Focus on what you do want and forget the rest.
Our minds are so powerful at creating our experiences in life. We use our minds as a tool and filter to help us interpret what is happening before us and whether or not we like what we see. Training our minds to scan our environments and our experiences for the silver lining, requires focus and practice. It can be much easier said than done.
I’m learning that as I add small changes and joyful habits to support support seeing the good things in life, the easier it’s becoming to focus and see more of what I do want in life. With practice and small steps forward, change is not only possible, it begins to feel natural. When we adopt a new mindset gradually, it becomes more of a way of living, and the easier said than done feeling sort of fades away.
Each of us has a choice in how we interact and react to life before us. Everything that happens outside of our ‘mind bubble’ is the material we have to work with. The power of our focus, and the gift of adopting joyful habits, become very useful when we are interpreting our experiences.
We can either focus on our problems or their solutions, on our joys or our sorrows, on other people’s good traits or their not so good traits. You get the point here, it is all a choice and what we see most often, is what we tend to put into practice regularly. If you want to see more of what you do want in life, start in small ways by looking for what it is you want to see.
How will you use the gift of your focus to interpret the moments before you?
