Dreams, not deficiencies

Is there something in your life that you are dissatisfied with? Do you wish for more, in some area?

If you’re looking through the lens of possibility, these are called dreams. And they’re awesome.

Perspective shift

I don’t know about you, but for all my naturally positive attitude sometimes I just need a spiritual kick in the butt. Apparently today is that day, because Holy Wow did the above image rock me.

Yup. It’s a needed reset. I had not realized I was becoming bogged down with that Other Stuff.

The interesting thing for me is that although I have a daily gratitude journal (which I love and highly recommend), this specific focus on what is actually working seems to be exactly the reminder I need in the face of, well, the current seemingly many opposites of that.

So I’m beginning a running list:

Peace, grace, and the courage to be both

you will cast just two votes:
