“You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle” — Paulo Coelho
Pay attention to what you are paying attention to. Do you tend to point out what’s not working, what needs to be corrected, or someone’s faults or flaws? IF this is all you are noticing, then you are missing what’s working, how much someone is doing, or how perfectly something could work out if you’re not getting in the way. What you pay attention to becomes the magnet for your life. The very things you don’t want or like become the mold for what you are creating.
Pay attention to, focus on and speak about what is working, no matter how small. Notice how things work out. Speak about the best in people and how much they do actually give and do. Watch how your life begins to grow in a more positive direction instead of recreating more of what you don’t want.
Reflection: What is my favorite litany of complaint? What could I focus on instead?
Affirmation: I turn my attention to what is working. I notice the positive. I speak what I like and want into being.
