I have just read a Wonderful Quote by Marian Wright Edelman, founder of the Children's Defense Fund. This quote is out of her book "The Sea is So Wide and My Boat is So Small"
Quote reads "Dont Dwell on what you Lack, Dwell on what you have and use it to the fullest with Gratitude. Dont Dwell on your Failures-Learn from them and Move On. Dont Dwell on your fears and sorrows-Dwell on Your Hopes" Pretty Amazing Stuff if you think about it.
Some of us are really good at Dwelling on the Negative things in Life. I consider myself a Very Positive Person, but I do sometimes Dwell on things that are Negative and Out of My Control! There is a maried of lists of things to think about that are not positive, the economy, our Health Care system, our parents that are getting old and frailer, our children and the challenges that they will face as they age, etc.
I have decided to be more positive, I will not participate in any negative talk or join in group (s) when they are being negative. It may be difficult at times, but I think that is is doable. Life really can be an exciting, adventurous etc if you let it!
So my question to you is "What are you going to Dwell on This Year and in the Years to Come?"
