And it Works.............

I have been rolling along for the last several years: doing what I do and being who I am. Things were pretty good and I was content. Last year however I made a couple of subtle changes, mostly in my thinking and as a result of these things have for the most part really been a lot better.

I turned the big seven zero and decided that I was good enough and completely whole as I am. I am easier now and pay a lot more attention to the world around me. I actively decided to travel more, to make new friends and I welcomed a new dog to my pack to honor the one I lost.

I remember a long time ago hearing "that nothing is so good or bad that thinking won't make it so." I always thought this was true but last year I dedicated myself to it and viola.......it works.

I made two trips last year: Mongolia and Egypt. I normally travel once a year. Both of these trips were terrific and I made new friends on each. This year I already have two trips booked and I am planning at least one more.

I consciously made a couple of more friends where I live as well, and one is traveling with me in June. Was I just lucky? I don't think so. I believe that my thinking made all the difference and things definitely come to those who believe they will and decide to be open to them. Yes I decided to be open to much more, and believe that made the difference. When I look back to my life in the past I think I may have been closed to the future. No more.........and you know what? It works.

I took this yesterday. This lovely flower bloomed inside: just like me.

Good morning Sheila Anderson, how we think has a lot to do what we do and which direction our lives go.  I'm so happy to hear you're traveling more, I think seeing new places and meeting people from other parts of the world is the best experience.

I had the "decision" to open myself to joy in the world again in 1998. 1997 was a terrible year and left me bitter and sad.  1998 was the best fall ever... Donald came into my life and made it complete.
