What if the world showed up for us in exactly the same way as we showed up to the world?
In other words, what if we start our day with thoughts of gratitude and only expected good things to happen. What if we see only the good in every person, and in every experience of the day? What if we see only the blessing in every situation?
How differently do you think the world would show up for us?
I’ve been experimenting with this concept and I’m convinced that the world will show up to match our expectations.
Just in case I’m right…
…Instead of expecting everything to go wrong today, expect it to go right.
…Instead of cursing the things that aren’t perfect in your life, be grateful for the things that are.
…Instead of stumbling in the darkness, be the one to light a candle.
The world truly is a beautiful place, when we’re able to see it that way. Each day we’re given countless opportunities to show up for good. Don’t you think today would be a good day to try it and see what happens?
No matter what shows up on the outside, be positive.
No matter what others tell you, keep the faith.
No matter your bank balance, your marital status, or your weight, know that you are a child of the Universe, and abundant blessing are waiting for you. You deserve to be happy.
All you have to do is show up with a grateful attitude and watch what happens. It seems so simple, when in truth, it actually is. :)
