I'd like to ask you something....when you look at your current path; the one you are on right now...turn and look to see if it has been peaceful or full of heartache.
How do we create a path full of joy and peace, rather than sorrow and disappointment?
It all comes down to accountability. We are accountable for ourselves first and foremost. This is not a selfish endeavor. Even as I write these words, there is still this little part of my energy that says, "God is first, your kids are first." I know in the deepest parts of myself that I need to be accountable to me first. When I am, I am the happiest, other people (kids included) and situations fall in line. Things work out for the best.
Which brings me back to my original question. How do we create a path full of joy and peace? Recognizing that we have the Opportunity everyday to Perceive any situation, argument, conflict etc. Differently, Opens us up to a whole New World that we are creating rather than experiencing in the same way we always have and/or how we were taught.
So the next time you catch yourself experiencing feeling of unhappiness, try this simple exercise. Say to yourself.."I am Willing to See this Differently." Slowly it starts to change how you feel about whatever it is. You just might find yourself feeling more Joyful!!
