Right or wrong?
I feel like it’s easy to know when something’s right but much more difficult to know when something’s wrong. At least that’s been my experience. Right brings a joy that transcends current circumstances. Being grateful seems right. Recognizing and appreciating all I have seems right. Complaining about what I don’t have seems wrong, it seems selfish.
The Secret talks about the power of attraction and how we attract what we focus on. I have to agree because in retrospect I realize that’s been the story of my life. So now that page has turned and there’s all this potential out there. I can see, feel, and almost reach out and grab it. You can call it the magic of believing, although any number of terms apply equally. What you call it doesn’t matter as long as you focus on what you want and bring it forward in your life.
If you focus on what you don’t have and what you don’t want you will bring more of those into your life because the chain of those thoughts will attract more of the same. So instead of thinking about being broke think about being rich and you will begin to form the actions that will lead to that result. Thoughts are things and they have the power to influence other thoughts.
I’ve been a writer for as long as I can remember. I’ve written poems and short stories — never for publication and rarely for sharing. I’ve written for myself. I’ve written to document the past and to share a curious observation. I’ve written because the words channeled out of me like water from a spigot. I’ve written because I had no choice.
