I’ve noticed that when I focus on the good things in my life — I get more of them. I get more of them, because I notice when they are happening.
I notice how they feel in my body.
I notice what they mean to me.
When I focus on what I don’t have (and to me this is separate from goal setting) I feel empty inside, incomplete.
I feel lack.
When I focus on what I love, I feel warmth. Completion. Inclusion. I feel connected to everything around me — and I feel close to the world.
This focus on good is all happening because of Step One: accepting where I am. Noticing that there are a few thngs I woud like to change — and a whole lot of things I don’t want to change.
It’s the It’s a Wonderful Life of goal setting.
Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world. John Milton.
