How much of our daily happiness relies on the size of our bank account? I’ve been faced with this recently and though I hate to admit it, not having that great big cushion absolutely impacts my ability to stay focused, creative and happy throughout the day. That little nagging worry in the back of my mind about what’s next, am I doing enough, will the work continue, etc., can wear you out – and I’m no exception. Being the sole provider with teenagers, one about to go off to college, is quite a responsibility. Am I surviving? Absolutely! Am I making everything work? You better believe it! Am I optimistic? Always! But….I realized lately that focusing on what I may not have or may not have enough of is just putting my energy into that trend and allowing it to continue. Shame on me. What I think about, I bring about. Bring on the satisfaction, contentment and gratitude.
I am an optimistic person. But we all have our moments and we all face our challenges. What does it take to look adversity in the face and not only smile, but say, “bring it on!” It takes faith. What you think about, you bring about. Imagine it and believe it and it will come to be. Don’t believe me? Try it.
How great is life? We have the opportunity to make the absolute best of our lives or sulk and watch it pass by. We can complain about the things we can not change or we can embrace them as life experiences we are to overcome and learn from. We can take control of our own destiny or be blinded by the direction we did not intend to go. Grab life!!
