Today my first niece is celebrating her birthday. She is definitely very special for me as she is the first of five nieces.

And as there isn’t a big age gap between me and my two elder nieces we are close.

Just a few minutes ago we were talking on the phone and she said, “Auntie I am getting old!” To that my reply was, “No sweetie you are just growing.”

We are all growing day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute.

Now a lot of people ask me if I have done something with myself because according to them I look younger. And I feel it myself. I have more energy. I feel fresh. When I look into the mirror I see my eyes alive, shinning.
No I have not done anything physical if you don’t count the walks.

But, yes I have done something. I changed the way I THINK.

For one thing I have learned that thoughts become things. And I have learned to choose the good ones. Not the ones that worry the heck out of me. Once you believe in this you will not believe the miracles happening to you. Sincerely!

About 4 years ago I met this gorgeous guy. Who changed all my life slowly but definitely! His name is Mike Dooley and I am grateful every minute of my life for encountering him. No he is not a boyfriend and he is not anybody I have been involved with but he is one of the best living entrepreneurs one could learn from. I just attended his workshop in Istanbul and from there on all my life changed. 

In another column I will write more about him but if you are interested for the time being you can check www.tut.com for more information on Mike Dooley.

And another thing I learned was to relax, not to worry, to have peace with the past and to look at future with hope.

I relaxed… How? Well once you stop worrying about things automatically you relax. I just understood that if you have fate (whatever you believe in, you name it yourself; God, Universe, your angels etc.) than you leave it to what you believe and let things happen. Because if you go on worrying it means you don’t have fate in what you believe in. It is that simple!

Some people worry about relations, some worry about financial problems, some are mad about their children, some are worried about even less important things.

Just stand in front of the garden of thoughts like a guardian protecting her/his garden and let only the good thoughts to enter that garden.

Can you imagine in one day a person thinks approximately 60.000 thoughts and the next day 95% of these thoughts are the same. So if you just start thinking the positive ones and leave aside the negative ones, you will start having a delightful life as the life you build up is the life you are building up with your own thoughts. 
I have… and believe me with the first thought becoming reality you understand the magic.

Second and real important thing is to look forward and to leave the past behind. It happened… it is over. Now we have tomorrow. And do not mingle with “how’s” leave that to the Universe... to God... to Angels… just know what you want and they will come to you. This is the magic of it.

Focus on all what you have… not on what you don’t have. And be grateful.

Once I learned to control my life I knew I had control over my life.

So with this is a small problem of the website (which I would have taken as a huge problem only a few years ago) I understood the importance of taking things as they come. Worrying about it was just going to make me and people around me miserable. Instead I just went on as if nothing was happening.

I hope you will be able to do so too… and enjoy life as it comes to you!

AND Happy Birthday my dear swan (Ozlem cevik Ulgen) I love you!

Until next week keep cool and healthy!
