Sunday morning blog time, everyone. Please sit with me while you drink your hot (or cold or tepid) cup of something delicious and let’s do this. I’m drinking coffee on this fine morning with a splash of almond milk and sprinkles of cinnamon. Cheers.
I heard a quote yesterday that I connected to. It was:
“Faith can move mountains but fear can create them.”
Isn’t that the damn truth?
When you look back on your life and reflect upon those times when you had faith and determination and perseverance that all would turn out ok, maybe not the way originally intended, but ok…didn’t that drive and faith take you to a great destination?
And when you look back or maybe you are in a state now where you are fraught with worry or anxiousness or impending doom, why, you’ve already created the energy and feeling of the outcome.
I don’t pretend to be God or fully understand how this universe we live in fully orchestrates but…
What I do know from being around for 36 years on this gorgeous little planet of ours is this:
What we choose to focus on we will have more of. Plain and simple.
When we focus on gratitude and inner joy, it seems to pop up wherever we go.
The opposite is true in this case. When we focus on the negative, that’s all we can see. Energy is contagious!
I’ll give you an example. Picture a beautiful marble statue intricately sculpted and its placed in a grand entrance in a palace. It’s a masterpiece and it’s an antique. Along its way, it’s had some minor scratches and bruises but the overall look of it hasn’t changed.
There are two people looking at it and the one person admires the great detail and the magnitude of it’s beauty. And the other person just zero’s in on the markups and mishaps on it and sneers.
You see, what we innately choose to look for and see in others, our lives, and even our experiences is what we are going to find more of.
I don’t know about you but I would rather choose to look for the beauty in people, the use of the rain, the lesson in the heartbreaks…
You will always find what you’re looking for because everything is available to you; the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Have faith, my friends. Choose the lighted path even if it seems dim at the moment.
Fear will only hold you by making you walk in circles. And stagnancy is dull.
Go get ‘em, you fearless beauties.
