“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.”

I have two of my beautiful friends to thank for the inspiration for my blog post today. Firstly, Sasha for sharing such an inspirational post on Facebook this morning, which is sitting just above these few sentences.
And my wonderful friend Pia, for sharing the video that you can watch below. It has just the most lovely sentiment and sweetly and succinctly communicates a very simple message, and one that I live by, every day.
What we see, is what we look for.
‘Finding Love’ by Hailey Bartholomew from You Can’t Be Serious.
I spent a lot of my life in a very cynical space. I sometimes struggled to see the good in people, things and situations. Sometimes I was fearful that something bad was going to happen or someone was going to screw me over. Of course, I wasn’t always in this space, and when I wasn’t, I was occupied by how fantastic life was, and how brilliant and amazing people are.
In the last 12 months though, I have decided that I want to occupy my time, thoughts, feelings and energy on the positives in life. I have decided to see the good in everything in everyone, and that change has needed to start with myself and come from within.
When we learn to stop judging ourselves, we can stop judging others. When we understand that there is no right or wrong, nor good or bad, we can allow things just to simply be. When we decide to concern ourselves with living our own lives from a place of love and truth, it no longer matters what other people think or say.
So, my question for you today is, what would you like to experience more of in your life, and therefore what do you need to start to look for more of?
For me? I choose peace, love, truth, wisdom and abundance.
Sending you lots of love, hugs and light,
