♥Welcome to Friday~~ Finding Beauty ♥
This year, when I decided I would start the Friday~~ Finding Beauty — my goal of course was to create a successful meme– but it was a bit on the selfish side for me.
Like many, the negative voices in my head have played too large a part in my life– often times I felt I was negative– thus when we focus on the negative we have more negative in our lives.
And simply the more we focus on the positive and beautiful the more our life becomes positive– you get the idea, especially for those of you who have read The Secret.
Albert Einstein said– “Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is the definition of INSANITY.”
Change ISN’T easy. I needed skills that would help me change.
Three ways to motivate change:
1– Pain– When pain of remaining the same overrides the pain to change.
2– Discipline— Do what you have to do, when you have to do it, whether you feel like it or not.
3– Understanding, that you will spend your life in pain. The pain of discipline or the pain of regret for not changing.
So– I decided to CHANGE how I looked at my life and become more grateful. Create an ATTITUDE of GRATITUDE.
Bill Gates said “In Business and Life, you don’t get what you WANT only what you expect!”
Studies have shown that one has to repeat an action 21 times before it starts to become a habit— So I challenged myself every time I stopped at a stop light to look around and purposefully look for some BEAUTY. I have been doing it for over a month now and I laugh at some of the things I see.
This week I pulled up behind a bus full of kids. As boys will sometimes do, they started sticking their tongues out and crossing their eyes… I laughed. Then I remembered I had my camera with me…
I think this was a great example of what BEAUTY is– it was there…and I captured it.
Thanks to you darling boys, who made my day!
