that I liked and will try to carry with me this year:
    If you apply yourself, you will find that awareness is both a great protector and a great healer.
    Your natural state is one of joy, peace and spontaneous fulfillment. When you are not experiencing this state, some contamination is present in body or mind. Contamination can be the result of toxic emotions, habits and relationships as well as toxic substances.

  23. Liz says:

    MaryS I like the above; awareness is a healer. (There is no other reality but that.) I noticed the PCs had a reunion in Chicago (Evelyn and Melody!!! Show us pics and let me know if any PC will be in town; I would not want to miss that).
    Also I just learned that beer esp hoppy beer has lots of antioxidants so it is a health food in moderate amounts.

  24. Evelyn says:

    Liz, if we had actually remembered to taking pictures, I’d be happy to share them, but we enjoyed talking so much over lunch, that I blanked on this. 🙁 Maybe next time???

  25. Evelyn says:

    Ps. although I could always photoshop us together into a picture with a Chicago backdrop … 🙂

  26. Melody says:

    Evelyn–that’s an idea!
    Hope everyone had safe holidays!
    2010, come on down!

  27. Melody says:

    Hey PCs–I found copies of Joseph here in Chicago!
    A local religious store has them here on Michigan Avenue!

  28. Liz says:

    It would be great if Evelyn and Melody posed for a picture with the Mercurio’s Menu book and the Chicago backdrop. Then the book would show as having travelled to Chicago. I will do one for my town with the MM book. Joseph the movie is very well liked. Paul did so many roles from being in a bible movie to an S and M movie and SB; he really is a versatile actor.

  29. Evelyn says:

    Will se what I can do, Liz! 🙂

  30. Liz says:

    I did the same thing; when I met Cat I forgot to take a picture both times and also forgot to ask my Cat interview questions. Cat our webmaster is elusive and I blew my 2 chances to take a picture. I will not forget the next time.

  31. Sarah says:

    Melody, I feel honored that we managed to get a pic with Rosie the time we all met up. 🙂 That seems like an eternity ago.
    Today I had the first part (and “worst” in my opinion) of the pre-op tests. Tomorrow it’s mainly blood work. For anyone wishing to follow my steps, so to speak, you can read my blog: http://katsmig.blogspot.com I’ll also put the link in my sig for future reference.
    All is well here – I’m just ultra tired tonight.

  32. Marian says:

    Sarah and Liz, thank you so very much for organizing the aquisition and distribution of Paul’s book.
    Paul, thank you so for the autograph.
    I was the envy of my friends who are also fans of Joseph. They were in awe of my treasure!!
    Thinking about Paul’s list of marriage advice in relation to PC and New Year’s resolutions. How nice to come to PC and read “heart” messages to, for, and from each other (item #1). Even very different phylosophical positions can presented and never get bashed by others (item #2). So nice to gain encouragement and give encouragement when hurts and struggles are expressed here (item #3). Paul’s Corner is another treasure in my life! Thank you Kat and Paul for the opportunity and thank you all PCers for being here.
    Happy New Year everyone!!
    Marian (and I live in Oklahoma, USA)

  33. Melody says:

    Sarah, so true–it was great to get together and talk–the conversation continue on from the restaurant to the parking lot of the motel where I was staying, probably over an hour more!!
    Hope your tests are going well and that you’re getting adequate rest, too. I’m sure that will be equally important to your results.
    Snow is on its way to Chicago. I’m sure Evelyn will be getting hit with it any minute now based on the radar. It will come to us overnight. (I don’t know when this will post on PC, but currently it’s Wed 1/6/10 at 3:24 p.m.)
    Dance workshop tonight and not taught by me–will be nice to be just dancing. We’re using the bata de cola (the dress with the long train in back). The trick will be to not trip ourselves up! LOL
    I hope everyone is having a good start to 2010.

  34. Liz says:

    Sarah, will be following you on your journey. Will pray that you get the best team for your care. Thanks for the link.
    I love the bata de cola that you wore Melody; you looked just like Fran. Show us some pictures if possible. We are getting milder weather here but dark and rainy; still it does not stop our walking group from walking in the rain.

  35. Liz says:

  36. Evelyn says:

    It’s getting ominously gray here just prior to the snow storm hitting us, Melody! Decided to take advantage of the balmy 26 F and the sunshine and just came back from a long run outside, new longest distance running for me (14.5 km) and in my best per kilometer time (just under 6 min per KM). Feeling proud of myself!!!
    Happy dancing to you Melody, and yes, please don’t trip anyone up, incl. or esp. yourself!
    Sarah, thinking about you. Hope all goes well with your surgery prep and the surgery itself!
    Liz, maybe you guys could dance in the rain (instead of walking) to spice things up a bit? maybe not in a bata de cola as I fear that beautiful dress would get rather muddy.
    Best wishes to everyone here!

  37. Liz says:

    We walk and climb (an uphill walk but only at 3 mph) there is a faster group that does it as 4.5 mph but I do not want to leap to the hill to keep up with them; the elevation change is 1000 feet so it is a hard climb for me even though it is a walk. We stay off the muddy trails as it is wet and slick and maybe a bata de cola in the rain will be nice but I will be muddy. Someone wore a Spanish costume with a veil during Halloween but it was Halloween 🙂

  38. Evelyn says:

    that’s quite a climb! good for you Liz! I actually ran every darn incline on my course today, I rarely do that as hills and inclines still give me trouble. Today I just told myself each time, you can do it! and I did! 😀 Had to run on the paved trails today as the other trail had quite a bit of ice on it. Tomorrow, both will be covered in snow. Planning on a short recovery run and then a day off before my next race on Saturday morning, if it’s not too cold for that, single digits with subzero wind chills may be too cold.

  39. Liz says:

    What kind of race is that that you do in the winter? We have milder winters here; 50 degrees but rainy so we get mud no snow; sometimes ice and that is trouble bec it is easy to climb the trail but impossible to get down on ice. We are just leisurely walkers; although one can join the faster group if you want or the slower group if you want. Walking down is harder on the knees; if you visit my town I will take you on a hike or walk rain or shine and of course take a picture with you and the MM book. So if you have a conference coming up let me know.

  40. Liz says:

    Paul on his marriage secret; he and Andrea cook something new every month; I wonder what those dishes are…PCs read the NZ Women’s Weekly article
    http://www.nzwomansweekly.co.nz/celebrities/celeb-stories/paul-mercurio-makes-meal-it/story/4100916/

  41. Grandma Mil says:

    Paul, “My Biggest Fan” will be repeated on Sunday,
    January 17th 11:00 a.m. on SBS TV Australia.
    Hope you’ll be able to watch it or tape it…you’re in it. It’s the second time for Australia, and New Zealand has played it twice also.
    It’s so great to travel without leaving home!
    MBF’s message is universal as it pertains to
    ageing gracefully, among other things.
    One woman from Australia who had watched it wrote:
    “I found the documentary illuminating and it gave
    me hope for my future old age, and I resolve to
    work hard at keeping fit, active, and interested.”
    (She mentions her dad, who is fit and hearty, but very negative temperamentally.)
    Shalom, and love,
    Grandma Mil

  42. Marian says:

    Congratulations, Grandma Mil!! How wonderful to have such an influence on the lives of so many!!

  43. liz says:

    G. Mil any chance you can place a short clip of your movie on YouTube? Same as when Cat posted Mercurio’s Menu on YouTube,ESP for the US PCs who can’t see SBS?

  44. GRANDMA MIL says:

    Dear Liz,
    Tara and I once spoke about posting something of MBF on YouTube, but I don’t know how to do it; it will have to wait until Tara returns to Sydney after a movie shoot in Adelaide; her daughter, Ondine, is a genius at such things, and I’ll bet she could do it..eventually!
    One of our daughters, Leah, was near a store in New Jersey, and heard two women with Australian accents talking…she went up to them, and asked
    if they knew about “Strictly Ballrooom” and they enthusiastically replied, “of course; what ever happened to the main characters”? and Leah replied, “Tara Morice, the female lead dancer, just filmed a documentary, “My Biggest Fan” with my mother in it” and the women said, “Oh, my goodness, we saw it on TV in Australia, and enjoyed it so much.. your mother? What a coincidence!” (They didn’t ask Leah for her autograph…)
    Shalom and love,
    Grandma Mil

  45. Melody says:

    Hi everyone–catching up a little on everyone’s posts.
    Sarah–will keep you in my thoughts and prayers that all this goes well and without complication. May you have the very best behind you!
    Evelyn, how did you do–Chicago didn’t do quite as bad as they hyped up on the news. We had about 6″, but then that’s on the north side of the city. And now we’re thawing out.
    Liz, someone actually wore a flamenco dress and veil (perhaps a mantilla with comb?) during your walks?? Hmmm, maybe I can try that sometime. LOL
    Grandma Mil, what fun for Leah–imagine that! Not everyone can say that their mother is in a film, especially in Tara’s MBF! I’m sure the ladies were very surprised and when they watch the repeat on TV, they can tell everyone they met Leah and the lady on screen is her “mum”!
    We didn’t trip in class, but dancing in the longer dresses can get underfoot at times. The key is awareness of where the train (“cola” as we call it) is. You have to imagine you’re one with the dress and at length with it. Part of moving is “locating” it periphally and mentally.
    Like other things that are considered very Spanish, the fan, the shawl, the bata de cola dress–stems from the orient during the days when Spain had its presence in the Philippines. They would import these items from Manila and they became part of their culture and dance.
    OK–history lesson over! Now to watch the clip of Paul and Andrea. (Thanks, Liz!)
    Hope 2010 is off to a great start for Paul, Cat and all PCs!

  46. Sarah says:

    Hi all! I’m still alive and kicking – and now 13 days out from surgery! I began the special pre-op diet yesterday. It restricts me to 800 calories/day. The items in the diet (pre-packaged drinks, meal bars and soup mixes) are actually quite palatable, but today I am feeling the immense decrease in calories. My friend said it only took her a day or two to acclimate to the lower calories, so hopefully tomorrow I’ll feel a bit more perky. I’ve just finished sipping down a bowl of chicken soup and feel that it isn’t as tasty as the garden tomato soup. (Oddly Gena was the opposite and said she found the tomato soup completely disgusting.) I’ve been doing a good job keeping my blog updated, the link is still in my signature for anyone who wants to follow.
    Hope everyone is doing well!

  47. Liz says:

    Sarah, thanks for giving us a firsthand account of what it’s like to go through this process. Will be following.

  48. Sarah says:

    Liz, I can’t guarantee there won’t be days where it’s complete gibberish. 😉
    Thanks for the link to the article. Best of luck, Paul!

  49. Melody says:

    Sarah, I’m very happy for you and wishing you every success! I hope the food remains edible as well as palatable.
    Paul, wishing you even more succes on your New Zealand program. When I think of exotic (at least here in Chicago), it might be Asian at the most. Even after looking rhrought your book, I realize how narrow my food-scape is! How wonderful that you’re down under and have all this opportunity!
    Liz, thanks for the posts–it’s great to keep up with Paul’s events and programmes (programs in the States . . . although I’ve seen things printed from the 1930s and 40s, and looks like they did spell it programmes back then!).

  50. liz says:

    Melody also looking forward to Paul’s new programme in New Zealand called New Zealand On A Plate. There’s the Southland Times scoop,spilled thevnews,cat out of the bag;always better with NZ TV as US pcs easier to see the show online; so PAul when is the show going to air? Let us know we won’t miss it.

  51. Evelyn says:

    Today is Grandma Millie’s birthday! Happy Birthday, dear Mildred, happy celebration and much health and joy to you in the year ahead of you!!!

  52. Melody says:

    Wishing you a Happy Birthday from Chicago, Millie!! Sto lat! (May you have 100 years!)

  53. Liz says:

    G. Mil Happy Birthday! Looking forward to a screening of your movie here in the US. Much love.

  54. Sarah says:

    Happy Birthday, Millie!

  55. Grandma Mil says:

    Thank you, Evelyn, Sarah, Melody,and Liz, for your birthday wishes!
    It was a great day, filled with cards, emails, and phone calls from the U.S. and from Israel, Europe, and Australia. (Ellie and I just became greatgrandparents of number 12 with more on the way in the coming months, all in Israel.)
    Sarah, thinking of you as the day of your surgery
    approaches. You are determined and brave; everything will be fine!!
    Shalom and love,
    Grandma Mil

  56. MaryS says:

    Happy late Birthday Grandma Millie! I hope you are enjoying your week! It’s so exciting that you are a celebrity and all because of a wonderful little indie movie that made us all fall in love with Paul. I can’t believe I’ve been a part of this community for over 5 years! It makes me very happy.
    I hope everyone is well. We should be hearing about our company’s acquisition in this next week. From that announcement we will learn our fates as far as having a job or not. It’s not fun having your entire life controlled by some big money making company when you are barely making it as it is. I am grateful to have had my job at Sun for over 11 years now and hope it continues and if so, at the same pay. We’ve heard we could lose up to 20% of our pay.
    Take care everyone! I am ready for Spring!

  57. Grandma Mil says:

    Dear Mary,
    Will keep fingers crossed that you will keep your job. What a strain and what injustice, where the rich get richer and the rest have to suffer!!
    I was born during the Great Depression, but my parents managed to survive with the help of prayer, relatives, and the policies of our greatest President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
    The best to you; keep us informed!
    Shalom and love,
    Grandma Mil

  58. MaryS says:

    Thank you Millie! No solid news yet. Should be early next week that we learn our fate.
    I’m keeping my fingers crossed tight also!

  59. Melody says:

    MaryS–thinking of you! All the best!
    Wishing Paul and all PCs a great weekend!

  60. Liz says:

    MaryS crossing fingers — let us know of the news. Nothing for certain even for me–always new challenges, a dance of forms (been reading the power of the now).

  61. Paul says:

    A very happy although belated birthday wish to you Grandma Mil. I hope you had a great day and were spoilt rotten!
    Thankyou for the reminder about MBF – I have been in NZ so I didnt get the message however my lovely wife saw that it was on and taped it for me – we will watch it together tonight!
    Sarah I hope all is well with you and your surgery. We all look forward to hearing from you soon so that we know you are fine and of course our thoughts are with you.
    MaryS I am sorry to hear that your work is in a bit of upheaval. I hope it sorts itself out and you dont lose any pay or your job!!
    I am rather tired of the whole insecurity of my working life. Whilst I am rather busy at the moment and will be until the end of March a couple of good jobs which were meant to happen later in the year have been canned which effectively means come the end of March I will have nothing lined up. On the positive side something will come up as it always does on the negative side how long a stretch of no work and therefore no money will I have to deal with before that something comes up.
    It is a constant and tiring struggle to balance the whole fame/work/no work thing. Occasionally I think I am in the wrong business.
    Maybe I should read the poweer of now also?!

  62. Sarah says:

    Hi all!
    Mary, you are in my thoughts. I hope you get good news.
    My surgery is only days away now. I’ll head to the hospital bright and early Tuesday morning and be in surgery around 11:30 EST. I have a friend contacting people once I’m out of surgery. If any of my friends in the US wants a text sent to them and then you could post here, let me know and get your number to me. (Most of you know how to contact me.) I will be released sometime Thursday. So the earliest I will likely be online is Thursday night. Thanks to you all for keeping me in your thoughts.
    Paul, a lot can happen between now and the end of March. You might find by then that you have more things lined up for the latter part of the year. Stay positive! 😀
