"If all you did was just look for things to appreciate you would live a joyous, spectacular life."
It's a gray, gloomy day and you have just dragged your weary body out of bed. Sighing, you reflect on what is waiting for your attention.
What happens next depends on the CHOICE you make about how to experience your day.
You can predict and expect a difficult scenario with a long to-do list of things you DO NOT want to do.
You can be the eyes and ears of Love, just looking for beautiful things to enjoy.
Like the shower-rain cascading down your body, waking up your sleepy skin with a splash of good-morning messages...leaving you refreshed and now wide-awake and alert...
Like the bounce of your sneakers and the comfort and warmth of your snuggly socks...
Like the allure of coffee brightly brewing just for your pleasure...
And the bed you just made with pillows fluffed and blankets smoothed, ready for your next sojourn that evening
And the scent of the freshly mowed grass of your early bird neighbor
And the stirrings of other family beginning their preparations for the day.
Gray day or not...you have just started YOUR day with an abundant supply of beautiful inner weather because you CHOSE to look for things to appreciate.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And you, beautiful soul that you are, know that the Divine Universe loves you unconditionally and has gifted you with many simple pleasures and, therefore, you are eager to uncover, discover and revel in their glory.
You are finding everything right and beautiful and joyous in the world.
And that's YOUR spectacular life!
