Turn positive facts into positive experiences



Good things keep happening all around us, but much of the time we don't notice them; even when we do, we do, we hardly feel them. Someone is nice to you, you see an admirable quality in yourself, a flower is blooming, you finish a difficult project—and it all just rolls by. Instead, actively look for good news, particularly the little stuff of daily life: the faces of children, the smell of an orange, a memory from a happy vacation, a minor success at work, and so on. Whatever positive facts you find, bring a mindful awareness to them—open up to them and let them affect you. It's like sitting down to a banquet: don't just look at it—dig in!

Beautiful thoughts, Es! I am also fond of reminiscing on happy thoughts and I always try to magnify goodness done to me. I missed our farming this weekend. I'll pick up the award one of these days -really grateful for it! *hugs*

HI, Tereza.
What a beautiful text for refletions.
People use to forget the simple things in life.
If each one of us, used to think more about the God´s wisdom, like the magnificent things we can find out in the mother nature, maybe, we should be happier and thankful to take part of it`s miracle, called life.
Thanks for you visiting me. Did you like the flowers ? Please, take them. That`s a present for you.
Hugs from your friend of Rio de Janeiro - Brazil

Wonderful words. I just updated my blog with some fall photos and my "theme" was trying to find a positive for every negative I thought. Then I come over to check out your blog and voila, your post was similar to mine. Thanks for your wonderful post again, I do so enjoy them all.
