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.
