Well this got my attention. I began looking around and I noticing that people used phrases like "My feet are killing me" and "You know that kind of lifestyle isn't for people like us" (meaning the lower class, living a higher class lifestyle) like they were facts that they should just accept.
I also noticed the ones who seemed happiest appeared to be so by choice. They had every reason to complain and be unhappy but they chose not to. They didn't ignore the negative, they just simply chose to focuson the positive.
Well I knew about "the power of positive thinking", "the have faith and believe" from the bible and had heard all the "laws of attraction" talk going around, but it just didn't "click."
Then one day the key jumped out and grabbed me and it changed and is still changing my life:
" ITS NOT ABOUT THE GOOD OR THE BAD, WE ALL HAVE THOSE THINGS, ITS ABOUT WHERE YOUR FOCUS IS."
I started to do all the usual "positive thinking" stuff to change Where my focus was. BUT what really helped the most was something a dear friend tried for many years to show me:
Simply make a decision to emphasize in my daily talk, all the good things that happened in my life. If someone asks you about something negative, "yea that is there, BUT did you know...." By doing this you put the emphasis and focus on the positive.
Its been two years now and I don't just "see the light at the end of the tunnel" I can feel its warmth. And my answer to where is my focus? I do believe: "Yes anything is possible to them that believe." is my new cliche and I am singing Annie's song "Tomorrow" all the time.
How about you? Where is your focus today?
