The only way to have a friend is to be one.”… Emerson
Who are your friends? What do they mean to you?
No matter where you go, a friend is there, waiting to meet you. Take a look at how each person showed up in your life today, who they are, and how you interact with them.
It may be a deep friendship or just a passing pleasantry, but each time you give or receive friendly energy, you gain an adaptable and gentle way of being, which carries you through all types of situations, bringing a richer and better you to the world and to yourself.
Speak kindly to someone you have never met before, and don’t expect to see again. Smile at someone who passes instead of looking away.
Think kind thoughts about the people you don’t like, and even more, about the ones you do. When you soften your point of view, life becomes more friendly, a better place to be.
Be a good friend to yourself, listening to your feelings and thoughts, and thinking of ways to enjoy life more.
Make a note to yourself about thinking in a positive way about who your friends are, and expect to meet them in unexpected places.
“Existence is a strange bargain. Life owes us little; we owe it everything. The only true happiness comes from squandering ourselves for a purpose.”… William Cowper
How do you visualize yourself in the process of life? Are you a force, an individual, part of a team? The truth is, you are a combination of all these, and more. When you get in true alignment with your ability to step into the moment, you see more possibilities every minute of the day.
Take up the attitude of being able to change things, and you will gain more of that ability. Pay close attention to the things you can do to make life better for others, and for yourself. There’s always an opportunity.
Use the insights you have about where you are to visualize what you want to become, and make a step toward that, right now.
Keep doing it, and your path will begin to open and be lit by unknown forces that are deep within you, waiting to spring forth. You are more than you think you are.
Just one action at a time, you create today, the day you have to work with. By the time “tomorrow” gets here, it will be “today”! Small steps to make use of what you observe will show you the hidden ability you have, to co-create your world. What you pay attention to grows and becomes more powerful, drawing more of what you want into your life.
