Yesterday I did a lunchtime yoga class for a local company, and ended with a reading from one of my favorite books given to me by my mentor Todd Durkin, “The Power of Attitude”, by Mac Anderson. The reading was titled Expect The Best. “It’s a funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best. You very often get it.” ~ W. Somerset Maughn
In the story the little boy asked his grandfather about the world situation, in which the grandfather replied his heart was conflicted. The grandson asked who would win the fight; hate and anger, or peace, love, and forgiveness? He simply replied, “the one I feed”.
We are all busy, we all deal with world events, local events, and everything else going on around us and in our lives. There are ups, downs, and sometimes sideways type days. How we choose to think about everything going on around us can shape our life. In his book, Anderson calls it “a life-changing law of the universe…You become what you think about.” What have you been thinking about? Are your thoughts guiding your life? What if you took this summer to try this?
