Let's Change Our Perspective

Let's Change Our Perspective

Hello Friends,

I don't know about you, but I'm really tired of being bombarded with depressing messages about the state of the world. I know it's important news, but I truly believe that succumbing to the misery around you is a choice. Ultimately, we are responsible for our own happiness. We make decisions about where we place our focus and as such are more powerful than most of us realize. I would like to take this opportunity to offer you a different perspective. Not to trivialize the gravity of this worldwide crisis, but rather to search for and even acknowledge the wisdom behind it.

I believe that everything happens for a reason, even when the reason is not apparent to us.This pandemic is allowing our planet to expand in new ways. Every moment of discomfort brings us to create a new desire. When we are sick, we want health. When we are poor, we want financial ease. When we are cold we want warmth, and so on.

Think about this:

For decades, there has been concern about greenhouse gas emissions. Since this crisis, pollution and greenhouse gas emissions have fallen across the planet. I find that a rather comforting thought.

Doctors and scientists from all over the world are working frantically to find a cure. In fact, a team of scientists in California believe they may well have achieved that. That is tremendously encouraging, and isn't that just a perfect example of how our desire and focus drives results? That could never happen with a team of naysayers and fear mongers.

Nothing changes the world like large scale difficulty, so now, more than ever, we are reexamining how we communicate, how we conduct business and how we live together. Imagine how difficult things would be now if we did not have the technology to communicate electronically and hold web based meetings. I am in awe of the perfection of the evolution of things, including technology. Everything materializes in the right place, at the right time and in the right way. We are so blessed, really.

The world hasn't stopped and it is not going to end. It is merely pivoting. All things happen as part of the eternal and natural expansion of creation. We are fortunate to be a part of this rapidly expanding civilization. Trust that we are being looked after and fear nothing. Embrace a mentality of wellness over illness. Choose joy over misery. Focus on finding solutions over pointing out problems. Be compassionate without being drawn into the drama of chaos. Do your part and know that all is well.

Good redirect Renee ;~)
In his book: The Greatest Secret Earl Nightingale states: “what we think about most we become” … that is the “secret””
There is “nothing new under the sun”
Scripture states: “as a man thinks in his heart … so he is”
I just commented in @KevinBakers post … he mentions “psychological change”
as mentioned there:
Brian Tract wrote this book: “Change your thinking … change your life”
This is “psychological change” a “change of perspective”
Many human qualities … those “within” … if “changed” will produce: “change”
The heart, the mind, attitudes, words … if you “change” these … LIFE will follow
Internal changes usually have a catalyst … and require a Compass
The question is always what is your thought compass leading you?

Your focus is a compass … determines outcomes & destinations
A mindset & spirit of wellness or infirmity?
Joy or misery?
Wisdom or woe? (I can’t remember if it was you or @Cyndi Wilkins who said this)
Gratitude or entitlement?

I do like the way you see things ... and as I said elsewhere today ... you have a marvelous sense of humor ;~) "sole mates"
I thank you both for the laugh on "judging size" ...

#19 Well, Renée, I guess that size really does matter to some. Perhaps if more couples had the same size in shoes, there'd be more sole mates?

#18 @Ken Boddie, I think men in general have difficulty judging size. I know I've been fooled more times than a lady should admit. Have an immeasurably happy day!

You're certainly a glass half full sort of girl, Renée. Perhaps you have a point. When we are pissed off with so much pollution, lo and behold, the planes stop flying and the traffic cuts back to a pretty gentle and steady dribble, instead of a fume-ridden stressed out rabble. By the way, as an engineer, I tend to see the glass as twice the size it really needs to be. Take care and keep smiling. 🤗
