Simple pleasures and everyday adventures
Yes, yes, yes...It's sort of an invisible thing, how inner spirit states affect our outer lives...this is what I think...Thank you, as always, for giving me a moment to pause and reflect...I need these lessons repeated often, in various ways...And I am certain your world is a loving one...
Rita--I need these lessons repeated often, too--that's one reason I have this blog! I do believe our outlook, expectations, and attitudes influence far more than we realize. Thank you for visiting, and for your many kind and loving comments :).
A long while back, there was a commercial that ran where a man started to complain about the town around him and how no one was friendly and he was worried about his safety. Seems like maybe he was at a gas station or something similar. Next a woman came in and gushed about what a wonderful place the town was and how nice everyone had been to her and her family...and as you probably guessed, it was the same town. There's a lot to be said for finding what you expect to find. Kind of a self-fulfilling prophecy. I have to occasionally (okay, frequently) remind myself I live in a world of abundance so I don't focus too much on what I *think* I'm lacking or the world is lacking.
Laure--We so often do get what we expect. It's more work to keep looking for love and positivity, but I believe it's worth it.
Dear Kathy - such wisdom in this statement. Thanks for reminding me too sweet friend. Hugs!
You're welcome, Debbie. Have a beautiful weekend!
There are several longer, old-world stories that make the same point (one from Nesredin comes to mind), but I like this quote because it's succinct and easy to remember!
Leanne--That's true, the succinct nature of it tends to make it easier to remember. I need all the help I can get :).
