Give your attention to the things you can change.
You can change the way you see other people, the way you understand events around you, the whole of your experience here.
Why not take the high road?
Discard everything you think about that doesn’t point you towards fulfillment, everything you see that doesn’t highlight brilliance and joy in your life. Toss that junk in the trash can, tie the bag shut, and set it on the curb.
Don’t bring it back in later to check if maybe you possibly dropped in something valuable! Just let it go!
I’m constantly having to remind myself “Okay, that’s done.”. Re-hashing it won’t change it. I try to learn from it and move on.
The choices we face every day start with waking. Do you start the day at a dead run, always feeling like you’ll never quite catch up? That makes it harder to find calm, to set your intentions, to remember that you’re part of the solution but not all of it.
Make your choice before your feet hit the floor, and stick with it!
Today is going to be extraordinary!
We can change the whole world. Today.
Let’s look at the brightest, most beautiful happenings, and celebrate! Start the momentum toward a more loving, more thoughtful planet. Tomorrow will take care of itself. Today is what we have.
